Shop the Design: Mid-Century Modern Bedroom From West Elm

Shop the Design is back with a new mid-century modern bedroom from West Elm!

P.S. New around here and wondering what this series is all about? Shop the Design is a fun series where I source everything for a room from one retailer! Now, while I don’t normally design rooms that are all from one place, this is more about showcasing some of my favorite pieces from a store and seeing how they all come together in one room!

This space leans a little bit masculine at first glance, but when you look closely, you’ll see that it also has some curvy elements that add some balance and soften the look so that it still feels cozy and inviting. I stuck to a limited color palette for this one - grays, dark blues, and natural wood along with touches of black, white, and brass.

Take a look at the design and let me know what you think!

The sources are listed here below the design board and again at the end of the post!

It’s time for another Shop the Design! This time, it’s a mid-century modern bedroom from West Elm. Grab the sources and hear the thoughts behind the design over on the blog!

I mentioned in the intro that this bedroom has a masculine edge to it, but it also feels cozy and inviting. Why is that? Well, it has a lot to do with the curves seen in a lot of the pieces of furniture. Take a look at the nightstands, for example. The round tops complement and soften the more angular legs. Or that (amazing!) chandelier. It’s minimalist and slimmed down, but the swoop adds a feminine twist to the design. Curves are everywhere!

I think in mid-century design, things can sometimes start to look a little stark and harsh, so my goal here was to create a bedroom that still felt like a mid-century space, yet had a relaxed vibe. It’s tailored, but cozy. That’s how I want my bedroom to feel - how about you?

So what do you think of this mid-century modern bedroom? Do you have any questions about any of the other pieces I didn’t talk about? Let me know in the comments or over on Instagram!
