I have been on the hunt for affordable, vintage style wallpaper – a major reader want. In my first expedition I found this selection of Raymond Waites wallpaper that I think would be good for 40s or early 50s bedrooms, family rooms, offices, dens and kitchens — and which cost just over $20 a roll.
The roses-on-stripes to me are very classic in a 40s or 50s girls’ bedroom – pretty in pink to be sure. The plaids and other designs all have a tea-towel feel that puts them in to the vintage design camp. These are each about $22/roll via americanblinds.com.
