A Tastefully Retro Mid-Century Home

We're feeling inspired by this mid-century home that manages to be filled with era-appropriate furnishings without feeling like a time capsule. The key for this look is to maintain a muted color palette and keep floor plans spacious and naturally well-lit.

The dining and living rooms feature some beautiful classic pieces, but they feel contemporary because they are paired with an eclectic mix of other furnishings and accessories. The kitchen, being a place where modern convenience is most appreciated in a home, has the most modern looks of all the rooms. But because its finishes are so simple with solid white, walnut, and stainless steel surfaces, the style complements the vintage flavor in the rest of the house. Open shelving with a colorful backdrop is another modern touch that doesn't fight the style of the other living quarters. Along the same line of thinking, the large-scale chalkboard wall is another nod to modern living in the kitchen.
