Retro Modern Home Style That Has Feng Shui Built In!

Oct 20, 2014 | Home Style



The amazing thing about the Retro Modern, Mid Century and everything in the realm of vintage is that you can, with an eye toward simplicity, use key pieces to totally transform spaces.

Key words here to make the vintage feel and look fresh and alive to be feng shui-friendly: natural light, minimalism, geometric shelves, fresh plants & happy color.  


DIY honeycomb shelves above from A Beautiful Mess are arrestingly beautiful, yet very very Retro.

This bedroom is part Jetsons and part Room & Board.  The very easy pieces are stunning on opposition to the most elaborate, sculpture-like overhead lighting.

Light, plants, geometry and even the stachs of magazines don’t seem that bad.

A cluster of fresh plants, a very well edited display of “less is more” and natural light shining on a record player: how could you go wrong?

I want to put a retro clock in every single space I design!  Look at how the radiant geometry sort of sparks the space to life!  With such clarity, the details like a 60’s typewriter seem so fresh and new.

The beauty of the vintage: it has a history that links to you to culture to eras and to memories that infuse your own world with power. don’t hop on vintage trends.  Use only the vintage that inextricably pulls you into its story and shape and color.  But when you use it in these settings of minimal and magnificent, it will feel new and also richly unforgettable!   xoxo Dana
