As dependent as I am on my cell phone (ahem, that is, both my cell phones), I still really like having a landline. It's nice to have a back-up, service is pretty cheap, and it just feels normal to me. Of course, I'm still pretty picky about the design of a house phone I'll buy — in that it needs to be a cute part of my decor. I think this retro Pink Metro Phone from Pottery Barn Kids is totally adorable — the style is such an old school and romantic design. And it isn't too retro — it's cordless, of course. Although I don't know if I could commit to the pink (but there is a black version on Pottery Barn's main site). How do you feel about the retro pink phone?
