Retro Style is Back

In the last few years interior designers have been getting their groove on by utilising retro designs and furniture throughout the house. The living room has become a popular place to feature retro styling with a modern twist and if you want to add some flair to your home, try some of these simple yet effective design techniques.

While traditional retro design overloaded the eye with vibrant colours and patters, modern interior designers are now using these visuals as bold statements, pairing them with sparse muted colours and minimalist lines to give a room a chic, tasteful edge. By adding retro pieces to your living space, you can create a fresh look that will liven up your home.

The best way to do this is to choose one or two elements, such as a lounge or curtain that has an energetic retro design. Colours such as turquoise, orange, purple, yellow and pink were very popular amongst retro interior designers and create strong visual statements. You can then make this feature stand out by using minimal colours and patterns in the rest of the room. Blacks, whites and other low-key colours such as beige or brown are perfect and will give your retro furnishings a modern look.
