Often retro design styles feature bold colors, intricate patterns and general design that is more over the top than understated. While this refreshingly rich look might not work with every living room and any given theme, it does feel organic and urbane when done right. Introduce a few classic chairs, a retro-styled table, and possibly a vintage decor piece or two to accentuate the retro look. A completely retro-inspired living room can be a touch overwhelming, but therein lays its beauty!

Retro-inspired interior design and living spaces have made a bit of comeback in the last year or so. With bold colors like purple and violet being touted as the hottest colors. As well as, gold and silver accents being featured in top interior design trends of the year ahead, now is the time to introduce a hint of retro charm into your living room. While most often modern homeowners seem to relegate vintage styles and retro patterns to the kitchen , it is time to think beyond the obvious. Furthermore, Chic and fashionable, simple retro decor can often make a big difference to the ambiance of any living space

At Santa Barbara Design Center we carry  a wide variety of side tables, cabinets and brilliant chandeliers, which are also a wonderful way of adding retro style to the living room. Just couple of these select furnishings with the right throw pillows and a rug, and you have playful, hip space that sets the right tone for the rest of the house. When it comes to colorful design, the ’60s and ’70s offer endless inspiration.
