Bring timeless, earthy mid-century style to your home

Taking inspiration from a Titirangi modern renovation, we’re dreaming of the warm wood tones and golden hues of mid century decor

Mid century decor has always been timeless, but perhaps in the face of revolving trends and fast fads, there’s even more of a pull back towards the ‘50s style. Back then, interiors saw revolutionary leaps forward with designs that feel fresh even today, such as the Eames lounge chair or Noguchi coffee table.

For those mid-century-curious, this modern style is best complemented by natural materials, especially wood, and paired with earthy tones such as brown, amber, and sage. It’s bringing the outside in and allowing the living room to feel like a natural extension of the world around us. There are clean lines with a simple, refined design that takes pieces back to basics, with a bold accent colour or two. If you’re sick of the ongoing tug-of-war between textural beige and colourful maximalism, why not make a nice cup of tea and cosy up with mid-century style? You might just be surprised at what you find.

We’ve taken inspiration from this recently renovated Titirangi home to find the best mid century decor available now.
