This Is Fresh Midcentury Design at Its Finest

Who: Brit Arnesen, interior designer and founder of Brit Dot Design

Where: Kokomo, Indiana

Why we love this pic: This space is overflowing with the sort of midcentury elements that make the aesthetic so beloved, like the classic dining chairs and sputnik pendant light. But a whitewashed color palette featuring striking black accents infuses the look with a very of-the-now quality, creating a design that's as fresh as it is timeless.

The takeaway: Mix old and new design elements for a fresh and timeless look.
