Antique Bird Illustrations As Wallpaper

vintage bird illustrations as wallpaper

The first time I discovered vintage illustrations used as wallpaper was probably at an Anthropologie store. Above actual vintage illustrations were used to cover a wall via nytimes.com. The illustrations are from ‘Birds of York’ folio. I would assume the illustrations are by Elon Howard Eaton. Below photocopies of vintage bird illustrations decoupaged to the wall via countryliving.com.

  2. I love this idea! I’ve loved this since seeing sheet music used in a catalog a few years ago. Vintage bird or botanical illustrations also seem like a great alternative to wallpaper.
