Retro Rooms: Matt Wold in Portland, Oregon


We've had a great response to our request for Retro Rooms, but we're still on the look out for more if you fancy snapping round your home. If you need inspiration, check out the home of our first Retro Roomer of the week, Matt Wold from Portland, Oregon.

Retro Rooms: Simon Donald


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.

Retro Rooms: Tony Strange


After a brief detour to Finland, our Retro Rooms feature is back in the UK - London to be precise, for the room of Tony Strange.

Tony says he has a 'retro house' rather than a retro room, but we're just being let in on the living room for now. Plenty of space age design packing the place - and we're loving that round TV too.

See over for more photos and once again, if you want to show off your house or a single room, just get in touch.

Retro Rooms: Robert Ahlskog


Yes, it's the return of the Retro Rooms feature - and first up in our re-launched segment is Robert Ahlskog from Vaasa, Finland.

According to Robert: 'My interest in retro started one year ago, when I bought a copy of the ball chair by Eero Arnio. Then I got the idea of making an retro corner in our living room. Now, one year later almost the whole living room is in retro style'.

'The Ball Chair, Artichoke lamp, Le Klint lamps and the floor lamp by Poul Henningsen are all 'inspired by'. That's the great thing with the can order everything online, even here in the cold north. The table in the living room is made from two wall shelves and the chic white and black wallpaper is from The Double Bubble table lamp by Aarnio is one of his recent designs, but I think it looks so retro.'

Big thanks to Robert and if you want your room featured, fire over some images and a few words, we'll make your room famous! See over for more images.
