4 Retro Photo Pegs That Will Take You Back In Time

Take a trip down memory lane with these design ideas


Whether you've lived through the 70s or just someone who loves Mad Men, we can't say we're surprised that you are inspired by all things retro. After all, the yesteryears were a lively time for mid-century design and pieces that were one-of-a-kind. If you're looking to give your home the same edgy vibe, we've rounded up four design ideas you can try:

Homes in the 70s used a lot of rusty orange, blue green, and mustard yellow hues, so don't be afraid of delving into in-between colors, too. Give your breakfast nook an extra vintage boost by using decor pieces reminiscent of an American diner. 

If you aren't a fan of out-of-this-world shades, you can also make pastel colors work. If you're aiming for a homey vibe, the kitchen is the pefect spot to experiment with these charming hues. 

The easiest way to achieve a retro-inspired space is to decorate with vintage-inspired movie posters. Not only will you have a reminder of your favorite love story whenever you pass by the hall, it can act as a great conversation piece for visitors, too. 

If movie posters aren't adventurous enough for you, a more daring idea would be to fill your home with fun and quirky furniture pieces. Don't hestitate to mix styles and textures for an eclectic aesthetic—in this case, more is more.
