How To Make Mid-Century Modern Living Room Designs


Interior design trends are like a spinning wheel, even trends in the past can be in demand again today, especially when it comes to interior styles that are timeless. That is the reason why in the last few years, interior design has been dominated by vintage and retro nuances. Among the many interior styles of the past, the mid-century modern style is the most sought after. You can bring that look and feel into your living room in an easy way that’s quite affordable.

Today I’ve put together some easy ways to bring this look back for contemporary interior design. Using simple lines, neutral colors combined with warm bright colors, and vintage furniture that brings you nostalgia. This set of living room designs looks minimalist but feels airy and timeless.

1. Modern look with contemporary design elements


Relive the retro feel with a more modern look. Choose a sofa or comfortable furniture with shapes and materials made of soft fabrics like velvet. Pair it with neutral colors and functional pieces of furniture that provide extra storage whenever you need it.


2. Furniture with vintage nuances


Keep the hallmarks of a mid-century style by choosing vintage furniture. Low seats, rounded edges, and the use of wood materials are hallmarks of modern mid-century design. The use of floor lamps with antique nuances is welcome. It doesn’t matter if it’s really vintage or not, you can still display it with the latest style trends.


3. Harmonious and balanced décor


A modern mid-century living room must be able to balance old and new styles. In this room, neutral walls balance the bright but warm colors typical of the mid-century style. Dark wood gives a calm touch to the room. The key is not to go overboard with adding different color accents and balance it out with relaxed hues.


4. Wall storage as a focal point


The combined storage area on the wall can be a focal point in the room and serves as decoration as well as practical storage. An attractive selection of wall modules adds a unique feel to the living room, while large storage boxes provide more space for displaying a variety of collectible items. Try to keep the overall appearance of the storage wall minimalist and airy.


5. Refresh the room with indoor plants


Bringing a natural atmosphere into the room is one of the hallmarks of mid-century interiors. Add various types of indoor plants to your favorite flowers to beautify the living room as well as freshen up the room. The green look and open space concept have proven to be effective in elevating the mood.
