Retro Mash Up

What’s old is new again with Retro Mash Up and we love to see it. A look back at the origins of design eras through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s opens up new ways of re-inventing and re-imagining in the present day. Think a graphic mix of bright hues and in terms of colour, anything goes – don’t be afraid to break some rules and go boldly. Our number one styling tip is to choose a colour you love and build on it from there – adding white into the mix makes this palette truly versatile and helps those bright colours pop.
