The retro style definition is used to artifacts and products that consciously recall motifs, materials, attitudes and techniques of the past, in particular of a recent past that is no longer perceived as modern, with a sense of longing that never becomes nostalgia: it's more of a desire for things of a recent past that have a special stylish aura.
The retro wallpaper collection created by Wallpaper from the 70s represents a signature for the brand: designs and materials are inspired by the 1970s imagery: shapes and colours, textures and patterns are influenced by the mood of the decade, a decade of transformation in several aspects of Western culture, from arts to music, from fashion to design.
Wall décor is a distinctive trait of interior design, capable of defining the personality of a home: the choice of a retro wallpaper solution reflects a positive attitude, a willingness to enjoy each space to the fullest, in total comfort and with style.
Let's explore Wallpaper from the 70s' retro collection to better understand why the fascination with vintage designs, colours and patterns never ceases to amaze.
The orange, turquoise, yellow and grey dots of the Almeda retro wallpaper seem to form a sequence of necklaces hanging from the ceiling.
The patterns of Apollo represent an icon of the 1970s' imagery: sequences of large circles in psychedelic colours remind the atmospheres of clubs and music playing loud, with exuberance and joy.
Threes become stylised shapes, almost a pure form made out of colour hues recalling the patterns of fallen leaves in autumn.
A sort of honeycomb is formed by the hexagons arrangement, with the nuances of grey and turquoise seemingly opening the wall to unexpected depths. An elegant pattern that makes this wallpaper a very sophisticated choice.
Giant white flowers are organised into a very meticulous pattern, with the red dots bringing a note of colour into this wallpaper, created by the designer Orla Kiely.

An iconic vintage pattern, formed by sequences of geometric shapes repeating hypnotically all over this wallpaper brings us back directly to the 1970s.

The Scandinavian inspiration of the geometric shapes defining this wallpaper is merged with bright colours, ironically expressing a retro reinterpretation of classic nordic patterns.
This non-woven retro wallpaper is strongly characterised by the intense colour palette and the repetition of curved shapes, a combination that generates a dreamy and intimate mood.
