Fizzy Design Rush: Add Some Refreshing Reds With Iconic Coca-Cola Decor

We do not really discriminate between soft drinks, but when it comes to the world of interior design and decor, somehow Coca-Cola has managed to trump Pepsi in an emphatic fashion. The number of homes that you see embracing the ‘Coke’ banner and posters is a whole lot more than the few homes that might feature Pepsi iconography. For decades now, Coke has been viewed not just as a global soft drink brand, but also as an ‘American icon’. Vintage Coke posters, vending machines and replicas still find a ‘loving niche’ in many contemporary homes.

If you are one of those who has spent some time at the local flea market or antique show, then you would have already come across several Coke classics and collectibles. Apart from the cultural value, Coca-Cola decor is a wonderful way to add some color to your modern interiors. Nostalgic, fun and timeless in its own unique way, this soft drink-themed merchandise is showcased in the versatile inspirational images that follow –

Live on the Coke Side of Life

A lot of times, the image of decorating with antique Coke novelties is the one of overwhelming a room in red, along with black and white. We get that most people are trying to recreate the retro-style magic of the ’50s and ’60s Coke diner. But that is not your only option. There are plenty of other ways in which you can decorate with vintage Coke machines, large framed posters and other iconography. Use that rare coke poster just as any other poster in the home by framing it and accentuating the space with the right accent lighting.

There are many modern re-interpretations of the classic Coke poster that you can use in minimal and transitional spaces. A restored vending machine in the corner or even a large button-style minimalist Coke sign can get the job done with finesse. Remember that at the end of the day, too much red can be visually overwhelming, unless you are going all-out to embrace the Coke theme!

Where There’s Coke There’s Hospitality!

Why not embrace the tagline and philosophy that propelled Coke through the ’40s and ’50s? The fizzy sugar rush of the drink was combined with the idea of friends, family and good times very early in its marketing. That very image has persisted now for nearly a century! Celebrate this spirit of togetherness by decorating your game room, family area or even the man cave in the basement with Coke-inspired decor. Now, this is one place where you can go all out with the reds, and for the serious collectors, there is the possibility of decking out the space with some special vintage finds. A perfect way to add some cheer to the fun times!

A Refreshing New Feeling!

At Decoist, we are not just about going out and spending some cash to bring home amazing decor. (Though that is often what the lazy ones among us do.) It is time to take that old Coca-Cola crate and bottles and turn them into appealing and inventive decor. The DIY possibilities with a crate are obviously endless, and you can craft anything ranging from rustic wall shelves to magazine holders and home office organizers! One of the ideas that we absolutely loved is the use of spray painted Coke bottles, shown below. Easy to execute and a whole lot of fun, this decorative statement can be personalized with summer colors if you are not too keen on the fall gold version showcased here.

Open Happiness in the Kitchen

Many modern kitchens are trying their best to find that perfect balance between the old and the new. While functionality has taken a modern turn, a large number of homeowners still prefer a few classic design elements in the kitchen. Simple and unassuming, Coke banners and posters add this timeless touch without demanding too much in terms of effort and time. You can obviously craft a retro-style diner right next to the kitchen to enhance this look. The kitchen is one of the easiest places to incorporate eclectic and colorful features. Coke accessories also allow you to easily define and elevate the focal points in your culinary space.
