Best Retro Styles Updated

Updated on January 6, 2017

The Best Retro Styles

"Retro" is so much fun! Retro style is on it's way back with retro decor furniture and accessories, paint colors, bedding and even in the kitchen, clocks you name it. It depends on your birth year, what would be "retro" to your generation but retro is every where and so much fun! You can find retro styled kitchen appliances in those bold hippie colors and that Coca Cola red! It brings back fun memories for me and how I grew up as a kid. I remember those crazy oranges with brown every where kitchens in every body's house. We had a circle table that I just loved! It was my hiding spot because my Mother used it as a book table, nobody went in there but her. It was a good hiding spot for me!

If you look up the definition of retro style, this is what you will find: Retro is a culturally outdated or aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall postmodern past, that has since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again. The use of "retro" style iconography and imagery interjected into post-modern art, advertising, mass media, etc. It generally implies a vintage of at least 15 or 20 years.

I think of retro as a simpler time in life. We didn't have cell phones, notepads and computers. We would take off all day long on our bikes and go to the park. I really mean, all day. We used to come home starving and eat Our Mom's didn't call us every 10 seconds wanting to know where we were. People today never let their cell phones leave their hands, not when they are charging them or even on the toilet, they still answer that phone!

My Mom passed away April, 2015 at 85. My Dad is still here and he's going to be 88! We do a lot of things that take him back in time and he seems happy for a while. He tells his stories, yes, over and over. I don't care, I love him. He takes me back to the simpler time in life when everyone wasn't so busy, when I wasn't so busy.

So for me these retro items are not only memories but I think, a lot of fun.I gathered here a collection of the best retro styles I've found to date but I am always looking for more. I find all kinds of cool stuff that I like and want to share. I like my memories and life reminders of life a long the way.

Check this out! Great 3 section buffet and warming tray server is great for entertaining for any special event you might be hosting. It has three individual trays for different foods, with out mixing flavors and holds 2.5 quarts each. Each dish comes with easy lifting lids. I personally like the foods they have in the photo! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, I love eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. You could use this for any meal to keep it warm. I'm sure your brain is already processing what you could do with this mini buffet station. The warming tray has two cool-touch handles and four non-skid feet that offer stability and has three variable heat controls. The controls are a plus when you are serving cheese appetizers, the cheese won't burn on the bottom of the pan! All of this is a easy clean up too!

      I recently saw a photo of the cutest Jewish Menorah made from lava lamps. I'll have to find it again so I can pin it. Retro touches are very fun, especially those kitty clocks!
