Retro Wallpaper: Going Back in Time with Style

Renovating your living room was a real joy ride for me. It opened possibilities that I’ve never imagined that exists. I am serious, I found myself, planing my room from scratch. From the new sofa, table and chairs up to the wallpapers. Well, I will be honest, I was over hyped about choosing a wallpaper. Here is my personal experience, when I searched for retro wallpaper for sale and I had an amazing, fun and exciting time of choosing a new wallpaper for my living room.

Retro Wallpaper

Firstly, I made my mind – time to go back in time (woosh, woosh, Inception style). My favourite time is the 80s, the period when I was born. In my head, I listened to Elton John, AHA, Queen, well simply I was in the right mood. The internet is full of history trends and especially the ones from the 80s. That’s why I have made a list of my favourite types that I strongly recommend to you.

Floral retro wallpapers

There is no greater feeling than a retro wallpaper done with floral pattern combination. This wallpaper uses a lot of colours offering you a wide spectre of charm, aesthetic and of course dynamic in your room. Usually, they are attached inside the kitchen, or a hipster’s dinning room (just like mine). You will feel warm and fulfilled sitting in your room, eating or watching TV, with your eyes resting.

Interlocking Rings Pattern home

This type was used at the start of the 80s, offering a symmetric and interlocking design. If you want to renovate your bathroom then this is the retro style to go with. Sitting your bath tub, drinking margaritas and enjoying the peaceful and revealing atmosphere that this vintage wallpaper offer are simply divine.

Platinum rings pattern

Well here is my favourite ones. When I searched for retro wallpaper for sale this was the one I was instantly attracted to. It offered classy but retro style. It goes with every style nearly, and trust me, I asked a couple of home designers and they agreed. With the warmer colours and intimate after effect, this is the wallpaper that will make your dream living room come true.


In the end, it is all personal choice. However, in general, the vintage style wallpapers are something cool and awesome for your home. It will make your guests enjoy their stay in your home and even get a little bit jelly and ask you “Where did you get that awesome wallpaper?”. Share your experience and make every home perfect.
