50s Inspiration for Your Home

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2012) - Fifties fashion is huge. With the men and women of Mad Men hitting style icon status and the hotly anticipated remake of the Great Gatsby we're all a flutter for 50s nostalgia.

It's not just the catwalk, however, which has delved back in time, with many current interior design trends taking their cue from this stylish time.

50s inspired window dressings

Sarah Quilliam, head of product design for Hillarys says "The 50s were a period of charm, simplicity and optimism and an inspiration for many of today's designs.

"Our infatuation with vintage style shows no sign of diminishing as all things British and 1950s are enjoying an enthusiastic revival.

"This is reflected in a jump in demand for our chintzy and floral fabrics, many of which draw on inspiration from this era when prints and colours were derived from nature and muted shades of green, orange and yellow."
