The eclectic and colourful interiors of the 1950s and 60s have come in and out of fashion over the years. However, the retro revival is making headlines again, largely thanks to a rising obsession with the Soho House group and its quirky interiors.

The houses mix an array of aesthetics–merging different decades, textures, colours, and patterns into one perfectly mismatched yet somehow wonderfully unified space.

These vibrant interiors are a constant source of retro inspiration, along with umpteen other trends. It seems Soho House can do no wrong!

When it comes to furniture, think modern contours, bright colours and bold textures.

Your textile choices should follow suit–the more daring the better. And don’t forget to experiment with patterns.

The retro trend is all about eccentric lighting. Go for a funky chandelier or contemporary bulb lamps.

Finally, top off the retro look with stacking side tables and add a vintage radio or rotary telephone into the mix for good measure!
