Library With Midcentury-Modern Influences

An Eames chair and a low-slung chaise cozy up to the built-in bookcase in this transitional library. Layered rugs and a chevron pouf soften the floor for extra reading room, while a ladder helps you grab those hard-to-reach books.

Woodsy Wallpaper

Designer Jenny Norris made a statement in the library with woodsy black-and-white wallpaper. A midcentury-modern chaise is layered with Southwestern pillows and a flokati throw for an invitingly soft spot.

Color-Blocked Bookshelf

Designer Jenny Norris created visual interest on the bookshelf by grouping similarly colored books together. Old-school cameras and binoculars add a vintage boyishness to the mix.

Trendsetting: Moroccan Rug & Fiddle Leaf Fig

A colorful Moroccan rug anchors the living room, while a charcoal sectional offers plenty of seating. A fiddle leaf fig tree adds height to the room along with the arched modern floor lamp.

Table-Toppers

A coffee table isn't complete without reading material and beautiful coasters — extra style points if they match your rug.

A Mix of Modern & Midcentury

A blend of modern and midcentury pieces add vintage character to the living room.

Brick Floor in Transitional Foyer

The brick floor lends a hearty quality to the home's foyer. A peacock-blue wall is the backdrop for a low-slung bench and a collection of framed prints.

Transitional Hallway With Brick Floor

A hammered globe pendant is suspended from the ceiling in the brick-floored hallway.

Dining Room With Midcentury Details

Wood paneling adds a vintage touch to the midcentury-modern-inspired dining room along with the upholstered dining chairs and sunburst chandelier. The malachite art adds a refreshing pop of color.

Breakfast Bar for Two

In the kitchen, an elevated countertop and two saddle stools form a small breakfast bar.

Breakfast Nook With Tulip Table & Copper Pendants

This breakfast nook is complete with a modern tulip table and matching chairs. A set of copper pendants works the space.

Midcentury-Modern-Inspired Bedroom With Rugged Simplicity

The pared-down bedroom emphasizes artwork and high-quality midcentury-modern furnishings. An upholstered platform bed resides below art prints and a pair of adjustable sconces.

Southwestern Vibes

Off-white walls make it easy to transform the mood of the space with accessories and decor. Here, a two-toned dresser, simple floor lamp and woven rug play into the simple Southwestern aesthetic of this bedroom.

Soft & Sleek Neutrals

Layered texture is the key to this living room. A plush sofa, fringed area rug and marble table are mixed for gentle contrast. Even the grass-cloth wallpaper has a discernible texture to it.

Boxy Midcentury-Modern Armchairs

A pair of teal armchairs ups the retro style in this living room. The chairs' tapered wooden legs are a telltale sign of midcentury-modern design.

Metallic Sunburst Mirror

A striking sunburst mirror adds visual interest behind the bar, adding a little midcentury-modern panache to cocktail hour.

Midcentury-Modern Console

The sleek midcentury-modern console brings out the rugged texture of the gray area rug.
