Vintage Wallpaper

So, the vintage/graphic lover inside me prompted me to search for vintage wallpaper this afternoon. I am always blown away by the graphics of yesteryear. I think we are only recently getting back to a higher standard of graphics for our homes. I have always been attracted to pattern, but ever so much more to vintage patterns.

I wanted to share a few items that I thought were really creative. Sydney Designs over @ Etsy has created quite an impressive array of vintage wallpaper greeting cards. I think it is a great way to preserve vintage graphics, as they could be sent to a friend with a friendly note or framed for your wall! She even does custom orders that you can choose from 100+ patterns! [here] Here are two of my favorites:
Another great seller, Shabby Vintage Mom @ Etsy has found another creative way to display vintage wallpaper. This adorable little wall hanging as all things I love! [brown, pink, botanical]
Lastly, these gift tags from Butter and Sugar @ etsy are just too cute not to share! Sweet circles of vintage wall paper attached to a kraft paper colored tag. I also love the simple twine! The price is also great, only $2.50!


  1. Thanks for including my plaque in your vintage wallpaper finds. I'm loving the cards & tags too :)
    Thanks again~ you have such a sweet Blog♥♥

  2. Thanks! I believe that there is nothing that showcases the aesthetics and design of earlier years like wallpaper and fabrics. Preserving those patterns and graphics is important, for design is ever changing.
