Yesterday, Nicole at Making it Lovely posted a photo of some vintage wallpaper she found on ebay and is saving for her daughter’s “big girl” room. It got me thinking about the wallpaper in my first childhood home.
I remember that wallpaper so vividly. It hung on the wall at the top of the landing when you first walked in the door. Vines wound up the wall with flowers in oranges, brick reds, and shades of blueish teal. Mom & Dad used to call it the “killer vines”; clearly not their choice of wallpaper. CORRECTION: They put it up but “grew” on them and came down 7-8 years after installing it.
You can see it in the background here.
The detail –
I can’t imagine it’s a widely appealing design but I still kind of love it. And I kind of want to find a few rolls of this to hang in a nook or wall here. Is that crazy?
Does anyone recognize the pattern or designer/brand?
What do you remember fondly from your childhood home?
