No space is too small to be intentionally designed. It's often in decorating the details of our homes that interior design truly comes alive. The proof is in Kacey Musgraves's beautiful landing. 

The country singer's landing is a mid-century modern masterpiece. It is backed by a large, brightening curved window with a light wood walnut console table as the centerpiece. A vase of cherry blossoms adds some natural texture, while a checked black and white rug grounds the space with a contemporary moment. A beautiful mid-century capiz light fixture unites the entire look. 

'The landing is often seen as a transitional "non-space" in our homes,' says Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens. She continues, 'By turning this often overlooked space into a calming, designed corner rather than using it for landing storage, Kacey Musgraves interior Designer, Lindsay Rhodes, turns the entire home into an experience.'

Furthermore, the design style that Lindsay has chosen is a classic hit. Kacey's landing perfectly captures the spirit of mid-century modern decor, a favorite, timeless design style among design lovers. It incorporates all of the staples of the style, from natural materials to a warm color palette to soft, curving lines and a connection between the indoors and outdoors.

Jennifer says, 'The biophilic elements of Kacey's interiors help bring calm to her home. There are proven benefits to spending time around natural materials like wood, shells, and plants. Placing these materials in a space like a landing where you will see them every day can help to give you a sense of tranquility.'

Even better, mid-century modern design is a proven timeless design style. It incorporates elements of different periods, meaning that it will never look dated or out of place. By opting for a classic look like this, Kacey minimizes the number of times she will need to redecorate to keep the space looking fresh and current.
