A room like this midcentury dining room, where you could eat in casual connection with the outdoors, underlined the biggest advantages of the relaxed suburban 1950s lifestyle.

It never tried to be showy or ostentatious, and was more likely to be plain and understated.

Exposed beams in the sloped ceiling revealed the structure of this unaffected ranch house by architect Cliff May, while the furniture subtly blended luxury with practicality.

The bright pink — a top decorator color from the fifties — on the chairs and curtains added just enough color to keep this room decor interesting without being too fussy or overwhelming.

The contemporary white dining table was a heavy piece that grounded the room, and the pale tone coordinated with the top of the buffet unit nearby.

The dark woods of the chairs and the buffet contrasted with the white, and coordinated with the soothing brown-tan wall-to-wall carpeting.
