Let’s face it, very few people can resist the lure of nostalgia. Yet of all the eras, the 1950’s seems to remain the hearts of us all because it changed the entire world in ways that are still revered to this very day. It was a time when the Beach Boys bobbed heads, the screens were silver and every garage had a hot rod. Just like any special moment in time we all love to recall it, and nothing quite captures that time in history like an automotive tin sign.
Any area or location can become a virtual conversation piece when transform into a time capsule fashioned by nothing more than one or several of these decorative pieces. Regardless of what other furniture is in place, an automotive tin sign will instantly apprehend the imagination by magically taking anyone back to the days of California dreaming. Imagine a room in your home with your basic layout of bar stools, solid color furniture, and your simple dining room table. The added existence of an automotive tin sign to this modest space will take the room from forgettable to formidable. This wall décor is a must have for any home that is missing that one piece that you can’t quite place your finger on, but know it is needed to fill a void.
There are, of course, other rooms that are tailor made for these metal pieces. For example nothing brings life to a game room like several of these wall placements set in full view to accompany your pool table center piece. You will discover that a new life is inserted into your already festive space. These two dimensional signs add a certain edge that gives the room a timeless visual voice. Yet no matter what room is chosen, the garage is a must for these signs. The American garage gave birth many of the very cars displayed in these dynamic depictions. With these retro portraits placed on the bare wall of any garage, even the car parked inside will appear to have a brighter sheen to it. The difference may seem subtle at first, but the vibrant difference will have your neighbors following your lead, and each morning when you leave for work it would be impossible to avoid taking a glance at your decorative talents.
