30 Mod and 60s Inspired Bedrooms to Catch Your Eye
The 1960s were all about color, geometric designs and larger-than-life style. In these 40 examples, you will see that getting a mod-themed bedroom straight from the 60s isn’t impossible in 2019.

2. Every Surface Can Use Some Pink
Walls, floors, furniture and more can look incredibly appealing when draped in vibrant pink tones. Pairing pink with other warm colors like yellow and orange make this room not only very bright, but also surprisingly cozy.

The pale pink bedspread is beautiful, but the real shining gems in this room are the curtains and the distinctly 60s area rug. Matching bedroom furniture and the smooth look of hardwood flooring tie this quietly mod-inspired bedroom together quite nicely.

8. Bold Colors Belong on Walls
The berry color that’s been applied to this wall will make any furniture placed in front of it (and any décor displayed on it) stand out brilliantly in true 1960s style. In this example, a bright green cupboard and patterned lampshade show that color isn’t anything to be afraid of when decorating.

10. Architectural Features Make a World of Difference
The carved wall features provide a beautiful and unique look that you won’t find in just any bedroom. This is the type of over-the-top and ornate décor that the 60s is so well associated with. With this kind of style in place, you can use any vivid color to really emulate the boldness of this colorful era. This user chose a berry pink shade, but you can go with whatever your heart desires.
11. A Corner That Stands Out
This corner dresser can fit beautifully into any theme, but the surrounding decorations are straight from the sixties. Heavy on the warm colors, the example you see here is inviting and cozy-looking. The addition of something green on top of the dresser adds an unexpected element of cooler colors that stands out but doesn’t detract from the theme of the space.
12. Get Groovy with Geometric Designs

13. The Sixties are in the Details
This beautifully decorated room harnesses the power of accents and details to show some serious sixties inspiration.

Yellow and pink have a way of somehow complementing each other when used properly, as this user so effectively did. On every surface, you can see this contrast – even on the wall, with the painted headboard! This bedroom is classically sixties and would be a perfect sleeping spot for a child who loves to be surrounded by color.
17. Dreams in Tie Dye
Warm colors are strongly associated with the 60s era, but cool colors certainly have their place, too. The cool, blue tie-dyed bedspread is only one sixties-inspired feature in this room. The wall hangings call back to this free-spirited time, as well, through the use of psychedelic art and vivid, contrasting colors.

20. The Right Bedspread Makes a 60s Statement

Floral patterns and bright colors are certainly innate in 1960s décor, and you don’t need to go with a very bright overall theme to make this happen. In this room, the user has applied daisy-patterned wallpaper to the walls surrounding the bed. They then used their bedding and a few small details to complete the look, without being ornate or complicated in design.

23. Simplicity in Pale Blue
Yes, primary colors are all the rage in 1960s-inspired interior décor. But this pale shade of baby blue fits perfectly into this subtly decorated bedroom. The curtain, throw pillows and the chair in the corner are all delicate elements that add a touch of the sixties without relying on stark contrast to look beautiful.

28. Do You See a Pattern Here?
This patterned comforter takes what would have been a relatively plain room and injects the style of the 1960s into it with no effort at all. Sometimes, a printed sheet or curtain is really all you need to achieve the look you’re after.
