Things We Love: A Touch of Mid-Century Modern

 So many styles. So little time. It’s no wonder that mixing trends and time periods is so popular now. Who would want to choose just one?

 We are huge, huge fans of the Midcentury Modern touches that we have seen cropping up here, there and everywhere. And we just love how simple touches of the look can add personality to any room. This fixture, for example, adds instant pizazz to complement traditional furnishings.

A pop of yellow, and, most certainly, touches of gold, make a living room fun and family friendly. (Adore this glass coffee table!)

Mid-Century modern dining

 Bright colors in unexpected places are something that we are completely embracing right now! These dining chairs are the perfect example.

Even the playroom gets a hint of midcentury with a cool sconce. (And some fun, tiny chairs!)

Abstract art is one of our favorite features of a room with a Midcentury Modern look.

 And a funky and futuristic light fixture is practically a necessity.

 Wood elements help tie any look together.

 Unexpected touches like the contrasting fixture and ceiling medallion and that fabulous writing on the wall translate beautifully even into the nursery. That rug looks so cozy too!

Mid-Century modern kitchen

Modern bar stools, abstract art, sleek wood and that fabulous bar cart combine together to create a totally stylish look. That view doesn’t hurt either!

Architectural Digest

 

Show-stopping artifacts and the coolest lucite ping pong table we’ve ever seen pair with an incredible Serge Mouille chandelier for a one-of-a-kind entrance hall. (Seriously. We NEED that ping pong table!)

 This dining room is Midcentury Modern perfection. The fresh fabrics bring it up to date. Are you a fan of midcentury modern touches?

Thanks so much for visiting us today. We’re so happy to see you!

It’s been a whirlwind 25 days on the Slightly South of Simple book tour, where I have had the great pleasure of meeting amazing people in beautiful cities and towns across our Country.  I was in Atlanta just a few days ago, and I couldn’t help but think about that time when I saw this fabulous Buckhead home designed by one of our favorite designers, Suzanne Kasler. Take a peek. We think you’ll love it just as much as we do!

House Tour: B.D. Jeffries Owners’ Buckhead Home

B.D. Jeffries owner's home entrance hall

We all have them, those favorite shops that are our must-visits every time we go to a certain town. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's living room

For us, in Charlotte and Atlanta, one of those stores is B.D. Jeffries.

B.D. Jeffries owner's home

B.D. Jeffries owner's living room

So it is a particular treat to share the Buckhead home of B.D. Jeffries owners Brad and Debbie Weitz. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's abstract art

One look and it was evident that their house, like their store, was going to be a fast, fast favorite.

B.D. Jeffries owner's books

This is one of those homes that should be beside “chic” in the dictionary. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's foyer

There’s really no other word.

B.D. Jeffries owner's dining room

At once austere and well-collected,

books

The right mix of antique and new,

B.D. Jefferies owner's dining room

It is abundantly clear that the aesthetic that inspires the store we love so much has also inspired its owners’ home.

B.D. Jefferies owner's bedroom

Layered, soft and oh-so-cozy, this is the type of bedroom that lends itself to curling up with a pile of books and staying for awhile. 

B.D. Jefferies owner's porch

We love porches that blend the outside and inside seamlessly. Everything about this porch is perfection.

B.D. Jefferies owner's home

And the exterior is so utterly charming, a signal of the graciousness that awaits inside.

We couldn’t love this gorgeous home any more! What is your favorite part?
