5 Retro Home Trends That are Making a Comeback
They say what goes around comes around especially when it comes to trends. According to Southern Living, these five old home trends are set to make a big comeback over the next year.
Art Deco Style
The Great Gatsby would be proud to see the velvet side chairs and chaises and geometric patterns of his era returning to the spotlight. Many homeowners are tired of the sleek, minimalist trends that dominated the last decade and as we dive into the Roaring 20’s 2.0, we can expect to see more trends from the original Roaring 20’s making their way into this generation’s homes.
Natural Textiles like Rattan, Wicker, and Bamboo
Okay, so here in the South, these tried-and-true materials never really go out of style but SL claims the rest of the country is getting on board with wicker furniture, rattan baskets, and bamboo tables. We always knew we had the best styles in the South but we’re glad the rest of the nation is finally appreciating them, too.
Again, today’s homeowners have grown tired of the modern minimalist look and are heading in the opposite direction to fill their kitchens with appliances. From colorful vintage refrigerators to replicas of antique stoves, homeowners are embracing the oldies but goodies. We predict the Hoover cabinet will make a comeback before this trend is said and done.
The Return of the ’70s
Remember the popular greens, tans, and yellow shades of the ’70s? Well, those are just a few of the colors returning to homes as homeowners kick the neutrals of the 2010s to the curb. But we beg you, don’t go overboard with repainting every room. Start with painting the dining room or powder room and be sure to consult a paint expert to pick shades that complement the other colors of your home.
Chrome is the New Black
In keeping with the art deco trend, chrome is quickly replacing black and brass as the choice accent metal. For the kitchen, think of adding a 50’s diner appeal with chrome bases for stools or replacing your current hardware with chrome for an instant update.
