Retro Décor styles to Go For in 2022

I am quite suspicious when it comes to old-fashioned style. I am quite keen on going for pieces that have the 70s vibe. Last month, I got excited to have a new (old) heater from my husband’s uncle. It’s a vintage piece.

But the retro décor is not only the furniture that is found at our grandparents’ house. Unlike vintage, which really uses original pieces, retro is inspired by items and prints from previous decades, mainly from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, as an updated reinterpretation.

Not only the mix of strong colours, but also different materials and textures are some of the factors that make the retro decor so full of personality. But it doesn’t mean you need to make big changes in your rooms.

A mix of modern elements and vintage items will do. A few key items are enough. The change doesn’t have to take place in the whole house.

Where to start?

To design your retro decor, it’s important to list all the items you want to buy, whether it’s appliances, small appliances, or decorative objects. Charity shops and online retro shops are places to go for.

You will find several options that can help you in this mission, such as paintings, lamps, lamps, dressing tables and much more! Enjoy!

I guess kitchen is ten best room to start creating a retro space. The main tip is always investing in appliances with a design from decades old. It can be a stove or the refrigerator, for example.

S appliances such as food mixers are also an option. In this case, always pick a nice corner to show it off. Another clever alternative is giving a retro finish to some appliances that are in in good conditions.

Investing in a retro fridge is also a great alternative. Colours like gem yellow, sky blue and red can guarantee the desired effect.

I don’t know about you, but I quite the idea of using pastel colours to make a room out stand. For this reason, I guess a pastel floral wallpaper would be a classic option for anyone looking to create a retro room.

In this case, it’s worth investing in retro furniture, such as dressers, bedside table, dresser with colourful drawers. Also, don’t forget the decorative items that can make all the difference, such as pictures, a lampshade and a yellow or red lamp, for example.

If you want to go further, what about a creative exhibition of printed photos? In this case, you can bet on both the picture frame and the picture clothesline. And, before revealing, it’s worth editing the files and turning them into black and white or applying the sepia tone, which refers to the old.

Hallway

Another space that deserves a bit of retro vibe is our hallway. A rack for a retro room may be small and simple, but it usually has impressive details that make all the difference in the decoration.

If the environment is already very colourful, prefer the wooden retro room rack, preferably with round handles. Even if it’s in a neutral colour, it helps to complement the environment in just the right measure. Then just add decorative elements such as a frame and potted plants in vibrant shades!

White was always a colour that is considered easy to match. It goes with everything. Most Scandinavian rooms tend to have a white background, which makes perfect sense.

This kind of style itself largely adopts neutral tones to maximise natural light and this is an idea that works perfectly in the small dining area.

This connects you with the space around you, gives you design flexibility and allows you to easily switch to a different style in the future.

Adaptable

The Scandinavian style is quite adaptable. The neutral base of the Scandinavian style allows it to be combined with others in a very natural way.  

It allows you to experiment with different decorations, seasonal tones, and trending patterns with ease.

Space is everything when it comes to Nordic design. The work between form and functionality ensures that the house following this style maximises the available space.

The use of adaptable furniture can be a way to ensure that the style works even when there are visitors; Using furniture such as folding tables, which can be closed, or round tables, which allow you to place chairs without consuming additional space, for example.

Simple Silhouettes

Simple and charming silhouettes are a quite impressive combination. Unlike Provencal, Scandinavian has simple lines and straight lines that even highlight geometric shapes. The less far-fetched and cleaner it is, the better. So, it’s easy to form the combinations, isn’t it?

Clean Furniture

Clean and improvised furniture is one of the greatest features of the Scandinavian decoration. If we can use furniture that is composed of different styles in an improvised and balanced composition, we will have an amazing result in interior design. How can we go wrong with it?

In addition to furniture with simpler and straighter lines, wood is also very common in Scandinavian decor. Below you can see a room with Scandinavian decor where the wooden furniture matches the Gray sofa and striped rug.

Perfect Composition

It’s impossible not to fall in love with this kitchen, which mixes materials and light hues. The environment is part of a small apartment with integrated environments and is beautiful with its minimalist woodwork and no handles.

The countertop and half of the wall received a granite with a grey background, which served as the basis for the accessories that follow the same neutral palette.
