Complete Your Space with Midcentury-Inspired Planters: 4 Styling Tips

Mid-century design is characterised by its clean lines, organic curves, and vibrant colours. If you're looking to infuse your home with this timeless aesthetic using our specially designed planters, here are five styling tips to help you achieve the perfect look.

1. Play with Bold, Retro Colours

Mid-century design is known for its bold use of colour. Incorporate planters in vibrant hues like mustard yellow, olive green, and clay. These colours not only pay homage to the era but also add a lively touch to your space.

  • Tip: Pair your colourful planters with neutral walls and furniture to let the colours pop without overwhelming the room. For a cohesive look, repeat these colours in other decor elements such as cushions, artwork, or rugs.

2. Embrace Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes are a hallmark of mid-century design. Explore our planters, they have clean lines and simple, geometric forms such as cylinders, spheres, and rectangles. These shapes provide a sleek and modern look that fits seamlessly into any space.

  • Tip: Arrange planters of different shapes and sizes together to create an interesting and dynamic display. Use tall, slender planters for corners or narrow spaces, and round, low-profile planters for coffee tables or shelves.

3. Mix Materials for Visual Interest

Mid-century design often features a mix of textures. Incorporate planters with terrazzo, etched and block colour finishes. 

  • Tip: Place block colour planters with smooth finishes alongside terrazzo or etch planters to create contrast and visual interest. This combination keeps your decor looking fresh and layered.

4. Create Symmetry and Balance

Mid-century design values symmetry and balance. When arranging your planters, aim for a balanced composition that creates a sense of harmony. This could be a symmetrical arrangement on either side of a sofa or fireplace or a balanced display on a shelf or console table.

  • Tip: Use planters in pairs or groups of three to create symmetry. If you have planters of different sizes, place the larger ones at the back and smaller ones at the front to create depth and balance.

Incorporating mid-century inspired planters into your home is a stylish way to bring a touch of retro charm and modern elegance to your space. By playing with bold colours, embracing geometric shapes, mixing materials, highlighting architectural features, and creating symmetry and balance, you can create a beautifully styled home that reflects the timeless appeal of midcentury design. Happy decorating!
