The pastel colors on the desks are muted reflections of the bolder jewel tones used throughout the rest of the space. Each of these details add a subtle pop of color to brighten up their corner of the room.
An eclectic grouping of artwork creates a colorful gallery wall in this midcentury living room and also pairs nicely with the rug. Neutral and wood furnishings help ground the space and prevent the design from feeling too busy.
A beautiful arc floor lamp illuminates this stunning midcentury modern living room. A light gray tufted sofa is a gorgeous addition to the crisp white room, and a wall of artwork adds a personal touch to the space.
A turquoise mid-century modern chair highlights the piping of the scalloped ottoman in this carefully designed family room. The white bookshelf's lime green backing adds color, contrast and movement to the space.
This gray and white midcentury living room has an open beam ceiling that gradually slopes down to outer glass walls. Furnishings are kept spare but striking: a gray leather sectional, lime green chair and vibrant wavy striped rug.
In this living room, patterns and textures work together to create an intimate vibe in this large, open space. Patterns like the cheetah print featured on this chair are prominent throughout the space and play off the modern art, bringing a cohesive design to the space.
A ribbed leather chair and matching ottoman adds a thick textural element complimenting the striped textural pattern of the area rug. Three dimensional triangle floor cushions bring an unexpected shape to the traditional rectangular angles of the room.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson transformed this once drafty, dated space into a warm and inviting modern living room with plenty of room to relax and entertain. The textured stucco walls were skim-coated for a smooth appearance and a red brick wall was updated with a fresh coat of white paint. Sarah filled the space with chic, mid-century modern furnishings and replaced old carpet with neutral wood flooring for a warm, inviting look.
Keep in mind that your furnishings should be in proportion not only to the actual size of the space but also to the perceived size — which can be affected by such elements as paint color or extensive areas of glass. In this project, the latter came into play. “The floor-to-ceiling windows make this small space feel larger, and to keep that open feeling the furniture needed to be scaled appropriately,” says architect Leslie Arnold. “Choosing furniture that was open at the bottom — i.e. pieces that do not go all the way to the floor — ’enlarges’ the room by allowing the entire floor to be visually unbroken. The simple, solid colored upholstered furniture allows the brightly colored rug and wall art to be the main focus of the room.”
Windows wrap around this home's open concept main living space that feels intimately connected to the landscape. Midcentury modern furnishings are a humble, yet lovely complement to the spectacular setting.
As seen on Home Town, the Walker's Laurel, MS existing living room was cold and uninviting with a dark stain on the existing wood floor and a solid entry door allowing minimal light into the large open space. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS living room now gives the feeling of being wide open and flows nicely from the full glass entry door into the living and dining areas. The living room features the original refinished hardwood floor, new curtains, and blind, updated furnishings and custom art designed by Mia's younger son Bryce. Host Erin Napier said the floors had to be sanded three times to get the old dark stain completely removed to allow the natural color of the wood to show again.
