Retro Rooms: Fred de Groot

Fred3 Holland is our next stop for our Retro Rooms feature and the home of Fred de Groot.

We don’t know much about Fred and his home in Sneek (yes, there is such a place), but we do know he is an avid collector of classic/vintage design – and these photos (see over onto the next page for more) are our evidence.

If you have any photos of your home, your collection or a single room, we always like to hear from you. Contact us at the address on this page with your photos and details and we will get them online as soon as we can.

Retro Rooms: Carlos Molina

Space1

I’m always amazed by how many people read Retro To Go – and how widespread everyone is. And just to prove that point, our latest retro room is provided by Carlos Molina in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Carlos is a fan of the futuristic designs of the late 60s and early 70s and displayed here (and over the page) are some photos of his music room, which is a shrine to that era. Enjoy picking out some real design classics.

Big thanks to Carlos for sending them in. And if you want to send us some pictures, we’re always happy to feature them.

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 [email protected].

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.

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 [email protected] 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 ‘BersÃ¥’ 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.
