Interior   Bright colors, bright moods

Every era brings new trends in interior design and some of them are easily recognized as "retro" or "outdated". But, if we choose colors carefully, we may enjoy a modern retro space.

Colorful appliancesColorful appliances have this retro feel to them, which is why they have a tendency to slowly but surely faded into the outdated pile. However, that's as far from the truth as it can be. They are back and better than ever, and in fact if you love colors they never really went out of the trend. This trend is back due to homeowners wanting a more colorful addition to their home and adding colorful appliances and fixtures does just that. So, if you like 1960s or 1970s or just bright colors, colorful appliances are the way to go.

Red living roomNeutral colors are always "in" because they go easily with any other color, but bright hues could be making a bold comeback. In fact, bright colors are expected to be seen all around the home in areas that need that modern touch in a sensible manner. Of course, you go with a bit less "sensible" manner and let your soul sing in color, especially red. Don't worry, it won't be too much if you dress almost everything in your living room in red: left just the floor and the ceiling in a neutral color and you'll be fine.

Green roomOn the opposite side of red is green, at least if you want a colorful living room but red is too much for you after the long working day. It's so easy to say that green is too much retro but those who say that don't think about nature where everything around you is green - and it calms you down. So, greens are making a comeback because of their natural feel and they can easily show the homeowner’s personality while still being less dramatic then some other vivid and bright colors.

Retro roomAnd for the end, the combination of all we wrote about above. If you are lucky enough to have a large living room, the recipe is: a big green feature wall, natural wood on the floor, right red details and smaller pieces of furniture, and large brown sofa. It may seem as something from wild 1970s but trust us that color combination works extremely well. Don't overdo it with many plant and small details, just go big and bold and you'll get a retro room that will not be retro ever again.
