Hide CaptionShow CaptionMidcentury modern elements make this a stylish space.
Although the 1950s modern style uses more muted colors, Kahi chooses a steely blue wall color. The more saturated color works better with the bright red futon fabric. The classic midcentury modern elements are all here: full-length pleated curtains, low furniture, clean lines and simple design. These happy homeowners now have a stylish space where they can be together or do their own thing.
