Make it Mid-Century

Make it Mid-Century_2000

Chances are, you’ve come across this very popular style recently on Flickr and elsewhere on the grid due to a few shopping events that we’ll talk about after the jump.

There are several reasons why I think this style of modern meets retro is more than welcomed in today’s ever changing palette. It is timeless, very easy to spot and makes its own bold statement, unapologetic, unabashed and iconic. You’ll either find this style very boring, or very chic in its simplicity and elegance.

Mid-Century is all about clean lines, straight/boxy edges and supposedly clutter free. But this is CozeySL, and we’re sort of into clutter. The good kind at least.

The main pieces including the chairs, larger shelf, television, speakers, clock, and midsized deco are a part of USB’s Retro living set for The Home and Garden Expo, where you can see this set in its entirety. They are no modify accept for the curtains and shelf where you can switch up the accent colours. Do be sure to take the direct TP at the end of the post.

Also, Lost and Found has just opened and there are SO MANY goodies, and only ONE week to go and get them. Ideza’s “Let’s Get Retro” Gacha is one of those machines where you’ll want to mayybbeee use that week up. These pieces are so incredibly made and perfect for mixing it up should you dare.

And that’s another reason why going Mid-Century could give your decorating an interesting twist. Because many pieces tend to be simpler, with the clean lines etc, they’re much easier to mix and match with say, like Art Deco or Contemporary. (I did my homework!)

I hope you all have had a chance to tour The Home and Garden Expo this year, it is one of their best ones yet. Every day at 4pmSLT during the Expo there is the traditional Lantern release

“to celebrate and commemorate those close to us and maybe send thoughts to those who no longer can be with us.”

On March 3rd at 2pmSLT, Prim Perfect Talks will be having a special event with Project Sansar being the topic at hand, what will it mean to designers, etc. I am making my plans to be there, and hopefully you will too! You can find all of the Expo’s events on their official calendar here.

  1. I love this mid-century style and I don’t know why except maybe it harks back to more peaceful days when the economy was as up beat as the furniture!

    • it reminds me of a world where you felt safe and somehow knew everything would be alright. Very nostalgic and I guess, Moz, there’s a bit of that Brady Bunch nuance running through as well, and if I’m honest with myself, I actually miss feeling that way.

  2. In RL I live in an area that is known for mid century modern architecture, and I would say I am not a fan. What they call “mid century modern” I call 50s and nothing special. But somehow CozeySL turns mid century modern snobby in colorful retro fun! While the furniture isn’t really my style, I will never stop loving those crazy clocks, and the wall art is something I could easily look at in my humans’ rooms. Being faery, I don’t really have “rooms” so much. My treehouse has no walls – the leaves, flowers, sky are art and decoration – but I’m getting the urge to redecorate my sky dome with some new flowers and trees and your photos and posts are whispering in my ear, “maybe just a little cottage, to decorate all cozey.”

    • Well its definitely not for everyone that’s for sure lol! I do love the idea of maybe doing something fae related as there is that concept of no rooms and just glorying in all the beautiful things in nature even virtually. Hanaya is a great place to start as she has a special affinity to faeries💗

  3. Just to clarify, mid century modern isn’t snobby in itself… just where I live there is a bit of an architecture lovers community and the mcm lovers have at times left some very snobby comments in debates over whether some building or other needs to be renovated or torn down and rebuilt.

    • Believe it or not its much the same in some SL circles as well sad to say. Sometimes I think its safer to stay behind the comment box and lurk through but then I wouldn’t be able to get to know wonderful people such as yourself 🙂
