Tropical leaf salad serveware from Heal’s


Want to be a retro hostess with the mostest? You may want to consider investing in this Tropical leaf salad serveware from Heal's

A piece of kitsch, this green acrylic set comprises a large plate or a salad bowl and servers, both in the shape of a large tropical leaf. The shape is reminiscent of the ceramic Carlton ware leaf dish which was produced in the late 1940s into the 1950s but the use of the material creates something of a 70s feel. 

Stock up now ahead of the summer – the plates are £4 each, while the salad bowl and servers cost £25.

Retro leaves duvet set at Argos

Retro leaves duvet

It was only yesterday that we showed you the Orla Kiely book, the latest addition to her range. With such success, it's hardly surprising that high street alternatives that echo her style are available. A case in point is this retro leaves duvet from Argos

Argos isn't normally the first place you'd associate with retro style, but this duvet features a pleasant green and brown design of paired leaves, with a passing resemblance to Kiely's stem pattern. Not the time to be snobby about thread or tog count, the set is made from a polyester and cotton mix. 

Fantastic value though at £13.99 for a two pillowcase and king sized duvet set.
