A 1950's style diner table is a must-have item for the retro home. Several two-person tables could be placed together or a larger table could be located. Red, yellow and black are the colors for table seating.
The little touches here are great. The orange tea kettle and mixer. The colorful retro glasses. The old-fashioned shade of paint for the cabinets. Lovely.
Of course, the retro housewife enjoys cooking and might want a more elaborate and functional kitchen. This one takes color cues from the past but is fully modern.
The retro housewife loves to spend time doing DIY crafts. She needs a studio, office or at least some table space to work on whatever she's making.
Decorating her kids' rooms, the retro housewife might choose decor such as this. The black-on-white and white-on-black polka dots would also work for the curtains and wall coverings in other rooms of the home.
A beautiful well-organized laundry room is a must in this woman's home. She may take pleasure in doing household chores but she certainly wants to facilitate doing them with ease!
A modern apron is a favorite addition to the retro housewife's clothing collection. It is functional but also celebrates both her domesticity and her sense of style. A display of such aprons in the kitchen or hall is a great addition to the home.
There's something about the typewriter that is alluring to a lot of retro housewives. Maybe it's the history and mystery of the women writers who stayed at home in the past. Some women will actually use the old typewriter but others will merely decorate with it in creative ways such as this.
A lovely cocktail cart is a nice addition to this home. It brings back memories of martinis in the afternoon with the girls. Of course, tea sets would also be an option.
After a long day of taking care of the house, the retro housewife needs a terrific bathroom to retreat to. This lovely pink tub is a great spot for her.
