Retro Chic…Repurposing

30 Jul

We spent Saturday with my niece who has just moved into a new apartment and is preparing to begin her Masters program, so of course we wanted to be there to help do some of the ‘finishing touches’ and decorate.  Her Mom was also there to lend support and guidance!  Of course we had to make sure we weren’t taking over with the decorating bit since it is her own place and she definitely has her own style!  We must be careful not to overstep boundaries, right!  She is going for a retro chic look, very hip indeed.  She’s using a lot of red and black with a little bit of yellow accent mixed in.  She found an old turntable stereo which she fell in love with and it is being used to play a lot of Bob Dylan!  Yes very retro indeed!  A friend of hers made a very unique clock for her out of an old vinyl album – just loved it!  The apartment is a darling  little loft studio very close to campus.  My niece selected a bright red sofa as the focal point of her living room and then based the rest of the theme around that.  She and my sister were here two weeks ago and we went to the antiques store looking for old rake heads.  Her plans were to use the rake heads as a wine glass rack.  The idea was so creative I had to share it with you on my blog.  I just think it’s fantastic and what a way to repurpose in a very chic and retro way!  One rake head ended up being a great place to store necklaces and bracelets.  Check out what she did here and I know you’ll love this great idea.
