Are you BOLD enough for retro wallpaper? …………I love my retro home and endeavour to make it as comfortable as possible yet giving it that individual touch. I find a wallpaper can offer that uniqueness and blast of colour that I love and gets noticed. Bold and bright is what I tend to go for but finding exactly what I want hasn’t always been easy! Recently I discovered ‘yuyu designs’.
(www.yuyudesigns) I now have the most fabulous walls and yet to see anyone else with the same design in their home. It wasn’t cheap but worth every penny to funk up my home life. A lot of examples of retro wallpaper are large bold patterns with splashes of colour so probably best to keep them to a feature wall so as not to over power and detract from the other retro items dotted about. I have fire places and using it on a chimney breast or in the alcoves gives a really great effect. Also when purchasing original vintage rolls its worth remembering ‘have you got enough?’ I have made this mistake thinking I have three rolls then forgetting about pattern matching. If your’e lucky enough to find enough rolls then be bold and go for it, impress your friends and give them something to talk about. Who knows you may even inspire them to do the same! The best compliment is when others ‘copy’ you, I used to find it a bit annoying but now I see it as I have inspired others.
