To look forward, sometimes you have to look back. Or so real estate website Zillow suggests in naming midcentury modern one of its top five design trends for 2015. The footnote? Go light on midcentury furnishings or the look will overtake your home. It’s all about minimalism.
“The midcentury movement focused on form and function,” says Richard Bustos, design consultant at Cantoni in Irvine. “Less clutter and more open spaces. Stay true to that philosophy and keep it simple. It’s about curating the ideal mix.”
