More Vintage Wallpaper Samples

I've been organizing and sorting Madeline's Memories and when I came across the two giant wallpaper sample books I decided to flip through one and pick some more pages out to share with you.  They are all quite beautiful.

Love these!  Blue flowers on an ivory background and the same pattern with purple flowers and a white background.  Would be pretty in a bedroom.
Love the vibrant colors!

I have noticed that turquoise will be a big color this spring again.

This pattern is called "Mode Moderne" and sold for $1.79 per single roll, with a matching border for 12 cents per single yard.  Which color is your favorite?
More pink.

Love this pattern and color.  This is a fabric sample that matches.
Faux brick!

Two old fashioned "scene" patterns and the coordinating fabric swatch.
