What’s Mid-Century Modern Style?
This decor style derives from the middle of the 20th century – mainly after World War II. Most sources generally accept that the heyday was roughly 1945-1969. Mid-century modern has many of its roots in Germany’s Bauhaus style. Thanks to the migration from Europe after World War II, designers brought this type of interior décor o the United States, where it became extremely popular and still is. Today this style got a revival because many home buyers find it elegant, practical and comfortable, especially for outdoor-indoor living.

What Are Mid-Century Modern Color Schemes?
Mid-century modern style is about primary colors and contrasts, so be generous using color unless you love neutrals a lot. But even in this case you will need some bold and muted shades of yellow, red, orange, green, brown and black, too. You may also dip into warm earthy tones and mix them up with neutrals to achieve a more boho-inspired look. Earthy tones are also among the current trend, so you get an edgy space, too.

What Materials To Use For A Mid-Century Modern Living Room?
Materials you are using are very important for a mid-century modern space to make it feel and look like mid-century and to add interest to it at the same time. First of all, you should have rich-stained wood with grains seen – that’s a must for rocking this style. Second, you may add rattan for a more relaxed feel – it pairs up beautifully with stained wood and woven items. Third, think of leather – that’s another super popular for this style material. Brick and stone can be also integrated into decor, especially if you are going to have an accent wall or a fireplace. Shiny metals are welcome but stay away from mixing up finishes and don’t use too many metallic accents.
