Retro kitchens and home decor trends are resurfacing in modern home design! [Although we know that they never really left]. Here are a few classic “comeback kids” of decades past. Which would you consider for your home?
Wood Paneling and Wallpaper
Wood paneling has been the nightmare of many homeowners and homebuyers. However, modern wood paneling has put an entirely new, contemporary spin on the trend. The simple switch from vertical to horizontal installation has made all the difference!
Remember your grandmother’s house phone with the seemingly endless, coiledphone cord? For that old sense of nostalgia, opt for a touch-tone, rotary-style phone for the kitchen. Not interested in the cord? There are cordless options as well as more contemporary styled models.
Wicker and Rattan Furniture
Outdoor living styles tend to spur from interior trends, but in the case of wicker and rattan furniture, they crept their way inside from the back patio door! Chair designs are limitless with these classic pieces, and are available in more modern styles as well.
What used to be a kitchen eyesore is now being used for kitchen glamour! Whether you prefer the subtle antiqued look or high-shine luxury, brass has made a resounding comeback in kitchen hardware.
Non-stainless Steel Appliances
For some reason, this trend resonates with us the most! For true retro authenticity, invest in vintage-style appliances with modern components. Our Northstar collection features kitchen appliances with 1950s curves and chrome accents in nine standard colors with custom colors upon request.
