The retro style is arguably one of the best aesthetics in modern interior design. Its vintage appeal and poppy attraction is what makes it such a huge hit! Moreover, there are tons of ways you can experiment with this style without having to compromise the modernity or sophistication. So today, we’ll be sharing your guide to dressing your homes in a retro ambiance!
1. To all the colors
The best part about going retro is that you get to choose some of the boldest colors on the palate. Of course you’ll have to balance them out with some neutrals but the fact that you get to choose such vibrant and striking color schemes is an absolute joy. The electric blue sofa upholstery and orange-beige accent chair in this image are a great example of this!
2. The styling matters
The retro style is chockfull of sharp angles and quirky accessories. So whenever you’re dressing your homes in this style, know that there’s a very open threshold for going quirky. So if you like that golden floor lamp that can never suit a modern design then a retro style ambiance is the perfect canvas to feature it!
3. Bold patterns for the win
When you’re dressing your homes in the retro style, you can also go for some bold and artsy patterns. You must also note that here, the colors don’t much matter – it’s the overall style you’re emulating. For example, the custom backsplash and floor pattern used in this kitchen interior design are such an awesome way for you to introduce a quirky yet individualistic vibe in the space.
4. Herringbone floors
Herringbone style flooring is one of the most coveted aesthetics in the whole world. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to assimilate it in too many interior design styles. However, the retro aesthetic is a great way for you to introduce such a floor pattern in your homes! It’s definitely going to complement your space amazingly!
5. Cheers to the furniture
And lastly, the furniture is always an integral part of the retro style. Once again, you can go all out with upholstery patterns and actual style. Eames Eiffel chairs, bean bags, customized shelves, industrial style buffets and sideboards are all a great choice to complement a retro style interior.
