If you’re looking for some design inspiration, think vintage wallpaper. The pattern of the wallpaper in my grandmother’s kitchen is forever burned in my memory. It was a floral with navy stripes. I’ve never been daring enough to install wallpaper in my own home, but I love the designs. The wallpaper pictured above is from Secondhand Rose in New York and would look great in a little girl’s bathroom. A great site for browsing and inspiration.
