Traditional interiors remain popular because of their practicality, but you can still have a contemporary and functional bedroom by making the most of innovative design choices.
As a place of rest and relaxation, it can be easy to play it safe with bedroom design. However, going bold is a great way to make the most of this important living space – and it’s not all about looks.
Introducing furnishings and fittings that transform how you use the space can make a huge difference to your lifestyle. What better way to start and end the day than in a practical yet stylish environment?
The Revival of Mid-Century Modern
Between the 1940s and 1970s, Europe and America experienced dramatic change in nearly every aspect of everyday life. It’s a sentiment we can all sympathise with as we try to come to terms with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
During this historic period of economic, social and political strain came a determination to embrace optimism, including in the home. The Mid-century interior design movement was inspired by this need to think positive and create rooms designed for a new way of life.
People wanted their homes to be places of comfort and utility, where they could live and work easily with the help of clever design, practical furnishings, and attractive details. These retro touches are now perfect for reinvigorating our own living spaces, including bedrooms.
Bringing Bold Design into your Bedroom
We all know that bedrooms are no longer just spaces in which to sleep. They are where we choose our outfits, communicate online, read books, watch films, maybe even exercise. Creating an atmosphere suited to all these activities isn’t easy, but it does allow for creativity.
Chances are you’re already familiar with the Mid-century modern aesthetic. Perhaps you have first- or second-hand memories of the 1950s and 1960s, decades defined by their innovative designs. Many films, posters and advertisements from the era capture the ‘look’.
Browsing vintage fairs and online collections will help ignite your imagination; find shapes, colours, materials and textures that you like and think how these could be incorporated into a bedroom space; for example, by creating a brightly painted feature wall.
