Now that the 2018 New Year has rolled in, it’s time to talk about this year’s best décor trends relating to Mid-Century Modern styling. Top colors, lighting, bedroom settings and choices for the walls round out the best of the best for the year. Here are unique Retro Knox items in-stock at retail locations around Downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.         

Violets and Purples

It’s official, Pantone came out with Ultra Violet as their official color of 2018. Violets and purples are bold and soft – depending on what they are paired with. Choose comfort with soft velvet during the winter. Make it of this hue and any room will feel cozy and warm as the snow and temperatures continue to fall.

Vintage Lighting

This could mean anything, but big and dramatic lighting is best. Floor lighting that makes a statement like this standalone lantern will beautify the right space.

Neutral Bedrooms

Keeping it simple in the bedroom is the theme for 2018. A four-piece set like this one would mix really well with a modern bed. See the  design gallery  of ideas to learn how to mix and match today and yesteryear.
