Wallpaper can be daunting to shop for, commit to and hang. But when you do it correctly, it really MAKES a room. We promise. In case you missed our post on the impact it can bring in to a room, click through here to read more. It not only provides a big pattern that creates impact but it actually makes the rest of the room easier to design because you have a pattern, color, motif or design that leads the rest of the room.
We are back for the THIRD time where we scoured the internet to pull together some of our favorite sources (both the ones that we use time and time again and a few that were new to us). With some of the patterns being discontinued, some new ones being introduced to the market, and so many new artisans creating beautiful prints that we love, we figured it was time to update the roundup. So, folks, here are 390 of our favorite wallpaper patterns and murals in alphabetical order. Tuesday just got a whole lot better.
These guys are exactly what they say they are; a little bit abnormal and a little bit amazing. Emily has hung quite a handful of these in her old office for our opening party and everyone couldn’t get enough of them. They have reintroduced a lot of the classics in some more muted colors and we love the playful aspect of them.
1. Analog Nights Eclipse | 2. Cosmic Splash Astro | 3. Cactus Spirit Mist | 4. Anemone Moonstone | 5. Secret Language Mariana | 6. Gameland Army | 7. Analog Nights Heather | 8. Herbario Canary | 9. Jungle Dream Glint
This has been one of our favorite sources for fun, fresh and playful patterns. They all come in a variety of colorways and Emily loved her Shadowcat pattern so much that she used it the Cattery project she did back in 2014. Looking back on that project is so much fun and she says she is still very into the pattern of the paper.
It might not be a secret to you, but if it is…here is our big secret: Anthropologie sells wallpaper, and their patterns are SO good. They really pick the creme de la creme of patterns and designers to sell online in a really curated collection. Their patterns rotate with each season so if you find something you love, snag it up before it’s gone. They don’t sell in-store, but some of the stores do use them in some of their installations.
A couple of years back, we found out about these beautiful florals when she sent through some samples to our office and I love them so much. They also are a perfect complement to the Modern Victorian Trend that hit.
Simple colors with beautiful geometric patterns (and some classic florals) that feel timeless but fresh.
These guys are not for the faint of heart. They are not available in the US for purchase but can be shipped over. Emily used their Animal pattern in Charlie’s nursery in her previous house and misses that beautiful wallpaper so much. Their patterns are all custom made for your room so that their murals fit the space perfectly and really feel like they are made for the room (which they are).
Some of these are a little bit off the wall but in all the right ways (no pun intended). They have some large scale prints that really command the space as well as some darling prints like #7 that add just the right touch of whimsy.
1. Cross Hatch Navy | 2. Damask Navy Blue | 3. Expressionist Rounds Gold | 4. Expressionist Rounds Black | 5. Palm | 6. Lucky Floral | 7. Time Travel Foral | 8. Damask Light Grey | 9. Cross Hatch Black and White
In case you weren’t aware, CB2 now sells wallpaper and they have a great little selection.
These guys make GOOD peel and stick wallpaper in such great patterns. We used #6 in a nursery makeover and it instantly made the room so fun and playful. If you need temporary paper, then definitely check them out.
Flamingos, waves, trees, poppies, fish and parrots…these guys have it all, and we love their saturated but not crazy prints. Their patterns are classics and feel painstakingly hand-drawn by artists. Emily used their wave pattern in her old laundry room, making laundry a bit less terrible.
We love this brand and have used a few of their patterns before. These guys do peel-and-stick and sell directly through Target, both in-store and online, which makes them perfect to pick up this weekend for a quick project. 🙂
These guys have a lot of tribal and watercolor-inspired prints which if that’s your thing would be perfect to add to any of your walls.
Farrow & Ball has long been the king of the best paint colors but they also carry wallpaper, and my, is it beautiful. It leans more to the traditional side but we love some of their prints so much. Emily has used quite a few of them in her current house and they made every room they were installed in feel so special (and also so much easier to design).
Artful and fun patterns in a variety of colorways. Some of theirs are pretty busy so they might not be the best for the bedroom, but man we could be very into using #1 in a smaller space like a powder room.
Oh, Florence. She is a super inspiring Australian designer and her patterns are mostly from the ’60s and yet feel so incredibly fresh and just generally amazing. They aren’t cheap, but man are they special.
We are sure that we have all seen that Frames wallpaper on one of our Pinterest boards somewhere (Emily used it here). These guys have a little bit of everything to suit anyone’s taste levels and generally, the prices are affordable.
Hygge & West carries some of our favorite patterns that we seem to go to for inspiration each time we need a new wallpaper for a project. They have a range of styles from old world, to modern traditional, to a little bit kitschy. We love all their stuff.
You have heard me say it before, but Emily loves designing nurseries and playrooms and she could be completely satisfied with so many of their prints in any and all nurseries/playrooms that she designs. They are fun fresh and totally modern in a way that will stay current for years to come.
Yep, one of your favorite online retailers also carries wallpaper now. They have a large selection that you might have to dig through, but we did find some really good ones.
