We all have our own styles we want to see throughout our homes. Some of us are into the contemporary side of things, with plenty of light shades on the wall and clear space around the floor. Some of us turn to the mid century for a comforting look, with bright couches to sit on and perfectly varnished wood coffee tables to rest a crossword book on. And some of us like the vintage side of things. We like to look around the room and see 70s retro, or a throwback to the 1950s. It’s just how we like to live; a bit of aged decor here and there and we feel right at home.
Which is why it might be of use to you to find some inspiration for your vintage interior plans. If you love the idea of firing up a gramophone and playing some records no one has heard since the 20s, we’ve got a couple of suggestions for you!

Pop the TV On
