Both my master bath and powder room need work. When I moved into my 1985-built home in 1996, my master bath was decked out in 80s plaid wallpaper and get this, a blue shag carpet! Talk about gross city! My powder room was coated in duck print wallpaper. This beige wallpaper was speckled with tiny navy ducks. The walls looked like the inside of the yellow raincoat I had when I was 10!
Needless to say, the plaid and ducks are now gone but my walls are bare. I want to re-do both bathrooms with 50s styling. My best friend is an interior designer and I know I am going to need her help.
I was browsing the Internet today and I found several websites offering vintage tile, wallpaper, and even linoleum.
One site I found, The Secondhand Rose, is located in Manhattan and their site is very fun. They offer wallpapers in several vintage patterns and linoleum flooring.
I want this wallpaper for my powder room:
I would also love to remove the vinyl flooring in my kitchen for this beauty:
Again, if I was a millionaire, I would go nuts! I think I can do the wallpaper just in the powder room for now. The average price per double roll is $70.00 USD. My master bath is big so I will more than likely wait between projects.
Have your girls ever used vintage wallpapers or flooring? Where do you find your wares? Have you found modern made stuff with vintage styles/patterns?
