Welbeck British postcard tile collection

Coastal tiles

As you put the kettle on for another cup of tea and find yourself dreaming of different times and places, fuel your fantasies with the coastal collection from Welbeck tiles

The range is inspired by old postcards and uses images from perhaps the golden age of British holiday going, featuring scenes from places like Skegness, Margate, Newquay and Barry Island amongst many others. Other tiles show the reverse of the postcards, complete with the requisite 'Wish you were here' type of messages. 

All the tiles are hand-made in Cornwall which is reflected in the price as the postcard tiles cost £40 each. They are shown in the image above alongside tiles from some of the other Welbeck ranges: full details and prices can be found online.

Wish You Were Here pin-up girl bed sheets from Sin in Linen

Sin in linen

Looking for something suitably saucy to pair with your Dupenny '50s housewives wallpaper? How about the Wish You Were Here bed sheet set, made by the wonderfully named Sin in Linen? The range was inspired by handwritten postcards and shows retro pin-up girls in various alluring poses on a black and white background. 

Sin in Linen was started by Sandy Glaze with the aim of producing slightly more adventurous bed linen. She's taken her cue from the 1940s and '50s and the collections also include rockabilly-style tattoo and leopard print designs. 

Prices for the Wish You Were Here range start at $29 for a pillow case and go up to $140 for a double duvet set. If you like the design it's also sold on a shower curtain and as a curtain panel.
