out of date wallpapers

I papered my bathroom in 2003 with a lovely Waverly (I think) wall paper which is beginning to look very tired and I would like to re do it in the same pattern, which I love. I haven't been able to find the pattern anywhere. I've contacted Waverly (York) and sent them a photo of my wallpaper, but they don't have records of anything before 2010. There are no identifying marks on the back of the one extra roll I have.

Anyone have any idea how I can find if any of this still exists somewhere?

Thanks,
Cynthia

Once companies change designs, they sell out their old designs, get rid of remaining inventories, clear the storage spaces...and that's it.

However, wholesale places might have some leftovers. It's a long shot. If you can't find what you're looking for there, you either keep your walls as is or replace your wallpaper with some new and current design.

We always say: buy more than you need, keep the leftovers in a safe place (example: tiles), for the purpose of making repairs, replacing broken pieces, etc.

I never found wall paper held up well in bathrooms anyway. Probably due to the moisture.

I would agree, but this is a "powder room".

At this point, consider using another style wallpaper.

Powder rooms are traditionally small. Fast and easy job.
