Mid-century modern style is a trend that’s not going away anytime soon with an aesthetic that’s ultra chic, with pared down, clean lines with an organic ease that’s very appealing. Common theme elements found in mid-century style are pared-down wood furnishings that seemingly have leggy focal points, brassy finishes, leafy vegetation and plenty of natural light. The furnishings you would want to incorporate into your bedroom scheme should be unfussy, functional and feature characteristics that are very natural looking. This time period is all about comfort mixed with high-style, creating a seamless connection between indoors and out. Try to mix in other styles into your space so that the overall feel is not too stark and cold. A neutral color palette is the easiest to work with so that your space does not become overwhelming, where your eye travels everywhere (too many focal points in a room can be distracting)! Remember, this is your bedroom, the space you want to feel restful in. So keep it soothing and try adding playful pops of color for visual interest. Try playing with textures in bedding, pillows, upholstered headboards, throws and area rugs.
If you are still hesitant about incorporating this style into your bedroom scheme, start small-begin with a statement light fixture to infuse drama into your space. Mid-century light fixtures are typically sculptural, so they act as a piece of artwork in of themselves. Be sure not to add more than one, these cool art forms will compete with each other if multiples are installed in a single space. Try styling your space with some mid-century accessories, such as a piece of artwork (Etsy is an affordable way to start) or a retro style mirror.
