Mid-Century Modern

It seems that Mid-Century Modern has become an overnight sensation.  I know this isn't true ... but the talk is up!  And here is another thing, as I have been studying up on this decorating period,  I have noticed all the familiarity ... then it hit me ... I am 50 ... I am not old, I am Mid-Century Modern!

This is Don (the one in the white shirt-circa 1968) as a young boy celebrating Christmas with his cousins!  Are you noticing the decor?  Look at the table, the lamp, the entryway, the shape of the sofas!

Here is a recent photo from Better Homes and Garden ... I've seen this coffee table before!

Really looking at this style, which I have never been a fan of, has inspired me to delve a little deeper.  And I am finding that there are pieces that I think are very "refreshing," if I can even use that term to describe something that is "so old"!  I hope you'll join me over the next few weeks as I discover how we can all feel at home with Mid-Century Modern!!




  1. I love this! Don has a lot of cousins.

  2. I really love mid-century modern style, but especially in furniture pieces like that coffee table. The slim legs and simple designs are lovely. Maybe not so much the bold patterned wallpapers from back then though!

  3. Oh my stars, that could have been a picture of my husbands family. They had 5 kids in their family so it really made me laugh! I, too am mid-century.
