Earthy tones for the colour scheme
Earthy colour dominates the colour palette for the mid-century home interior since the majority of the furniture were crafted out of wood. But don’t be afraid to make a statement too by using bold colours as accents. Play around with dark hues of primary colours – red, yellow, blue or jewel tones!
Go green with wooden furniture
Pieces of furniture were crafted out of wood originally until the invention of plastics and techniques which were developed later, making plastic furniture a more affordable and popular option. In the early mid-century, wooden furniture were more commonly seen in homes. Other than fitting the theme of the house, choosing products crafted from wood is also a much more sustainable approach!

Add mid-century elements with retro prints
Whether it’s the rugs, curtains or your cushion covers, they are a safe way to add inject a mid-century element with its retro prints. Or go bold by using a wallpaper with the classic geometric prints seen commonly in homes back in those days for your feature wall to create a focal point in your home.
Standing on tapered legs
Going gradually from thick to thin, tapered legs are round and set at either a straight or a slanted angle. Nothing more screams mid-century than furniture with tapered legs! Whether it’s a TV console, display shelf, study desk in singapore, sofa or bedframe, you can look for one with tapered legs regardless how modern or bold the rest of the furniture looks to mix modern design with mid-century.
Simple yet bold
Mid-century furniture usually features shapes which are sleek and streamlined, featuring a clean and underrated look. A key feature of mid-century design is the emphasis of practicality and functionality. To add a modern touch to the piece, look accessories with retro prints or bold colors!
At the end of the day, just remember to have fun while furnishing your space!
