Finally, the word retro has also been thrown into the mix. Retro is a bit more easy to define, as the vast majority of people believe and accept that this particular term applies to items made during the 1950s. Though some believe that it refers to items that are between 50 and 99 years old, for example: it may also apply to items that are Art Deco in style, (which was during the 1930s). Examples of retro furniture include mid century modern furniture and home decor. The truth is, unless there are papers or some other form of verification such as personal knowledge and a maker mark, it can be difficult to know exactly when an item was manufactured unless you are looking for a specific item that you have thoroughly researched. Even still, it easy to be fooled. Look for reputable dealers, especially when looking for furniture or legitimate artwork and other wall decor pieces, as you don want to pay big bucks for a big fake. If youre ever unsure, get in touch with a professional to come and evaluate the validity of the piece before you purchase.
Before hanging any art on a wall, try different combinations of arrangements. Use painters tape and brown paper bags and keep rearranging the bits of paper on the wall until you have come up with a great picture arrangement. Always hang prints at eye level and use your hand in between pictures as a guide to space large and medium sized pictures. Mirrors are great to help create the illusion of space. By cleverly placing mirrors on an adjacent wall to a picture or something which is interesting in your room, will reflect the image and add a sense of space. For darker rooms, hang a decorative mirror near a window. The light will then bounce off the mirror into the room portraying more natural much-needed light back into the area.
If you dont know what home decor style youre most drawn to, you cant even begin to decorate your space. This applies to both men and women.

Print out pictures of rooms that you feel particularly drawn to and eventually, youll figure out what styles of home decorations youre most drawn to. Interior design styles include popular styles such as contemporary, modern, traditional; as well as lesser-known styles including steampunk, mid-century modern or shabby chic.
