Just over a year ago I moved into a new place in the Melrose District of Los Angeles. A charming tree lined residential street with modest homes built mainly in the 1930’s and 1940’s. A range of Streamline Moderne, Spanish, Storybook, and a few 50’s era for the mix. I decided to go in the direction of an eclectic mid-century modern mix for the interior design of my own home since it tied in more with the aesthetics of a 1939 built structure.
I was looking to furnish quickly and on a budget. With a designer’s eye and resources, I knew I could shop inexpensive finds and pull it together. In the entry / living area, which also doubles as my workspace, I purchased the large scale abstract from Overstock.com and the console from Living Spaces. The bench is from Target.
The accessories, artwork, and table lamp are all from Target. The two drawer desk is from Overstock.com and the lucite chair on casters (a favorite of mine!) was one of those one off rare finds on a whim from TJ Maxx!
In the living area, additional artwork from Target (along with the bench), a sectional sofa from Living Spaces, and as they say “something borrowed” - well, thank you to my good friend Morgan for the coffee table loan. Her (replica) Noguchi is the perfect fit for the space!
For the dining area, I’d long coveted a Saarinen dining table. However, I had to do some internet scouring to find a knock off that was both the right scale (smaller and round vs oval) and a high gloss black. I can’t recall the source of where I purchased this from but it was a great find and now one of my other favorite finds. The mid-century modern chairs paired with it came as a set of four from Overstock.com.
Lastly, the bedroom. Art, bedding, and bedside table are all from Target. The high table lamp is from Overstock.com, once again. A platform bed with a gray tufted headboard and mattress shipped from Wayfair.com in just two days. Had to get a bed fast!
