So know that we’ve given you a complete history of Vera Neumann, what’s new out there in the stores this summer? The big news seems to be the Vintage Vera “Farmer’s Market” collection at Crate & Barrel [no longer available]. You know I love the rich cobalt blue — my 2012 Retro Renovation Color of the Year. The orange, chartreuse and grass green — all lovely, as well. There are more pieces to the collection. A great hostess gift or quick, pretty-cheap-and-cheerful kitchen pick-me-up.
Vintage nursery rhyme wallpaper — now reproduced by Bradbury & Bradbury
Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard surely had shelves and drawers wallpapered in whimsical vintage wallpaper -- just like one of these four new/old designs from Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpaper now being reproduced based on original document designs in their archives.
