Retro ideas

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - ADVICE -

What you need to know be­fore styling your room with retroin­spired fur­ni­ture in a mod­ern way.

Choose one strik­ing piece of fur­ni­ture to be the hero piece in a room

Don’t in­clude more than two or three colours in the room

Only ever use one bold wall­pa­per de­sign

Ap­proach with cau­tion any­thing too “chaotic”, such as psy­che­delic wall­pa­per

Neu­tral colours are great when it comes to pe­riph­eral pieces in a room, but they won’t make a room “pop”

When buy­ing fur­ni­ture choose pieces that you have an emo­tional con­nec­tion to

Don’t buy safe, bland fur­ni­ture pieces be­cause you think they will be bet­ter choices in the long run. Most peo­ple change their fur­ni­ture ev­ery seven years

Tone down bright pieces with neu­tral cur­tains or car­pet
