Mid Century Modern Eclectic, my signature style

 

 

Mid Century Modern Eclectic Styleboard

 

So are you wondering what Midcentury Modern Eclectic actually is? It’s what I call my signature style!

The dictionary defines a Signature Style as,  “a distinguishing style.” 

Midcentury Style is defined as, “a design period of roughly two and a half decades in the middle of the 20th century, from the mid-1940s to 1970. Its uncomplicated, fresh aesthetic arose from a desire to propel postwar America into the modern era and recast design through a bold new lens.”

Modern Style is defined as, “Modern design is a style of decor that focuses on minimalism, neutral colors, clean design lines and environmentally-friendly materials.”

… and Eclectic is my permission to mix it all up! 

I was so excited when my friend Carrie from, Making Lemonade invited me to be a part of her Signature Style Series!
