Mid-Century Exteriors You’ll Love

Mid-century style homes are not only classics, they’re also an increasingly popular trend today in home buying. More and more shoppers are looking for those 1950s style homes all across the country. They’re looking for the classic mid-century modern exterior; you know the ones…


The ones with the retro shapes and the large floor to ceiling style glass windows…

Or the ones with the brightly colored front doors with the narrow rectangular glass windows… They’re all part of the classic mid-century style. Here’s a few more stunning mid-century home exteriors. They’re all so beautiful, I can only image how the interiors look. I’m sure they have a bunch of mid-century modern classics like the Saarinen Round Marble Dining Table or the Classic Plywood Lounge Chair & Ottoman.

Accent Mid-Century Living with Patterns

Orange you glad mid-century, retro modern style is in style these days? Ok, that was lame, but really, aren’t you glad mid-century style is in these days? The classic style is strongly centered on a broad range of furnishings from various designers, including Arne Jacobsen. Take for instance, this mid-century modern Egg Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen; It’s a fantastic piece that fits perfectly in any retro space. Speaking of retro spaces, there’s nothing that makes a space more colorful and even more mid-century than retro pattern wallpaper.

Mid-Century Medley

So we already know that wood paneling is in fact making a come back in interior design. We all love the mid-century modern style, so I’m happy to see this dining room does include some really great pieces of mid-century style furniture. The classic cream leather and wood dining chairs paired with the white wire chairs at the head of the table creates a unique area that is pleasant to dine in and entertain guests. What about the carpet though? I want to hear your thoughts on carpet in the dining room…

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?

Gray & Distracting Pattern

Whoa, that’s a lot of gray! Isn’t it? This mid-century style living room boasts various pieces of gray furniture with natural wood accents that fit right into this retro space. It’s definitely a great space, but I feel that the wallpaper is rather distracting with its small repeating pattern. There are so many other beautiful parts of the décor in the room, yet I barely even noticed them. For instance, the pendant light hanging above the coffee table – it has a quite unique and natural design. Do you find that one color or pattern can be overwhelming in a smaller space like this?

Keep Me Cozy, Hoop Chair

It’s a bit chilly and quite icy here in the metropolitan area. It’s just one of those days where all you can think about is curling up in front of the fireplace with a good book. Why not spend some time reading the newest bestseller in a Hans Wegner Hoop Style Chair? If that’s not cozy enough for you, go ahead and grab a fuzzy throw blanket or two. What more could you want on a cold, wet day?
