Mid-Century design is here to stay. Once introduced in the 1950’s and 1960’s, it remained a staple in the decorating arena and is most recognized for its crisp, stylish and unique look. The use of neat lines and symmetrical shapes are eye-catching, and have a modern flair, even today. A mid-century décor theme can dress-up any room in the house, including the bedroom, kitchen, dining room, and living room. You can create a mid-century living room by utilizing a number of décor materials and ideas, from mid-century style furniture, art and décor pieces, light fixtures, and color schemes. If you love the mid-century look, and want to revamp your living room for a fresh new look, here are a few ideas that can help you get just the right look and feel of a modernized mid-century living room.
Trying to squeeze multiple pieces of small furniture into a tiny space will always make a room look cramped and congested. Instead, opt for a few bigger pieces like an L-shaped couch, which wraps around the room nicely and leaves plenty of space in the center.
Harmonizing is a way of saying to create an even visual flow through the room. You can harmonize with color schemes, and your furniture to draw the eyes from a large piece of furniture to the wall behind it by using a lighter shade of paint on the wall than the color of the sofa to draw the focus off the furniture and on to the space behind it.
Measuring your space where you plan to put the couch, first, before you shop, will help you know what will fit there when contemplating your choices. Be sure to allow for plenty of space on either side of the couch in front of it for a coffee table, if you plan to use one, as well as behind the couch if it will used as a walk space. Allow for the arm size of the sofa, too. Some sofas have larger arms than others, so be sure to include the arms, if they extend beyond the base of the couch. Remember, too, too large of a couch in a small room will leave it looking and feeling awkward, and it can quickly consume all of your space, both literally and visually.
