In pursuit of overpowering the lifelessness of a house, people who love old fashion tend to capture trends and styles of the past and this gave rise to the retro concept. A retro style decoration is an idea pegged on the combination or mixture of fashions from the past such as those belonging to 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. It is more often confused with vintage styles which are actually style of the 1950’s and below. So, how could you create a retro styled home?
Since retro is just about reliving of the precedent approaches, creating a retro look is easier than starting from scratch. To materialize the retro style, this can be seen among home’s furniture such as the fabric’s color and texture of things around. Retro utilizes bold and striking colors; therefore, it definitely requires a stronger personality to pursue it. The strong color pulls off a lively, loud and unfading style which suits anyone’s taste. The first benefit of retro style is that it never goes out of tune regardless of time.
What is the proof of being “in” for retro style in modern time? Simply look on furniture being sold in furniture shops. Retro or classical styles are always there as option. Retro bar stools with chrome bar, vinyl coated seat, ottoman or footrest, square shaped lampshades, oval shaped sofa and more to list are just some of the retro furniture. Chrome retro bar stools would be my favorite but it is entirely up to you to choose the ones that you like and will satisfy your needs.
And to justify retro in a contemporary setting, do look at the colors. Are they loud red, bright orange, navy blue, dark and lime green and black? Most of the designs of the fabric are in motion shapes depicting loud actions. To speak of retro style, it is not just being old fashion but also incorporating lively features in seemingly monotonous and quiet surroundings. Retro is the best idea in giving a new life to your home. Enjoy exploring the retro style.
