Money for... old bus tickets: Mini Moderns' new wallpaper

For everyone old enough to remember Routemaster buses as more than just novelty wedding transportation, 'Hold Tight', the new wallpaper design from Mini Moderns will spark some nostalgia.

Look closely and you'll see that as well as being a cool graphic repeat in pleasantly muddy tones, the design is made up of old-school bus tickets. Mini Moderns worked closely with the London Transport Museum, employing an original Gibson ticket machine that bus conductors used to use.

Part of the 'Day Tripper' range, it costs £45 per roll (10metres x 52cm) and comes in three colourways. Harvest Orange, Lichen (above) and Mustard. The new line launches at Tent London this September.

Here are a couple of other Day Tripper goodies:
The Whitby 'Lido' cushion (possibly my favourite cushion design ever - check out the matching wallpaper too, most striking). £35.


Fayre Wallpaper, £45 per roll (measurements as above).

Whitby mix n match porcelain £83 for a set (coming soon)
