Mid-Century Modern for the 21st Century

For a more feminine version of the look, try amping up the warm metallics with shades of gold and copper, then mixing in pastels and jewel tones. The room above features both a classic white sofa and a dreamy pink houndstooth one for ample seating and style.

Masters of Sex: Get a Mid-Century Retro Look at Home

We’re about halfway through Season 3 of Masters of Sex, and the steamy show has been heating up our summer. Of course, as design aficionados, we can’t help checking out the fabulous mid-century sets, conceived by production designer Michael Wylie. We’ll help you get the look below!

This season takes place in the 1960s, and Lizzy Caplan’s costumes for Virginia Johnson have been mod perfection. We wonder: is it a coincidence that her crosshatch suit perfectly complements this champagne and royal blue hallway?

Some of our favorite sets are in the Masters’ mid-century home, complete with shades of chartreuse, mustard and burnt sienna. “Since it’s a television show and not a documentary, we added lots of 1950s colors and used color combinations that were not only well-used at the time, but also make for great contrasts on your TV screen, like blue with orange,” Wylie told HGTV. “The colors were bold and the sense of humor was high. It is part of the reason the 1950s are so revered.”

How to Decorate a Period Home

Four Creative Ways to Decorate Period Homes

While matching decor to a home’s era is always a winning strategy, we love the juxtaposition of a style that contrasts a bit and brings the space into the 21st century. Read on and find out how to get the look!

Keep Things Casual

The Hamptons home above is a Greek Revival that dates back to the 1840s, when furniture was heavy and fabrics were formal. That didn’t stop the current owners from incorporating casual wicker, pretty pinks, and lightweight pastel florals, calling the combination “granny chic goes nautical.”

Take a Tour of Four Stunning Hudson Valley Homes

Extending north from Manhattan and continuing as far as Albany, the scenic Hudson Valley area has been called “America’s Rhineland.” It’s home to countless historic sites, charming small towns, and a myriad of vineyards and restaurants. When the city gets too much, it’s where many of Manhattan’s most stylish residents escape to relax and recharge, surrounded by nature.

We’ve rounded up a few beautiful homes located in the region, ranging from rural farmhouses to sprawling estates. Take a tour and get the look below!

A Historic Hybrid

Obercreek Farm in Dutchess County has been passed down through private investor Alex Reese’s family for six generations, and its architecture has evolved in the process. It was built in the mid-19th century in the Federal Style, then got an Italianate makeover, and finally received a Colonial Revival remodel in the 1920s. The result is a stately, impressive home that includes features like a two-story portico and a Gothic chapel.

Reese happened to marry architect Alison Spear just when he was looking to rejuvenate the home, and together, they gave the home new life, mixing the original furnishings with clean-lined seating and luxurious upholstery.

According to interviews, Ralph Lauren has always designed for himself. That practice is especially apparent in his new collection, The Ranch. Inspired by a Southwestern textile design, the bold geometric fabrics would fit in perfectly in the spacious-yet-cozy screening room of his Colorado estate.
