The Best Wallpaper Roundup (ever)
Wallpaper can be daunting to shop for, commit to and hang. But when you do it correctly, it really MAKES a room. In case you missed our recent 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. A few years back we scoured the internet pulling together some of our favorite sources (both the ones that we use time and time again and a few that were new to us), but 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 and highlight some of our favorites in a massive roundup. So, folks, here are 402 of our favorite wallpaper patterns in alphabetical order. Just what you needed for a Thursday morning pick me up.
These guys are exactly what they say they are; a little bit abnormal and a little bit amazing. I hung quite a handful of these in our 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 I love the playful aspect of them.
This has been one of my favorite sources for fun, fresh and playful patterns. They all come in a variety of color ways, and I loved her Shadowcat pattern so much that I used it the Cattery project I did a few years back. Looking back on that project is so much fun and I am still very into the pattern of the paper.
It might not be a secret to you, but if it is…. here is my 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.
We recently found out about these beautiful florals when she sent through some samples to our office and I love them so much. As soon as we have the right project for them, you can bet that one of these patterns will be on the wall.
Simple colors with beautiful geometric patterns 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. I used their Animal pattern in Charlie’s nursery in our old house and although I love his current room I do miss 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.
In case you weren’t aware (like we weren’t, until we went to update this roundup) CB2 new 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 then definitely check them out.
1. Half Moon Wallpaper | 2. Grid Wallpaper | 3. Terrazzo Wallpaper | 4. Confetti Wallpaper | 5. Harlequin Wallpaper | 6. Herringbone Wallpaper | 7. Concrete Wallpaper | 8. Arch Wallpaper | 9. Vertigo Wallpaper
If geometrics are your thing, then you definitely will not get sick of what Clever Spaces has to offer. I am very into some of the more simple patterns.
Flamingos, Waves, Trees, Poppies, Fish and Parrots… these guys have it all, and I love their saturated but not crazy prints. Their patterns are classics and feel painstakingly hand-drawn by artists. I used their wave pattern in my old laundry room and man I have to say, it make doing laundry a bit less terrible.
We love this brand and have used a few of their patterns before. These guys do temporary and sell directly through Target, both in store and online, which makes them perfect to pickup 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 and 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 I love some of their prints so much. I have used quite a few of them in my 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 color ways. Some of theirs are pretty busy so they might not be the best for the bedroom, but man I 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 60’s and yet feel so incredibly fresh and just generally amazing. They aren’t cheap, but man are they special.
I am sure that we have all seen that Frames wallpaper on one of our pinterest boards somewhere (I used it here). These guys have a little bit of everything to suit anyone’s taste levels and generally the prices are affordable.
Hygee & West carries some of my favorite patterns that I seem to go to for inspiration each time I need a new wallpaper for a project. They have a range of styles from old world, to modern traditional, to a little bit kitchy. I love all their stuff.
Classic, beautiful, and pretty timeless. He does have a few more modern patterns like #7 and #8, but I love a lot of the older classic patterns.
You have heard me say it before, but I love designing nurseries and playrooms and I could be completely satisfied with so many of their prints in any and all nurseries/playrooms that I design. They are fun fresh and totally modern in a way that will stay current for years to come.
Silvers, Golds, Metallics, and Flowers… what else could a girl need in her life (or in her wallpaper). Their metallics are some of my favorites as they bounce around the light of the room in just the right way without going too cheeky or cheap.
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 wallpapers are local to Portland and we all know how much I love a small business, especially a small business in Portland that puts out some lovely patterns for your walls.
What doesn’t Kelly do? 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 color ways.
Another one of our favorite online retailers has some fun and fresh wallpapers that will give life to any room. Remember when I used #6 in Sara Sugarman’s floral glam nursery (founder of Lulu & Georgia). Also, check out the prints by Sarah Sherman Samuel who I am very into right now.
Blue Trees, Green Cacti, and anything else that your little Alice in Wonderland Heart could desire. They have 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. #9 might look a little dizzying on the computer screen but in person I could be very into it.
Anyone who has a wallpaper print with vintage midcentury modern chair silhouettes is bound to be on my roundup of the best wallpapers online. They have some very fun playful prints to feast your eyes on.
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.
Their wallpapers will take your room to a whole different level. Each pattern is designed after hand painted pieces which means your room will look as if the most skilled artisan came in and transformed your room.
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.
I originally stumbled into these guys when I 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 I used could not have been more perfect for Elliot’s first nursery.
You might be familiar with their stationary 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 long time fans of everything Serena and Lily does, and their wallpapers are no exception. I love some of the more simple and subdue patterns like #5 and #8.
Found this company last year when designing Elliot’s nursery and fell in love with their prints and patterns. I used #1 in Elliot’s bedroom because who doesn’t need a pink tree mural in their room. I 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 showcased #9 in a blog post last year and they have just introduced some new patterns to their lineup this year that are so beautiful. They are all temporary and can be DIY’ed and Brady swears to me that it is so easy that anyone could do it.
These guys make reproductions of some of the most beautiful antique prints. That Alice in Wonderland print is beyond words, it makes me 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 but if you need a blown out black, yellow and green floral like #8 they have you covered.
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. I 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, 45 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
