Vintage wallpaper portrays the things and events of the past and often make use of filters to make the design look as old and torn prints or photographs. What constitutes a vintage or retrospective wallpaper however is defined by its design and appearance. For one, vintage wallpapers always appear discolored, torn, crumpled, soiled or weathered. Spotting a vintage wallpaper therefore is easy because of its old look.

When designing vintage wallpapers, designers often use a grungy or soiled textures. Aside from that, they also use faded colors and hues associated with the long gone time. This technique used by artists helps the viewers recall a popular culture, lifestyle, fashion, or anything popular from the past. Designers also make use of Photoshop brushes that are designed to add vintage or grunge effects in a snap. We even see retro themes for WordPress and they are popular as they are great for setting up unique and modern websites.

Indeed, a cursory glance of a vintage wallpaper would make us recall in an instant, the things existing in the past. A picture of a cowboy with his characteristic boots in yellowish brown old paper texture, together with the distinctive grunge and old fashion typography for example, would remind us of the wild wild west in the 1800s. Vintage wallpapers therefore are artworks that fossilize culture and history into graphic images. Thus, a vintage wallpaper can reminded us of The Roaring 20s, The Terrible 30s, The Furious 40s, The Fearful 50s, The Soaring 60s, The Shifting 70s, The Techno-Edged 80s, The Cyber 90s, The Uncertain 20s and beyond. Of course, a private life of a particular person is also a good subject of vintage wallpapers. So, for your enjoyment and inspiration, we are giving you these glamorous vintage wallpapers that you will surely love.
