Retro Chic Living

via Stadshem

I was trying to think how to sum this home up in a couple of words and I think RETRO CHIC fits it well. If I were to add a few more words to it's decription they would be CASUAL, SIMPLE, ELEGANT, and CHEERFUL. I think it's kind of fun to study photos like this because you can really glean a sense of the homeowners interests and personality by looking at the colors they chose for their textiles and decorations and even by looking at the books on their shelves and the pictures on their walls. Not only did they choose red as one of the primary colors in their rooms, but they chose classic black and white photos for their walls, their shelves are stacked with a variety of colorful books, and there's a huge world globe sitting on an end table.

After studying these photos, what would you say the interests and personality of the homeowners would be?

What do (or don't) you like about this home?


  1. Love the kitchen, the bright cabinets are great!

  2. Love, love, love this home! I'm immediately drawn to the white but so smitten by the pop of color. I'm drawn in by homes that ooze of comfort and lived in loveliness. This house is just that! Thanks for sharing. :)
