The ‘Roaring Twenties’ was full on indulgence and uninhibited spending. Interiors were glam and extravagant, think art deco and gold accents in bedrooms. Check out our sophisticated twenties inspo board, who doesn’t love an art deco swan?

Post-war Brits didn’t have the money to spend on extravagant homewares. Interiors were simple, sweet and colourful. Enter the legendary floral chintz print. Pale wood brightened rooms and complemented girly florals. Cath Kidston led the modern rebirth of chintz and it’s here to stay.  Trends for babies’ rooms are awash with pastel shades and it’s a look that stays fresh. Check out the super cute retro style Amazon Alexa.

Sixties and Seventies

Go the love and peace route and embrace the swingin’ sixties and seventies. The Beatles and Rolling Stones rocked while warm, peaceful tones reigned. It was a tangerine dream bursting against oranges, reds, yellow, pinks and purples in a psychedelic haze. There’s a growing renaissance with modern nursery websites starting to embrace the look. Check out our board and fall in love with the cot sheet. For a mega sixties inspired floral bedroom visit @tinleyarabella insta page. Peace out!
