Cool Photos Show What Bedrooms Looked Like in the 1940s

Multiple bedroom styles coexisted in the 1940s, reflecting the decorating enthusiasms of a decade, which featured soldiers returning from war, a homebuilding surge and the onrush of the modern era with its increasingly simplified designs.

Bedrooms often reflect Art Moderne, the successor to the glamorous Art Deco decor of preceding decades, which remained popular during the 1940s. Whether bedrooms are traditional or modern, pattern and jewel-tone color define the era, and strategic use of these elements spotlights areas of bedroom elegance.

Here below is a set of cool photos that shows what bedrooms looked like in the 1940s.

  1. The first photograph is from the 1950s not the 1940s. She could not have had a television set in her bedroom during the 1940s time frame and the screen would not have been so large. Televisions in homes were very until the 1950s.
