50s Wallpapers

A bold and iconic collection of wallpapers, the 50s Collection celebrates a decade of design which transformed the boundaries of interior decoration.

The Festival of Britain in 1951 took place after a tough post war era which saw a ration-weary public bored with wartime dreariness and lack of variety. The optimistic spirit driven by the Festival led the way for new inventiveness and a fresh contemporary look. Out went the drab furnishings of the past, in came bold bright colours such as vivid pillar-box red, kingfisher blues and acid greens. Advances in science such as atomic power and the discovery of the structure of DNA were echoed in design, with molecular patterns being a huge influence on textile designers at the time. Sixty years on this style is still modern and vibrant.
