The open plan living room in this flat is light and bright, and the beautiful Georgian sash windows are the main feature. The white oiled oak floor & Carl Hansen Wegner chairs contrast with the original Georgian fire surround, cornice and skirting boards. The contemporary tan leather sofa and sideboard sit happily next to the mid-century armchair & cast iron radiator. Plaster wall lights, a large table lamp and a multi bulb pendant provide layers of light when required.

Conversion of a five-bedroom, five-bathroom B&B into a single-family home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. The objectives of the renovation were to complete extensive repairs to the roof structure to prevent it from slowly collapsing on the house below and to move the living areas upstairs to immerse the entertaining spaces in nature. Natural light and treetop views now suffuse this mid-century modern inspired Tewkesbury home. A new kitchen picture window to the front elevation and sets of large windows to the back and side elevations flood the “upside-down” home with constantly changing natural light and capture a treetop outlook in the front and garden views at the rear. The sofa, armchairs, nest of tables, sideboard, dining table and chairs are all Ercol original furniture pieces. In true mid-century modern fashion, the space is enclosed by slatted screens and lightly zoned through the arrangement of furniture and rugs, above which the eye can pass through unhindered. The design of the kitchen was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s abstract geometric compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red. Mondrian’s paintings are characterised by flat black horizontal and vertical lines that create a grid filled with coloured forms. In the vein of Mondrian’s art, anthracite grey handle channels are used to build a grid that frames all the drawer and door fascia. The vast expanses of grey are subsequently broken by the introduction of rectangles of bright colours in spice tones that create a new equilibrium.

Midcentury modern design was born out of the 1950s and 60s, in the middle of the 20th Century, as the name suggests. Often referred to as simply midcentury as well as midcentury modern, it can be recognised by the iconic designs that were born in the period, such as the G Plan wooden furniture of E Gomme and chairs by Arne Jacobsen and Charles and Ray Eames.

Midcentury design incorporates clean lines, rich colours and materials, and an effortlessly retro feel. Teak wood, tapered furniture legs, rectangular sideboards, shapely upholstery and sunburst designs are all elements that make up midcentury modern decor and design. If you want to add a bit of midcentury sophistication to your home, try a midcentury sofa with a wooden frame, spindly legs and simple soft upholstery. Make sure to add a low and sleek midcentury coffee table in walnut or teak, and you’ll be set. For full-blown retro midcentury fun, look for the famous egg chair, Palm Springs prints, bold colours and monochrome prints, pop-art posters and shag carpets. Midcentury design can either be turned up high or added subtly to a modern home, it’s up to you how far you want to take it.
