It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE vintage interior design. The elegant aesthetics of the past offers a sense of history that transports me back in time that more modern creations simply can’t match. The best thing about vintage interior design is that you can (and should) have a mix of strong bold colours - intense greens, yellows, blues, reds, oranges and teal colours that when mixed together give you a sense of nostalgia… and if you’re an early 70’s child like me, these colours will undoubtedly bring a smile to your face and the memories flooding back in.

THE OLD HAS INSPIRED MY NEW
So when it came to my latest wallpaper collections I had to draw my inspiration from vintage interior design. My loves are the Victorian and Art Deco era’s which are seen in all of my Nature’s Glamour and Days of Old collections, which is where the ‘Glamour’ came from. Vintage to me has always been glamourous. From the beautiful jazz singers and their timeless voices, to the fashion that adorned their stunning hour glass figures. I feel so blessed that so many love my Australia wallpaper designs.

AND LET'S NOT FORGET THAT VINTAGE IS ECO-FRIENDLY
Purchasing and acquiring something that has lived for many years and recycling it for your home and possibly passing it onto the next generation is the best form of sustainability and the bid to lead more of an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
GO BOLD OR GO HOME!
This phrase was recently said to me by a lovely client who purchased Octavia in deep blue for her bedroom. I can’t wait to see pics of the install that is a feature amongst a gorgeous vintage chaise.
