As there is so much to choose from past styles, what you decide to include will ultimately be your own interpretation of the past, and will therefore be entirely unique and individual. During each of the past few decades there have been different materials, shapes, colours, artefacts, and gadgets that have left a lasting impression on all of us, some of which may be significant in the memories from our childhood and may therefore be more suited for your personal Retro style. Nowadays, anything from the 50's, 60's or even the 70's is fashionable again. However, because there are so many different ways to go about incorporating a Retro interior style into your home, it can be difficult to recognize it when you see it. The key identifying feature can therefore only be described as an old style with a modern twist.
With the ability to brighten and visually open up any space, it’s no wonder why an all-white space might appeal to most homeowners (and their space-starved homes). True, white hues make the perfect canvas, but going head-to-toe white isn’t as simple as it looks. We’ll say it again – these ivory shades aren’t the most easygoing; and if not done right, your whitewashed space can end up feeling like an unfinished project instead.
Rather, colours help to define and complete an all-white space, not stray it away from its theme. Incorporate one or two colourful pieces of furniture; or, you could paint your door in a different color (that also doubles as a visual feature at home). If you’re feeling less adventurous, bring in these colours through smaller accessories or soft furnishings. Just remember, add tinges of colour – not bucket-loads of them.
Every few decades, old designs seems to make a comeback, but with a modern twist. This is referred to as the Retro style, and is an eclectic mix of old styles and new forms, or new forms with old materials and finishes. The post war fifties and psychedelic sixties saw a move towards brighter and bolder colours most likely as a backlash to doom and gloom of the war torn forties. Nowadays Retro interior designs can be described as taking a little bit of these features and bringing them back into the present in order to create a new style of interior design that is both modern and fun.
