By definition: Midcentury modern is a style of furniture design, product design, and architecture that began after World War II and continued into the 1960s. Often called “mod” and most definitely retro, this style is marked by simplicity, clean lines, organic forms, and materials such as wood, metal, and plastic.

I find it’s popping up more and more these days and I absolutely love it. It’s simple and clean just like the definition said.

I’m really into whites and greys currently. That colour combo seems to be here to stay and you can play up the room with coloured accents or a pop of colour wall. The other nice thing is you can always switch out the accents if you get bored. I’m digging these items from West Elm:

A few items that are a little more out there but I love. Especially the velvet couch!
