This is a fun style where items from the 50's and 60's are combined to give the room a relaxed and very unique look. It is almost (actually it is like) going back in-time to a simpler era. It is also called Kitsch.
These 'trendy' items can be found in garage sales, flea markets and even on-line. They consist of chrome kitchen furniture, naugahyde and vinyl fabrics and plastic clocks and accessories.
The color themes would depend on the colors of the items in the room, but don't let the colors clash or overpower the furniture. If you want your furniture to stand out use white or off-white on the walls.
