Pimlico wallpaper from Laura Ashley

Pimlicowp_medium
Laura Ashley are world famous for a certain kind of romantic style. This Pimlico wallpaper goes back to the company's extensive archive to reproduce some of their most familiar type of imagery. 

The wallpaper is covered with photographs taken from their most influential moment in women's fashions: there's Edwardian-style dresses and puff sleeves, smock dresses and maxi skirts. If you're a fan of the Laura Ashley look, you're sure to find plenty to inspire you or maybe to evoke some memories in this wallpaper. 

Though the paper is shown here in black and white, it can also be bought in a pink tinted version – perfect for those who like to look at the past through the rose tinted spectacles of nostalgia. Don't want it over an entire wall? The design is also available on photo albums and hat boxes. 

The wallpaper costs £22.40 a roll.

Capital Carboot sale in Pimlico, London every Sunday

Pimlico car boot

We do love a good rummage at a carboot sale here on Retro To Go. Central London's got a new sale to add to the calendar, with the Capital Carboot salewhich takes place in Pimlico every Sunday (Easter, Christmas and New Year excepting).

The organisers aim to bring the car boot sale 'into the twenty-first century' and the site at Pimlico Academy offers both indoor and outdoor stalls. However, it's still the familiar mixture of interior goods and clothing and all the fun of the hunt on offer.

The fair opens to the trade at 12.30 and to the public from 1pm and closes at 4pm. Entry costs £3 for shoppers, or you can add them on Facebook or Twitter for free entry.
