Five Stylish and Cozy Midcentury Modern Bedrooms
There’s nothing better than a neat and organized bedroom. Although decorations can add personality to a room, too many knick-knacks can lead to clutter and an overwhelming energy in your home. For this reason, many trendsetting homeowners have turned to the mid-century modern style for inspiration, making simple design and space-efficient furniture the center of their room’s motif. With an emphasis on muted colors, geometric shapes and strategically-placed decorations, these bedrooms represent a simple and elegant way of living.
Below, we’ve showcased five of our favorite mid-century modern bedrooms and give you an idea of how to make your room simpler and more more serene. Additionally, we’ve outline some tips on using mid-century modern techniques to make your room stylish and efficient. If you’re looking for a more organized way of life, simplifying your bedroom might be the best place to start.
Start With Your Bed
An intelligently-designed bed can be a great place to start when making the room feel more organized. Because it is most likely the largest piece of furniture in your room, a sleek-yet-rustic bed frame is the basis for any mid-century inspired bedroom. The Hunter Bed from roveconcepts.com (seen above), is the perfect bed for anyone looking to make their room more spacious. With less space underneath the frame, you’ll have less room for clutter below and more room above the mattress, giving the illusion of higher ceilings.
Take Advantage of the Windows
One of the main goals of mid-century modern design is to make every room feel as spacious as possible. Organizing your room around the windows will open up the space. Try letting the light shine in and watch how much more aesthetically-pleasing your room becomes.
Utilize Multiple Colors
A mix of earth tones with touches of pastel colors will make your bedroom into a graceful, natural-feeling place. Because artificial colors are so jarring, they can often overwhelm a space and subconsciously make you uncomfortable. Instead of decorating your room with lime green and hot pink, take inspiration from nature and surround yourself with the calming colors of the environment. These colors tend to look fantastic under sunlight and will pair nicely with your open windows.
Incorporate Natural Elements
Decorating your room with a few houseplants will give your bedroom a relaxed feeling and make it a great place for you to wake up every morning. While you don’t want to overload your space, strategically placing a couple of plants throughout the room will give it the elegant look you’re going for. Additionally, images of nature will pair nicely with your woodgrain bed frame and earth-toned furniture.
Pick Up Some Handmade Decorations
No mid-century modern bedroom is complete without a few pieces of handmade artwork placed throughout it. Some oil paintings, ceramic bowls and handcrafted chairs will contrast nicely with the geometric shape of your bed. They can be the perfect touch to a neatly-organized bedroom.
