Scrunchies, flared pants, shoulder pads in blazers,  you name it and it’s all coming back! Just like fashion, interior design is influenced by comebacks in styling too. Cue the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s with a modern twist with 2019’s Retro look. Retro interior design is an eclectic mix of unique pieces of decor, colour and texture. This is a kaleidoscope of contrasting design features, colours, shapes and forms. We’ve featured some of our favourite Retro inspired rooms, featuring the perfect window furnishings.

The Modern Retro kitchen

This chic, modern retro kitchen, has a gorgeous pastel colour palette which encapsulates the very essence of the 50’s and 60’s era. Combine this with modern pieces of furniture in various textures and neutral tones, pastel coloured appliances and simple table decor, to really enhance the modern look and feel in a home today. The perfect window furnishings to frame this work of art, are simple white drapes, to let natural light flow through here.