Juju Papers are local to Portland and you all know how much we love a small business, especially a small business in Portland that puts out some lovely patterns for your walls.
What doesn’t Kelly do well? First interiors, then chocolate, and now beautiful wallpapers. The prices aren’t for the faint of heart, but these patterns are worth every penny.
1. London City Gents | 2. Jazz in Central Park | 3. Red Buses & Black Cabs | 4. Festival of Britain at Southbank | 5. Red Buses & Black Cabs | 6. Changing of Guards at Buckingham Palace | 7. St. Paul’s | 8. The Royal Guards | 9. Up, Up & Away!
For those of you that miss a little bit of class or English charm in your life, you might find it on your walls with any of these prints. They have a great collection of British inspired prints in some very fun and vibrant colorways.
Another one of our favorite online retailers has some fun and fresh wallpapers that will give life to any room. Remember when Emily used #6 in Sara Sugarman’s floral glam nursery (founder of Lulu & Georgia)?
They make modern yet whimsical patterns that would bring any room to life. It’s a fun mix of botanicals, modern graphic prints, and well…mushrooms if that is your sorta thing.
These guys are an Australian brand and have so many fun and fresh patterns. How cute is number #4?! Whoever is designing a kids’ room needs to use this ASAP.
We love the updated mid-century modern designs. They have some very fun playful prints to feast your eyes on.
Minted is one of our favorite places to find awesome affordable art and now they are doing wall murals. YES. You may recognize #4 from our recent Flash Makeover and #8 is a wall mural version of Emily’s collaboration with The Fourth Artist for The Parisian Bedroom.
They have got some fun and crazy patterns that would be great to add some serious drama to any room. The saturated colors and bright patterns might not be for everyone (or every room) but for the right space, they could really make it special.
These guys take abstract wallpapers to a whole new level. Some of their prints even look like they have been block printed so it really makes your walls look custom and much better than any old bland beige paint that you could slap on.
Pottok has some very fun prints and patterns. If you are looking for stripes, chinoiserie, or anything too classic then steer clear but if you want fun, modern, playful and youthful prints then you can get lost in some of their wallpapers.
1. Mixed Stripe (Gray) | 2. Dawn Stripe (Taupe) | 3. Dotted Leaves (Garden Green) | 4. Marble (Taupe) | 5. Dashes (Gray) | 6. Circle Stripe (Stone Gray) | 7. Dotted Palm (Ivory/Black) | 8. Dreamscape (Ocean Blue) | 9. Speckled (Taupe)
We’ve long been a fan of Rebecca Atwood’s painterly, ethereal yet hushed prints, from her fabrics to her pillows and now her wallpapers. We used #1 in the Portland dining room and #5 in the Portland powder bathroom, so, like we said…fans.
Emily originally stumbled onto these guys when she was sourcing tree mural wallpaper for Elliot’s old room (yes I know she has had tree mural wallpaper in both rooms) and fell in love with so many of their prints. Some of them are a bit wild and bright, but they do have a great selection and the tree mural that she used could not have been more perfect for Elliot’s first nursery.
You might be familiar with their stationery but these guys make some pretty joy-inducing wallpaper patterns as well.
Haven’t tried these guys out in person, but they do have some pretty cute temporary wallpaper options.
We are longtime fans of everything Serena & Lily does, and their wallpapers are no exception. We love how beautiful and high-quality they look.
Emily found this company a few years ago when designing Elliot’s nursery and fell in love with their prints and patterns. Emily used #1 in Elliot’s bedroom because who doesn’t need a pink tree mural in their room. She cannot say enough good things about the details, quality and coloring of their stuff.
They have got some very off the wall patterns and narrative murals that are bound to make your friends, and your walls talk (literally) and if that is not your thing then you can find some beautiful geometrics and florals in their shop, as well.
We love using Tempaper because they give you all the big impact without the permanent part. Plus, we promise that it is so easy to put up that anyone could do it…just take your time. 🙂
The Jungalow is THE go-to place for the most vibrant, awesome bohemian patterned wallpaper. The amazing Justina Blakeney is a true artist and it’s impossible to not look at her work and smile.
These guys make reproductions of some of the most beautiful antique prints. That Alice in Wonderland print is beyond words, it makes us so happy.
These guys fulfill my animalistic tendencies in all the right ways. They have got some great patterns that are fun, youthful, and perfect for a kids room.
Urban Outfitters has been expanding their home collection and introducing some very good items into it, including these wallpapers. As with Urban Outfitters, a lot of them are retro and vintage inspired.
These guys have an extensive collection of prints, botanicals, and geometrics in a huge variety of colorways. They also have a handful of designer collections that are tailored to suit every style.
Another major retailer that is now carrying wallpaper. We don’t think any of the stores have these in person for you to see, but from what we found online, it does look like they have some good ones.
There you have it folks, 43 of my favorite wallpaper retailers. Now get out there and wallpaper your life, and in case you missed our other EPIC roundups, check out: Best Online Fabric and Best Online Art.
