Bradbury & Bradbury launches its new collection of 60s wallpapers: The Mod Generation

Hot off the presses… or off the wallpaper printers…: Bradbury & Bradbury’s “The Mod Generation” of wallpapers.

I just heard from Stephen Bauer overnight and wanted them to be on the web on Retro Renovation first!

Here’s the story:

We’re talking about that generation, that turbulent era, emerging from the conservative prosperity of the 1950s and soon ushering in civil rights demonstrations, flower children and man’s journey to the moon. This energetic collection of patterns mirrors some of the radical shifts in graphic design that also sprung out of those tumultuous times. So whether you’re “feeling groovy” or strictly modern, we’ve got you covered.

Stephen adds in his email:

Some of them are pretty electric, but with most of these we recommend hanging only one wall as a “feature” or “accent” wall, like a huge piece of art! Take a look when you have some time and let me know what you think!

Here’s what I think: Awesome! My favorite: Moody Blue — as I was always a Flower Power Child — although I love the orange best – click through on their site to see all the colorways. What about you, readers? … Click here to get the Bradbury & Bradbury site.

    I love these papers, but the manufacturers are really overpricing these. Wow! I may use them anyway because they are SO cool!

    You know, you can use ANY wrapping paper as wallcovering. Just apply spray adhesive to the wall & cover away! This opens up a whole-new array of design possibilities.
