Pretty Nostalgic is a bi-monthly home and lifestyle magazine that celebrates vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living. We passionately support independent British producers and love seeking out unique, eclectic homes and meeting people who love life and live by their own rules. The magazine is packed with inspiration to help make your house a home, to fill your kitchen with homegrown and foraged food, to inspire you to reuse and upcycle and to make every day an adventure. It is a handbook for creative, curious and resourceful folk who yearn for a simple, stylish and sustainable lifestyle.
Each issue is filled with beautiful illustrations and photographs of inspiring homes, gardens, food and fashion with hints and tips to help you to embrace nostalgic ways of living. It is written, designed and printed in the UK by our own passionate, independent magazine team. Pretty Nostalgic Magazine is aimed at those of us who:

What you say about us
I love all your blogs, they inspire me so much…Your book is my favorite decorating book in the whole wide world, I must send you pictures of my home to show you how much your style and book are reflected in my home…. My style of decorating has always been outside the box and it is so nice to see others with similar taste. I want you to know how much you have affected me and my life in such a positive way.

I am very much looking forward to receiving the magazines and book, my friend recommended you after she met your team at a recent craft show where she sells her items. She lent me No 5 and 6 to read and I found it amazing, your magazines are so interesting to read and I’m so glad I have finally found a magazine that suits me, all the pages are beautifully laid out. Well worth the money so keep up the good work!
I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving Pretty Nostalgicover the past 12 months and thanks for reminding me again to re-subscribe – which I have now done, for the next 2 years! Look forward to receiving issue 7 and please, please don’t change what you do, because it’s brilliant!
Your magazine is an absolute delight. I discovered it quite by chance when I gave the larger book to a friend as a Christmas gift. Until then I didn’t know of the existence of a magazine. I bought this book from Cooper & Cooper in Hungerford, Berkshire – my favourite shop in Hungerford. As I have subscriptions to other magazines I normally pass them on to the GP surgery. Pretty Nostalgic will never be passed on but stay in a pile in the guest room for all our friends to enjoy who come to stay with us.
