When I was ten my bedroom was to be painted, and I was allowed to choose the colour and choose wallpaper for a "feature wall". I chose MAUVE, and the wallpaper was also mauve and sported "mod" girls in miniskirts who appeared to be caught in suspended animation while dancing. I remember that one of them had a "pixie cut" (as I did) and hoop earrings. My bed was against that wall so I stared at that wallpaper quite a bit- you could see that the paper had manually been printed upon because there were inconsistencies and parts that were slightly goopier than others, and was as flat, unglossy, and chalky-looking as could be. This is *not* what it looked like, but this is generally the style:
The colour mauve, generally speaking, now makes me want to dry heave, but I do remember how much I loved that colour and that wallpaper at the time. Take a gander at a short video about Secondhand Rose, a woman with a deep smoky voice who sells vintage wallpaper in NYC. Apparently the store has been closed, but you can order online.
