I had powder rooms on the brain yesterday because I was ordering vintage wallpaper panels from Secondhand Rose for the powder room of my downtown project. When I went to pick them up, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos to show you the extent of their collection of vintage wallpapers. They are amazing!

The patterns like these tufted designs are amazing and are popular with not only designers but restaurant owners including Billy’s Bakery. It’s definitely worth a visit but make sure you note that they have moved from Tribeca to Fifth Avenue at 27th Street. Happy Shopping!

    HEAVEN. I could spend hours there! p.s. Loved your powder room post! I had to re-share that last photo!

    Wow. Love that they have a website, but I have to imagine nothing beats seeing it all in person.

    That is a cool store! So many papers!

    Thanks for sharing! Their website looks amazing, will have to suffice until I can make it to NYC and shop in person.

    I could stand there all day looking at patterns……but for gift wrapping!

    Roxy – I know! I couldn’t stay there long which was probably good because I might have looked through everything!

    Tracy – the mylar/silver papers looks really cool in person! I need to find a place to use them!

    Luv to Decorate – It is very cool! Glad you like it!

    Kelly – Lol! It is a lot to take in!

    Sanctuary Home – the store is so much better than the website! You must visit soon!

    A Gift Wrapped Life – that would be some very expensive wrapping paper! But you probably could copy it for wrapping. Something to think about!

    I think that I have found my second home retreat. This shop is like an old emporium; so many treasures lurking. Thanks for sharing. xo

    Heather, this store looks absolutely beautiful. You are so sweet to share it with us. Do you have any other sources in NYC for modern wallpaper remnants? I have a small project (and I’m talking itty bitty…just want to wallpaper my wardrobe door) and I’m looking for a graphic print. Thanks again for letting us know about Secondhand Rose! Have a lovely weekend.

    This is a dream…so many beautiful choices, how would I ever decide. This is a grown-up playground for design lovers. I must make a trip in to visit!

    Recently did a post on my blog (Room For Young Ones) about accent wallpaper, including some amazing Secondhand Rose finds for kids rooms: http://roomforyoungones.blogspot.com/2010/01/one-wall-wallpaper.html

    This wallpaper is amazing. Is the showroom open to the public or just designers/decorators?

    Thank you…
