Drum roll, please: Announcing 4 new vintage 1950s Atomic wallpapers from Bradbury & Bradbury, launched on RetroRenovation.com today. Finally, our days of wallpaper deprivation are coming to an end. The images speak for themselves: These papers — along with Atomic Doodle, Googieland and the four 1940s papers that B&B introduced last month — are a tremendous addition to our postwar decorating arsenal. And, they couldn’t be coming from a more respected company. While I am not going to classify them as inexpensive, they are certainly a value well worth it… silk screened by hand in the U.S.A.… a true Art treasure that will endure in your home for generations to come.

Be sure to read on to the next post, a special interview with Stephen Bauer, artistic director and owner of Bradbury & Bradbury. If you’re into mid century – which you must be if you’re reading this blog! – I think you will find it fascinating.

Enjoy — here are each of the new papers, in all colorways, along with some context from Stephen:


Boingo
:
“A slightly conservative pattern, but still with that casualness and playfulness that many patterns from that era exhibit. It is peppered with metallics so it has a nice sparkle to it as you pass by.”

Interlock:

“This is our nod to the strict Modernists in the house, being very clean in feel and silvery. I think the pattern might have been inspired by Japanese patterns as it resembles some I’ve seen.”

Island:
“Well what’s a self respecting Fifties interior without a tropical tiki inspired room? And what’s a tiki room without a beautiful tiki wallpaper in it? Nothing but mosquitoes and humidity. The various coloring combinations of “Island” also will really complement the vintage rattan you’re decorating with.”

Gee-Gee:

“Fun for the Modernists, but with a little more sense of humor to it…which we like.”
