vintage vogue covers

I hosted a ‘Roaring Twenties’ birthday party last year and in my search for decor ideas I stumbled upon the Vogue (UK) magazine cover archive. This is the bees knees! I felt like I’d hit the jackpot! Not only is the archive a fascinating glimpse into the fashion, art and voice of my favourite era, but the magazine covers made for beautiful arty posters that helped set the tone for the party.

I’ve actually still got my favourites in frames (I was able to blow them up to A3 size) and they look fantastic on the wall!  Here’s a little collage. I love the shapes and colours of the art deco inspired pieces. I start a painting class next week so they serve as artistic inspiration.
