35 Vintage Postcards Show the Interior of Bedrooms in the 1950s and ’60s American Hotels

After WWII, the fast technological advances, the growing consumer market and the change in lifestyle greatly affected interior design. The TV became a focal point, modern household appliances and kitchen design rapidly changed and thus became more integrated into the living space. Central heating also had a major impact on domestic living, because people could now utilize larger areas of their homes at the same time.

The general public became increasingly design conscious and keen on new and unusual objects. The style was most often rather eclectic, with a mix of furnitures of different types. During the late 1950s and ’60s, interiors became more bold and colorful and plastic was the preferred material for modern style furniture.
