Interior Inspiration: Sixties Style

If there’s one decade I love more than any, it’s the 1960s. The fashion, the beauty, the music, the style – and this isn’t just limited to our wardrobes. Sixties style, mixed with a chic Scandinavian flavour, is exactly how I want our home to look, and there’s some incredible pieces available just now to help us all achieve that chic retro flavour.

Pared-back tones of white and grey, mixed with darker woods, metallics and pops of colour are the key ingredients to get that vintage look. Furniture-wise, statement chairs are a great way to inject a key hit of style into the room, without compromising on comfort or making huge changes to your existing pieces. I love the Eames-style rocking chair and definitely have my eye on this for our living room, piled with a fluffy rug for a perfect reading nook – or this bright buttery yellow style is perfect for adding a pop of colour, in a great vintage shape.

Choose tables and storage with quirky details, like hairpin legs or splayed legs, like this side table and sideboard. Simple shapes and plain colours are key but you can still buy clever; a sleek sideboard looks fuss-free and streamlined, but you can cram it full of bits and pieces to keep the rest of your room looking tidy and minimal too.

In terms of accessories, I love pops of prints and colour, and splashes of metallics too. A gold round mirror is simple and striking, while a classic polka dot print is updated in the form of dalmation spots – a super cute way to add interest to any room. Throw down a rug to add colour and spark to your living room or hallway too; this bright patterned yellow one looks great and has that vintage vibe with a modern edge.

How would you give your home a 60s style?
