For light and bright 50-influenced wallpaper, without a huge price tag attached, Schoner Wohnen's Dandelion wallpaper is perfect.
2010 is the 150th anniversary of Sanderson and an appropriate time for the Very Sanderson retrospective exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London.
The exhibition looks at their wallpaper and textile designs from 1860 up to the present day and so acts as a visual reminder of tastes in interior decoration, from Arts and Crafts, through to Pop and the current retro revival. The company has worked with a massive array of talented designers over its history and the exhibition includes work by people like Christopher Dresser, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Lucienne Day, Zandra Rhodes and Pat Albeck. The recent success of Fiona Howard's Dandelion Clocks design is also included in the exhibition. The array of patterns in the show are sure to inspire a spot of interior redecoration in your own home.
The exhibition is on until 13 June 2010 and entrance is £6.50 for adults.

Sanderson's Dandelion design has proved to be amazingly popular. Their 1950s take on florals has itself been much imitated: in fact we mentioned it just last week in relation to the Next Alpine Meadow range.
Fans of the design will be pleased to hear that they are now producing it on a rug, a classy tufted wool number in the blue/green colour combination.
The price? Well, you know it's not going to be bargain basement. It's available for £595 but will hopefully keep on looking stylish for years to come.
