A glorious celebration of vibrant twentieth-century design, colour and pattern, Living Retro offers a privileged glimpse into a selection of fabulous retro-inspired homes around the world, from Palm Springs to Paris. Our passion for retro style shows no signs of fading. From the cerebral elegance of mid-century modern and the spare simplicity of Scandinavian retro design to the flamboyant opulence of the 1970s, retro interiors still exert enormous appeal. In this glorious book, Andrew Weaving visits 18 inspiring and varied locations that showcase the Living Retro style. Take a tour of a minimalist loft in London, admire the spare simplicity of Scandinavian mid-century modern and enjoy the colourful, playful chic of Palm Beach in the 1960s - the carefully chosen locations around the globe illustrate the many facets of a look that ranges from sophisticated glamour to pared-down elegance.
