Rose patterned wallpapers have traditionally been one of the most popular mainstays over the years. We just can't say goodbye to them for long.They have graced English walls for generations and today can be found in traditional, shabby, vintage and yes, even modern interiors. While the style might be different than what graced grandma's walls, a floral wall featuring a classic rose motif still represents the cozy romanticism of yesterday, something the masses seem to be drawn to. I can't say I like all rose patterned wallpapers but there are some rosy walls that draw me in too. I have gathered some photos that will thrill traditionalists and hopefully entice the modern crowd to consider the new rose patterned wallcoverings.
Roses are old-fashioned, homey and romantic and traditionalists love them. The trick is knowing how to choose a pattern that doesn't look dated. You want to stay away from the 80's look and choose something a little more current. Even if the color palette is soft and pretty, modern rose patterned wallpapers features bigger and bolder roses. Your vintage look will still be enhanced by a selection like this one.
I think this rose patterned wall is fabulous and works really well with vintage and antique pieces. If I were starting over today and looking for something unique and over the top I would definitively embrace this look.
Rose patterned walls have always set the stage for a vintage, traditional style.....and they still can, just in a different way. The popularity of painted furniture and brighter color palettes will help to refresh a traditional style rose wallpapered interior.

An all-over rose pattern for your walls will always be a classic look if, (and that if is extremely important), you treat the room in a more updated vintage style and not make it a throwback to times past. Even if you choose antique furniture, add in some edge so you won't get the "grandma" effect.
This rose patterned background gives the room a touch of modern and chic while keeping it feminine and comfy.
