Between packing up a TARDIS-like townhouse and moving its contents across state lines, I've completely missed out on contributing to GoS' Retro 20th Centry theme. This bums me, but does not prevent me from making things on my own, of course. I was hoping to come up with things that were more based throughout the 1910s, 20s, 30s and early 40s.
Why I'm posting about this here is I'd like some suggestions from other interested parties on what sort of things would make a room look appropriate for any of the above mentioned periods for you. Clocks? Radios? Vases? Essential furniture? If you know of a picture of what you have in mind, that'd be great, too. But yeah, looking for suggestions. I found a couple weeks ago that lileks.com has a whole section of the site dedicated to commercial artwork and photos from the 30s, so I've been trying to glean inspiration from that.
My strengths, such as they are, lie with deco objects and simple furniture, maybe head accessories - hairs and clothing are out of my league. I can't guarantee that I'll make every suggestion or give an ETA on when it'll get done, but I definitely want to make up for the lost month. Some of the things I've already been considering are some manner of Hoosier cabinet, top-motor refrigerators, older stoves, that kind of thing, so if you either want to elaborate on these or suggest other objects from the first forty-five years, please feel free!
