Lots of treasures awaited my return home yesterday… An ebay find which I’ll show soon… Barkcloth samples from Full Swing Textiles… and the best of all: Two rolls of vintage pink wallpaper from reader NYC Dorothy. She has contributed it to our community – so that it can savored for all. You see, these are the two wallpapers that hung in her mother’s kitchen and bathroom – and she wanted them to go to a good home.  Dorothy, I promise you, they are in the right place – in front of many thousands of readers who treasure these memories of the homes our own families built in postwar America. Many thanks, indeed!

Oh, and readers… just to ensure you are triply amazed: Did I mention that both of these wallpapers are on a totally high-quality (not brittle) vinyl…. and that they have gold flecks and streaks throughout? Totally swoonable.

    I am looking for wallpaper for by bathroom similar to the pink/black poodle wallpaper you show here. BUT I think what I exactly have in mind is what Kory Carroll is mentioning – pink/black poodle hair salon wallpaper. Is it possible to get rolls of this paper to put up now in my bathroom? Where? How?

    My grandmother’s bathroom had the poodle wallpaper, I love it! If I could talk my hubby into it, I would love to put some in our bathroom.

    We had the same poodle wallpaper in the “girls’ bathroom” in our house in the late 60s. I remember every detail of it!

    I am about to move into a home with a pink bathroom (sadly, not a cool 50s vintage one but just an ugly 80s one) and have decided to embrace the pink. I am going to print and frame these wallpaper images for wall art!
