It’s true across the board: 2014 loves modern. Maybe “love” isn’t even a strong enough term for this year’s wildfire obsession with modern design. This skyrocketing trend particularly favors the mid-century moderns, with its warm reminder of 50’s era hospitality and Frank Lloyd Wright-esque indoor-outdoor soirées.  Here’s our round up of some of our favorite mid-century modern looks by local favorite interior designer Abbe Fenimore (see this post about Abbe’s awesome eye for design). You’ll adore the sleek sophisticated classics paired with a splash of glam.

Mid-Century Modern Glam

Glam-up your room by transforming a traditional fireplace into a modern focal point by adding white ceramic fire stones instead of  logs (you can also purchase colorful fireplace “gems” for even more glitter in your hearth).

Start with your favorite mid-century modern pieces then add some flare with gilded antlers, colorful geodes, or brightly papered books.


Art does wonders for any room. (Is that a Brenda Bogart piece on this lovely neon table?)
