Steely gray can help create an intimate décor for the living room. You can paint the walls gray and if you want to go even further you can also paint the ceilings and the floor the same color. It would be like a gray canvas that you can then complete with all sorts of little decorations and details. If you want to add some fun and vibrant color accents you can always use the drapes, the rug, the lamps, the pendant, the pillows or the artwork.
Many home furnishings companies have reproduction lines that recreate the nostalgic and retro looks that we all love. If you decide to use authentic period furniture from garage sales, hand-me-downs or from vintage stores, ensure you are safe when painting, refinishing, or changing the look of old furniture. Especially children’s furnishings can have lead based paint, toxic varnishes and also can have safeguards that are not in place as modern children’s furniture. Keep this in mind if you’re refinishing old furniture or plan to buy children’s cribs, changing tables and other adolescent furniture.
Whether you love the retro metal arc floor lamp with the big lampshade that was popular in the 1970’s gracing everyone’s living room or you prefer the introduction of aluminum into wall and pendant fixtures of the late 1960’s – lighting was an integral part of retro furniture decor. Look to your favorite lighting manufacturers for lighting reproductions for your ceiling, walls, floor in every retro style imaginable.
