Retro Rooms: Els Willems

Els4

Retro Rooms moves across the world once more, stopping this time in Groningen in the Netherlands, at the home of Els Willems.

Below (and over the turn) are some photos of Els' house, which she describes as a "canvas of fifties stuff". And there's even a picture of her 25-year-old VW Transporter too.

If you want to send us some images of your retro home or retro room, email them to us at info@retrotogo.com.

Retro Rooms: Brian Carson

Brian_carson

Up to Scotland for the latest retro room - Brian Carson's office/sitting room in Motherwell to be precise.

Brian runs Braw25, which offers retro interior design throughout Scotland. In the picture, you'll see a Guzzini floor lamp and table lamp, a Grillo telephone and a deco clock. And as the windows have low sills, there's also two low-level 60s armchairs that don't block the light.

If you want to show off your home, a room in your home or even just a corner of your room, email us with a picture (or pictures) and some explanatory notes and we'll be more than happy to show your designs skills off.

Buy an authentic 60s home in Staffordshire

Staffs_1

Not a retro room, but a retro home - in fact, not even retro - this is a stylish 60s home almost unchanged from the day it was built - and you could be the next owner.

The house in Edgefields Lane, Stockton Brook in Stafffordshire is on the market for a whopping £525,000. For your money, you get an architect-designed home from 1960 that was raved about at the time by Ideal Home magazine. And all those original features are still there - including the original kitchen, bathroom and decor. There's also underfloor heating, glass walls and "outdoor rooms"  - and all it's all set in two acres of land.

See over the turn for a picture of the kitchen or check the estate agent's website for even more images.

Retro Rooms: Kelly Bryden

Kelly_1 Our Retro Rooms feature moves back to the US, with Kelly Bryden offering us a glimpse into part of her house in Wilmington, Delaware. The best way to describe it is to leave it to Kelly - and don't forget to see over the turn for additional images.

If you want to see your house, room or collectables on this site, just send over a couple of pictures and words of explanation to info@retrotogo.com and we'll show the world!

Over to Kelly...

"In the 10 years that I have owned my home, I have always wanted to redecorate this room, but never put much effort in to it due to the fact that we rarely used it.  It is a large room with a very large window and I feared that it couldn't be re-done without spending a fortune.  Since my husband collects vintage glass and ceramic-ware, I thought that adding some shelving would be a good place to showcase his "finds", as well as give the room some much needed warmth and personality."

Retro Rooms: Kavel and Richard

Kavel_1 Our Retro Rooms feature moves to Sweden, focusing on occasional RTG contributors Kavel and Richard and their Stockholm apartment.

Sadly, they're leaving this place, but for an even more retro place next month, so they've taken the opportunity to send over a couple of snaps before departing. Check out the image to your right for a nice teak cabinet including a 'Picnic' china service, Stig Lindberg 'Berså' leaf china and Atomium collectables.

And see over for part of Richard's' Elvis Library on some very Swedish string shelves and some of Kavel's bespoke wall art inspired by Blue note artwork. And if you want to see more of Kavel's work, check out Kavel's website.
