Every twenty to thirty years, the world of design seems to make a comeback, but in a slightly better way.
Whether it’s is the world of fashion, colors or home decor, retro style is an eclectic mix of old styles and new forms, or new forms with old materials and finishes.
From the psychedelic prints of the seventies to the fifties appeal of oversized light fixtures and bubbly forms, retro style home decor is back in a big way! Here are a few ways to get the look in your modern home.
Retro styling brings together bold patterns and colors into your home. If you enjoy large patterns, try using them on your walls with wallpaper, paint or murals.
For the same affect throughout your furniture, consider using bold fabrics and coordinating textiles such as rugs, and window treatments. Try and keep the bold patterns and colors within a few colors for the palette. Too many colors will make your room look scattered, and uninviting.
