Grays, White, Colors and Wood my Gosh!
Mid-Century Modern has a lot of grays, whites, and rectilinear shapes, which can create some very clean lines and cool spaces. Succinctly put, less can be boring. (Sorry Meis!)
So what to do?
Now a days, it’s possible to mix in contemporary elements to add more visual interest into your interior design.
“You can’t be afraid to use different styles that work together. A home, means clients have their individual tastes and the design has to speak to them. It should put a smile on their face not adhere to principals. The important thing is the elements have to feel right, flow together from room to room. You might not be able to put two different styles in the same bathroom room, but in two different bathrooms, the can go beautifully.”
“You can also warm up with furnishings. Modern elements create a great background that make colors, curves and natural woods pop. I have to give a lot of credit to our clients who did the furnishings. She really has great taste.”
