Super-Retro

How retro can you get? Super-retro?

Just looking at this living room makes me feel as if I’m right there in the 70s. Wood paneling on the walls, turquoise fabric upholstered sofas; all part of the fantastic 70s style. I’ve actually recently seen wood paneling used in commercials, sitcoms and even in magazines. Do you think it’s going to make a comeback in popularity? Would you be a follower of the trend if it were to come back?

Saarinen Dining

When it comes to dining room furniture, there’s one designer that always comes to mind; Eero Saarinen. So many of his modern classics have become even more popular over the past few years. You probably can’t watch TV or look at a magazine without seeing one or more of his stunning designs. For instance, the Saarinen Dining Table has become a staple in modern design today. This simple dining table has exploded in popularity and I believe will continue to do so. The dining table itself looks great with simple wire back chairs, but it looks even better with Saarinen’s own Tulip Chairs (also see the arm chairs). They accent the table perfectly with their red cushions and add a unique look to any space.

What do you think about Saarinen and his furniture designs?

Creative Play Space

Inspire creativity.

Sometimes that seems impossible to do with all of life’s busy daily tasks, but it’s important. It’s even more important to inspire creativity in your child’s life if you want them to grow. This child’s playroom is not only unique but it’s amazingly creative. A large teepee allows any kid to have fun in a private space made just for them. Nature-inspired furniture is also a great addition that this space includes; the table and stools, the shelving against the wall, the large pendant lamp and all of the small forest animals are perfect in this kids room.

Would your child fall in love with a great playroom like this?

Stylish Living with Area Rugs

So maybe these rugs aren’t quite that modern, but the concept of multiple area rugs scattered around a large space seems to create such a unique look and feel. Traditionally, one large area rug would be placed in the center of a sectional or sofa set to pull the space together and designate an entertaining space. Not anymore! Not only does this living space have multiple area rugs, but it also has a variety of different areas for seating throughout the room. This definitely isn’t traditionally decorated in any way, but it’s got quite a bold style that anyone could love.

I’m still amazed by the use of many different area rugs. Who would have ever thought this would be a good look? What do you think about this living room decor?

An Interior that has it all

It’s impossible to miss this amazing sleek, chic living room. A gathering of transparent ornaments act as a curtain-like separation from this entertaining space to other parts of this home. The unique decoration is not only pretty and functional, but I’m sure it’s a conversation-starter as well. I know I wouldn’t be able to resist asking about this unbelievable room divider.

But the class in this space doesn’t stop at the decor; The choice of furniture is absolutely stunning. From the large patterned sectional and bright accent pillows to the classic Plywood Lounge Chairs & Ottomans, this living space has it all.

Accentuate with a Butterfly


The Yanagi Bentwood Butterfly Stool always makes a great accent in any space. Place it in the corner of any room as a cool decorative piece or use it to its full potential as a foot stool – both will add a unique style to your home’s decor. The shape of the Yanagi Bentwood Butterfly Stool is incredibly unique which makes it an instant conversation piece when set in any living or entertaining space. Just look at the stool and tell me you don’t want one; You can’t do it, can you? I didn’t think so. It’s perfect in every way, don’t you think?

Mid-Century & Traditional Styles Come Together

So what do you think about mixing two completely different styles together in one room?

That’s exactly what was done in this dining room to achieve such an amazing looking interior. The traditional chandelier combines so perfectly with the retro plywood dining chairs, doesn’t it? The simple flower decor on the table brings the whole look together and creates a rather homey space where everyone wants to gather for dinner and entertaining.

A Whole Lot of Black & White




With so many different colors available in furniture and decor today, I always wondered why one would choose to decorate their home with a black and white or neutral color scheme. However, after looking at a multitude of neutral, beautifully decorated living rooms I now see why; It’s absolutely stunning! I’ve realized, myself, that color isn’t totally necessary to have a cozy space. There isn’t one bit of color in any of the spaces above and yet they are gorgeous. Clean and simple with a tad of playfulness added with just a little bit of patterns, textures and accessories. I’m now a believer!

How do you feel about neutral colored living spaces?
