So Eighties


This classic wallpaper may have been the only thing reminiscent of summer in the August issue of Vogue. While I am not fashionably sophisticated enough to care about winter coats in mid-July, I do love the backdrop Vogue chose for this eighties-inspired spread. (This print seems to define that era just as much as the 1940's when it originally appeared on the scene).

Of course, if I thought I could get away with putting tropical wallpaper in my own house, I might. Alas, this type of thing would look slightly ridiculous in our cozy little cottage. I will save it for that beach house someday...

I remember a room in the home of a friend that had this distinctive wallpaper! I was a teen in the 80s, so this all brings back memories...

Why are we returning to wallpaper, just at the point where I finally got the last bit of wallpaper out of my house (but I like it that way).

I know. I am totally scared to put in wallpaper because the memory of removing 10 layers of it from my last house still haunts me!

I do love that wallpaper...I know that most people think of the Beverly Hills Hotel bungalows when they see it, is it bad that I always think of Blanche Devaro's bedroom? I love Blanche by the way, this is in no way a diss.
