Sometimes it is great to go back in time when it comes to furnishing your home. There were so many great decades before us, and each offered its own unique style and ambiance that, frankly, some of us want to last forever. Luckily your retro style is in great fashion no matter what decade you want to appease your home. With your retro furnishing and designs you can live it up like it was yesterday!
First, start with the outside of your home. The addition of patio furniture allows you to spend more time outside enjoying nature at its best. With the many different retro styles available, you can easily create a look that you love. Every room in your home should reflect the retro style that your heart desires. Each room brings its own sets of possibilities to create that special ambiance that you seek.
There are many ways to create this awesome outdoor patio space at your home. A few examples include:
Add outdoor furniture. If you’re unable to find retro pieces in your era you can easily design your own styles! Your outdoor furniture is a representation of who you are; your style and personality. It says so much – make it count!
Paint the walls. Nothing takes you back in time better than the addition of new paint. Choose your favorite color, buy a few rollers and brushes and turn this into a DIY project the whole family can enjoy.
Look at thrift stores, flea markets and antique stores for vintage furniture. You might just be surprised at how much you can find at these locations, all at reasonable prices.
Curtains are a real highlight to your retro look. Make sure that you have curtains ready to put up in your home to add that special charm. Curtains can really give a room its ‘ambiance’!
Look for vintage decorations. Again, head to flea markets and antique shops to find these treasures.
