Just stopping in real quick to say hello and let you all know it’s been a great week! I started a project with HomeGoods last Monday and will be finishing up in about a week. It’s been a crazy insane week as I shopped 6 stores in 3 days, filled 2 huge U-haul trucks with merchandise and have been styling multiple rooms at their headquarters in Massachusetts. I won’t lie, it’s been a lot of work but so much fun. Some of you may know that I did a similar design shoot with them last summer. Check out the summer social shoot post if you have a chance. This time around, my theme is completely different. Mid Century Modern with rustic elements. I have absolutely zero Mid Century in our home so needless to say, I studied this design for hours on pinterest, multiple websites and every magazine resource I could get my hands on. I am sure many of you are like me, you don’t have any professional training in interior design and just wing it. That is me! BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t create a fabulous space. I always tend to go with what I love and do my best to make it work. Many of you, including me, are DIY at heart. Here is what I have been doing all week, studying Mid Century Modern and finding ways to warm it up, keep it cozy and fall in love with the space.
Mid Century Modern
What the heck is Mid Century Modern? To keep it simple, it’s basically an era of furniture and architecture replicating the style from roughly the 1930’s – 1965. I remember growing up as a kid, my mom had some really cool furniture pieces that had peggy legs and clean lines. I absolutely love how the bamboo mirror below adds warmth to the Mid Century dresser.
The Brick wall below adds a rustic element to the warm toned peach couch and Mid Century glass cocktail table. Adding the fur throw softens the brick and clean lined furniture. I love this look!
I love the neutral textured rug below paired with the clean lined sofa and peggy wooden coffee table. Doesn’t it look cozy to you? A soft textured rug and fuzzy pillow can do wonders to clean lined furniture!
These are just a few of the inspirational features that I found this week while studying ways to warm up Mid Century Modern design. I love the idea of adding rustic elements to the space through warm wood tones and chunky wood pieces as Joanna Gaines, from the show Fixer Upper, did above in the HGTV image. I will be working all next week setting up my spaces featuring some amazing new pieces I found at Homegoods. Stay tuned, I will share more details of this project soon ;). Have a great weekend!
