Rustic Mid-Century Mash-up
At the flea market last week, I kept finding myself drawn to mid-century pieces, even though it’s a style that I consistently feel doesn’t really suit me or my house. I would ask myself if I could envision the item in my home and the answer was always no. This bothered me, however, because if I liked the pieces themselves, and was drawn to similar shapes and styles over and over, then there must be some common thread between my style and mid-century style, right? So I decided to try a little harder, open up the designer side of my brain and see if I could really make the mid-century vibe work with in my minimal rustic farmhouse. Once I got home (and out of the frenzy mindset of the flea market) I turned to Charish. I worked to pair a few mid-century pieces with items I already have in my living room, and to my shock, surprise, and delight, I think it works.
A few things helped the pairing of these pieces with my own, mainly, that I stuck to neutrals, I minimized the amount of orangey oak that usually is so prevalent in mid–century pieces, and I focused on clean lines. Now, I’ll have a guide when I’m out and about to know what meshes well with my style and that I can open up to mid-century after all. I know a lot of you are probably already into mid-century, so tell me… How do you mesh it with your style?
