Back in the 90's we had the 'feature wall' – it was when just one wall in your home got to be a different and much more interesting colour than the other walls. Then we had a wallpaper revival – and golly there have been some beautiful pattern designs emerge over the last few years as a result of that. We've also seen timber panelling make a pretty solid comeback. I don't know, but I think there's a place in our homes, bars and retail spaces for some of the good ol' aluminium ceiling and wall panelling. It's shown here in its raw metallic form, but it looks really great when painted, too.

For some people, it's the happy tune of Green Sleeves as the ice cream truck comes hurtling down the street which reminds them of their childhood. For others, it's roller skating up and down the driveway for hours on end in the afternoon, and refusing to remove said skates at dinnertime. For me, it's the smell of fresh ink, climbing on dusty piles of paper in storage rooms, and the loud CLUNK - CLUNK of the letterpress machines which takes me back to the good ol' days.

The iced coffee packaging we designed last year for One Tree Coffee Co was featured a few days back on Lovely Package. Since then the vintage-styled branding has spread like wildfire: it's been blogged, reblogged, tagged, reviewed, liked, saved, commented on, ffffound, hearted, tweeted and tumblr'd. We're also due to appear this week in the UK Lifestyle News Network.

Irina Werning has turned her obsession for vintage photographs into an amazing series of portraits. By getting her friends and family to re-enact childhood photographs, with immense attention to detail, we are left with a series of incredible and hilarious images.
"I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today"
