New Nostalgia Interior design trend: How to achieve the look
New Nostalgia is about taking design inspiration from the past and translating it into a contemporary setting. Whether you are drawn to one particular style such as 1930s Art Deco, Mid Century design or 1950s Retro, or prefer to mix elements from different eras, the colours and materials you choose will help to consolidate your overall vision. For a modernised 70s vibe, I mixed mid-wood tones with accents of beige, charcoal and dark red with a touch of terrazzo. It may be a nod to the home or space’s history that you are renovating, such as restoring the ornate ceiling mouldings of a traditional Victorian villa and installing contemporary wooden flooring and tiling, or it may be modernising a specific room and decorating with vintage furniture. Choosing personal objects that tell a story will turn your house into a home with a soul. Layer in pieces from your travels, and those with which you have an emotional connection. Fuse times, places, cultures and styles to create a truly authentic look.
