This book explores the meanings and practices of vintage lives. It focuses on the non-mainstream subculture of vintage clothes and lifestyle, specifically that of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, and asks how those engaged in the culture place themselves within the gendered and classed contexts of these eras. As a result, it also identifies the tensions involved in these identities connected to a past that offered little gain for women and narrow gender roles for both women and men. Modern Vintage Homes & Leisure Lives is based on original empirical international data about a group of people who wear vintage clothing all of the time and whose homes are styled entirely, or almost entirely, vintage. It aims to understand the meanings of vintage for them through their daily practices and accrued knowledge. Through interviews and direct observations of vintage events it also explores questions about the acquisition, display and curation of vintage clothes, homes and objects, about glamour and wardrobes, about the history of second-hand markets, and emotional durability and ideas about ghosts, hauntings and spectral remains. It will be of particular interest to students and academics of gender and women’s studies, fashion and design, fashion history, cultural studies, the body and embodiment.

Retro is back – if it ever went away – and more and more of us are finding inspiration in the homes of the twentieth century. Whether your preferred style is elegant Art Deco, streamlined mid-century modern or the chrome-laden decor of the classic American diner, Retro Home shows you how to re-create the look you love without having to break the bank or spend days scavenging junk shops and attics. Interiors expert Katherine Sorrell surveys the highly polished and lacquered glamour that characterized the homes of the 1920s and ’30s, the bright colours and Scandinavian sleek of the ’50s, and the funky plastic furnishings of the ’60s and early ’70s. She explains how to select a style that works for you; explores iconic designs that are crucial to getting the right look; and presents over 20 case studies of stunning retro rooms in contemporary homes. Whichever room you’re decorating, in whichever style, Retro Home guides you through the colour schemes, furniture (whether vintage or reproduction), soft furnishings and accessories that will create an authentic, individual interior.

There’s an enduring charm to the shabby-chic, Bohemian and ultra relaxed look we now know as Vintage. It’s the perfect choice for anyone tired of modern white interiors, and ideal for family living as there is minimal maintenance. Yet opting for Vintage is also a way of life: once you’ve started scouring for finds, it will become a pleasurable habit hard to break. Best of all, it has become an eco choice: the more we salvage, the better we feel. In short, creating your very own ‘Vintage Home’ is the perfect antidote to our throwaway world. For anyone keen to escape the wasteland of pared down architecture and identikit shopping, The Vintage Home will show them how to shop cleverly, mix creatively, and put together unique, welcoming and eclectic interiors that are perfect for modern living. Judith Wilson initiates the reader with an exploration of Vintage style’s five key looks –‘Country Vintage’, ‘Boudoir Vintage’, ‘Retro Vintage’, ‘Urban Vintage’ and ‘Modern Vintage’. As putting together your chosen look involves a combination of sifting through what you’ve already got and some leg work, The Vintage Home then takes you shopping in the consumer peripheries of car boots, antique shops and vintage websites. Finally there’s a look at each individual room in the house, and at the elements that give a home its sense of style –from radiators and door handles, to sofas, chairs and tables, from lighting to soft furnishings, and from glass and ceramics to paintings and photos. With page after page of inspirational photographs and a wealth of practical ideas, The Vintage Home will show you how to embrace today’s new decorative, eclectic mood.
