Interior Design Bingo Definitions


Mid Century Modern – A style of design that began after World War II and continued into the 1960s, that is marked by simplicity, clean lines, organic forms, and materials such as wood, metal, and plastic. Though color is used quite a bit in post-war design, mid-century modern is typically less cutesy than the more pop-art offerings of the later 1960s. (source) Think Mad Men.

Thanks for that. I was wondering about a Vignette. How about up lighting. I know what it is (I think) but maybe an example?
