As the nights draw in again, it’s the perfect time to add a splash of colour to your home and bring some of the outdoors in. Inspired by mid 20th century design with a contemporary twist, our Modern Retro collection will add some zing to your home and refresh any living space.
Subtle retro floral print, modern typography and cute bird designs will create a stunning look that will last throughout the season and the whole year through.
Vibrant Blues and Greens
Whether you’re looking to completely refurbish your living space or just add in a few key items that will transform your existing look, vibrant colours that complement are a must. Our Modern Retro collection will help craft the look you desire with stand-out colour and style. Inject some life into your sofa with our Pom Pom Throw in teal, and complete the look with cushions in complementary colours to instantly transform your forever-loved cosy spot. To add an instant fresh vibe and make a real statement, choose our Relax cushion, which is exclusive to Wilko. Its subtle retro floral print paired with modern typography will instantly invigorate any setting and create a bold impression.
Retro Artwork that Makes a Statement
One of the quickest ways to make a room feel complete is to personalise your walls with statement artwork. Why not get creative and design a wall collage made up from a range of different pictures and photo frames in varying styles? Your friends and family will no doubt be begging for your interior design tips when they see how adventurous you’ve been. Our Modern Retro collection will instantly help to create a uniformed look for the collage whilst still keeping it diverse and quirky. For the ultimate quick and easy way to wake up your walls, make the Wilko Love Light Up Frame your focal point. Light up your loved ones centre stage in the way they deserve!
Who doesn’t love a good motto? With our range of funky and vibrant motto wall pieces, you can choose the one that best suits your household. For a real personal statement, add these to your collage wall to infuse some extra fun into your space. The contrasting materials and varying typography styles in the range will create the perfect visual experience for your living area. We love the Wilko Family Word Block and the Wilko Words Canvas for a classic pairing.
Top tip: For a real sense of continuity in your living space, spell out ‘love’ by adding our Love Tealight Holders to a sideboard, mantelpiece or table. It’ll perfectly complement the Love Light Up Frame and make for cosy nights in with your loved one.
Get Quirky and Bold with Modern Retro Wallpaper
Feature walls are an easy way to quickly add a fresh look to your living space without too much hassle. But this season, why not go all-out and follow this year’s biggest trend of wallpapering all four walls. With simple, statement prints such as Fresco New Leaf in white/teal, you really can’t go wrong… Be brave! Sticking to just a couple of core colours in accessories and styling, you can effortlessly avoid creating the ‘busy’ atmosphere that instils the fear factor when wallpapering more than one wall. If you’re hankering after a bold look but aren’t quite ready to take the leap to four-walled wallpaper, choose a bright and funky design such as Retro Leaf in teal/green, and be brave with the paint on the rest of your walls so as not to lose the focus of your statement wallpaper. Limeade or Neptune paint will provide the perfect accompaniment to the accent colours in this trend.
Top tip: Keep ceilings white and bright with Moonlight White paint to give this trend its maximum potential.
Complete the Look
No room is complete without a few key accessories to complement the tones and colour accents of your space. Add in our cute Wooden Birds to keep the quirky vibe flowing, and inject a touch of modern-chic with our Enamel Jug in cream.
Top tip: Make a centrepiece of your enamel jug by filling it with artificial flowers and white fairy lights.
