Up close and retro in my home


My home is often an explosion of retro prints, carboot gems and country-esque flowers. I also realised, when watching Kirstie's 'Fill your house for free' programme, that a lot of the things in my house were also free or ridiculously cheap thanks to relatives hand-me-downs, ebay and carboots. 

I am lucky in the fact that the country house I live in matches this style - and scattered around are a few statement pieces/areas that bring it all together. From pine cones on scales to a 'hideous' retro picnic throw on a dainty white chair - it's the odd combinations that work the best so I thought I'd share these with you...
