As a retired nurse and self-taught graphic designer, I really love the look of the Mid Century, Atomic Era. I designed the bucket bag above to resemble a piece of fabric my grandmother had when she loved to sew. I loved the funky abstract pattern with it's many swirls the use of only 4 colors. This was typical of the Atomic Era. This is a pillow I designed and is available for purchase by following the link just below it. It is also available in light grey.
I now design duvet covers, pillows, clock faces, throw blankets, shower curtains, bucket bags and more by creating designs inspired by the Eames, Atomic Era period.

If you're a baby boomer or older, you probably remember the classic look of the Atomic Era. The funky abstracts design. The atomic era came about after WWII from the 1940's to the 1960's and began the onset of the nuclear age and the architectural style homes of Frank Lloyd Wright.
