    Retro Interior Design Tips.


    And here we are again in Sweet Blog, the sweetest blog online.

    The place to be for all fans of the 'Home Concept.'


    Today, we will discuss some 'Retro' interior design tips that will help you if you intend to add a bit of retro touch to your home -Design.


    'R E T R O.'

    We are pretty sure you've heard that phrase a million times before and in different aspects.


    The exact definition of the term is:

    "a reference to the style of the style and especially to the fashions of the past revived or renewed: fashionable nostalgic or old-fashioned."


    Many would argue that 'Retro Design' refers only to a style used in the earlier decades of the last century.

    This claim must be better established.

    Even a design style from the Victorian era, which will be reflected somehow in modern Design nowadays, will also be considered 'retro.'

    Retro aspects can be reflected in many of our areas of life - in the fields of culture and society and even in the fields of Design and philosophy.

    Naturally, in this article, we would like to focus on the retro aspects related to your Home Design. We will do so by presenting some retro interior design tips.


    But before starting, it is essential to avoid common mistakes and understand the difference between two separate (but similar) concepts - RETEO and VINTAGE.

    'Retro' refers to a period style expressed in a timeline, and 'Vintage' refers to the object's age.


    An accessory designed in the shape of the Renaissance period will always be considered Retro, while an Armenian sofa will be regarded as Vintage in a hundred years or so.

    For more information on this, please check out this article.


    In light of the resurgence of retro style in fashion, we are also witnessing some retro blossoms in the design world - mainly in home design. Indeed, more and more people are interested in retro touch when designing their homes.

    Just like in fashion aspects, Retro expresses a desire to return to something ancient/authentic, and the same goes for your home design. Ultimately, your house is your safe place, and it is clear that you want it to be designed according to your heart's wishes.

    Retro-style decorating usually has a fun, lively feel: bright colors, wild designs, and a sense of flair.


    As always, later in the article, a refreshing infographic presentation and a video summarizing its content will be presented to you.


    'Retro Interior Design TIPS.'

    Hop on!





    1. Choose A Source Of Inspiration.


    As mentioned, the central aspect of retro is drawing inspiration from a specific period of time in the past. Therefore, you must first understand the period from which you want to draw inspiration.

    Don't be lazy. Look for materials and read.

    At first glance, you may think that the Victorian era, for example, is the one from which you want to draw inspiration and design your home in its image. And yet, Maybe after more in-depth research, you will come to realize there are better sources of inspiration that suit you.

    Here, you can find a brief timeline of the interior design movements.

    The above was the first tip from our 'Retro Interior Design Tips list.'

    On to the next one.



    2. Minor Change.


    Don't panic to think that retro design necessarily means bankruptcy or overwhelming work.

    You will be surprised to hear that sometimes a relatively simple operation, such as repainting/replacing upholstery, etc., is quite enough to provide the necessary retro touch.


    3. Wallpapers.


    Quality wallpaper is one of the essential elements for retro home design. And despite the tremendous progress in the field and the renaissance that the old-fashioned area has enjoyed, the wallpapers have not yet returned in full force.
    It is essential to understand that back in the day. Wallpaper was one of the most common elements of any in-wall home design.

    4. Unique Furniture.


    Undoubtedly, furniture is one of the essential elements to consider when granting a retro touch to your home design.

    As noted above, the guideline principle is being slightly 'Different' with some Adaptation to a specific era.

    Although we do not underestimate anything, what is really important is 'Cultural Visibility,' not the issue of efficiency (the furniture location/convenience) and functionality (its "correct" location, design-wise), and we're not talking about a specific piece of furniture. It is a 'Concept.' 

    Grant free rein to your original and independent thought.

    If it's nostalgically reminiscing popular styles from back in the day - You are on the right track.

    5. Retro Colors.



    The famous Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky once said:

    Color is a power that directly influences the soul.


    Retro colors are pretty unique and pleasant. If you wish to grant your home some retro touch, paint your walls with these colors.


    But, 'what are retro colors anyway?' You must be asking.

    We thought you would never ask:

    White, red, mustard, yellow, and black. Delicate green. Even purple and pink are considered acceptable retro colors.



    Retro colors are so beautiful!



    Remember! There is no need to be fixed. Here, too, feel free to assimilate your personal preferences as well. This way, you can add a little of your personal touch to the retro concept you are interested in.

    And by the way, this encouragement not to be afraid to be a little 'independent' in your originality and design inspiration is relevant to each of our retro interior design tips.



    6. Lighting.


    Perhaps the most significant factor in retro design.

    Beautiful chandeliers, floor lamps, and various unique and old-fashioned lighting fixtures - In our humble opinion - are the 'bread and butter' for every retro-style home designer.

    Here, You can read more about retro lighting for your home.
