mid-century goes modern.

photography by prue ruscoe for home life.

there’s something so fresh looking about a bit of mid-century furnishings against a background of neutral white walls — vintage danish modern at its best. add a pop of lush green plant life to spaces full of natural wood furniture and rooms seem to get even more vibrant and alive. i love this look and wouldn’t mind a modern retreat somewhere in the california redwoods decorated around this theme. looks mighty peaceful and relaxing.

    Hi Victoria, what a lovely round-up!

    Thanks for the inclusion of Rebecca & Bruce Meissner’s home. In case anyone is wondering, that planter was designed and made by Cape Town, South Africa based design collective, ThingKing and comes in various sizes and configurations.
