Beyond Mid-Century by Heather Garrett Design

Photo by Emily Johnston Anderson

While this home has a distinctively modern style with a nod toward its mid-century roots, the hardworking homeowners wanted it to have the feel of a high-end hotel experience.

What is the wall color and color of that sofa/chaise? - Love your work, Heather! I am a local and would love the opportunity to work with you sometime. I would like to know the wall color here and also--what color is that couch w/ chaise--is it charcoal, navy blue or a slate color--dark grey with a blue undertone? Very curious about that. Thank you.

Help with cowhide color - Hi! I am trying to find a cowhide rug that works well with my color scheme. I have light bamboo floors, white leather Barcelona an lc2 couches, a dark brown Noguchi coffee table, also some other rosewood (I think) medium dark wood furniture from the 60s. Would you recommend a white and dark brown or a white and light brown rug? Thanks!

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
