Vintage-Style Sitting Area
Striped chairs stand out against the antique-looking wallpaper.
Brand new wallpaper looks vintage when sanded to mimic the elegance of age. Traditional patterns like classic florals work best, enhancing the illusion of an old world interior. Use a handheld power sander with fine sandpaper to wear down the wallpaper in random spots, fading the print in some areas more than others for authenticity. Complete the look by painting trim a dusky historic hue.
