William Bedgood has a theory about why midcentury modern styles have come back into fashion with such force, and its not because of the mania around TVs “Mad Men.” He started noticing the motif popping up in national ad campaigns around a decade ago—the design aesthetic was being used to sell everything from cars to window cleaning solution. For him, it simply comes back to demographics. “People who grew up in the 50s; theyre in a position to—and they want to—relive their childhood,” he says. But its not just boomers; Bedgood, team leader of Bedgood & Associates Real Estate Group at Keller Williams Intown in Atlanta, notes that millennials are some of the most ardent appreciators of midcentury modern style. He suggests that younger consumers may instead be reacting against the styles that dominated in the 1990s. “The 10,000-square-foot mansion wasnt cool anymore. Instead of the bigger house, they wanted a better house.”
Whether the millwork is left natural or painted should depend on how much homeowners want it to stand out or complement a certain period or style. Winkle recommends keeping millwork white, which makes it easy to live with over time and appeal more universally, especially to buyers. For traditional homes, however, Powell favors dark hues that more readily reveal texture. But she cautions that going dark can visually bring a ceiling down.
