JoAnna designed the Safe Gamble House for her little sister Mikey’s adorable family. She was sure to incorporate Mikey’s love of mid-century modern decor and vintage finds into the home’s dining room. You also see southwest design elements as Mikey’s husband David is partial to southwest decor. The wood beams, boho rug, and cacti art print in the dining room all lend to David’s sensibilities. While the mid-century modern chandelier and dining set play to Mikey’s aesthetic.

3. Feature a mid-century modern style dining table & chairs

4. Create a minimalist centerpiece with modern candlesticks

Simple gold tapered candlesticks are all you need to create a minimalist centerpiece. A non-fussy centerpiece matches the dining room’s overall style. However, if a group of candlesticks doesn’t feel grand enough, opt for a modern candelabra–candles optional.
