Retro Pictures as Interior Décor

Sunday, 17 July 2011

Retro PicturesEveryone who is once involved in interior design is willing to have the special place with special atmosphere. Lots of techniques and approaches are offered to make the place attractive and exclusive and retro-picture approach is one among many others. Should you have no idea of retro-picture using as interior décor, the only thing to do about this approach it to hang all of your black-and-white pictures from photo-albums in wooden or plastic frames to walls. And this is not the point.

As psychologist state the interior of your house is what reflects the core of human inner world. That’s it but when people come home after long working hours they feel like relaxing. And selection of black-and-white pictures is a good challenge to use.

Family pictures is the best selection to win. The pictures with kids, dolls and teddy bears and the ones with family happy events make positive impression and evokes positive emotions. Yet, pictures of grandmothers and grandfathers who sit gloomily waiting for the session end or the family pictures when after the long and tired day you look exhausted are not good to choose. And surely, strangers in family pictures should be avoided. When you feel devoted, you are free to use pictures of outstanding scientists or favorite artists.

Nature and architecture in pictures are good to look at while architectural pictures can successfully change the place dimensions.

Hobby pictures. The pictures that demonstrate the aspirations and likings as airplanes, cars, space, landscape, various items and the best interior design styles. For instance, the image of the French model of De Dion Bouton 1902 car adds more charm to the moderate and trivial interiour design. The stringent classic interior style is well diluted with the image of Eiffel tower.

The best and easiest way is to get many ready-for-use frames. As alternative, special wooden or plastic frames can be ordered at the framing shop in the same style to emphasize the interior design, though different in size and shape. Vintage bulky frames are the best for classic interior, however family pictures for home retrospective require simple frames coated with glaze or passe-partout.

The passe-partout is the good option to replace wooden, plastic or aluminum frames. It is made from paper and can be released in various texture, from standard flat or corrugated cardboard  to velvet and gilding. The craftsmen at the framing shop offer a wide range of colors, texture and style of the passe-partout suitable for your interior style. When passe-partout is made at home, one should bear in mind that the basic canvas should be a little bit larger in size than the picture. The point is that any chosen material is used to make the frame to set out or emphasize the picture itself, and that’s it. As for the inner contour of the passe-partout, it offers much to fancy and experiment like carving heart-shaped or opt for any other shapes.

So, the pictures are done and trimmed and the question is there to place all of them in proper places. The walls is the best. The wall surface should be even and, to the best effect, to match the retro-pictures and frames in color. Black-and-white pictures helpfully shade wallpapers of vivid color and tender pastel. So, interior designers readily refer to retro-canvas to decorate boutiques and restaurants which creates the intense background for the items for sale. On the top of it, it creates the appropriate atmosphere. Nevertheless, black-and-white pictures used in black-and-white interior can look ridiculously and distort the perception of the design unless made and done by professionals.

When pictures are placed on walls, double-sided adhesive tape or thermal glue is the best option to avoid destroying the walls. As an option, the pictures can be placed on various shelves, styled as the picture frame or specially designed for particular pictures, something like the pedestal. Though, conventional shelves are also suitable but the pictures should match the books or other items placed there.

The retro-picture that you love and willing to look at every time can be placed at the room door, sliding-cupboard and even the lampshade. When you come to this idea, you don’t need to have your picture sized as the carpet, trim it with ultra-fashionable frame, drill cupboards or fix to match the lamp. The special framing shops make special photo-wallpapers to decorate doors or create the unique image of you on the wall.

Verena Lang, the designer for the Australian Ivydesign, offered the special and unique application for the trivial dinner table. She used it as the frame for her picture and the designed project was called Picture table. This is the modular table which is attached to the wall by one side to have a meal and the second position offers to lift it up with folded legs to fix to the vertical surface. So, the picture? It is on the reverse side of the table top. As an alternative, Verena Lang offered to place a mirror in the frame.

The Google Corporation launched the online service for designers and those who like experimenting called Historypin. The core of this service is that anyone is alloed to upload their own retro picture or the image of streets, landscape and get the picture online. When the black-and-white picture is put over the color picture the collage acquired may be used as a unique tool for further online activity.
