MODERN decorating trends can be pretty boring.

Kardashian style plain white, everything looks pretty boring when the home looks the same.

This couple took a step back in time when they transformed their home into a vintage time capsule.

Since each room was inspired by a different decade, the duo had their work cut out.

But the finished rooms look like they’re straight out of a movie set.

Ellen Smurthwaite, 23, and partner Jake Nicholson, 27, managed to give their home a retro feel for just £600.

The Cumbrian couple decided to give their home a twist when they started decorating, starting with a 70’s themed living room.

Complete with groovy patterned pillows and a forest green velvet sofa, the room is a disco ball from being totally funky.

Vintage art prints, including a funky Playboy poster, add a youthful touch to the space.

A zebra rug completes the space, adding layer and dimension to the 1970s escape.

The room only cost the duo £400 to furnish: “We find everything in charity shops, on the Amazon or Facebook market.

“We don’t have a huge budget so this works really well for us as most of the items are other people’s junk.

“I have a lot of grandparents’ estates and even a WWII music box,” they shared.

They took their bedroom even further back in time with a 1950s theme.

A stunning feature wall behind her bed that draws the focus, and many other 1950’s decor add to the effect.

A vintage dressing table and a lampshade with tassels give the room a pretty authentic feel.

The couple bonded over their shared love of all things vintage: “We wanted to have a home that would reflect different decades,” Ellen said.

“Since I was 18, I’ve been going to flea markets and picking out things I wanted at my grandparents’ house.”
