A Spoonful of Vintage

For the second time Doug has photographed the home of retro lifestyle duo Helen Monaghan and and Ian Hughes. Together they run a business called Vintage vendors selling their wares at vintage fairs. Living and breathing 1950s style, this uncompromising couple have recently bought a 1950s apartment on the seafront in Edinburgh and, of course, have furnished it in impeccable period detail.

The level and attention to detail is amazing. That parquet floor!

They have cheated a little bit in the kitchen, with their washing machine and neat, slimline hob and oven… Tut tut, I will be sending the style inspectors round if you don’t put that right soon Helen.
