I always joke that I use the newest, most modern, high-tech equipment to enjoy old, monophonic, low fidelity content.

See THis? That's me, that is:

Personally, I'd be content to have my home recreated in a 1940s style, unfortunately dh is not on board. I look at all these modern electronics as simply being more things to go wrong and costing a lot of money to fix - or more likely in our throw away society - replace. I was perfectly content with my landline phone, then with my "dumb" flip phone, and now my Smartphone does things that makes me believe it's possessed because I know I don't have the technological sense to do anything with it other than basic commands. The second day I had it, it erased every contact I had. :confused: Even the "geniuses" at Apple were at a loss as to why it happened. I still write things down with a pen on paper rather than putting it in my phone. I guess I'm officially an old fogey because I long for the simpler times of the good old days.
What you could do is collect a few knick-knacks here and there. Like a period bathrom scale, or something in the kitchen like a vintage coffee grinder, or perhaps an English tea set, with a teapot. You could display a non working period phone and when your DH gets used to it, have it wired in. There's quite a selection of faux vintage kitchen scales on the market, or you could get the real thing on E-Bay.
