Pops Of Color
Retro kitchen decor is known for bold pops of color, so if you want such a feel, incorporate orange, pink, red, yellow or blue. It may be an accent wall, a bold kitchen island, cabinets, bright stools and upholstery. Even colorful dinnerware, mugs and artworks are great for creating a retro ambience. Such an idea will not only give your kitchen a retro feel, it will also cheer up the space and raise your mood anytime you come in. You may combine various shades in one space, for example, go for teal and yellow, or mint and blue to make the space more eye-catching.
Another characteristic feature of a retro space is patterns. A pattern is a great idea to pull all the colors and shades together and add eye-catchiness to the space, and in the kitchen it’s a must have. You may go for one or two patterns and pair them with bold colors in your kitchen. It may be a tiled floor, a tile backsplash or upholstery, and if you don’t want to spend much money on that, go for printed textiles – curtains, rugs, towels and other stuff.
Make your dining space or a breakfast nook look like a retro diner – it will make your kitchen retro at once and will help you keep the decor style up. You may go for leather upholstered sofas and chairs of bold colors and with stripes, a round metal table or a rectangular one. The chairs can be also metal ones, actually, and you may continue the industrial feel with a marquee light sign and pendant lamps. Neon signs are also welcome, they bring that retro feel very easily.
