Take a look around this retro-style home in the New Forest

10 images

The owners bought this two-bedroom 1980s end-of-terrace property, with a conservatory extension, in the New Forest in 2014. When they moved in, everything was painted magnolia with neutral-coloured carpets, dark brickwork in the conservatory and peach and terracotta tiles in the kitchen.

They re-painted the conservatory brickwork white and brightened the rooms with their favourite pieces including a giant, purple velvet sofa. Part of the reason they bought the house was that it was big enough to fit the sofa – they had bought it before they had even begun to look for a property! They turned the second bedroom into an office and built a studio in the garden to use as a showroom.

One of the owners, Sophie, runs vintage homewares company Pineapple Retro, and uses the studio to display her stock by using a handy rear access for customers. She wanted to re-create the interiors she has loved since she was younger, including the 1960s-style designs and G-Plan furniture her Grandma had while she was growing up.
