Something that I come across from time to time especially when working on properties that have not been maintained, is old wallpapers. Usually found in multiple layers as they have been applied on top of each other, which although isn’t good working practise it does, to some extent, preserve these decorative beauties. I love finding a splash of colour when stripping back a room for a new wallcovering, it kind of makes the nasty job worthwhile. So a couple of samples that I have kept I shall share with you here, I’m not going to try and tell you any history behind the patterns or colours. But if you have any samples yourself I’d be very happy to see them.
