Mid-century Modern Colours

  • by Ian Thackeray

The mid-century modern look is having a moment right now. From dressers to retro-inspired light fixtures, there are many ways to bring the look into your own home. But while you're beautiful sideboard looks stunning in your living room, to truly embrace the style you need to think about the space as a whole, and that includes your paint colours.

Farrow and Balls Snow White

If bold hues aren't your thing, that's okay. A simple, classic white like Snow White is a great backdrop for your updated mid-century modern look. It's clean and crisp, a true neutral white, and it will pair beautifully with those mustard yellow throw pillows or that bold antiqued rug.

Little Greene Ambleside

Earthy greens were big in the '50 and '60s and we think Ambleside is a great way to recreate the look for modern times. This cool, pale ivy green is beautiful for bedrooms or living spaces and pairs well with bolder colours as well.

Little Green Mister David

The mid-century modern look is all about experimenting and not shying away from bolder choices. Yellow hues of many shades were big in the '50s and Little Greens Mister David is a perfect warm gold paint colour  This yellow shade pairs with other warm tones like tan and burnt orange and is bright and cheery enough for a kitchen or an entryway.

Little Green Atomic Red

A mid-century modern palette is a great excuse to experiment with a bold red shade like Atomic Red. Red is not for the faint of heart, but a bold fire engine red like this one is sure to make a splash in your home. Try it on kitchen cabinets or in a powder room.

Farrow & Ball's Nancy's Blushes

A soft pink like Farrow & Ball's Nancy's Blushes is the perfect shade to add a little bit of colour to a space, while still maintaining a neutral feel. When paired with a crisp white paint color, this pink acts even bolder and looks brighter. Not only does it work well in bedrooms and bathrooms, but with the right decor it can be a great choice for your living space as well.
