Meet the women who’ve turned their homes into shrines to their favourite decade
We’ve all entertained the thought: wouldn’t it have been great to live in that era?
Well, these women are so enchanted with decades of yesteryear they’ve transformed their homes into authentic replications of their favourite era.
Claire Nugent, 43, and Nigel Morter, 47, have been married for 14 years. They love the 1940s and have restored a 1940s airfield control tower in Norfolk and now run it as a B&B.
“We love the style because there’s such an attention to detail in everything from the handles through to the surfaces,” says Claire.
Emma Edwards, 46, lives with her partner Nigel Preston, 57, in Manchester. They love the 1950s so much that one point they had six 50s cocktail bars in their home.
“I’ve always loved the flamboyance of the 1950s — they were so kitsch and glamorous. Interiors of the era are full of texture, colours and shapes, so there’s always something exciting, quirky or beautiful to look at in our home,” Emma says.
Ursula Forbush, 48, lives near Bristol and adores the kitschy 1960s.
“From the red glass vases and psychedelic wallpaper, to the Formica tables and G-plan dining suite, everything about my two-bedroom terrace home is a tribute to the late Sixties,” says Ursula.
