Pimlico wallpaper from Laura Ashley

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.

Cars by Tom Frost


Bristol-based artist & printmaker Tom Frost has brought together his playful retro-inspired art and love of 1950s tin toys and created these truly unique model Cars.

The Cars are made using layers of carved plywood, which are then coated in Tom's retro car screen-prints and finished with wheels made of vintage Meccano and, of course, a suitably dapper driver behind the wheel. The ultimate retro toy for the big kid in your life.

Cars are £210 each from Boxbird Gallery. See the website for more details.

Mattel’s Mad Men Barbie dolls now on sale in the UK


We first saw these back in March, but now the Mad Men Barbie dolls are available in the UK. Well, most of them.

Right now, you can order Don Draper and Betty Draper, with Joan Holloway available from next Friday. What's happened to Roger Sterling and his monogrammed suit? We don't know – we're hoping he'll be here for Christmas though.

Opt for Joan and she'll come with purple skirt suit, pen necklace and handbag. Don is suited as well having a jacket, hat, and briefcase, while Betty has a floral party dress with 'pearl' choker and clutch containing powder compact, lipstick, and comb. All are moulded out of Silkstone, a porcelain-like material and all the 11-inch figures sell for £79.99.
