To bring back the 1980’s would be awesome wouldn’t it? If you were an 80’s child that is. The days spent trying to figure out the rubik’s cube. Swapping garbage pail kids stickers with your friends, how gross were those?! Playing with your speak and spell, as that was the closest thing we had to Siri back then!
We are looking into moving in the foreseeable future, so I’m already planning the decor of the rooms. Ideally I would like to inject a little retro into one of my themes. So here is my ……
Modern Retro 1980’s Inspired Living Room Wish-List
1 Retro Phone in swedish green I remember having one of these when we were kids, only ours was a red one. Don’t you just love the old turn of the dial action? Imagine calling a mobile number, it would take ages to put the number in. Luckily this one has push buttons!
2 Nextime Flipped Clock This screams out 1980’s. I just love the colour too.
3 Cactus Vase This is just awesome. I’m not really a cactus lover but this did win me over. So much infact I’ve gone and got myself one for my desk.
4 2 Seater Tubby Sofa Also available as a 3 seater, this shape and colour fits in with my retro theme perfectly.
5 Shunan Side Table I love the design of the stand on this table, isn’t it funky?!
6 Multicoloured Checked Blanket I always love a throw over the back of the sofa. Ideal for snuggling under whilst watching my favourite boxset. Loving how colourful this is.
7 Orionis Arched Floor Lamp I think this adds a nice quirky edge to the room and it’s bright pink! What’s not to love?
8 Retro Music Cassette Mix Tape Cushion This is one of my favourite picks. I remember listening to my cassette tapes. Who would have thought years on, we would be listening to all our tracks on a mp3 player?
9 Lixhult Storage Combination Love love love this. It’s also available in different colours and combinations. Basic yet effective.
10 Oval Links Retro Cushion You can never have too many cushions.
11 Retro Art Posters A cheap way to funk up your walls.
