In this mid century modern 1950s home, the decorators were keen on keeping a limited monochrome palette, with only a little bit of blue.

Otherwise, the retro family room decor in grey pretty much set the theme — right down to the foundation of gray slate floors.

The monochromatic effect continued to the fireplace hearth, which was black to match the stain on the dining room chairs. White topped the small dining table, and coordinated with the kitchen’s upper cabinets.

For the part of blue in the color harmony, the fireplace brick and lower kitchen cabinets were painted a slightly blue-gray.

The walls in the kitchen — the space between the countertops and upper cabinets — was a baby blue. Royal blue for the chair cushions, and the medium blue in the window curtain pattern, completed the journey into color.

A peninsula cabinet separated the kitchen from the rest of the living area, and could serve as a children’s snack bar or a buffet counter for parties.
