Retro style furniture has an abstract feel to it, with each piece almost fighting for the limelight as the focal point of the room. Sofas are broad and elongated with multi-colored throw pillows for an added dash of color. Shiny chrome barstools with bright red seats draw your attention to a wet bar or diner-style kitchen while Mitt chairs and puzzle-piece ottomans provide unique seating for guests.
Colours in Retro Decors
One of the easiest ways to give a room a retro feel is to choose retro colours. Fortunately, that’s not hard to do. Avocado green is by far the most popular retro colour choice, followed closely by mustard yellow and combinations of brown, black, white and red. In addition, purple and hot pink both make a powerful addition to your retro decor.
Don’t be surprised to find items that have a little of everything, with mixes of bright orange, green, indigo blue, and yellow on one single piece. Tie-dyed fabrics, checked patterns, and elaborate paisley prints were also a trademark of a bygone era.
Fun Retro Lighting
Floor lamps and lamps with square or tasselled shades are both wonderful retro choices. Or choose a swag multi-coloured chandelier that plug into a wall socket and feature a dangling cord draped from hook to hook.
Flooring for a Retro Feel
There are only three choices with flooring when you choose retro-style decorating– natural wood, shag carpeting, and a bold mix of tiles placed in a checkerboard pattern. The possibilities really are, endless and the only limit is your imagination.
