Retro Telephone – Petrol Blue/Red

One of the best ways to bring back a classic style is to give it a little facelift and, perhaps, a dash of extra colour in order to adapt it for a modern interior. This phone, from Wild & Wolf is a classic example of slightly remoulding a classic design for a slightly different look, without losing the original character and flavour. The eye-catching petrol blue finish contrasts boldly with the red cord and buttons.

It’s impossible to create a list of retro styles without including a good bit of pop art. Contemporary, minimalistic style can sometimes feel a little cold and surgical. A small addition like this Cola clock can really help to add a little humour and personal character to a simple and clean contemporary interior.

Retro Mirror – Circles

Straight outta the ’60s, this attractive modular mirror is a beautiful statement piece for a room which needs a little extra ‘pop’. The unique modular design demonstrates that there can be a lot more to mirrors than a simple square design and a frame.

Time for some maple syrup pancakes and a tall milkshake. This retro phone echoes the iconic style of  a 1950’s American diner. The modern telephone cables enable you to create your own retro style, 60 years on!
