Room for Change? Find Out Which Decade Your Room Style Creates

When it comes to decorating and styling a room in our homes, we all have our own degree of flair when it comes to putting a look together. We may not all know the colour palette for the season, but we do know which our favourite are. The trickier part comes in putting a room together, combining the right colours, furniture style and accessorise to create a look that works together and suits our personality. It may be retro 70's, or vintage 40's or modern contemporary with minimal accessorises.

1920's Style Room for Change
My answers created a 1920's room. 
'Your interior utopia involves art deco lamps and sumptuous sofas, glossy wooden furniture and ornate fireplaces. Add an antique gramophone for dedicated authenticity and Charleston the night away!' 
Well just call me Lady Mary! Actually I much prefer Lady Edith but that is enough Downton Abbey talk.  This style does not surprise me, I love heritage, old type writers, singer sewing machines, Ercol furniture  - although I am not sure my knee would be up to doing the Charleston all night long.


Why not try it yourself maybe you like the modern style or hark back to the 1970's when ghetto blasters were all the trend. It is a real memory jogger when you see some of the accessories and furniture designs, some will take you back to when you where a child and the home you grew up in. Find out your Decade Style at the Room For Change website.

  1. I have a cat just like that - or I used to :/ I think I picked it up from a charity shop I used to work in. x

  2. I love picking things up from charity shops! Apparently I belong in the 1940s which is odd because I love modern slick but also a bit of shabby chic...hmm who knows?! X



I really do appreciate you leaving me a comment, and I enjoy reading them all.
