I enjoy mid-century modern, it has an inherent warmth to it that most Deco or International Style homes don’t. I understand Industrial Chic and New Modernism and they can be striking as well but I very much gravitate to homes with a high degree of inviting warmth and comfort. Very few IS-modern homes and pretty much zero PoMo homes gives me that. I think the heavy use of wood in mid-century modern, new modernism, Wright homes etc. gives you that warmth and feeling of “home” instead of “house”.

Aesthetically and comfort wise, I like living in Edwardian and Victorian homes the best. It’s like wearing an ancient, moth eaten sweater that feels great despite the holes. While clean modernism can be more calming, I find Edwardian/Victorian more comforting. I love the perfection of Georgian but it can be stifling.
