It’s interesting how trends and fashion is circular. The various stages are – avant-garde, trendy, mainstream, cheesy, totally out of fashion… and then about 10 years later – vintage. Vintage is all about nostalgia and rehashing various past trends charged with sentimental value, and wallpapers are no exception to this.
You’ll have seen it everywhere, retro style wallpapers are making a killing on the home deco scene. Whether its vintage prints, worn building materials or just plain old school wallpaper, here are a few which might inspire you!
