This home’s interior concept has taken a few leaves from the book of mid-century modern design, with regards to its openness and hints of nature. Originally a style of décor in vogue during America’s 1950s to 60s, it has been adapted to homes around the world. Its most notable feature? Amplifying the home space visually, creating an ambience of comfort and relaxation.
The mid-century modern design is applauded for facilitating a seamless flow between the outdoors and indoors, and its strong ties with nature. As such, the windows take centre stage. Here, floor to ceiling windows creates an uninterrupted flow of space from the house to the greenery outside. Minimalist curtains are chosen to frame the view, directing full attention to the beautiful view. Aesthetics aside, the abundance of sunlight, gorgeous scenery and oxygen is a bonus for your wellness too. An integrated aquarium is another method to add that zest of liveliness in your home space.
Nature is also alluded to in the choice of fixtures. A Liberal sprinkling of traditional materials, such as wood, leather, glass and metal is present. Here, the leather sofa, wooden furniture and glass partition form an eclectic mix. The range of colours showcased- neutral hues and monochrome of fixtures, warm yellow lights, Rimu Wood brown of furniture, and green from the foliage - continues to play up the juxtaposition of visual elements. This is yet another hallmark of the mid-century modern style.
The impression of openness is furthered through the employment of reflection. The coordination of glossy marble flooring and panels, coupled with generous lighting overhead achieve this effect effortlessly.
