This is why if you are a wallpaper newbie, you should do some homework before you dive into the sea of infinite patterns, clours, and materials.
With the the discovery of new materials and the latest advancements in printing technology, coating, adhesives and so on you are bound to find a wallpaper that exactly matches your taste, style, and personality that will allow you to create the home of your dreams.

Recently, growing trend among home owners is vintage design wallpaper. This type of wallpapers includes reproduction of patterns that used to be printed between the 1939s and the 1970s. A vintage design wallpaper can take you on a trip to the past just buy entering the room in which they are hanged while including the all the high-tech features of a modern wallpaper.
Here is a list of some of my favourite vintage wallpaper designs that have also stood the test of time and will continue to be trendy for many years to come.
- Floral Prints are the wallpapers you probably remember from your grandparent’s house. There are so many vibrant floral wallpaper prints that can add freshness to your home.
- Geometric prints on the other hand have this groovy 70s vibe and they are a perfect choice for fun loving people who aren’t afraid to mix things up a little.
- Polka dots can look both modern and vintage, depending on what size and colour you pick. Larger dots with more colours have more of a modern feel, but if you are going for vintage you should choose uniform dots with no more than two colours.
- Stripes are a pattern that will never go out of style. The come in so many variations and you can achieve the look of practically any style throughout history.
- Brick wallpapers probably don’t quite fit this list, but actual brick wall design is a classic look and with today’s printing techniques they can be made to look so realistic that they are a great alternative to building a real brick wall.
