This piece in the Washington Post's Express says wallpaper is hip again. The article quotes Heather Cole of wallpaper company Bradbury & Bradbury saying:"It's very contemporary to paper one wall. It's like an art installation." I have bad flashbacks to the 1970s wallpaper hanging in my house in New Jersey growing up, but after seeing these 1950s Atomic Age patterns and these from the 1960s, I may be willing to cover up some of my white walls.
Modern Snob is for discerning fans of mid-century modern and modern design. In my work on my other blog, Modern Capital, I come across many cool items that do not necessarily fit in with the blog's focus of modern real estate, design and events in the Washington, D.C. area. Modern Snob will allow me to highlight modern news and information well beyond the confines of the Beltway. E-mail me tips and feedback.
