Retro Rooms: Zoe Worsley in Beckenham, Kent

Z1

We've not done one of these for a long time, perhaps because we stopped asking you to send in your Retro Rooms. Do feel free to send us snaps if your retro-inspired rooms or houses (and some details about them), just like Zoe Worsley in Beckenham.

Zoe has done the logical thing – she has a 1970s-built apartment (the block was built in 1977 and is pictured below), so she's gone for a '70s-inspired theme for the place.

In terms of what you see in the photo, the unit was picked up from eBay for just 99p (just to show there are still bargains out there), with the glass dining room table, clock, stool and material (to make the wall hanging) also eBay bargains over the years. The dark wood flooring came with the flat.

Also, the bar came from a vintage shop in Greenwich (sadly no longer there), the lamp and plant holder were passed down in the family and the rug came from this vintage seller.

Sure you'll agree, it all looks great – and without costing a fortune. if you want to show off your place too, head to the contact us section of the site and share it!

  • Such a shame that vintage shop next to Up The Creek in Greenwich is no longer. The replacement retro-style cafe is nice, but has very little stock and is way overpriced. Greenwich has seen some unfortunate changes in the last ten years.
