What is the post Edwardian era?

The Edwardian period refers to the reign of Edward VII 1901–1910. I have heard of the years up to the First World War referred to as Post-Edwardian, but the period is so dominated by WW1. After that, the decades are referred to as the 20's, 30's etc, rather than named after the monarch.
