The Ultimate in Bedroom Design: Mid-Century Modern Bedding
These mid-century modern style comforter sets, bedspreads and other related bedding, are a great way to introduce your mid-century modern bedroom theme without breaking your budget.
Modern, mid-century style is simply described as a genre betraying the dramatic shift in architectural and interior design. Its distinctive style changed the face of architecture and interior design to reflect a fresh, casual face, one of clean lines and easy-to-maintain finishes--vastly different than the 'dignified' Victorian style that seemingly overstayed its welcome in homes the world over.
Fast forward and the mid-century modern design of 1933 to 1965 still reigns among urban sophisticates (that would be us) still appreciating its spirited energy-- complements of dramatic hues and patterns all its own.
Scroll down to peruse mid-century modern design comforters and bedding sets you'll love along with a few decorating ideas that render your bedroom the amazing retreat you've been pining for, for far too long.

The true style really shows with the atomic pattern paired with mustard yellow, turquoise blue and brown.

The grey lends plenty of go-ahead to metal finishes, if that's where you're headed: metal headboards, polished chrome lighting, and trim (on knobs, for instance) will work fabulously in even the smallest of bedrooms or loft spaces.
Starting your mid-century theme is best begun with an amazing focal point, one that can stand on its own, command the eye's attention, support your theme and welcome guests. One could liken a focal piece as a space's 'host' or 'stage director.' That's one busy focal piece, indeed!
Mid-century modern has an energy all its own in bright, bold patterns like these comforters I've featured, here with their fabulous wallflower pattern. The striking design is unmistakably mid-century modern and the light background only emboldens the contrast you need for a successful start.

We usually hone in on comforters; however we should consider comfort, too.
