In 1985, the cult classic Back to the Future was released to the delight of sci-fi fans everywhere. And while there isn’t too much to be said about the film’s style (although puffer vests are a thing again and no one would say no to a ride in that iconic Delorean), there is something to be said about taking a cue from the modern style of our past.
The “mod” style of the 60’s is back and better than ever. Thankfully, there’s more ways to celebrate it than by just wearing mini skirts and Beatle boots.
You can bring cool, modern style into your home with fun decorative accents – like mirrors, throws, art, pillows and more.
What makes something “back to the future” cool? Here are three tips to love.
- Clean Lines. Mid-century modern homes are known for their clean lines and open, light feel. Unlike the “boho” look everyone has been gravitating to for years, cleaning off surfaces and adding bold, simple lines will give your home a fresh, updated look. White space, with one statement piece, is the key.
- Neutral Colors. Much of the mid-century modern look relies on using a neutral color palette. Think lots of earth tones and natural materials, like bamboo and wood paneling.
- Statement Pieces. A classic modern look uses smart, statement-making piece throughout. Rather than cluttering a space, designers use one or two visually interesting pieces and allow all of the focus to be directed that way.
Getting back to the future is a fun way to re-envision your house. And if you’re looking for a statement-making piece to kick off your efforts, our bamboo Back to the Future Mirror has everything you need to pull of the classic look.
