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!

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.
