Ryann is a lover of kitsch, with a sharp sense of wit … and yes, a pig called Norma Jean. Her Instagram grid is not only full of her fabulous retro home but also captions that will make you laugh out loud, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love seeing a cute pig popping up now and again? She is an impulsive, compulsive vintage collector … definitely our kind of girl!
We are kicking off 2020 with the fabulous Aisling, a self-confessed vintage addict, whose self-build home is crammed full of amazing thrifted finds, vintage furniture and eclectic art.

This week we have the 2nd instalment of our two-part feature on the fabulous duo behind Instagram’s #theretroroulette.
