Hello everyone! I am new here and I would love to see how everyone has decorated their mid century homes! I have absolutely no design sense and I need inspiration! Thank you so much!

photos online can be tough. often don't do justice when shot by non-pros. I suggest hitting your local book store and look out the architecture section. there are quite a few books on Mid Century Modernism.

Also, on inspiration, try to stick to rooms that are similar shaped. it easier to visualize if a scheme will work, or not.

linked below is my blog. you'll find a link to my flickr site where you find several photos of my living area,

good luck and welcome to Lotta Livin

Hi

I just posted some photos of my home. I probably fall in the same category as you, I don't have much design sense. My home is mid century for real, build in the 1950s, my decorating skill are all over the map!

Not sure if the link will work as I am new here, but if not, its under Announcements, New Member, Bloomfield MI.

Don



PS the link was working in the preview!

for the most part, the internet sucks. you see, most of the inspirational images are copyright protected, printed in books. you might find some online, but with books come explanation which will help aid you design learning curve.

Another great source too is period shelter magazines like Sunset, Better Homes and Garden and trade magazines like Art & Architecture and House+Home. You can find these on ebay. early to mid-late '50s are the best for those magazines.

if you can post some images of your house/space, I can suggest some books and architects to look out for.

Thanks for all the info on places to look for inspiration!
I should explain my situation, since I'm new here and haven't really introduced myself. My husband is going through pilot training for the Navy, so we actually have no home of our own! We lived in Pensacola for 6 months, now Milton for 8 months, and in 14 days we'll be moving to Meridian, Mississippi!!!!! Well, the Navy housing there is 50's style Ranch houses!!!!! However, it's always been my dream to have my own 50's style house even before I knew what they were! My parents always said I have an old soul!
My starting point is actually a 50's style record player that looks like it's inside a side table. If that makes any sense. It's from my grandparents house. I'll have to get a picture of it.
And once we move to Mississppi, I'll post a photo of the house too!
And thanks again!

Here's a photo from my familyroom/den

Decorating is hard! I suggest getting ideas from atomic ranch mags.
