While bright colors and fun furniture designs are all well and good, you should also use a hint of subdued and subtle to make your designs just a little bit modern. This can balance out the authenticity of the retro aspect and make your spaces look extremely elegant in the process. Distressed wooden surfaces and matt flooring are an excellent way to do so.
