real living & Homes Plus - Mid-Century Makeover
Amart Furniture is excited to partner with stylist Jackie Brown to bring you the latest looks for your home with the Smart Styling series. For the April edition, Jackie has put together a sleek dining space with a mid-century twist. You can recreate this gorgeous look at home with all of the products listed below!
For this space, Jackie has taken a lighter spin on the mid-century design trend by choosing pieces that mix retro styles with contemporary details, as seen in the Sven 5 piece dining suite. Although this setting features a distinctly curvy mid-century design, a bleached look on the legs and a white top keep it fresh and modern. The Andi sideboard is then the perfect complement, mirroring the suite’s tones to create a fluid aesthetic.
Once you’ve got these two main pieces, the next step is to decorate and accessorise the room. Jackie recommends that you stick to a neutral colour palette so everything works together to create a calm and balanced space. Make sure to utilise the sideboard for displaying some of your most stylish décor items – terrariums, vases and books are just some of Jackie’s favourites. This furniture piece also works well as a bar when you’re entertaining guests!
Thanks to the simplicity of the furniture, you have creative freedom when it comes to finishing touches. Think outside the box with 3D wall art, as seen above, and keep an eye out for modern interpretations of 60s lighting design; the pendant light Jackie has used acts as a great anchor for the setting.
Jackie's top tips for giving your dining room a mid-century makeover on a budget:
- Try hanging decorative objects on the walls instead of traditional framed pictures and paintings.
- Create a vignette with some beautiful rocks or other natural pieces you find in the garden.
- To decorate a corner, place a pot plant on a stool and use a planter pouch.
- Your dinnerware and glassware can act as decorative items if you arrange them neatly.
