Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

As the seasons change, their circular timeline repeats year after year.  Trends come and go and some fashions repeat and evolve onto the worlds stage.  Although I think we all wish some of the fashions of our teenage years (including hair do's) stay locked in a volt never to be seen again.

Let's Get Retro

Brash wallpaper was common place in the 1970's, with it's geometric patterns, large flowers and bold colours.  For years we have mocked our bad 70's taste, joked how we will never go there again, but low and behold the 70's wallpaper is back.  Some even calling it sexy and stylish, this new evolved retro wallpaper has the same bumptious patterns with a little panache.
