We would like to thank Homes & Antiques Magazine for their involvement in creating the 1950s living space.

“Atomic patterns; bright colours; sleek, angular furniture – the 1950s was when interiors changed forever, when design hit the high street and fashion moved from the catwalk and into our homes. Revisit the time in all its glorious technicolour in the Homes & Antiques 1950s living room and let us know what you think on the interactive phone.” Homes & Antiques
