How We Decorated Our Study In Mid-Century Modern

Mid-century modern is my new favorite everything.  Period.  I had no idea I had such a thing for 1950’s and 1960’s style until we started renovating my house one room at a time, and over and over again mid-century modern pieces kept popping up on my inspiration boards.  Our family room remodel ended up having bits and pieces of mid-century modern throughout, and as we’ve decorated the rest of the house it has become obvious I have a major thing for the style of that (wicked stylish) time period.

Speaking of mid-century modern, our study redesign is finally finished, and I can’t wait to show you. But first I want to share the pieces we used to put it together.  The whole idea for this room was to swap it out from brown-on-brown-on-brown, on-boring to bright and gorgeous and modern.

It was really important to us to keep the function of the room, which is a major hangout for the kids to work on homework at the computer or to play Legos, or lounge on the sofa.  So when I picked out all the furniture for the room I thought function first, then form, but I managed to keep it stylish. Phew.   I’m so excited with the way it all came together.  It’s such a simple, clean, pretty room with lots of good light and key pieces of artwork, and is a perfect reflection of our style as a family.

Most of the room is put together with pieces gifted from Joss & Main. (thank you!)

Here’s what I ended up with:

  1. Sectional sofa
  2. Urchin decor
  3. Area rug
  4. End table
  5. Arm chair
  6. Geometric vase
  7. Desk chair

It makes me feel squeal-y excited to show you everything put together, especially the before-and-after photos, so stay tuned for the whole shebang of our renovation into a mid-century modern study.
