Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson ~ Timeless florals
Wall paper is a design element that adds texture, depth and instant character to a space. With flowers growing in the gardens, nature inspires us to have a little floral infusion in our home interiors.
This room is beautiful. It looks like it could of been papered along time ago or yesterday. Such a timeless space.
Wrapping the paper all the way up the to the ceiling is charming. I can see this in a attic room, the angled roofline gives it such a cozy feel.
I love this little dresser cozied up in front of the floral paper!
The barrel ceiling and the wall paper here is just lovely. This paper has a real vintage vibe, maybe it is!
You probably will come across one of these in your vintage shopping! It is a wood block printing stamp. Block printing was a standard method of producing wall paper until the early 20th century. It is still used in small artisanal settings, for cloth designs. If you find one of these they are so cool to display or even try to stamp some fabric.
Coordinating a piece of furniture is a chic way to pull together the space. Really be sure you love the pattern!
My design tip:If your not sure about wall paper in your space, you might try lining some cabinets in the back or inside of a closet for starters! There is removable wallpaper for rental properties.
Have a beautiful weekend! Keep your eye out for vintage wallpaper!
