3 Examples That Show How To Go Full Mid Century Modern

The mid century modern style can be introduced to any room with a single piece of retro furniture or a specific fabric print, but sometimes it’s more fun to go the whole hog. These three home designs not only employ mid century modern furniture, but each piece of wall decor and every floor is selected to accentuate this distinctive aesthetic. They are also illustrative of medium, small and large size properties (respectively) so there is something here to suit every scale. During the home tours we will find inspiration for mid century modern colour palettes, mid century modern style lighting, mirrors, and bookcases, which fill aspirational living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and quirky bathrooms.
