Mid-Century Modern design is an iconic twentieth-century style that continues to captivate and excite us well into the twenty-first century.
With its sleek lines and warm tones, this style is perfect for those looking for a space that’s welcoming in nature and fun in design! What’s also special about this design style is that it’s not “one-size-fits-all.” Depending on your unique style, you can create a Mid Century Modern space that is anything you desire it to be: colorful or neutral, relaxing or energetic!
On today’s blog we are going to showcase a beautiful mid-century modern remodel by one of our designers as we illustrate and define some of the technical features that make up this unique design.
Mid-Century Modern is a style of architecture, and interior design that reflects World War II optimism, the growing economy, and the rapid rise of suburban living. This period roughly lasted from the mid-1940s to the mid-1960s. Suburban homes built during this time were fairly small, yet open, uncluttered, and airy. Efficiency was key. These homes were intentionally designed to be a fresh alternative to the darker, neo-classical styles of the earlier part of the twentieth century.
“Mid-Mod” is so appealing because it tends to blend organic and natural elements with clean and simple styling. Mid-mod design offers a sense of tranquility because of its horizontal tendencies and warm palettes. Less can be more in this design style.
Our designer’s primary design focus for this kitchen remodel was functionality. What was originally thought to be a pretty limited space turned out to be very functional and aesthetically pleasing. The work triangle was re-oriented to make the space more efficient for everyday tasks.
Accessories always serve to complete a space. Our designers like to incorporate some of a client’s personal and meaningful items: those that have stories, or simply things that the client really loves. This may include vintage pieces tastefully mixed with newer items to create a pleasing and harmonious blend that honor’s family traditions, while giving the overall space a more modern feel.
Mid-century modern is just one of the many styles of kitchens that the Studio M Kitchen & Bath team has created for their clients.
