So all I can do is tell you what we've started to decide on, I promise I will do a house tour at some point as we go. So first and foremost our design aesthetic is going to be 1950s atomic ranch house, lots of atomic patterns, some rather lovely curves, rocketship chrome and hopefully it will be nice. How exactly I'm going to put it all together is another thing entirely though.
The first major purchase you have to make is a new sofa, as we have nearly no furniture I've been poring over catalogues and websites, looking for a retro style, looking for fabulous atomic legs. I found this rather yummy little recliner chair though, all 1950s lipstick red and chrome, it sort of picks up the Eames Chair aesthetic but adds a jolt of pin up. Very up my street.
I'm thinking of adding some crazy atomic wallpaper to the walls and create a proper capsule of 1950s retro. What do you guys think? How do you decorate?
