Dreams of an affordable beautiful home office or trendy mid-century modern décor shouldn’t conjure up nightmares of big box stores with cheap mass-produced pieces lacking qualityand durability. By having an understanding of your price range, an interior designer can give you the help you need in investing your resources where they’ll matter, like in a beautiful rug or a meaningful piece of art, and save you frustration and dollars by finding budget-friendly home décor that support an overall theme to achieve your ideal home design, like accents with mixed metals or furniture with architectural details. This workspace, located in a Cincinnati model home, highlights some of the best aspects of the mid-century modern style without forsaking luxury or the better half of a homeowner’s wallet.
The contemporary desk and chair take center-stage. The mixed metals of the chair, desk, and bookcase, as well as the brass and nickel accents from the chandelier, are a great counterpoint to the mixed woods of the furniture and white wainscoting. The leather area rug provides a touch of class to the room décor as well as some pattern and a feeling of movement. Geometric shapes in dark, cool neutrals can lean overly urban and sterile, but the breath within the room created by the window and wide french doors keep the room light and airy. The centered photograph art on plexiglass helps anchor the focal wall, and the delicate exposed metal chandelier from Kirsch Lighting adds visual interest without obstructing the piece. This mid-century modern room design is a trendy, affordable fit for the professional that will call this house their home.
