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.
Make sure that the items you are using fit into their new homes scale... you dont want one tiny paperweight on a large kitchen table, and you want to steer clear of using a huge ceiling high arrangement of flowers on a tiny end table. Most people tend to use things that are too small for their surroundings however. If you have small accessories you would like to display, but need to give them more oomph in the arrangement, try grouping them on a plate or a fabric covered box. You can also give them height by perching them atop stacked books or baskets.

Design of the curtain shelf bracket attracts attention, from use of plain bracket or one with a catchy silhouette. The bracket is 5 ½" deep to accommodate the wood shelf, and 7 ½" in height. At the bottom of the bracket is a decorative hook to simply cradle the wrought iron curtain rod. An important consideration pertains to available silhouettes. The ultimate clearance from shelf bottom to the curtain rod may be a limiter for any silhouettes desired on the curtain rod. Consider this: The shelf bracket is available with many of our common silhouettes. Most silhouettes add 3" to the height of the bracket. Move the silhouette theme from the curtain rod to the shelf bracket. Many iron curtain rod designs are available that well compliment the curtain shelf bracket. These range from the Ball, Remington or Curl, and are available in four adjustable lengths for any home decorating requirement.
