interiors trend & wish-list – mid-century modern

I don’t know if I can pin-point the exact thing that first made me fall in love with mid-century
modern design, but what I do know is that I freaking love everything about it!
Maybe it’s the slim-legged furniture, or the clean lines that still manage to look
and feel cosy, but whatever it is, it seems like the mid-century craze is here
to stay in the world of interiors, and I am certainly not mad about it!

Blowing up
in the 50’s and 60’s, traditional Mid-Century style has developed a lot over
the years, and has been strongly honed in the last 5 years and has had the
‘modern’ title tagged on the end, to make sure we all know it’s up to date.

Today, the style still encompasses a lot of
the original influences. Clean lines, strong design and functionality,
geometric shapes & aesthetically-pleasing decor have all carried through to
the Mid-Century Modern style we know and love today!

The Mid-Century style in it’s
original form was heavily influenced by many factors. From architecture to
music, this style evolved quickly and drastically as a reflection of all the
changes in the world in the 50’s and 60’s.


For me, I love how
clean, tidy and almost editorial it looks in our old, terrace housed. The
fuss-free lines of our Jenson sofa deliciously clashes with the old Edwardian
character of our front room. (promise I’ll take some photos and show you all
one day!)


We have a spare
bedroom that I’d like to make into a room for me to get ready in, work in and
take photos in, and I’m dead-set on turning it into my perfect Mid-Century
Modern paradise! I’ve shared a few pieces on my wish list below – let me know
what you all think!
