The archives of House and Garden provide the inspiration to go back in time, with the Sixties House book by Catriona Gray picking out the best of the decade.

Published by Conran, this 224-page hardback book pulls together the trends of the decade. From Pop art to Op art, not to mention plastics, bold colours and OTT styling, this is the style of 1960s, showing how design changed to appeal to a new and more youthful market.

Catriona Gray has been through the House and Garden archive of the era to pick out the best illustrations and photographs from those magazines, which include the homes of Bridget Riley, Mary Quant, David Mlinaric, Barbara Hulanicki of Biba and David Bailey.

If you want to live like they did, you probably want to own this book. It is out now, priced at £30.
