Get the mid-century modern look in your kitchen with these top tips from the designers

Is there an interior design style with as much staying power as the mid-century modern look? Emerging in the 1940s and stretching all the way until around the ’70s, the era is considered the greatest period for international design. To this day, furniture designers recreate and pay homage to the heyday of interiors with modern creations that mimic this enduringly cool style.

The key to using this style in the home is to carefully strike a balance and not go too overboard with the mid-century touches. Mixing the style with contemporary touches can feel elevated and cool. ‘Mid-century modern design is a delicate balance between modern sophistication and retro nostalgia,’ says Kelly Holland, Melbourne-based interior architect at K.Holland Architectural Interiors.
