Retro Interior Design

Retro designs are not anything that’s old. More commonly used to refer to interior decor inspired by the 1950s to 1970s, retro interiors often feature psychedelic patterns and colours. These designs came with the hippy movement and today, inject homes with sense of nostalgia and eclecticism. And just like those free, bohemian times, a retro style takes an individual who’s willing to go bold and funky.

You'll love it if...

You like to go back home in a big way! This free-spirited and quirky style is more forgiving when it comes to styling up your place. Go for bright bold colours or playful patterns and paired with ghost furniture for that nostalgic charm, or add that subtle charm with retro decor ornaments such as rugs and wallpapers.

How To Work It…

Take notes from your grandma’s house or the shophouses around! Give your home some major retro vibes with those popular interior features back in the day - like Formica countertops, Terrazzo or Peranakan tiled flooring, and a splash of colour. Furnishings wise - sixties favourites, like bubble chairs, curved sofas and huge metallic pendant lights work. Of course, we are also seeing a revival in gorgeous retro styled appliances, from iconic Smeg refrigerators, to KitchenAid mixers.
