Whether it’s the classic hairpin legs on the sideboard you love or the bold colours and patterns of the art work born from that era, you’ve probably got your eyes fixed on stunning pieces of mid century modern furniture and decor. A neutral, light tone can brighten up the entire room and can be the perfect backdrop to your mid century colour scheme. Rock Salt (Dulux) has a very slight tone of grey and works beautifully when paired with mustard accents, dark oak wooden floor, or a bold antiqued rug.
To embrace mid century modern in your living room, you could opt for a brown leather sofa to pair with an antiqued rug and a darker tone of grey, Storm Clearing, to apply across all walls. Cobalt Night makes for the perfect companion when used as the backdrop to emphasise the subtle gold accents, white features, or wooden elements inside your home. Whereas Forest Shade is an all-time favourite that can bring a room to life with its deep earthy tone.
Whether you prefer to be surrounded by plants or adding subtle or dominant colours to your walls, there’s an option for everyone, and for every room. Alternatively, if you’re looking for an earthy appeal, marry it with warm neutrals, mustard, browns, reds, or rusty orange. Cherished Gold is a colour often used to contrast with neutral tones, whether that be with a mustard armchair, a geometric patterned throw, or with yellow block tiles in the kitchen. As with Cherished Gold, a shade of red or pink is a favourite for the mid century modern colour palette.
