      Inspired by the designs that originated and became synonymous with the 1940s and ’60s, mid-century modern furniture is a fun blend of elegant and organic shapes. They often have curves, straight lines, pointed details, and rounded corners. Adds Amber, “Geometric shapes, warm wood tones, and antique-style furniture work perfectly with this style.”

      • Scandi Home Style


      Utility and comfort have their place in Scandinavian design. Fairly simple (at least in the color palette and materials used), the homes decorated in a Scandinavian-inspired way feature soft colors, tactile textures, and natural materials to create an environment that feels functional yet relaxing. Think sheepskin cushions, sturdy wood dining tables, and back wall colors.
