It feels like absolutely ages since I featured a home interiors post but today I’m shedding some light on “MIDCENTURY MODERN: 15 INTERIOR DESIGN IDEAS” written by Ivy Ngeow. You do not want to miss out on this book, because it is packed full of hints and tips to help you make the most of your space.

What is Midcentury Modern?
Midcentury Modern is deemed to be he golden age of architecture and design. It began its rise after Art Deco and Art Moderne and lasted right through until the 1970s. Today we think of it as elegent yet simple and can be compared in design to the likes of The Queens Gambit, which so many of us have watched.
What will I find in this book?
This book has so much packed inside to really help you. Its suitable for everyone whether you’re an amateur, designer, enthusiast or modernista. Firstly, there is a brief history to explain so much more about the Midcentury Modern concept than I ever could do in this post. Secondly, there are 15 easy to read illustrated ideas. Each of these are picked from a Queen’s Gambit scene to provide a pithy overview. In addition to this, there are recommendations to guide you on the design elements. From colour palettes, furniture and lighting to wall and floor finishes, it will all help you to style a room whether new or old.
One of my favourite parts in this book is that there is a “Hot Tip” in every chapter. This amps up any design and helps to give it the professional touch you might otherwise be lacking. Its almost like it is giving an incite into those little industry secrets that make a room look more styled.
If this isn’t enough, you also have the bonus of 3 classic cocktail recipes to thirst-quench like the Queen.
