Luxuriously appointed, this 1960s home had a definite midcentury modern style, which was especially apparent in the sleek lines and minimal detail.
For example, the fireplace with only a small cutout opening, was functional but not emphasized.
Although the vintage living room was mostly grey, the golden tortoiseshell finish on the hearth wall and the mirror that was hung there helped to keep it from seeming too monochromatic — or too bland.
It also helped that there were shade variations in the plush, velvety finish on the soft barrel round swivel chairs, as well as on the paler tufted ottoman and couch.
This cool grey living room also had the chill shine of clear glass for a tabletop, a thick round lamp base was topped by a white lampshade, and set on top of a plain white stand.
A tiny part of a beaded curtain — with shiny white faceted beads — helped delineate this fireside conversation space from the adjacent area.
