Bold patterns and colors: 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.
See how your home can come alive with retro styling, and be amazed how modern and retro interiors can make you forget what era you actually live in. Proper lighting is crucial to every room. Natural lighting changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons. Weather can also affect and impact a room’s lighting. Lighting is perhaps one of the most important elements in our homes. I’m a huge fan of lights on dimmers.
Unique pendant lights and fixtures are not only functional; they are pieces of sculptural art. There are numerous online artists who custom-make these architectural lights. Look around until you find the piece that calls your name, and remember mid-century modern is not a matchy, matchy style, so no need to find lamp sets. Indeed, bold lighting is another must-have accessory to take your home back in time to this artistic era.
Homeowners are flooding the real estate market, hunting for unique mid-century modern gems, for numerous good reasons. For many of these homebuyers the main reason is simple: living in our mass-produced society has caused us to crave custom-made, unique designs. Simply put, our eyes are bored of staring at the same row upon row of houses that all look the same. The majority of us could get lost on our very own street.
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.
