If there was a prize awarded to the person who planned out their Christmas decorations first, I would be a clear contender. You see, back in the middle of September I put in an order for the Joybird Lewis Sectional in Mixology Blush for my open concept living room and as soon as that order was submitted I begin planning the style and colors. Clearly it needed to include pink and mid-century modern.
If you aren’t familiar with Joybird, they are a handcrafted, made to order furniture company that offers a wide range of options available for every room in your house. What I love most about them and sold me instantly was their designs. You cannot find these in any big box retailer. Their pieces are inspired by mid-century designers of the ‘50s and ‘60s such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Cara Greenburg, and Eero Saarinen. I’m slowly hoarding furniture and decor from this era so that when I find my mid-century modern dream house it will fit perfectly inside it.
So while sitting on my old couch in my underwear I was able to shop online for the Joybird Lewis Sectional. I pride myself in being able to make quick decisions and the style of the Lewis Sectional was an easy decision for me. It did take me a day or two to decide on the color. I actually gave hubs 3 choices and he picked the Mixology Blush. Not that I ever doubted our decision but Joybird offers an extensive 365-day home trial, allowing you to get the full experience how their furniture will feel for a lifetime. If I wasn’t so impatient, I could have also ordered a free swatch kit to see and feel fabric before hand. But I trust my instincts, most of the time.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming of Christmas decorations. Since my new Joybird Lewis Sectional in Mixology Blush was the main attraction, I knew I had to incorporate pink. But Pinterest totally failed me when I was searching for pink Christmas decor ideas. It was all monochromatic pinks or pastels and metallics. I needed pinks mixed with something that had some depth and texture while having mid-century flair and I totally found it with this color combination.
Mid-Century Modern Christmas Decor Staples
blush tinsel, I might not take this stuff down after Christmas. And if I can find more it’s coming home with me.
Bottle Brush Christmas Trees
Disco Balls- Ornaments or vase filler. I’ve been seeing these everywhere so easy to find. And best part they also don’t need to come down afterwards.
Starbursts and Geometric Shapes
Teardrop Ornaments (still on the hunt)
I would love to see how you incorporate mid-century modern Christmas decor in your home this year. Thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales are an obvious choice but sometimes that is hard to do with so much already on your to do list. So where do you shop for mid-century modern Christmas decor? Share in the comments, but only after you buy yours obviously because the go quick.
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me and thank you so much Joybird for partnering with me on this post to promote our love for mid-century modern.
