A 2015 retro trend...


It’s no secret that I love interior design, having posted about it plenty of times in the run up to moving house, and constantly pinning on to my Home Pinterest board. We’ve almost finished decorating our lounge now with just some art for the walls left to buy, but I’m pleased to see we’ve been a bit ahead of the curve whilst decorating – retro style is in for 2015. I love the eclectic mix of pieces you can place in a living room, and as it is the room we spend most time in with guests, its only right to have some personality in there too. As I mentioned on Sunday, I’ll be posting a living room tour on the blog soon so keep an eye out for that to see how we’ve followed the trend for 2015. For now though, I thought I’d post a moodboard with some pieces that you could add to your home to incorporate those retro-vibes.

We started off with a grey sofa that created a neutral base to start the room with. This 'Buoyant Cassie' corner sofa from Furniture Choice is similar, though we got ours from gumtree. I know grey can be seen as a boring colour, but with some scatter cushions and throws it really gives the perfect base – it goes with any colour scheme and doesn’t show the dirt! I love the orange angled lamp which is from Wilkos (currently reduced to £10) – a definitely nod towards the 60s. Placed on a windowsill, a desk or just on a side table, I think it’s a great accessory to bring some colour into the room.
I’ve walked past that rug several times since I’ve been in Tiger this month – the bright colours and textured weave always catching my eye. Although not right in our space, I think this would look really lovely placed on some hardwood flooring, perhaps under a coffee table or in a hallway.
It’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour and the jug is a beautiful piece. The bright yellow vintage-style clock is another happy colour which would definitely catch your eye. When I think of retro style, I think of fun and a lot of bright, clashing colours. I still think the sofa would allow you to decorate your lounge with these bright accessories – a neutral base means you’re allowed to go crazy with accessories, I reckon!
