When designer Kress Jack had a month to furnish a three-bedroom home, he turned to a wide range of sources to find pieces that were available right away. “Luckily the clients wanted to incorporate as many vintage pieces as possible to give the home character and uniqueness. You can find great vintage pieces, including great bargains, if you aren’t afraid to run around a bit. For this home, we bought pieces from local flea markets, vintage stores, and estate sales. For inexpensive Mid Century reproductions I like HD Buttercup and West Elm. I also like to repurpose pieces when I can and give them a new life—like the coffee table, a midcentury piece that we turned into a terrarium by adding sand and air plants, and a Plexiglas top to contain the mess.”
Midcentury Modern Sitting Room Features Built-In Workspace
At the other end of this midcentury modern sitting room, a built-in desk and bookshelves provide an unassuming space for reading and working. A plush gray area rug below coordinates well with the stormy ceiling, tying the sensible, cool-toned look together.
The walls are the stars in this chic sitting room: one with board and batten paneling in cool white, one rustic stone and one made mostly of windows. The simple, neutral furniture lets the textures shine.
This beautiful, mid century modern bathroom, is phase one in a two-phase, whole home renovation to transform the current design into a stylish, elegant midcentury modern space. In the bathroom, and throughout the home, the cabinets are stained in Alder Wood and are finished off with a Pure White Caesarstone countertop. The shower features Kohler Purist Fixtures in Vibrant Modern Brushed Gold finish, while the flooring is Large Hexagon Tile from Dal Tile, and a decorative tile made of “Illica” ceramic tile gives the space a bit of extra pop and pizzaz.
