During the 1970s, furniture began to lose its sleek quality and started to become a bit bulkier and chunky. Avocado greens, harvest golds, oranges and earthy browns dominated the color palettes of furniture and accompanying decor. As for the 1980s, that was when art deco heavily influenced the decorating style, as did South Western motifs. Country styles were also popular. Teal and mauve are two colors that were popular in most of the styles, which included patterns ranging from geometrics to florals. In a nutshell, even though these furniture and interior decor styles were diverse, they all fall under the umbrella of being retro style. Today, you'll see nods to a wide range retro styles in modern collections.
Furniture and its function. The first factor in deciding whether a piece of furniture stays or goes is its function. Ask yourself what furniture is needed – the different activities carried out in a particular room require specific furniture (beds for bedrooms, seating for a living room, etc.). Consider each person in your home – does one person love a cozy lounge chair? Do you need extra storage for all of your children's toys? After thinking about those basic questions, pay special attention to the following aspects. The basic furniture for every room. Each room or space of the house has specific uses and therefore needs specific furniture. These spaces are organized according to their activities: the dining room to eat, the living room to rest or as a meeting place, the bedroom to sleep, and so on. If you're starting to make your list of furniture, start by deciding what type of furniture you need depending on the room and thinking about alternatives.
With so much emphasis on sleek modern spaces, it's nice to enjoy a little extravagant inspiration from time to time. The two homes explored below share many features with neoclassical design, an elegant and intricate style that appeared in the mid-1700s and retained its popularity until the early 1800s. Neoclassicism arose in direct response to the perceived busyness and frivolity of the rococo style – making it the minimalism of its time. Neoclassicism was a revival of Greek Classicism, and interestingly enough, Art Deco was too – both styles share roots despite having opposite intentions. First, let's look at a space that takes an updated approach to the classic Louis XVI style, titled Chateau Margaux. It has a dark and comfortable theme yet avoids feeling imposing. In fact, the darker colors actually help the sophisticated space feel even more comfortable and intimate. It's a truly incredible take on neoclassical era design: not a reproduction but a very creative interpretation.
