Outdoor living, especially on the front porch was a way of life for many homeowners during midcentury years and bringing retro styled garden furniture to your front porch is one way to re-live those years. Metal or heavy gauge steel garden furniture in pastel hues or vibrant color palettes are perfect for your outdoor home. Add a modern appeal with all-weather seat cushions in fun patterns like florals, stripes, or polka dots to bring back the days of drinking ice cold soft drinks from a glass bottle with a straw on the front porch and watching the world go by!
Many homeowners choose furniture from the inside out, while others prefer to let the architecture of their home help decide their furniture options. This is perfect for homes that love to mimic streamlined retro furniture to counterbalance expansive windows and views. Many architects over recent eras were also furniture designers. Dig into history to find out if your favorite architectural style would complement your furniture too!
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
