The essential thing to avoid making mistakes consists precisely in the meticulous choice of furnishings, floors, finishes, colors, materials and details in order to recreate the style and atmosphere of the chosen era. The result is a real leap in time, to ensure that anyone who enters your home is like catapulted onto the set of a movie from the past. If you are always looking for new furnishing ideas, take note of the latest retro trends for the 2021 home, according to professionals Engel & Volkers Treviso.
