Keep reading for some style inspiration from the past 60 years, as well as some thoughts on how to keep the look updated!
50’s: BOLD PATTERNS
Think you can’t incorporate a bold pattern into your home in 2023? Think again! An accent wall using a bold wallpaper is still heavily in style. With patterns ranging from animals to plants and everything in between, there is sure to be a wallpaper that satisfies your desire to add a daring look to the rooms in your house!
60’s: BRIGHT COLORS
If you want to add a pop of color to your home, look no further than the furniture! With a piece like a bright yellow chair or a bold coffee table, you’ll bring life back into your favorite room in no time. Don’t be afraid to get a little crazy! If you love bright colors, you might want to try mixing and matching a few pieces to really create a statement.
70’s: NATURAL MATERIAL
Exposed brick and lofted wooden ceilings are incredibly popular right now and offer an updated feel to a 1970’s natural material look. Don’t have either of these things in your home? Look into installing a brick style tile to create the look and feel of an exposed wall without having to do any major reconstruction.
80’s: CERAMIC PIECES
Unlike the ceramics of the 80’s, today’s pieces focus on a neutral, and earthy look. By incorporating handmade and earth toned pieces in your home, you can have the feel of staple pieces from the past without committing to the unique and bold patterns that were popular way back when.
90’s: NATURAL FINISH CABINETS
Prefer to have more natural finishes throughout your home? Give your cabinets a wood finish for the perfect 90’s inspired look! Update the handles to keep the cabinetry looking just the right amount of modern.
00’s: RUSTIC FIREPLACE
Who doesn’t love a home with a gorgeous fireplace? If your house has one of these beautiful pieces, it’s time to make the most of it. Whitewashing your fireplace is on the way out, so be sure you’re capitalizing on the natural beauty of your fireplace by making it the center of attention in your home!
No matter where you draw your inspiration from, the way that you style your home is entirely reliant on your tastes and preferences. If you like the style of one decade over another, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t incorporate every aspect of it into your home decor! Mixing contemporary with styles of the past is the perfect way to keep your home feeling personalized and inviting, so don’t be afraid to mix it up with retro inspired decor and features!
