Vintage Hollywood is all about the glamor and the retro. While modernism may have been the prevalent aesthetic back in the late nineteenth century, retro and pop-art were a subtle trend. You can find those in Pulp Fiction and other vintage Hollywood movies.
Nowadays, this aesthetic has become a great trend. From the funky colors to the creative artwork, this style has a totally retro appeal. It also looks great in a stylish and trendy interior design!
The best part about this aesthetic is that it can now be compacted and set-up in small style interiors too. So if you’re a fan of the vintage vibe and lots of glamor, this post is definitely for you. If not, we hope you can get inspired!
Okay, now, are you ready for the 5 simple ways to effectively get the Vintage Hollywood aesthetic in your homes? Let's go!
1) Get creative with the neons
Neon colors are a huge taboo in conventional interior designs. They have this inherent knack of bringing a casual and garish vibe in a modern or contemporary setting – but not here! Here you can go crazy with the neons.
As you can see from the image, the designers have expertly imbued it in several aspects of the interior in beautiful way. From the lit up feature fixture to the sporadic use of yellow, the interior is brimming with playful visuals around this aesthetic.
2) Funky furniture
The Vintage Hollywood style lets you get carried away with the designs. So if you’re tired of the straight-laced, suede clad minimalistic furniture styles, then you will definitely feel a pull towards this one.
You can take liberties with even mixing and matching the accoutrements – like throw pillows – and add in comfy additions of your own – like the easy-chair as shown in the image.
3) Tile backsplash
This is one of those vintage traditions that just have to be followed when you’re designing on this specific style. Tiled backsplash is unique because it is literally vintage – but it also looks trendy if paired with the right colors. You can have a lot of fun mixing and matching the color scheme of your kitchen this way.
4) Curate vintage accessories
The best way to add on to any aesthetic is by curating accessories that enforce that specific style. So what better way to add on to the Vintage Hollywood vibe than adding vintage treasures like bathroom mirrors and sinks to extend that aura.
5) Layering on the style
Lastly, you should create a trendy combo of colors, fixtures and even lighting to get the best Vintage Hollywood effect possible. Just look at how the orange color scheme, retro fixtures and bald lighting create a totally nostalgic effect as shown in the image.
