Beyond Mid-Century by Heather Garrett Design

Photo by Emily Johnston Anderson

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"My clients' neighborhood boasts of homes built in the '30s and through the midcentury, but I often wonder about the interior aesthetic and if it complements the architectural bones of the house," says Garrett. Here, the designer rooted the media room in midcentury modern design by filling the space with iconic pieces.Wall paint: Grizzle Gray, Sherwin-Williams
A modernist interior doesn't include molding between walls and ceilings. Each plane, wall and ceiling is treated as a thin screen that seems to slide past rather than be connected to one another.
This entire room setting evokes a spacey sensibility, from the dramatic black and white color scheme (which includes numerous shades of gray), to the Sputnik ceiling light, sculptural felted gray “stone” seat cushions and wacky three-armed floor lamp. Beam me up, Scotty!More: So Your Style Is: Midcentury Modern
