Retro Interiors at Laura Ashley

I was sent the recent Laura Ashley catalog in the mail the other day. I don't think I've bought anything there in over two years, but I'm pleased they did because it is drop dead gorgeous. And in particular... I'm talking WALLPAPER. We are in So much trouble when we eventually get a place of our own because I struggle to choose just one of these.
I do apologise that I resorted to photographing the pages since I couldn't pick them up from the website

This wallpaper is clearly designed to bring a 50s/early 60s feel to a place, but in small doses it could lend itself to a bonkers 30s look as well

Isn't this one pretty, just enough colour to be interesting and I think could cover a multitude of eras depending on what colours you bring out of it

Clearly a streamlined 30s look, which is my favourite kind of interiors decoration. I am loving everything about this lay out, from the chandelier, the blue sofa, the single chair, the mirror, to the coffee table.

I'm in lust with this floor lamp, though I would love a chandelier hanging like sparkly droplets instead of the light shade. I think it would finish the striking arch off better. The upholstery on the chair is also lovely

A bit of lovely lavender in your bedroom? and one Mahoosive mirror on the right. Swoon.

Here's my lamp again in a different setting.


Yes please. Windows like THAT in my dining room!


And here is the best pic of my favourite wallpaper. Isn't that lovely?

  6. I'll fight you for those windows!! I've always had a bit of a thing for Laura A, although I prefered them years ago when she was alive and doing the design. Not the mega over the top 80's stuff but the more peasanty era.
