Decorated with floral wallpaper 1950s style!

Pia AnderssonPattern, Inspiration, Interior design

Do you live in a 50s home, and want to retain the style, or are simply in love with the colours and patterns from that period? Plastic was big, and wear it out and throw it away was the slogan.

In interior decor, the in-materials included marble (Kolmård marble), plastics, mosaics and linoleum in check patterns or beautiful parquet floors in oak. Exotic woods were a major trend, such as mahogany and teak. Even door handles for interior doors were in teak. Design was often straight and unadorned. The walls were decorated with colourful wallpaper, frequently in floral patterns or a more restrained and graphic style.

Pia AnderssonInspiration, Pattern, Interior design

I find inspiration in the clear blue sky and the slowly-rising temperature. But also in the garden which is coming to life, sparkling in strong colours we haven’t seen for a while. When the temperature rises, I start thinking about holidays, the sea, the beach, walking through the sand and a cold ice cream. This is the time of the year that starts me thinking about summer cottages and how to decorate them. Imagine decorating your own summer cottage by the sea, using crisp colours like red, blue and white. Classic stripes on the walls, with self-coloured linen fabrics wafting in the summer breeze, as well as other checks and stripes. Here are some pictures that inspire me to dream and long for my own summer cottage.
