Think sleek, cosy minimalism that makes life a little simpler – and a lot more enjoyable. We’ll show you how to modernise this retro look and achieve a Marie Kondo-approved finish.

Everything old is still new, thanks to this clean, functional and timeless look. Midcentury modern blends so well with other styles of décor, so its perennial popularity is no surprise. This less-is-more take on the 1940s look is all about warm woods, simple lines, muted palettes and woven textures.
