To bring retro cool into 2012 blend the bright with the plain..
A white or cream wall will bounce the pattern & colour that you do add, around the space. If you dare to, then hang retro paper on a feature wall and tie in the same colours with a cushion or two, a simple & bright vase, or candlestick.
Choose a palette of oranges, greens, browns or purples...true sixties and seventies shades. Swirls, squares or flower power, it's all about pattern, the bigger and brighter, the better...be brave.
This is a fun look to bring to life... Delve into Junk shops and charity shops or scour the auctions online for that old retro vase, candlestick or figurine... old flower power curtains can soon be whipped into a cushion cover that will give you a true vintage original.
Be bright, be bold...feel the vibe!
