Five Cool Retro Trends For 2018

It seems like every year, some fashion from yesterday makes a comeback, slightly revamped and revitalized. So what retro trends will be making their way into your living room in 2018?

LOTS OF FRAMED ART WORKS

Not that long ago, having a wall cluttered with picture frames was seen as a bit passé.

With rampant minimalism running unchecked our homes for the last few years, walls have become desolate places, bereft of personality. For too long they have been just acres of white or beige colored space.

That could be set to change in 2018. This could be the year for friends and family to make a reappearance in our homes. Personal portraits and family snaps, all symmetrically placed in a neat order, on our walls, can once again hang freely!

It will make a nice change from all that white, we think!

GOLD AND GREEN

Remember the seventies? Well, from a décor point of view no one could forget it, although perhaps they wish they could do.

What if some of it could be resurrected, albeit without the bad taste and acres of brown?

Avocado green is one shade that is set to make a comeback, paired up with gold. No, really, it doesn’t have to be that bad the second time around and there really are ways of doing it tastefully and subtly. Two words which were sadly lacking from the original version!

MONOCHROME DESIGN

Turn your home into a zebra crossing you say? Well, not exactly – but the never-out-of-fashion combination of black and white, is set to make it back into fashion for 2018.

The beauty of this look is its’ timelessness and the ease with which you can recreate this design at home. Without having to spend a lot of money, you can bring black and white into your rooms, just at a flick of a paintbrush.

GIGANTIC FURNITURE

2018 could be the year for ‘going large’. So if you needed any excuse to splash the cash on that super-sized corner sofa, then now you’ve got it.

Four seaters, five seaters, six seaters. If you can physically get it in through the door, then it’s fair game.

And it’s not just the couches which are turning into giants. Your epic furniture could be represented by a large dining table or other center piece.

This doesn’t mean that you should still be trying to cram a lot of large pieces into a small room. But think carefully about which bigger item it is that you want at the heart of your living room.
