Retro revival - geometric wallpaper may provoke a smile.

September 26, 2014

I had the best bedroom ever when I was a teenager. Orange flowery wallpaper, sheer orange curtains and polyester orange bedspreads that would perpetually give you an electric shock. The mood was upbeat and effervescent, it felt like I was living inside a bottle of fanta.

Years later, now the trend for walls embraces the muted mushroom, I long for a splurge of colour. My Dad would regularly paste and then hang fresh stylish designs to affordably revamp our decor. Enter Delilah Devine, whose collection of vintage wallpapers some of which she sourced from her Grandmother's garage, glorify the iconic flying swallows and ducks that graced the lounge rooms of the 1950s. Go on, add some of that geometric wallpaper renowned for provoking a smile. You can still keep your mushroom theme.
