Some of the biggest decorating trends are back! Retro style is an eclectic mix of old styles and new forms, or new forms with old materials and finishes. Breathe new life into your interior design with these tips about retro style decorating!
FURNITURE IN RETRO DECORS
Retro style starts with furniture. Each piece -baroque mirrors, vintage metal tins or old leather sofas- will add a retro-inspired decor to your home. Choose colorful objects such as multi-colored throw pillows to bring nostalgia to a living-room or a bathroom. Floor lamps and lamps with square shades are both wonderful retro choices.
COLORS IN RETRO INTERIORS
If you want to give a room a retro feel, you can do it choosing vivid colors such as green, yellow or red. Avocado green is one of the most popular retro color choice, followed by mustard yellow, combined with dark tones of brown and black. Dare with pink and purple make a great addition to your retro decor.
TEXTURES IN RETRO ACCENTS
Don’t be afraid of textures! If you want to give retro accents to your home decoration, you can mix natural textures such as natural stone or wood with vinyls, velvets and plastics. You can create a focus on a wall with STONETACK™, the first auto-adhesive natural slate panel designed for decorating interior walls. Each panel is made from sheets of slate backed with a thin layer of adhesive to attach the panel to the wall. This innovative DIY product can be installed quickly and easily in just three steps.
