HOME TRENDS:

Mid-Century Modern Colors

Home trends come and go, sometimes we look back and remember what our homes looked like and are happy that these trends are gone! But there are also trends we are happy to see come back into style, like today’s revitalization of the Mid-Century Modern design.

As I continue to work with more millennial homebuyers I notice a trend of creating simpler living spaces with less decorations, clean lines, and peaceful colors. 

I’ve pulled together a handful of images that I believe are a beautiful representation of how you can introduce the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic into your home using specific colorways in the furniture, art, and paint colors. I hope these can serve as inspiration for new homebuyers to decorate their house.

Mid Century Modern Colors

Clean lines and peaceful colors are abundant in this entryway, the Regale Blue painted door stands out against the white walls and dark stained floor.

A large piece of art can make all the difference, this Real Red print provides a gentle and organic shape to the room providing a touch of modern.

There are endless options when it comes to furnishing a room, choosing furniture that has a Mid-Century Modern design can help the room feel open and less cluttered. Here a Gold Crest couch fits into an otherwise white room.

A color not seen in a lot of homes, Kale Green is a deep and beautiful color that works perfectly when there are plants in a room.

Looking to update a bathroom and give it that clean Mid-Century Modern feel? A CloudBurst colored accent wall or tile can help your bathroom stand out and feel organic and simple.

Throughout my years in real estate I have had the opportunity to tour thousands of homes and work with hundreds of buyers and sellers. While each person has their own taste and aesthetic I am always at peace when I walk into a Mid-Century Modern home and I continue to find that these homes attract eager buyers. With more and more millennial homebuyers in the market for their first home, I will not be surprised to see this Mid-Century Modern revitalization continue for years to come.

Positioning your home in the best ‘light’ possible with designer light fixtures

Looking for an enlightened way to add character to your new home or an outdated room? In recent years, many homeowners have turned to designer light fixtures to rejuvenate their home.

Light fixtures go far beyond function, they serve as a form of artwork and design that helps reinvigorate a living area and bring warmth to the home.

Lighting design is a secret weapon of interior designers. There are many types of light fixtures, including ceiling dome fixtures, recess lighting, and surface-mounted light. If you’ve recently moved into a new home and are looking to elevate and update your living space, adding a sculptural, surface-mounted light is perfect for you!

Surface-mounted lighting exposes the artistic elements of the fixture itself as well as the home’s interior architecture. This style of lighting includes chandeliers, pendant lights, and sconces. With multiple styles, designs and arrangements, the options for adding light fixtures to your home are just about endless.

When my team and I tour a new listing, our focus is always to make the home as attractive as possible to potential buyers. This is, of course, achieved through minor cosmetic updates such as fresh paint, newly stained floors, and more. Recently, however, we have been working with clients to identify additional design details, like the addition of a statement-making new light fixture, which can create that extra spotlight for the home.

Working with local interior designers and showrooms, we have helped many clients update their homes prior to listing.

Below, we have compiled some of our favorite uses of surface-mounted light fixtures from local architects, designers, and showrooms.

These interiors have inspired my team and many others to add light fixtures that accomplish both form and function.
