Mid-century modern and modern are two different décor themes but in recent times mid-century classics have taken a bold and colorful turn that is a little too modern. If you wish to give your home a look done with the mid-century modern décor, then we have got some effective ways for you.
Modern furniture designs have a minimalist approach that is streamlined, straight-edged, and clean. But if you wish to combine the classic mid-century furnishings with the modern ones in a way that they good match, then create a non-ostentatious look. Break the typical straight-lines with some more organic shapes. Many mid-century modern pieces focus on rounded edges and curved lines that together add much-needed personality to a room. Also, curved furnishings can change the visual appeal of the entire space, making that curved piece the focal point.
Modern décor is ruled by neutral colors including shades of gray, brown, and beige. Though they are soothing, they can also look cold or sterile to some. You can change the dynamics by mixing some mid-century modern pieces to bring in the heat.
This way, your space can look stylish and sophisticated simultaneously. For instance, a sophisticated sofa and gray rugs are some modern pieces that can be combined with mid-century pieces like a display unit or cabinet made using solid woods in walnut and cherry finishes, maybe with some rounded corners.
If you can’t add many mid-century elements to your room, you simply can select one décor item and let it act as the showstopper in the room. For instance, one mid-modern accent chair that looks timeless and is always in style, can serve the role of the mid-century eye-catcher accent piece and complete your modern room.
If all your furniture is modern, you can soften the look and add a little livability, by using some larger accessories like lighting and rugs to add some mid-century flair. Use lighting in a metallic color palette to spruce up your space.
