The Vintage-Inspired Wallpaper Line We're Obsessing Over
Leave it to the Brits to reintroduce these old school gems.
They say everything old is new again, and this year alone has offered plenty of proof. Classic Stan Smith Adidas sneakers are the hottest footwear choice, Spice Girl-worthy crop tops are ubiquitous, and ill-fitting mom jeans are being worn, well, not as ironically as they once were. But borrowing from the not-so-distant past isn't just happening on the fashion front. In the interiors world, we've predicting that 80s pastels and plaid sofas are about to be all the rage once again.
You know what else we're calling? The second coming of vintage-inspired wallpaper patterns, especially those of the UK-based brand Sanderson. We're not talking about Made Men-era, psychedelics or monochrome toiles, but the kinds of prints and botanicals you might find in your grandmother's linen closet, a retro Miami motel, or a quirky cottage in the English countryside. You know, the kind that at first glance might seem completely questionable and outdated, but after the nostalgia sets in make you think, "Hey, I could totally live with a kitchen covered in summer strawberries!" Have we gone too far? We'll let you be the judge.
Flamingos in Turquoise and Pink would look perfect in a modern seaside shack or on the walls of a petite powder room.
Equestrian lovers, Mr. Bennet-style book hoarders, or proper outdoorsmen with a home library, Tally Ho in Evergreen and Crimson is for you.
For the summer house that's been in the family for generations, you can't go wrong with Sail Away in Sea Green.
