Retro Touches for My New Home
As a child of the '60s/70's, I'm adding some retro touches to my new town home. As you look in down the foyer, the kitchen will be on the right and the family room will be on the left. The kitchen cabinets are white, with butterfly green granite, stainless appliances and gray walls and expresso hardwood floors throughout the first floor (it's spec, so I didn't get to pick any of that.
The attached photo shows the retro touches I'm putting into my family room. The starburst clock is bigger than the photo indicates; it will be above the wall-mounted flat screen TV, and the groovy green globe lamp will be by two sage green chairs, with the retro doorbell nearby. The couch will be across from them, by a large window with green curtains. I figured the pendant lights over the island would be something of subtle dividing line between the retro family room & modern kitchen.
Yes, I know it's tackier than hell, but that's what the '60s and '70s were all about. I'm going to poke around here to get some other ideas, but I thought it would be fun to share the pieces while I wait for the house to be done (looking like mid-to-late Aug. The globe lamp is vintage, but everything else is new.
