Trend Alert: Mid Century Modern Wallpaper

Where to Use Mid-Century Modern Wallpaper

Some things just never go out of style, and Mid-Century Modern design is one of them. From futuristic space-age atomics to bold geometrics and stylized florals, the simplicity of MCM style has kept it relevant decades after its initial conception in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Classic Mid-Century Modern wallpaper is a great way to introduce the style to your space whether you have matching Scandinavian furniture sets or you’re looking for a way to introduce a hint of MCM style to your décor.

Types of Mid-Century Modern Wallpaper

Off the bat, you’re going to want to decide if you’re looking for a Mid-Century wall mural or a Mid-Century Modern wallpaper pattern. Non-repeating Mid-Century wall coverings offer a bold look and are perfect for creating show-stopping feature walls, but they tend to overwhelm smaller spaces.

Scalable Mid Mod wallpaper patterns are a perfect way to complement any size of space, from large pattern repeats to decorate a big public space to small pattern repeats perfect for bathrooms or even surprise touches in hallway closets.

After deciding if you’re looking for a non-repeating MCM wall mural or a patterned Mid-Century wallpaper, it’s time to choose what kind of motif you’re looking for.


Part of the appeal of MCM design is the simple geometrics and bold colors that Mid-Century modernist artists used. From 3D optical illusions like our Prism Pattern wallpaper to simple Scandinavian-inspired patterns like our Lucienne Pattern wallpaper, geometric Mid-Century Modern wallpaper is sure to bring style to your walls. For an even more dramatic look, consider using a geometric wall mural like our Flow Dark #1 Wallpaper Mural.


Mid-Century floral wallpaper features fun folk-art-inspired looks that follow a Scandinavian simplicity. From complimentary color palettes like our Atomic Tulip Pattern wallpaper to bright pops of color like our Lazy Daisies Retro Flower wallpaper, scalable MCM floral patterns are an easy way to add a natural touch to your interior.


The atomic age captured the imagination of artists as well as scientists. One of the most recognizable hallmarks of Mid-Century design is the simple six-pointed star shape known as the atomic starburst. Use 1950s atomic wallpaper like our Atomic Amoeba Pattern wallpaper or our Dusty Blue Atomic Pattern wallpaper to add a fun retro edge to your room.
