Warm neutrals aren't going anywhere, and Olivia Rodrigo is here to prove it. The Driver's License singer shared a video of singing and dancing in her living room with her mom, and we couldn't help but notice the gorgeous, warm, neutral selection of mid-century modern furniture in her space. From the cane chairs to the jute rug and the Noguchi-style lamp, beige, tan, and brown shades are the hero colors.
The cozy color scheme lends a warm and relaxed feeling to Olivia's mid-century modern living room, and perhaps inevitably, designers are impressed.

Kelly Collins, interior designer and Head of Creative at Swyft Home, states: 'I love Olivia's living room style, which has a gorgeous mid-century modern look. The mixture of different wood tones makes for a clean and timeless design and leaves room for her to accessorize and bring in on-trend colors and tones.'
Kelly Collins is a trained interior designer and head of creative at the furniture company Swyft. Her role involves observing furniture trends and working with designers and influencers to create spaces anchored by beautiful pieces.
The shades that Olivia has incorporated are some of the biggest color trends of 2024. Neel Bradham, CEO of global design brand Parador, explains: 'Gray is falling out of favor as we’re rejecting anything clinical or cold in pursuit of warm, cozy palettes. Beiges, medium browns, and dark chocolatey woods will reign for our floors in the year ahead.' These warm tones cover the majority of the space in Olivia's home, reinventing the idea of decorating with neutrals.
Neel is the CEO of Parador, a leading global flooring company since 1977. The brand champions quality in wood flooring, aiming to pair style with superior function.
In addition to the colors in the space, the open kitchen window has further effects in making Olivia's living room feel inviting.
'The kitchen hatch window is unique and, having one myself, I can see lots of benefits. There will be more visibility when hosting and cooking in the kitchen, meaning you can socialize and prepare the meal,' Kelly says.
'The hatch can also be used as a breakfast nook with bar stools placed around it, and adds extra light into the kitchen.' With all the conversations on whether open-plan is going out of style, this is the perfect middle ground.
