Look to abstract modernism when designing a dining room – its linear furniture and sharp, clean lines are perfect for a compact space. Incorporate a countertop that is almost shelf-like in its appearance, while bar stools with slim, spindle legs are a great choice for minimal and compact schemes. Continue the less-is-more approach on the walls and flooring.
It’s also important to know exactly how you’ll be using the space. If the dining experience alone isn’t enough to make you want a dining room then think some other things you can be doing in this space. It can be an entertainment area in which case there are certain elements that need to be included in the design. It can also serve as an office or as a library.
The 1950’s was a time when dark rich and robust colors were abundant in homes. Dark yellows or golden tones, saturated browns greens, oranges and other neutral tones, such as deep browns. So many of these colors were used in combination for a colorful display on patterned furniture, rugs, draperies and wall colors. Wallpaper was also a big trend for the 50’s, so if you prefer to create a focal wall of vintage style wallpaper, that will give you a starting point to lead you to where you want to take your décor theme for the rest of the room.
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.

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 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.
