Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Sometimes you only need to change one thing in a room to change it completely into a new style. Wallpaper is one of those things. You can add wallpaper to one wall in a room to change the entire mood.

Lately, I have been writing about decorating in retro. One of the easiest ways to change your kitchen, bathroom or living room into a retro style room is by adding one of these retro designed wallpapers to one accent wall. These wallpapers are a hoot! For most rooms, it would only take one day to put the paper up, then you could see the results immediately.

The wallpaper featured above is a good example. York Wallcoverings KB8525 Bistro 750 Retro Leaves Prepasted Wallpaper comes in five different color combinations that can be used with almost any color scheme. It is a 50's style design which would go great in a kitchen, entry or bathroom. You don't have to want a retro look to use it, but it certainly can be used for that purpose.

Another use for a retro wallpaper, or actually any patterned design is to create wall art from it. You can see this done here with this Wall In A Box WIB1012 Retro Dots Wallpaper, Silver Metallic, Scarlet Red, Gloss Black, Steel Gray. This is a very cool look that can be easily done by hand at home. Just place the wallpaper over a frame or on top of an existing artist canvas. Staple it to the back, and hang. In this picture, the paper has been put on four canvases and placed in a 2 x 2 pattern. The dot geometric design is juxtaposed with the squareness of the canvases.

This is a wonderful wall accent for a den, living room, dining room or bedroom. It can also be used in a hallway or entryway. This is a particularly good idea if you rent the space you are living in, so you don't need to replace the wallpaper. Just remove the nail you are hanging the frame with.

Retro Signs for Home Decor

One of the easiest ways to change the decor of any room is to change the accessories and wall art. Sometimes just changing the wall art alone can do the job.

For instance, if you want to change your bathroom from a modern look to a retro look, removing the modern artwork and replacing it with retro signs like the one pictured here, Mermaid Bath Salts, is a fast and easy way to do so.

This type of sign has a retro image and is painted on a metal sheet just like signs used to be years ago. If you are worried about dampness rusting the sign, you can spray paint it with a clear Krylon spray paint. Clear Krylon comes in a can and is easily applied to any metal surface. It also works to protect the finish of metal jewelry.
