1950's fabric patterns

I've been on the search for some new fabric (we've just moved into our new house and have a lot of old furniture that needs a makeover – most exciting!). So I've been trawling around looking for some inspiration and found these 1950's prints (some are original and some are just inspired by the era) from Sanderson. In the end I bought fabrics which look nothing like these (I will have to post them for you to see) but I do love these patterns a whole lot anyway.

Alphabet posters by Gumo

Look at these Alphabet posters (yes, I am a bit obsessed with the idea at the moment) by Sally & Andrew - the designers behind gumo. Apparently they love all kinds of objects from the 50's and 60's – especially ceramics. A quick cut and paste then and I've added their blog to my list… a nice one to go back to for sure.

Deadline over and time to update things around here a bit! I'd seen these illustrations a while back in Elle Decoration UK so was super delighted to stumble upon them again and see some more of Wayne Pate's work…
