Interior design inspirations for my retro living room

When I moved in to my new home, the magnolia walls and featureless rooms meant that I had a blank canvas to create the comfortable home-of-my-dreams. The living room is actually really small but I’d like to make it into a retro haven, and here’s my mood board of fabrics, patterns, furniture and accessories for a pretty garish late 50s, 60s and kind-of icky 70s combo.

I’m working around my one piece of must-keep furniture, my sofa (I love it so much that he’s even been named: Peter Couch) and I’m on a serious budget so I’ll need toΒ be a bit flexible with my shopping choices and go for the best value for money that I can find! I’m not shy of a DIY project either (as you probably already know) so I’ll be looking for items that I can jazz up myself too! Check back soon to see how I’m getting on with my room overhaul and let me know if you have any suggestions for where I can get the look on a budget!
