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!

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
