What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kailey J. Flynn Photography added this to My Houzz: Retro Modern in East Austin
The focal piece of the living room is an oversized vintage "cafe" sign Ford found on the side of Route 66. The cactus also speaks to much of her décor's desert origins. Yellow cabinet: Texas Surplus Red coffee tables: Crate and Barrel
This is a living room that makes you take notice, and the golden yellow large file cabinet makes a great console. If you don't have a separate space for your office, integrating organizational pieces like this into other rooms is a great way to stay uncluttered. This cabinet is just the right height for a television. Tour the rest of this retro modern home
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Eclectic
Style Secret: RepetitionVisual echoes, from color to shape to finish, help an eclectic room find its rhythm. Look closely: This living area is essentially a series of rectangles, from the windows and the framed artwork to the coffee tables and vintage café sign. And the accent pieces reiterate the brilliant yellow of the room's focal-point chest.Road-test it: Choose a few fundamental pieces to anchor your space, and survey the architecture as well. Then consider which elements you can repeat. Do you have a big, round ottoman paired with Eileen Gray side tables? Pull the circle motif into the room: a round mirror, a vintage schoolhouse wall clock, a collection of straw orbs. Throw in a few contrasting shapes for balance and you'll spark an engaging mix.
Laura Fenton added this to The Indoor Gardener: Crazy for Cacti
An unusual draping cactus adds to the eclectic mix in this modern living room. Its green flesh is similar to that of the vintage cafe sign behind it.
Samantha Schoech added this to Design Inspiration: Tropical Mexico
The literal decorative translation would be to use an old sign as part of your decor. This weathered beauty looks perfect hanging out with its modern friends.
In an eclectic space where nothing matches, would you expect to find a piece of art mounted precisely over the middle of a chest? Of course not. Scooting it just a smidge to the left yields a pleasing graduated-height effect. This is a lot like what I did in my living room — though my lamp is nowhere near as cool as that lava version.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Antique Store Finds to Nab Now, Place Later
Vintage commercial signs. Vintage signs large and small can be placed in rooms for an eclectic touch that adds whimsy and nostalgia to a space. Large ones can can be propped up in a corner, and smaller ones can be mounted just about anywhere. Try mixing in smaller signs with a photo collage on a wall or over a bed.

Trick!! -snap a pic of your space and study it. what shouts at you? winnow out any discordant elements & try again! This living area is essentially a series of rectangles, from the windows and the framed artwork to the coffee tables and vintage café sign. And the accent pieces reiterate the brilliant yellow of the room's focal-point chest. Road-test it: Choose a few fundamental pieces to anchor your space, and survey the architecture as well. Then consider which elements you can repeat. Do you have a big, round ottoman paired with Eileen Gray side tables?

One of my favorite things to do is set a bold accent piece in the brightest most popping color I can find. It is always fun to balance it with a more muted tone, in this case the shabbyish cafe sign. Not only does this even out the effect of such a bright yellow, but in this case the industrial style sign adds tons of wow-factor to the space. Just awesome. It didn't even need to be hung on the wall. Simply lean it in the corner and you're done. That is my kind of interior design.
