That's ready made kitsch, someone else has done it for you. When your decor looks odd like mine, it's a reflection on me, and I don't want someone else picking what furniture will make my house look 'properly retro'. Of course shops like the retro one & books about other people's kitsch homes are fabulous places to steal ideas, but put your own twist on them! Back to the placemats, an eBay buy, so not as much a trophy as if I'd found them buried in a pile of magazines in a charity shop. Six separate prints on hard table mats, I remember my own granny having something similar. They came in a hard box, so are in as new condition, so I don't use them, just display them. My favorite is definitely the 60's orange hued photo of the canal boat.
