Geometric Room Divider and Lime Green Door
The screen in this midcentury modern living room rests at the bottom of the stairs and was used in place of a railing. It mimics a piece of furniture and the square design adds an interesting textural element to the area. Design by Guy and Karen Vidal, owners Design Vidal, Silver Lake, California.
Metallic and Contrasting Neutral Midcentury Modern Foyer
In the entry of the home, designers chose to use colors that would acclimate guests to the home's bold metallic and contrasting neutral color palette. The artwork does exactly that, adding glam to the space without detracting from the apartment's beautiful views. Patterned wallpaper with a three-dimensional quilted effect was selected to envelop the space, while large scale, gold-leaf lamps sit on a console which emulates the wallpaper patter. To finish the space, designers hung a glass, Rod Sputnik chandelier for a spectacular statement upon entering the home.
The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
Graphic wallpaper makes for a striking background in this midcentury-modern entryway. Blue velvet chairs flank either end of the wood-and-metal console table, while a sunburst mirror on the wall above rounds out the look.
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.
The designers wanted the wow factor in the foyer of this home, so they added an art piece in the ceiling to draw the eye upward and add texture and dimension. Suspended from the ceiling are white pendant lights that give the space a little bit of modern flair, while a green velvet bench resting beneath a unique wood framed mirror makes the space pop. To give some boundaries to the space, designers added a woven rug.
Antique Furniture and Modern Art in Midcentury Modern Foyer
To bring warmth to the foyer, designers combined vintage pieces of furniture with modern art. This makes the space welcoming, but also connects the design to that of the living room. Antique horses on either side of the door usher guests into the home.
Vintage Horse Statues and Modern Art in Midcentury Modern Foyer
When the doors open into this Midcentury Modern foyer, guests are immediately greeted by two antique horses that add symmetry to this funky space. Antique furniture was added to give the space warmth, while brightly colored modern art, lamps and statues brighten the space by adding color. The giant blue and cream wicker rug in the center of the space adds texture while tying the design together.
This minimalist foyer features light hardwood floors, a coat closet and built-in wall shelf with decorative sculptures. Square interior windows line one wall, allowing a glimpse into the adjacent kitchen.
The pendants in the foyer were carefully chosen both to stand up to the scale of the high ceilings and seamlessly mesh with the home's midcentury modern roots. The artwork on the back wall is made up of yarn-like designs that add depth to the space.
