Little Greene Wallpaper Retro WallpaperRetro wallpaper from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s has a vintage style all of it’s own. The retro theme has become very popular in recent years from fashion, art, video and decor.

Think geometric patterns, oranges and browns and quirky 50’s kitchen designs and you have retro wallpaper.

Groovy was the flavour of the day back then and  if you want to re create that era it couldn’t be easier than with wallpaper.

Retro isn’t for everyone but if you cringe at the minimalist look and are so over the neutral colour palettes with everything beige the quirky groovy retro style might be just what you’re looking for.

In today’s throw away society it might be worth re-evaluating what we already have, recycling and making use of family heirlooms.

Retro is definitely a style that is fun and has character. One persons retro style might differ enormously from someone elses but it’s easy to create with a few key pieces.

Upholstered furniture and modern danish furniture with tall tapered skinny legs is a good start. Lino flooring or as we would call it today vinyl flooring. Add fabrics with patterns based on scientific forms and geometrics. Lights that look a little like flying saucers fit in well. A colourful 60’s poster, a crocheted throw rug, a glass cake stand and a set of flying ducks on the wall all help with the retro theme. An old turntable and tin kitchen canisters are so kitschy but so retro.

Whilst retro is from an era gone by it is also a very individual choice today therefore there is no right or wrong way. The one thing that can really set a backdrop for this theme is retro wallpaper of course. With so many designs and colours to choose from it will be easy to choose the perfect paper for your retro look.
