We finally moved into our new house last week and we wanted to share some of the retro lovelies that awaited us. It is a 1920s house in need of total refurbishment….as it is totally set in the 1960s. Yes, yes, we do love the retro look but perhaps to a modern standard.
Every room is covered in 60s wallpaper…some good, some bad, some down right ugly!
Let us know which you love and don’t love…
The amber one is in the hall…I love it but it will be ripped out as we are moving the stairs so it will become a natural casualty.
The pink flower power look is in the spare room and i love it. Our cream vintage furniture will look stunning against it.
The wall effect in the hall is definitely going! It is up against parquet flooring which is lovely but alas will also be going with the stairs moving. Or maybe we could just add some more…
I think the lounge walls and floor speak for themselves!
Kitty’s bedroom wallpaper is so pretty and looks gorgeous next to her shabby chic, white furniture and original bedroom fireplace.
The kitchen’s 70s tiles will be ripped out! They are along side bright blue walls…not the best colour scheme.
Our bedroom has a 60s psychedelic pink wall..I quite like it but it is not in good condition.
The landing carpet is spectacular!
The last owners left us a few gems which we may well keep..let us know your thoughts!
A 1980s car phone! I have never seen one before and may have to stay!
The starburst clock is bold and works!
The wall lights in the lounge with their teak background goes well with our furniture.
And finally I totally love the 1950s fire guard..never seen one before and looks great in the spare room!
We intend to blog the whole renovation so keep reading for news on which wallpapers are lost from our patterned palace!
And I will let Herbie have the last word…from the 1960s hatch!
