The 50s in the US were the golden era of television, the debut of Elvis Presley as well as the rise of… advertising. Many of you would likely be able to recognise the characteristic art style of adverts from this period. The style had a unique charm that contributed to its recent comeback. We also found a lot of inspiration in this original aesthetic, which is why we used it to design our beautiful retro furniture stickers. They feature many iconic characters of the 50s and 60s. You’ll definitely appreciate these decorations in your room if you’re a fan of the King of Rock ‘n Roll but you can also use them do beautify your kitchen. After all, these types of designs were initially used to advertise grocery products. This can be a wonderful opportunity to decorate a fridge. A retro-style kitchen is a fantastic first step to introduce the aesthetic in the entire home.
When it comes to nostalgia and longing for the good old days, music plays an important role. We’re all able to name famous bands and musicians of the last century, who defined the direction in which music would develop. You can express your love for music by decorating your home with posters depicting album covers or musicians themselves but today we’d like to show you an alternative, more subtle solution – vintage stickers with instruments. This idea does not limit you to a single band or genre. It allows you to display your love for retro music as a whole. Within one design you can contain all those excellent songs that we all know by heart. These universal vintage sticker designs can also feature other musical symbols and motifs. Nothing conveys the atmosphere of retro music like a vinyl disc or a forgotten cassette tape. You can even design your own musical corner by decorating walls around a cabinet with your CD collection or stereo equipment. The design works wonders in the living room, bedroom or even kitchen, e.g. as a fridge decoration. Every interior in your home can be filled with retro music!
So far we’ve focused on graphic designs that capture the character of the past. This, however, is only one of several available options. Another interesting idea is using vintage stickers featuring stylised photographs, which look just as if they were taken several decades ago. This effect is mostly achieved through masterful use of colour. The original, pastel, slightly faded colour schemes instantly suggest the passage of time. One of the most common themes for these types of stickers are female figures dressed in outfits from various decades of the 20th century. The subtle references to the pin-up girl trend, which was most popular right around the 50s, adds to the retro-feel of the designs.
