Get the Look: Cozy Retro Living Room

I'm getting eager for turning leaves, crisp mornings, and an excuse to relax next to a roaring fire. Given these sentiments, it's no surprise that I was attracted to this cozy retro living room, from Mark Bolton's portfolio. I'm dreaming about escaping to a Northern California coastline cabin with a similar retro, cozy vibe and curling up with a cup of tea and a good book.

Many elements of the room would be easy to replicate. Raid your grandma's house for a brightly colored afghan like the one found in the wooden bowl on the floor. Check eBay for vintage telephones, and create a funky and lovely little vignette with accents you already own.


One must-have element to the room is the gorgeous red woodstove. The Invicta Bradford Stove ($2000) would do the job nicely.

While I appreciate the look of the Danish shag rug shown here, it's just too retro for my tastes. To bring this look into the modern day, I'd forego the retro shag (if you do love this rug, though, you can buy one for a pretty penny on eBay). Instead, I'd lay down this beautiful Peace Industry felt rug ($2200).

Create the woodsy wall by using a circular saw to cut one-inch circles from a felled tree, and use the rest of the logs, after they've dried sufficiently, for firewood placed in a pretty branch basket.
