Wonderful vintage style wallpaper for a 40s 50s or 60s bedroom



DOESN’T THIS MAKE YOU WANT TO BE 10 AGAIN — when no one questions why you would want a bedroom that is sweet sweet sweet?

The wallpaper is Lily of the Valley by Thibaut, and it’s available in 7 colorways – including yellow, light blue, even coral. I love the soft pastels the best, I think…. This is so perfectly vintage.

    All of this talk of wallpaper is starting to tempt me. I remember similar wallpaper in a cousin’s bedroom back in the 60s — it had sprigs of lilacs. Very dreamy.

    That brings back memories of my girlhood bedroom. It had pale yellow wallpaper with a subtle basket weave pattern and daisy’s scattered across the pattern. My mom bought matching fabric and made pinch-pleat drapes. I had a white/yellow/green knitted “ripple” zig zag pattern afghan on the bed. I wish I had pictures. *sigh*

    My 60’s bedroom (I was around 10) was wallpapered with white background & covered with lilac bushes/trees. I had lilac colored bedspread, canopy, & curtains. My favorite color. I wish I had pictures, too. The pink lily of the valley is beautiful!

    I have no shame about my love of pink – I would happily put this wallpaper up today! And I’m 31 years older than 10. (Also, my livingroom upholstery is pink).
