The fine art of making wallpaper by hand, in the "machine mad" 1960s

Two short, incomplete clips of making patterned wallpaper, largely by hand, in the 1960s from British Pathé: Wallpaper (1963) made by routing sycamore wood blocks hand block printing, seen again in Perfect Match (1968) where "color mixing is still a primitive pour and stir method." Bonus: Out Takes / Cuts From Cp 433 - Wallpaper, Feather Flowers And Perspex Sculpture (1963) and see also: Lino Decor (1958)

Oval and Out

A New Look for the Oval Office Obama makes his mark on the First Office. It is a different look than the office of George W. Bush and the presidents before him. And yes, the rug is gone (previously).

Switch Plates

When you reach for a light switch in North America, what you encounter is probably pretty boring. No doubt you know you could spice it up a little. Maybe you don't know just how many choices you have. The range of styles available is huge. There are some that may not have much of a market. There are others you probably wouldn't put up in the office.
