In the library of a Boston residence renovated by architect Dell Mitchell and decorated by Thad Hayes. André Dubreuil lanterns top the mantel; the ceiling fixtures are 1960s Seguso. and the Edward Wormley sofas are covered in a Larsen fabric.The living room of the 1960s Beverly Hills home of designer Waldo Fernandez is furnished with a pair of vintage Jacques Adnet club chairs and a rosewood chiffonier by Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann.
In the 1940s and '50s. midcentury-modern design. with its clean lines. warm woods. and bold upholstery hues (often in woolly. menswear-inspired textures). changed the way homes looked. Suddenly. less was more. and decorating a home was about finding a design where form served function—a philosophy that continues to inspire designers to this day.
If a mid century living room what you are after. green can play a key factor.The lime green accent wall in this design is beautifully offset with dark leather accent chairs. a large ottoman. and brown beamed ceilings. One of the pieces we absolutely love in this room is the mid century modern coffee table called the Noguchi table. designed by sculptor Isamu Noguchi.
Whether its a green accent wall or a few seafoam green throw pillows. adding a pop of green has the power to completely transform any living room. If you want a more dramatic feel. be sure to indulge in colors like dark moss and emerald green. Looking for a little tranquility? Paint your walls in softer hue like mint. And for those looking to make a big impact. there is always the tried and true lime green.
