The Mixed Mod Project
The perfect mix of traditional & modern: a mid-century modern home in the midwest gets an updated living room design by Scout & Nimble.
One of our favorite aspects of design is just how fluid it can be. That’s why we are so excited to share our latest project with you! This mesmerizing mid-century modern home in the Midwest features an open floor plan, exposed brick, and plenty of dreamy natural light. The great bones of this home made for the perfect canvas to design in.
Our clients had two requests when we began: a tufted leather sofa and to feature the vivid print by acclaimed photographer Slim Aarons. With this in mind, we created a living space that mixed our favorite parts of traditional and modern styles. As for the tufted leather sofa, we decided on the Chester Stationary Sofa in Malawi Tonga.

The contrast of this rich, dark sofa against the light brick wall draws the eye in and up to the vibrant photograph. It might not be in the center of the room, like the Theodore Coffee Table, but it certainly is the center of attention in this awesome space.
The living room opens directly onto the kitchen and to distinguish the two spaces in this open concept home, we used the Lefka Mist Rug. The perfect compliment to the light and airy rug is the Transitional 3-Seat Sofa.
Upholstered in Crypton Fabric, this sofa is prepared to handle any spill. It’s comfortable, functional, and frames the space perfectly.
When it comes to seating, the more the merrier for this living space!

To make the space truly theirs, we took advantage of our client’s impressive book collection. We scattered the volumes throughout the space and paired them with vases and some of our favorite Bone Styling Beads. It’s these little personal details that make a house a home.
This cool, mid-century modern space was transformed into a welcoming, comfortable, mixed-modern living room and we know our clients and their guests will be able to kick back and relax in this space for years to come.
