Fabric: 1950s please

12 Nov

My new vintage curtains depicting a lighthearted medieval scene

Oh, do I love fabric,

especially the kind that has either a fun and colourful design from both the 1950s’ era, and today (most probably inspired from the ’50s!); and, also I love Art Nouveau, (then, a close 2nd) Art Deco prints.  (The 1930s are known for their bright and cheerful colours too).

I couldn’t resist these adorable curtains (above photo) which feature houses, castles, knights riding horses over bridges, ships on open seas and windmills………..er, could this be Dutch?

Above and below: photographs of other vintage ’50s / ’60s textiles (I didn’t buy, sadly). 

Leaves are always a great subject.

Mexican guitars…birds and boats.

Strange looking folk.  But weirdly cute.

And, we never tire of flowers.

I love the stories that some fabrics vividly tell.

Do you like any of these?  🙂
