I’m a big fan of the mid century modern look for walls. I think it works really well in all kinds of homes and is an easy one to mix with other styles. I don’t think I’d want to do up my whole home, or even a whole room in a mid century design, but elements of it really appeal to my love of quirky prints. Take Orla Keily prints for example, pop a few patterned pieces into a contemporary or a more traditionally styled room, and they look just at home, as if you’d put them into a full mid century modern scheme.
Wallpaper is another way to add this mid century modern feel to your interior design, and there are some amazing designers and ranges out there to choose from.
Some of my favourites have to be Mini Moderns, who bring a fresh modern twist to retro designs.
For anyone who loves the retro design and wants to add a little playfulness into their interiors, wallpaper like this is definitely the way to go. If you still love adding a feature wall (I know there are those of you who have moved on from this look), these bold prints lend themselves beautifully to this layout. All Mini Moderns wallpapers are available at wallpaperdirect for £50 per roll.
Another stunning range, new to the market this month, that I reported on a few weeks ago, is the Layla Faye collection. Also channeling the mid century modern look to perfection, these prints have a fresher, more delicate vibe, marrying the pretty with the bold.

Whilst the Layla Faye designs are bold, there’s something quite subtle and calming about the prints too. I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed with all walls covered in these prints, and they would bring a freshness to the room, offering a great backdrop for either modern or mid century furniture. All Layla Faye wallpapers are available exclusively via wallpaperdirect and retail for £48.50 per roll. If you’ve not used wallpaperdirect before, I highly recommend giving them a go. With the ability to order samples of your favourite designs, you can’t go wrong.
