Cheap and cheerful but very midcentury

Cheap and cheerful but very midcentury

This is a mid-century wall covering that, to be honest, is best described as being perhaps colourful yet cheap and cheerful.

Such wall coverings were the mainstay of the industry and provided a lot of people with a wallpaper that fulfilled their needs by being the right colour for their room as well as being affordable, to use a modern expression, and yet was also modern in it’s appearance. Shown here as a bedroom wallpaper it is certainly not eye-catching yet it does give the room a colourful and warm glow and it looks bright and, well, yes, cheerful. If this had been produced in the 1960s, it would probably have been a successful design because it fulfils that necessary and important domestic role.
