original 70's wallpaper





During the weekend I stayed with one of my good friend’s grandparents. I have heard many stories about these people and they outlived expectations by far. They were extremely welcoming and were more than happy to share tall tales of their migration the New Zealand (via Australia on a flying boat) from Holland. One little treasure I couldn’t help but record was the amazing wallpaper they had in their home. It was in mint condition and I was informed it was original from the 70’s. I’m not sure what I will do with the patterns but I hope to use them for some kind of design; maybe a new blog design…

Anyway I thought it would be nice to share with you.
