It is not only about recalling a long-lost past time, but about using again the furniture and items, giving them a new life, because they necessary in your home interior and also functional while preserving their original design.

Don’t be afraid to combine colors

Colors play the most important role in decorating your home interior in a vintage, retro style. For example, you can combine a vintage pink sofa with white modern or also vintage elements for a bright atmosphere full of freshness.

You can also choose to apply different pastel shades to the walls and place vintage chairs with old lamps for great and mesmerizing lighting.

Textured wallpaper with vintage patterns on the walls in a wide range of colors is another unique and cute idea to give a retro touch to your decor.

Vintage living room furniture

Heavy textured and thick fabrics with classic and retro-style patterns are ideal for upholstering a vintage living room furniture. Just think about armchairs with leather upholstery that will turn your living room into an exquisite home interior.

Of course, the wooden decorative elements can never be missing in this kind of decoration. Aged wooden boxes arranged in dim lighted room corners are a valuable decorative accessory.

Cushions and curtains should be mixed and combined with all the furniture in floral designs or patterns from an old Golden age.
