Dad’s Army 1940′s Decor Scheme – Film Friday

Welcome to another edition of Film Friday! As a great lover of movies, every week on this blog, I choose a film and create a decor scheme around it – to help you capture the look or style in your home! This week, to mark the release of the eagerly-awaited adaptation of Dad’s Army, I’ve put together a special 1940′s styled decor scheme, to help you transform your interiors…

Dad’s Army is one of the best-loved British sitcoms of all time! Set during World War Two, it focuses on the misadventures of the hapless Home Guard of Walmington-On-Sea. Now, in 2016, thirty-nine years after the last episode aired, a movie adaptation is being released, with an A-list cast. Toby Jones is filling Captain Mainwaring’s boots, whilst Bill Nighy stars as second-in-command Sergeant Wilson. The film also stars Michael Gambon and Catherine Zeta-Jones! In the 2016 adaptation, the Home Guard receive a report that there’s a spy in their midst, and they must winkle out who it is.

Capture the vintage charm and style of the world of Dad’s Army with these 1940′s decor ideas…
