MID-CENTURY MADNESS – MY VINTAGE LIVING ROOM

 This is another in progress home decor project. I’m one of those ‘more is more’ types, so to me the walls are naked. I want waaaay more wall art; like Buca di Bepo more. But so far I’m happy with how it’s turning out.

 Most of the pieces are from the 50s and early 60s, but some are later and some earlier. While the main colors are earth tones, neutrals, green, and red, some other colors are thrown in for good measure. I like to mix and match. Anything too perfect doesn’t feel like a home to me.  

  I scored this mid-century couch in Tacoma, WA ages ago for $200.00. Supposedly it’s a Danish designer piece and worth way more, but I’ve never looked into it. It was reupholstered at one point but still looks amazing, imo.

 The drapes are original vintage bark cloth, with a diamond/harlequin print. Very very 50s.
