Mid-Century Decor is the Star of this 1968 Vintage Mobile Home

What is mid-century design exactly? According to an article in Decor-Aid, mid-century home decor is defined by a vibe that is fresh and poppy, retro-tinged, and completely alluring with its dedication to comfort and practicality wrapped up in a beautiful design that never goes out of style. Unlike other aesthetic movements, mid-century modern decor is streamlined in design, as form follows function while highlighting the materials used, rather than making them something they aren’t.

Mid-century design is super popular in smaller mobile homes because it takes advantage of smaller pieces of furniture and blends it with pops of color. And, there’s no better example of it than in this 1968 vintage mobile home!

Love the color combination.
Pendant lighting adds a touch of style to the breakfast bar.
Look at all that storage.
Updated flooring gives this place a whole new look.

The theme continues into the bedroom and bath of this hot single wide. Additions like a brightly covered accent wall, pops of color in the furniture, and wall hangings, all add to create a mid-century feel.

Pops of color complete this entertaining space.
Many older mobile homes include a carport like this.

There is so much we love about this 1968 vintage mobile home that is full of so much mid-century decor charm. And it’s so cool to see homeowners taking these older homes and adding designer touches to them. Older mobile homes can be a great source of housing, and it’s great that parks like Safari continue to keep them in their communities rather than replacing them with newer homes.

  1. This particular home is 720 square feet. It’s harder to find a company to insure anything older than 1976 but there are companies that will do it.

  2. how hard is it to insure these older mobile homes ??? do you know the square footage / size of this 1968 home ? thanks

  3. Try clearing your cache. All the images seem to be loading when I checked on our end.

  4. I cannot see any photos–I’ve turned off ad blocker and modified any security settings I can see and still no photos. Any ideas?

  5. I’m the agent that listed / sold this home. The owners did beautiful, quality renovations and it sold well over asking. Manufactured Homes are increasingly in demand because of their affordability and unique style. – Larry LaFond, Realtor. CA DRE #01935430
