Interior design inspirations for a retro home: Office space

6 Comments

I’ve been working on a ‘makeover’ for my living room since moving in back in May (yes, I know… I’d never succeed on 60-Minute-Makeover!) and I’ve chosen a fairly garish 60s & 70s retro theme in orange, teak and brown with a few accents of blue. Although it’s taken me a while to get to this point that’s mostly due to lack of funds and the need for rummaging through car-boot sales, second-hand shops, auctions and even giving a new home to furniture that would otherwise be thrown away at the side of the road. I’ve buffed up a few pieces and I’m pleased to say that I’m nearly there! The only thing that needs attention is my work-space so I needed to do a bit of research into retro office spaces and here’s some of the photos that I’ve been inspired by from John Lewis, Retro Office and Apartment Therapy.

So I’m taking inspiration from these office spaces and will be keeping an eye out for a suitably retro office chair over the next couple of weeks. I may visit some home/design companies’ social sites as I know ones like Homeclick post a lot of videos and photos there. Let me know if you come across anything that might be suitable!
