Sumac Sue‘s questions about what to do with her pink tile bathroom led me to recommend wallpaper, and to launch my 2008 quest to ensure the retroworld conquer any fears and embrace this most important decorating tool.

So here are some of the wallpapers from my Miller’s Art Supply of Pittsfield, Mass. basement collection – any of which would look FABULOUS BEYOND WORDS in aka Judi’s bathroom. Want some of your own? Put your retro vibes out there, and your wallpaper will find you.

Please note: My scanner does not get pinks and reds right. Trust, the pink in these wallpapers is pretty spot-on Judi’s dubble bubble tile.

    Is anyone familiar with a vintage (probably 60’s or 70’s) bathroom wallpaper featuring simple cartoon-ish drawings of bathroom scenes such as a woman viewing herself in the mirror (her reflection gazing back in dismay), a man in scuba gear, an alien spacecraft hovering over bathtub, and similar comic scenes? My mom’s best friend is renovating her home and has this very amusing wallpaper in a bathroom, but it is damaged. I would love to find some at a reasonable price. Thanks!
