If you have a collection of treasured pieces and vintage furniture, an excellent way to help showcase the pieces' texture and charm is to pair them against bright white walls. Since the original mid-century modern ceilings of the space are meant to be the room's main focal point, the pure white walls help enhance this feature rather than detract from it.

If you find beige and tan too neutral or impersonal for your own home, muted grays may be a much better fit. For versatility, choose grays with hints of blue or white that will pair well with orange or green like the orange chairs used in this room. The circular table grounds the airy design, and the chairs compliment stripes in the floor rug.
Layers of textures, from the wallpaper to the chair fabric, sideboard face and pillows, create an organic feel and an experience of depth. The Maxwell solid walnut cabinet is a statement sideboard adding warmth to the room's cool tone look.
