Vintage style mid-century style is still alive and well, and homeowners are donning the look in their homes, from their bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms. It doesn’t really matter where you decide to incorporate the modern look of the mid-century décor, it is classy, and it is classic. One thing that many people love about the style is the simple, clean lines. This simplistic look is great for those who like less clutter, simplistic designs, and the wide range of what you can do with this look. For those who of you have always loved the look of the older era, but want a fresh new spin on the vintage style, incorporating modern pieces into the mix is a great way to bring the old, into the new so that it represents a more updated version of the 1950’s. For ideas on how to design your own mid-century, modern dining room, you can start with a few ideas of how to pick and choose color schemes, what types of pieces of furniture fit best in this décor style, and what types of pieces you can mix and match to create a balanced look through the two styles of mid-century and modern.
When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
You may want to consider leaving one wall as a focal wall, creating a distressed brick wall for an industrial look, or expose some brick areas on a couple dry wall, walls, as if the brick is coming through. Ceilings, and flooring are also ways to use rustic or industrial types of materials to enhance the feeling of being in a warehouse, barn, or other industrial environment. Wood flooring, or granite all work in an industrial dining room, and your ceiling might really complete the room with large wood beams or exposed piping.
The color palette for a transitional room are typically smooth and creamy. Creams, light browns, and muted blues, greens and grays, among others. Wood furniture pieces can be dark shades of wood, and are the preferred look for this type of décor as opposed to light oaks. The same color scheme for wood flooring choices also applies, using dark cherry wood, Mahogany, and other dark colored woods. Splashes of color should be limited. A colorful flower arrangement on your dining table or buffet will break up the understated tones in the room, or add accent colors in your dining chair cushions or draperies, are other options.
