A Top Californian Realtor Shares 8 Secrets for Mastering Mid-Century Modern Style

Sam Arneson specialises in selling mid-century homes – and here's their best advice for nailing the interior style.

It was an upbringing along California’s rustic northern coastline that planted the mid-century modern seed for Sam Arneson. The real estate agent and curator’s hometown of Marin was the backdrop for their childhood, growing up within a series of old houses and alongside an architecture and design family. “I was raised in a really groovy, woodsy town and a love of this style was imprinted from a very early age,” Arneson says. “As I grew up and explored the world beyond, I kind of realised this style was the end-all-be-all for me. Canyon cottages, cabins, and anything bedecked in wood + glass + trees is pretty much the way into my soul.”

Now based in Los Angeles and working with real estate firm Bryant/Reichling, Arneson teams up with clients who seek a similar soulful aesthetic. “I love finding really cool people really awesome houses.” They’re also a curator, building a like-minded community with currently 184K Instagram followers who all share a common affinity: mid-century modern style.

Of all the design aesthetics that have gripped the world’s attention in recent years, there’s perhaps no other quite as ubiquitous as mid-century modern. But why? “I think there’s a cultural craving for it,” Arneson explains. “We had this white-on-white aggressive minimalism in the mid-2010s, but I think it’s boomeranged very hard in the other direction. People are realising we want warmth, we want wood, we want natural textures, we want to get out of our houses and feel like we’re in nature – mid-century design has all of this kind of authenticity.”

If this movement speaks to your design sensibilities and you’re looking for ways to weave the narrative into your home, continue ahead for advice given through Arneson’s masterful lens.
