i used to try and have an apartment that was nothing but streamline, very committed mid-century modern. but i just couldn’t hack the discipline involved to have everything ‘by the book’ mid-century. i like too many eras of furniture design to be tied down to just one, and while i utterly admire anyone who can keep a home with a clean, strictly modern manner, it’s just a tad too austere for me — the “collector of odds and ends”. that’s why i was drawn to these rooms — they’ve got that mid-century modern vibe, but with a playful, eclectic spin, achieved by adding pops of great color; plants, whimsical artwork, and unique textiles. just a bit of fun with mid-century modern.

  1. It took me a while (about 45 years…) to realise exactly where I got my mid-century yearnings from and how, like you, strictness about form and colour irks. Marjorie’s apartment from Vertigo and Jeff’s apartment from Rear Window. Bingo.
