Retro Rooms: Lara Williamson in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Retro8

Thanks for this photo from our latest Retro Roomer, Lara Williamson, who lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and has sent over a photo of her living room.

It's a triumph of what you can find on a budget, with Lara saying that this is just 'some of the many retro finds I have acquired at flea markets and thrift stores'. Have fun picking out just what those finds are. Love the old school stereo too.

Thanks to Lara for sending it in and if you have a photo or photos or your Retro Room(s), do drop us a line.

Retro Rooms: Antonino Biondi in Vienna, Austria

Vienna1

Big thanks to Antonino Biondi for sharing his Retro Room in Vienna, Austria with us.

The roon in question is the living room, mixing styles and eras for a quirky effect throughout. In terms of specifics, the wallpaper and brown chair were eBay finds, the deer head was discovered at a flea market and painted black and white, the 1970s curtains were picked up from the 'Design of the 20th century' shop in Vienna, the brown lamp and green sofa were also flea market finds and the table is Ikea - although according to Antonino, that will be replaced when something interesting comes up on eBay.

Retro Rooms: Simon Donald

Simon

Our shout out for some Retro Rooms got an instant response, including this rather tasty image from Simon Donald.

This is the kitchen from Simon's former house, which was originally fitted in Newcastle on Tyne in 1962 by Danitymaid of Tipton. Rather than doing the usual thing of ripping it out and replacing with something faceless from a DIY warehouse, Simon renovated it back in the 1990s, keeping everything as original as possible. The effort, as you can see from the photo, was well worth it.

Many thanks to Simon for sending it in and if you've got a Retro Room (or Rooms) you want featuring on the site, get in touch with us.
