Before minimalism, there was modern design. This is probably a bit of a misnomer when you consider the heyday of “modern” design was from 1940 to 1970.Mid-century modern is the branch of modern design that’s been trending heavily for decades. Devotees love its sleek, low lines and emphasis on blending interiors with exterior surroundings. To create a modern vibe in your home, decorate with warm, natural woods and crisp, clean neutrals. Expand on the theme of open spaces with smooth horizontal surfaces made from concrete, stone or glass. A muted backdrop allows colorful artwork, textiles and furniture to pop. Saturated colors like turquoise and canary yellow don’t appear overwhelming when placed within an environment of black, white, gray, or brown. You can complement this streamlined simplicity with eye-catching textures like plush pillows, shaggy rugs or velvety throws. Try to create sleek silhouettes with unusual or curvy furniture. Dramatic pendant lighting or other stylish room lighting can draw attention to unique interior features, such as stairs, paintings or fireplaces.
