Second Hand Rose specializes in original vintage wallpaper patterns. Wallpaper in the attic of the store, represent the world’s largest collection of vintage wallpaper. I went there to scope out some potential vintage wallpapers that would suit my historic house built in 1750. I found a ton of great wallpaper that was super groovy, kitchy, and colorful. I didn’t find so many historic papers that would fit an old house like mine. If I had a more modern house that needed to be infused with some serious character I would head to Second Hand Rose in a heartbeat.
Check out there huge library of wallpaper samples organized into different style portfolios which the staff will happily help you navigate. I had a lot of fun just flipping through the books even though I didn’t find anything for my house. I was intrigued by the girl sitting next to me who was choosing crazy and wild prints. Check out some of my finds above and below. Second Hand Rose has a website that lists just a few wallpapers that have in stock. You have to go to the store to view their entire stock and get the full experience.
