The fabulous fifties

Today's post is an homage to the print and pattern of the fabulous 1950s - a decade which is proving to be an enduringly popular reference point in the interiors world.
Last year we had the Heal's Rediscovers range of chairs, cushions and china inspired by Lucienne Day archive prints. Now we have the Sanderson collection of 1950s-inspired wallpapers and fabrics (pictured) which will appeal if you are a fan of bold, graphic prints. 
Yep. Guilty.

This year also marks the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain, the 1951 exhibition of ideas and innovation on London's South Bank designed to lift the spirits of the nation in the post-war period. Highlights of the exhibition included buildings such as the futuristic Skylon, the Dome of Discovery and the Royal Festival Hall (the only structure still standing today) which feature on the very retro new Festival wallpaper by Mini Moderns.
