Welcome back to the aesthetic series, where we give you the tips to achieve a specific aesthetic in a specific room each week. This week we are exploring a favorite of mine, Mid Century Modern and tackling the look in the dining room. Mid Century Modern is all about clean lines, natural hues, teak wood details, minimalism, and a few focal point pieces. I have all the tips you need to get this look below.

Clean crisp lines are very important in achieving the Mid Century Mod aesthetic. From top to bottom in your space your lines should be clean. However, your table and chairs are a great place to start. These chairs and this table pictured above are impeccably clean lined!
To achieve that true 60s Mid Century Modern aesthetic you’ll want to keep your color palette natural. For example, don’t shy away from earthy greens and mustard yellows. And as usual, white walls will be your friend!

Make your light fixture a statement and focal point of your dining room. Any light of the sputnik chandelier variety is a good choice.
This rug screams Mid century Modern and is a great pick to drive the aesthetic home. A “traditional” 60s patterned rug is not a must but if your want to go all out on this aesthetic this is the route you want. However, I personally love pairing a rug like the one in the second photo at the top of this post with Mid Century dining furnishings.

If you have the extra space in your dining space, a Min Century credenza is a great addition. And it’s useful too! Use it for storage and a bar, because why not?

Vintage art from the 60s (or at least art reminiscent of the era) is the perfect addition and will complete a Mid Century Modern dining space that dreams are made of.
