Whether your style is all-out retro or transitional with touches of the past, mid-century home decor is for you! According to Architectural Digest, the movement blossomed from early 20th century Modernism; characteristics of mid-century decor include simplicity of design, organic shapes, and emphasis on function.
You might be wondering how to incorporate this style into your home. Here are a few suggestions:
- Display an abstract metal wall sculpture with rounded, mod shapes.
- Swap out traditional magazine racks or accent tables for sleeker styles.
- Place a geometric area rug on the floor as a statement piece.
- Update an entertainment center with chic furniture in light or warm finishes.

Is your home decor looking lackluster—or simply missing that je ne sais quoi? Perhaps what it needs is a marriage of modern and vintage panache. The Art Deco style is the cat’s meow! Popular in the 1920s and ‘30s, this aesthetic remains one of the most appealing styles in architecture and home decor. Bold color duos like black and gold and clean geometric lines reflect the Art Deco sensibility. Stark, repeating motifs of triangles and rays also hark back to the period.
If you yearn for a more romantic look, select home decor with intricate details, swirling curves, and ornamental beauty. These shapely pieces will lend an Art Nouveau quality to your decor.

A proud peacock waits from this canvas for your arrival. A resplendent entryway is as simple as a captivating canvas, mirrored table, mosaic glass accessories, and Old World-style wall accents.

Let a flower garden bloom on your wall! A floral wall art collage is perfect for large wall spaces like the area above the sofa, and the look is perfectly customizable. “Collect” a bouquet of metal wall art blossoms in your favorite hues, and display them however you like on a wall.
In both looks below, we chose a 26” dia. mirrored flower as the focal point, then arranged other metal flowers around it. For a little extra glamour, we selected a couple flowers with gem accents.
The first look is perfect for spring; a pretty array of pinks, purples, and blues are softly complemented by ivory and aqua. An openwork console table, stained glass lamp, petal pillow, and floral canvas complete the lovely arrangement.

The second look is wonderfully transitional, reflecting both Old World and modern styles. Metallic tones blend beautifully with cream capiz shell. We placed a storage cabinet and geometric candleholders beneath the wall art display, but the decorating possibilities are endless.
