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 stairs to the loft’s second bedroom were painted in a durable porch paint, then a tightly woven carpet was tacked down to minimize scuffs (and noise!). The pretty blue weave is tough enough to withstand daily use but will be very easy to change out down the road, should the homeowner want to change up 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.

When the doors open into this Midcentury Modern foyer, guests are immediately greeted by two antique horses that add symmetry to this funky space.

The giant blue and cream wicker rug in the center of the space adds texture while tying the design together.
Midcentury Modern Details in Open, Bright Hall With Hardwood Floor, Thin Wall Table and White Brick Chimney
Keeping this hall section uncluttered accentuates the spacious, light look of the open floor plan. A dark wood, thin wall table pops against the white wall and matches the exposed beam visible on the ceiling. A simple tabletop display adds just enough personal touch without overpowering the fresh look of the home. A patterned, textured carpet sets a cozy outline for an in-floor fireplace lounge.
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.
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.
Light blue-and-brown geometric wallpaper decorates the small bar area in this midcentury-modern living room. Neutral curtains frame the window and complement the room's palette, while a small bar with a pair of wooden stools provides seating for two.
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.
