Stylish Mid-Century-Modern Home Design

The term mid-century-modern was coined during the mid-1950’s and, in the 80’s, author Cara Greenberg made sure to reaffirm it, making it an officially recognized design movement. Luckily, this movement survived until now and everyone is going crazy about it. And with good reason, because with its simple lines and retro style, the mid-century design is always a guarantee that your house will look extremely fancy.

Bold colors are very characteristic of the mid-century style because they’re a recollection of the classic color schemes used during the 1950’s and 1960’s that featured mustard and bright yellow, avocado green, tangerine and various shades of blue. They always make sure to look super cool in whichever room you choose to use them.
