The mid-century modern style references architecture, furniture, materials and technologies which became popular after World War II but you’ve probably heard it being mentioned in the context of modern and contemporary projects, in particular in relation to interior design and decor. The reason why this style is still popular today is because it simply makes sense given its connection to Scandinavian minimalism and the fact that natural materials stand at the core of it all. That being said, let’s check out some charming mid-century modern bedrooms and see what else we can learn from them.
