Call it the Mad Men effect. Or maybe its just a matter of what’s old is new again. Regardless, there’s no doubt about it. The Mid-Century Modern look is back. And I, for one, am happy to see it. Now like every retro style there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. There’s a fine line between an homage to the Mid-Century Modern style and just plain dated. Applying this look to your bathroom can be particularly tricky. Here are some spaces that hit it just right!
The clean lines. A clear Mid-Century Modern element applied beautiful in a functional and stylish bathroom.

Play with angles. The fifties was all about playing within convention. While keeping everything clean and sharp you can still use angles to add some interest to your space.

If you’re looking to add a frame to your space that fits perfectly with the Mid-Century Modern style I’d recommend the Weston or Edgecomb collections. Both styles complement the look beautifully.
