Somewhere between dusty pink and a pale purple, you find mauve, a classic vintage color of the early 20th century.
The mauve color family was a popular choice for use in vintage wallpaper during the 30s, 40s, and 50s and was often paired with gray and beige. While the different shades vary greatly, one thing is for sure, that muddled pink and softened plum were definitely favorites of an era gone by. Here's a closer look at some special vintage wallpapers that showcase their own version of mauve, whether as a foundation color or as the highlighting accent. Enjoy!
