MID MOD

Mid Century Modern style might be challenging to pull off when we talk about architecture or furniture pieces, but I believe it is even harder when we talk about flat, paper art. It took me a little bit to understand what made a piece feel "mid-mod," and the more I researched, the more I realized I wasn't as familiar with it as I thought I was. I mean yes, my dinning set its mid-mod, my lovely coach its mid-mod, but what makes "art" feel mid century modern? If three dimensional pieces can't translate to graphics, where do I start? Well, you research. Thats what you do. In fact, I think it's one of the coolest things about my profession; you get to know a little bit about a lot of things. So I started with architecture and was surprised to find out that it was a post war movement (1950's) that encouraged people to be outside by exposing nature. That's how we ended up with gorgeous spaces and large glass windows like The Stahl House, characterized by simple shapes and warm colors. Many years after we've started seeing so much of it, that the main meaning of the era gets lost. I tried designing patterns that not only showcased simplicity and warmth, but nature. Didn't have much hope of this collection turning into product, but as it turns out it became a successful and lovely, I might add, paper pack. So I bought it and took some pictures for you :) Hope you like how this turned out. My coworker and friend Olivia did an awesome job compiling and melding other patterns to it, and it looks so good! You can use them for stationary, lovely notes, or even just to frame and give your space a bit of 50's touch.
