Even the simplest retro look can transform your living room and bedroom into a chic and trendy space. Follow our simple tips for a quick and stylish makeover.
- Find your style: Retro typically takes its inspiration from the fashion, art and pop culture of the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. To avoid a chaotic, messy look and confusion of styles, pick an era you would like to pay tribute to. Each has its own share of colours, patterns and finishes with unique appeal.
- Choose your retro colour: It’s one of the easiest ways to give your home a retro style. However, be warned that retro requires a bold approach, i.e. bright colours and wild designs. So don’t commit unless you feel confident you can pull it off be able to enjoy it. If you are a minimalist at heart but still want to go retro, express yourself with a single piece of retro-styled living room furniture. Mustard yellow, green and combinations of black, white and red are popular choices.
- Select furniture that matches the architecture of your home: It is always preferable to choose furniture that will accent or complement the style of your home. Take cues from materials (such as brick, wood and stucco), window style and architectural details like columns and arches and other period features.
- Decorate with accessories that bring out retro appeal: Think about a boldly-patterned rug, bright and printed throws and pillows or even a geometric-shaped metallic lamp. Remember to keep art and sculptures abstract.
Retro furniture typically combines a variety of shapes and textures and unusual colours. So be ready to go all out! Having said that, remember that mixing colours and shapes always requires careful thought.
