What is modern retro? For me, it’s about be­ing in­spired by the iconic de­sign decades and styles of the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and even the ’80s – the ar­chi­tec­ture, fur­nish­ings, the colour pal­ettes and dec­o­ra­tive touches – and weav­ing those el­e­ments into a con­tem­po­rary set­ting for to­day’s life­style.

While open-plan rooms are now com­mon, we’re look­ing at how they were han­dled in the ’50s and ’60s. Room di­viders and open shelv­ing are back in fash­ion, of­ten used to cre­ate a sep­a­rate zone with­out block­ing light. In­ter­est­ing pen­dant lights with retro profi­files are re­plac­ing banks of ceil­ing lights. And green­ery is again tak­ing its place in our liv­ing spa­ces.
