I realized this past weekend when a reader emailed me saying, “where is your Mid-Century Modern Living Room from Homegoods,” that I never shared the final room on the blog.  In April of this year, I worked for HomeGoods as a stylist to create a few rooms, one being a Mid-Century Modern living room. If you are not familiar with the design, check out my latest post on, “what is Mid-Century Modern.”

This space turned out so warm and cozy.

So what happens when I work for HomeGoods? I get to shop til I drop. Literally. I shopped 10 stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island buying everything I needed to create this amazing space. Having my theme implanted in my brain, I pick and choose items that I think will work in my room. Sometimes I pick wrong and I don’t end up using them but that’s ok, because buying back ups is key! Yes, I may leave a store with 4 or 5 side chairs and only end up using one but a girl needs options right?

The peggy looking coffee table is probably one of my favorite pieces in the room and yes, it was from Homegoods. Isn’t it adorable?

The table was perfect for creating an area for magazines, remotes and a tray filled with snacks.

I used an eclectic mix of pillows featuring blue and yellow. I love how they look against the brick wall.

Off to the side of the living room I created a vignette using this gorgeous Mid-Century console (yes from HomeGoods) and decided to hang a throw rug above it instead of artwork. I kind of like how the rug looks hung on the wall, the fringe adds a unique texture against the brick and looks fabulous with the sisal rug.

At the end of each photoshoot, I ask the photographer to snap a quick picture of me in the room. It’s the running joke now with everyone, “Jess wants her picture!” -ha. I need to document these awesome opportunities right? 😉

The Mid-Century Modern design is all about peggy little legs (wooden or metal) and clean sleek lines. Mixing in some rustic wooden elements help soften the look and create a warm atmosphere. Stay tuned, I will be sharing the dining table from this photoshoot next week. To find out how to make Mid-Century Modern work in your home, read my blog post over on the HomeGoods blog.
