The Main Concept of Retro Living Room
It seems common to associate the term retro with vintage style. There is actually no something wrong with such an opinion.
Something you should know is that the retro design points at more modern and newer era. It usually describes the situation and style of the eras of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Overall, the decoration along with furniture you should apply is being the combination and blending of vintage and modern designs.
If you are then rather confused with the type of furniture you need to choose, you can select the minimalist one. But you can add bold or pastel colors for making it more retro.
It is also no matter whether you want to apply it over large or small living room. If you think the living room you have is small enough, it seems you must lessen the color combination. It is to avoid the sense of stuffy and cramped.
The Details of Retro Living Room
Retro design also associates to certain details or patterns like floral, stripes, plaid and polka dot. It seems greater if you use one of those patterns as the main theme of living room.
But you have to notice the balance principle. So that, the atmosphere will not seem complicated and not comfortable.
If you already use the pattern as wallpaper, you should let the furniture plain although still in the same main color. On the other hand, if you prefer furniture with motif, the wallpaper should be plain and simple.
