Modern Retro 1980’s Inspired Living Room Decor

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.


Do you like retro decor with a twist? Does anything on here take your fancy?

Like me? Then why not pin for later?

      Haha! Yes I think even my 6 year old would think it’s weird too! The cushion is awesome isn’t it?! x

      I love the pattern on that cushion. It seems that most folk had one of those phones at some point. Funny how things change with time 🙂

    I can’t say I am a big fan of the retro range! although saying that I do like a little retro look in the kitchen!

    Despite the amount of times that we ridicule 80’s fashion and style , there are many features that I like as evidenced through this 1980’s decor. That dial up phone is cute x
