Dining in Style: Neutral Mid-Century Modern Dining Room Decor

Inspiring Mid-Century Modern Dining Room Design Ideas

Hello again! Dawn here, from AD Aesthetic, and I’m back with another mood board for your decoration inspiration.

This month, I had fun putting together a dining room mood board in my all time favorite decorating style: Mid Century Modern. Here’s what I came up with:

As mentioned mid century style is my absolute favorite, so this month’s moodboard was a fun one for me. Usually, I’m big on bright colors and patterns, but this time, I challenged myself to keep the design more neutral, giving the mid century decor a decidedly more modern vibe. Here are some tips on how to pull this look off if you enjoy the style too:

Clean Lines: Mid century style isn’t big on ornamental details, trending instead towards symmetry and sleek shapes. Look for furniture with simple, tapered legs, and pieces that utilize basic shapes, circles, to pull the room together.

Natural Elements: Using natural elements and textures, the woven rug and macrame decor in my moodboard above, can help to keep the room from feeling too cool or impersonal with all those sleek lines and simple shapes. It gives the decor some warmth and visual interest at the same time.

Warm Metals: Brass and gold finishes look great with mid century style, and add a little glamor to the space. Try it in a light fixture, curtain rod, or decorative objects around the room to add that sparkle.

Wood Tones: A staple of mid century decor is wood tones. Natural, or walnut stained wood looks great with this style, but in general it’s better to steer clear of anything too red or too dark, as it won’t ring true to the style you’re going for.

If you the moodboard I put together, here are a few more Mid Century dining room inspiration ideas that I’ve gathered up for you!
