Retro Revival by Lifestyle Design
We all have those antique and heirloom pieces that we just cannot bear to part with. Clients routinely face the inner battle of
To-Keep or Not-To-Keep…
So when we started our Highland Drive Project, we knew there was quite a bit of ‘filtering’ to do. As we have said before, it is vital that the look remains cohesive; however, don’t feel forced to use every piece within one room or reuse them in the same manner in which you are accustomed.
Whether it is an Idea Board or simply a Project Vision, Lime & Kelly Green are not colors we typically find ourselves drawn to. Unexpectedly, the moment we saw this retro style Dining Table and Chairs… we were obsessed. Chrome legs hold a diamond burst, Lime Green Tabletop with Kelly Green border; matching chairs are adorned with bullnose accent and ornate, chrome handles.
→ Chrome is susceptible to weather conditions and especially time, if stored. When you find rusty spots or entire areas where chrome should be, use tin foil to remove the tarnish! Simply tear a piece off, and start rubbing; as always, test a small spot in a discrete location. It might take a little elbow grease…. but you’ll have that sparkle and shine back in no time!
Although the room as a whole is nontraditional in nature, we found classic pieces that effortlessly complimented our eclectic vibe. Pair of uniquely patterned duck serves as a conversation piece atop the table. A beautifully preserved Buffet anchors a custom painted canvas. Five, cobalt blue goblets; matching Salt and Pepper Shakers; and a mini Corvette rest beside an ornate, gold lamp.
