12 Midcentury Bedroom Ideas You'll Want to Use

There's been a major resurgence of midcentury aesthetics in recent years and it's showing no sign of slowing down. The style's ever-growing popularity makes complete sense, though: the airy, pared-back style of a midcentury design makes it a perfect complement to the exhale-inducing minimalism that continues to take over homes far and wide. And there might be no room better suited for this trend than the bedroom. The sleek simplicity of this style makes it an obvious choice for creating soothing boudoir vibes. Just take a look at the 12 stunning examples below.

One common thread in midcentury design is light, open space. By maintaining open space beneath the furniture your bedroom will feel and look lighter and more open.
