retro classic

If you are enchanted by palace decorations and series that take place during the Regency era, then classic retro is the style that best suits you.

The style is composed of Provençal pieces, done in muted tones, however, with a touch of gold and well-crafted furniture.

The floral wallpapers – however in light and delicate colors – as well as the medallion chair, are details that underline the classic retro flavor of the environment, so bet on them to compose your living room without fear.

If you want to invest in modern colors in a classic retro decor, invest in greens, shades of blue (reminiscent of royalty), and caramel.

modern retro

When it comes to retro style, the first thing everyone remembers is the 50s to 80s inspired decor, made up of vibrant color palettes, more linear design furniture and bold compositions mixing prints and textures.

This is a style highly sought after by those who love creative and colorful environments, as if it were a set of period soap operas.

To ensure a retro-modern atmosphere in your decoration, you need to invest in 2 details:

  1. Colorful and lively furniture (yellow, purple, blue, orange… don’t be afraid to innovate in your choice of colours);
  2. Organic textures and furniturelike rounded sofas and oval mirrors;

old money

Have you ever heard of the term “Old Money”? It’s a design inspired by high-income families in the United States who still maintain a sophisticated lifestyle.

This style is very famous in the fashion world, but it has also gained a place in classic decoration through retro furniture in light tones (lots of beige, white and blue). It is very similar to classic retro, but the difference is in the choice of luxurious pieces. Instead of Provençal furniture, old money presents vintage pieces signed by great designers and softer compositions. Luxury is in the details.

retro glamour

Finally, we have Retro Glam.

We like to say that retro glam is basically “retro modern revamped.” It has retro features, but done in a much more modern and current way.

That is, the color palettes are more harmonious and sophisticated. Metallic tones, such as gold and rose gold, are used in the right measure and always accompanied by more gray tones, such as blush pink or sage green (fashion colors).

It is a much more glamorous and sophisticated decoration, but with modern and charming pieces.
