Retro Wallpaper

I love a spot of wall paper.  It divides people.  It certainly divided me and my partner when we had to scrape the bastard stuff off of the ceilings of our ENTIRE HOUSE.  Anyway, at the end of the day I think a well chosen pattern totally changes a room.  Because I’m such a fan of anything mid century I’ve been trawling the internet for a while now looking for some of the best catches.  I love a bargain so most of these sites have cheap to reasonably prices stuff.  I thought maybe some of you might be looking for similar stuff so maybe these links will be useful for you.

German based company Wallpaper from the 70's “have a great stock of interesting patterns-they ship to Old Blighty and only charge £4.50 per order.  I particularly like this one modern combination;

Although in fairness, dark grey is pretty cool at the mo, so I could totally see this one in my bedroom.

You certainly CAN do it when you B&Q it at these prices.  I’m a little bit in love with this brown geometric design.  I could see it with some über modern furniture.

Maybe a bit too much for some, this paper is quite purist.  I’d have it, maybe as an accent background to pictures in a frame?


I love a bit of kitsch. I have quite a lot of this hidden around my house (my partner does not).  This wallpaper is ace as far as I’m concerned.  I’d have it in an over the top under stairs guest toilet.  

And finally, the real deal.  This amazing website has somehow managed to get their hands (literally - how have they done it!?) on significant amounts of the original real deal stuff.  It’s not ridiculously expensive so I guess if you were only papering the one wall it may not work out too much.
