Loving Me Some Mid-Century Modern

Lately I’ve been on the hunt for some clean mid-century modern furniture for a client’s home and came across some fantastic inspiration while at it! Lauren Conrad’s bright, airy Pacific Palisades home caught my attention with it’s clean lines & Cali casual vibe. All that natural light pouring into the living room, and the neutral palette plays it up beautifully! I thought I'd break down and share what I love about this space & how you can get a similar look.

A few aspects I'm loving -
- the warmth and texture - a mix of woods, leather, brass, wovens & plants, against the all-white backdrop looks amazing and really warms up the room
- the delineated windows against the white walls - gorgeous
- a mix of vintage & mid-century modern elements. Like the antique brass coffee table ( a personal favorite she’s carried through different homes) with those incredible (teakwood?) lounge chairs - love their structure
- the mid-century modern rocker (adorable) seems to be having a moment - I’ve seen it show up in many a magazine pages this year!
- that big, beautiful oversized mirror above the fireplace
