Interior Designer EDIT: Mid-Century Modern Living Room

Interior Designer Edit: Mid-Century Modern Living Room
 A wooden framed armchair, or a statement piece such as the Eames Lounge Chair will also help achieve the look. 

The TV series Mad Men has with a doubt played a role in the revival of the mid-century modern trend, but the popularity has undeniably also been ensured by the practicality, simplicity and versatility of the style. A leather sofa, for example, can be a sensible hard-wearing choice and a closed wooden sideboard provides great storage.

For the floor, choose wood, concrete or simple untextured tile and a large geometric or neutral rug. Traditionally smaller sofas were often favoured, but if that’s not practical, you dislike the wooden frames or crave greater comfort levels, you can buy some gorgeous larger sofas in a range of textures and finishes that have been designed in a mid-century style. A wooden framed armchair, or a statement piece such as the Eames Lounge Chair will also help achieve the look.

A bold strong colour is not to everyone’s taste for the walls, instead you can opt for white with striking artwork and, if you wish, an accent colour can be added via the accessories, including cushions (plain, geometric or repeating patterns, depending on your rug choice). You can possibly soften the room further with, for example, a simple grey wool blanket. Finally, an element of the outdoors is essential, so include houseplants of varying sizes, which will work beautifully with the wood and simple walls.


Rebecca McCloskey

Rebecca has been passionate about interior design for as long as she can remember and feels fortunate to be able to share this love and knowledge with her clients. A few years ago, she embarked on a huge renovation project of her own, turning two flats into a beautifully styled but multi-functional space. This renovation project only fuelled Rebecca’s love of interior design further, and it was from this that the ethos of her company, Weave Interiors, was born. A desire to achieve realistic design balance and work carefully within given budgets, whilst helping skilfully remove some of the decision-making stress for her clients. From single room revamps to whole house renovation work, Rebecca uses her eye for detail and ability to style, taking great pride in really getting to know the people she works with to achieve a home that’s right for them. Rebecca works on Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and London projects, but also offers online design packages.
