THE PARTY is only getting started here at Retro Renovation. I have a feeling that American design in 2010 is going to be even more retrograde-retrocrazed, than ever. Looking ahead to year #3 for the blog, I’d love to hear from you. What do you want to see more of… less of…? What are your favorite features? What are your biggest needs? How can the blog help you out with your projects, even more?

    I love your blog! I love hearing about shops or website where there are good finds for reproductions or originals. I also enjoying seeing time capsules. They are so inspirational!

    This is a great website..I look at it every day. My problem is I keep clicking on all the interesting thing I know an hour has passed! I enjoy discovering the name for the original countertop in my family home I bought (gold dust by GE), and wallpaper that used to be in the hallway, my square recessed lights in the ads, I keep turning corners and finding something new (or old depending on your point of view!). Like other readers, I like looking at what others have done with their houses. Keep up the good work Pam.

  3. I’ll echo all the love, too! I especially like all the links to other retro blogs. Such a wide variety!

    I found you too late to help me with my interior (except for fun accessories and such), but I’m struggling to decide what to do with my exterior now. You’ve had lots of sources for exterior products, so keep that up. Maybe something about mid-century landscaping would be fun.

    If nothing changes, it’ll still be great!

    This is my favorite website, I look at it everyday! When I bought my little ranch house I bought it because it was affordable. I was feeling kinda down cause I thought of it as a little box with no character. I was wrong! Thank-you for helping me see it through new eyes. I’m having fun decorating and don’t miss all the square feet I used to have to keep clean! Keep up the great work Pam!

    I agree with all the other commentors…this is one of the best mid century resource blog/website that is out there. Thanks Pam!! One thing I would like to see highlighted in the new year is information/designs for mid century patios and landscaping. That is the next big item on our list of things to do and I want to do my ’56 house justice!!

    I, like everyone else, love your website and even though I personally would like to see more topics about how we can incorporate ACTUAL vintage appliances and electronics into our vintage style homes today on this site (I am a hard core retro hound) I must admit that you do an excellent job on this blog seeing as you have such a wide variety of vintage tastes to cater to, not to mention how much of your time this blog must consume. So I must agree with everyone else and say this is as near a perfect retro website as you will find on the net and it gets a 9.5 out of 10 from Pat’s Vintage-O-Tron Vintage Meter.

  7. This blog has been such a great help to me. It kept me company for the two months we spent in a teeny apartment waiting for the closing on our 1952 ranch. We are accidental mid-century modest living in a small town where many of the houses are 200+ years old. Munching on RetroRenovation has helped me learn to love a style and time period I previously new nothing about. I love how well organized the info is. It would be nice to see more on wood kitchens since that is what I have. I also find floorplans to be really helpful. I’d love to see more about landscaping (zone 4/5) and DIY anything.

    Congratulations on your new (old) house, Cindy. You kinda sound like me when I bought my house. I had wanted a classic New England farmhouse (gasp! yes! I admit it!) But, the gods sent me this house instead — and it’s been a blast ever since! I look forward to seeing more of your house, and have noted your requests. I think I have several posts on wood kitchens, I think… I’ll have to group them up for you and others to ogle.
