Dream House 5: Midcentury Pastels

When I try to put a label on the overall vibe we’re going for in our new house, the best I can usually come up with is something like “cozy midcentury” or maybe “comfy mod.” It’s what I like to think of as a modern version of midcentury modern style  — modern mod??? To me, it means furniture with clean lines that are comfortable enough to actually want to sit in and stay a while, warm textiles like shaggy rugs and fuzzy pillows to soften those clean lines, and then color, lots of color, with a minimal white background.

Whatever you want to call this style, this adorable vacation home in Montauk, found on Design*Sponge, is about as close as you get to what’s in my head, and I’m pretty sure I pinned every single image. I’m madly in love with the mix of colors in the living room/dining room, where there’s a soft pink chair, a plum couch, and aqua dining room chairs along with a bright yellow door. It would almost be crazy if it weren’t for all the white and the minimal accessories. While I don’t love every single piece, the overall effect is spot on.

This combo of colors is amazing.

The aqua dining room chairs are my FAVORITE. Especially next to that pink armchair. (Would Andy agree to a pink armchair? Wait, we don’t even have room for an armchair!)
