A Brief Blog Profile: Retro Renovation
by Thomas Hynes
It's been said that fashion and trends are all cyclical. If it was fashionable once, it will be fashionable again. Just be patient and soon the trends will once again align with your taste. Or, if you're short on time, you could always check out Retro Renovation, the home design blog dedicated to celebrating the mid-century aesthetic. This blog is not so much about the process of doing it yourself. Rather, they often highlight the almost always beautiful finished product.
Speaking of finished products, there's a section on this blog dedicated to the kitchens of readers. There's even a section of the bathrooms submitted by readers, too. Speaking of bathrooms, here's a post with 94 toilet seats that come in as many different colors. Here you can view vintage wallpaper collections from the 50s, 60s and 70s. You can also check out this post on 28 places to buy an affordable midcentury sofa. And, if perhaps you wanted to get a larger picture, you could take a tour of a house like Nora's. It's described as a time capsule house. So, even if that doesn't sound cool to you (and it does to me), it's definitely going to be at least a little retro.
In case you haven't noticed, Retro Renovation is pretty thorough. They write about a lot! And, the funny thing about retro is that everything becomes a little more retro with each passing day. Think about it. In other words, they are probably never going to run out of stuff to blog about!
