NEW Mini Moderns wallpaper

January 5, 2011

Are you a fan of 1950s design? In love with mid-century modern style? Then have we found some wallpaper for YOU…

Mini Moderns is launching ‘Festival Wallpaper’ – an extremely cool design inspired by the 1951 Festival of Britain – the post-war exhibition of the new wave of modern British design, which celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year. If you look closely, you’ll see highlights of that exhibition on the paper – the iconic Skylon, the Dome of Discovery, the Royal Festival Hall, and the Transport Pavilion.

The wallpaper comes in 10m x 52cm rolls (£50 each) and is available in three colourways: concrete, stone, and bunting blue and red. It’s the first design in the new Mini Moderns Day-tripper collection, launching in September 2011, which will celebrate aspects of British culture, hobbies and pastimes.

I’m loving the 1950s-inspired colours on these papers. Can’t wait to see the rest of the collection later this year!  – Ellie
