Unique Wallpaper Honors Space Travel

After designer Elizabeth Kelly of Studio Print Works bought an old farmhouse, she became enamored with the crumbling wallpaper left behind in a boy’s room. She saved several pieces and approached Studio Print Works to recreate the images, resulting in a new wallpaper collection called “Blast Off.”
Part of the WallpaperCollective.com, the retro-inspired “Blast Off” pays homage to something that has enthralled kids and adults for decades: space travel.

“From Buck Rogers to Star Wars to Avatar, our love affair with space has inspired designers for half a century, and our appetite for cosmic iconography never ends,” writes Carrie Leber of Leber PR.
Priced at $225/roll, the “Blast Off” wallpaper features artfully detailed scenes of a rocketship and astronauts working with Sputnik. The whimsical design is ideal for a child’s room, yet the muted colors and sophisticated artwork lend a vintage flair that complements a variety of home decor.
“Blast Off” is part of the WallpaperCollective.com, a company “that specializes in artisianal wallpaper designs from around the world,” according to the media kit. “Founder Cindy Weil is on a constant quest for the most interesting, clever, hip and beautiful wallpapers she can find.”
Numerous styles are available, including animal prints, art deco, floral, foil, retro, tropical, lacquer and more.

    It is really a nice animated video. I like it. It is about our need of housing. Very good idea.
