Who doesn't love a retro ceramic to brighten up their kitchen? These Swedish bird pots, available from Pedlars, have got both colour and charm a plenty.
Tropical style prints, from birds to florals, are most often used to conjure up a fifties style in retro fashion. With just a subtle difference, however, the styling can speak to an entirely different era and aesthetic. This Bird Print Jacket from Miss Selfridge takes its inspiration from a sultry seventies look.
The jacket's flowing fit, with billowing sleeves and a waist-fastening front, helps to create an instant seventies look, with the movement of draped fabric achieving a striking silhouette. The use of ombre pastel shades as a backdrop for the exotic print adds some post-sixties modernity, giving you the option of carrying this item through to an early eighties wardrobe too.
It's available from Miss Selfridge for £40.
You can choose from red or pink and the polkadot print and cute bird design combines 1950s classic colours with a modern twist.
They are a real bargain and the perfect way to treat yourself for only £3 from Joy online.
This Körsbärsträdgården fabric is another Marianne Westman design dug out from the archives by Almedahls.
Although the name doesn't exactly trip off the tongue (unless you are fluent in Swedish), the name translates as cherry orchard, perhaps obvious from the charming cherries and cherry blossom visible in the design.
It's been reissued alongside Picknick to coincide with Westman's 80th birthday and still looks pretty and fresh today. The design is printed onto a 50% linen and 50% cotton mix.
The fabric costs £29 a metre.
