It’s National Retro Day!

It’s time to rewind… and celebrate National Retro Day! Pop the vinyl on the hi-fi, slip on those saddle shoes, or send a letter with a stamp. We’re all here for yesteryear, and that means we’re putting the spotlight on home decor with retro touches. These wall sculptures and furnishings have a throwback mid-century style mixed with modern-day elegance. 

To set your own retro vibe, seek out furnishings with hairpin legs, tapered feet, or rounded geometric shapes. An openwork oblong console table or a Scandinavian credenza can instantly set the mood. When it comes to the walls, you can’t go wrong with atomic-age art, a boomerang clock, or sunburst decor. Minimalist pendant lighting, mod rugs, and statement table lamps all make fun complements.

Get Nostalgic with Mid-Century Modern Home Decor

Whether your style is all-out retro or transitional with touches of the past, mid-century home decor is for you! According to Architectural Digest, the movement blossomed from early 20th century Modernism; characteristics of mid-century decor include simplicity of design, organic shapes, and emphasis on function.

You might be wondering how to incorporate this style into your home. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Display an abstract metal wall sculpture with rounded, mod shapes.
  • Swap out traditional magazine racks or accent tables for sleeker styles.
  • Place a geometric area rug on the floor as a statement piece.
  • Update an entertainment center with chic furniture in light or warm finishes.
