Retro Trends Making A Comeback
In the same way that fashion is cyclical, home decor trends come, go, and come again. Who could have guessed that in the year 2021, decor trends from the '50s-'80s would make such a notable comeback decades later. Whether it is due to a lack of creative ideas or just a craving for old taste, the fact is that retro trends are making a massive comeback.
Until recently, wallpapers were hardly seen in interior design after the '80s. Many different styles of wallpapers were seen as dated and odd once the early to mid-'90s began, however now in 2021 we are seeing the more retro styles of wallpapers making a comeback. The different geometric patterns and colors add dimension and give off a fresh and modern look to a home. If you're looking to incorporate texture into your home, wallpaper is a great option! If you've seen an accent wall in someone's home or maybe online, you can actually use wallpaper for the accent wall. It will add a sense of drama and attractiveness to the room that may not have been there before. Embrace your inner retro-ness!
