Woman transforms her house into a 70s themed home filled with retro furniture and antiques

A 70s-obsessed mum has transformed her house in a living time capsule from the decade including an avocado bathroom suite - which she bagged for just 99p.

Simone Radley has spent around £20,000 on retro furniture and antiques from the era to kit out her three-bedroom semi.

She dazzles guests at her house, which features flying ducks on the wall and cheese plants alongside retro furniture, murals and wallpaper.

She scours antique and charity shops across the country and online to find iconic 1970s furnishings for the £250,000 house.

And she has spent around £20k on items and work such as plumbing, tiling, carpet fitting, electrical work and joinery.

Since moving into the house with husband Jonathan, 38, and their two daughters last September, she has bagged bargains including free sofas and retro bedding for £2.

But her best buy was when she removed an all-white bathroom to be replaced with an avocado and mustard suite she bought from eBay for just 99p.

Simone, 38, said her passion for the era began with a love of its fashion and she scoffed at suggestions the 70s is the 'time that taste forgot'.

She said: "I think that's a lot of rubbish, I definitely don't agree. I think it's great.

"It's each to your own and I would never call anyone's style bad really.

"It's just down to the individual and I think you should really celebrate doing what you love."
