The Best Wallpaper Roundup (ever)

The Best Wallpaper Roundup_Emily Henderson_Header

Wallpaper can be daunting to shop for, commit to and hang. But when you do it correctly, it really MAKES a room. 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 this super solid style that leads everything. So, folks, it was time to divulge our favorite wallpaper resources to you all, picking some of my personal favorites from each. Just a cool 181 different favorite patterns for you to choose from.


1. Shadowcat in Blueberry 2. Forest in Smokey 3. Lovebirds 4. Boating in Marina 5. Wildflower in Spring 6. Crop Circles in Tin 7. Astrobots in Thunder 8. Piña in Sunset 9. Deliciosa in Peacock

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 last year.

Oh, Flo. 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.


1. Underwater World | 2. Safari | 3. Peonies | 4. Otomi | 5. Diamante | 6. Daydream | 7. Triangles | 8. Petal Pusher | 9. Garden

1. Foudre | 2. The Wild | 3. The Cave | 4. Animal | 5. Modular | 6. Coromandel | 7. Cloudy | 8. Birds Black | 9. Mosaic

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. I used #7 in the Bridal Suite at the fig house and it added just the perfect amount of glam.

  1. Wow Emily this is an amazing round up! I have never heard of some of these sources, and they are excellent.

    I would also like to suggest “Grow House Grow” for charming, narrative-inspired wallpaper, and also “Calico” for super chic, avant-garde type stuff like marbled and ombre papers.

  2. What a treat and so fun to see that one of your selected papers, Owlet from Turner Pocock Cazalet is one I used to paper the back of some bookcases I painted a dark blue. Makes me wish really hard I didn’t live in a rental when I see all of these wonderful patterns……not my growing up wallpaper!
    Thanks, as always, for sharing.

  3. Ok that Pottok one called “shadows of the paranormal” is BIGFOOT WALLPAPER! you will be mine you will be mine all mine. In the charcoal colorway they offer. Already ordered a sample! Thanks, Emily, for this outstanding roundup!

  4. I literally just searched your site for wallpaper this weekend. You are so awesome for putting these round ups together. I love love love you for doing all the hard work. Love you. If I could afford to pay you, you would just come in and do my house for me. In the meantime, I appreciate the tips and tricks from the master and try to employ them the best I can! I’ve been trying to figure out how to incorporate more wallpaper in my house since I completed my son’s nursery with this wall paper on a feature wall last year http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/home-wallpaper/29106200.jsp?color=095#/. I am planning to wallpaper the inside of an ikea book case that I want to add to our dining room (which is open concept with our living room, otherwise I would wall paper the room). Of course, I don’t know if this roundup made my decision easier, but clearly you did it just for me. All the best!!

  5. This is a fabulous round-up. Thank you to Emily and the whole team for all of the work you put into this. We’re very lucky readers!

  6. Florence Broadhurst will forever be my favourite wallpaper designer. And she’s an Australian, like me! No matter how often I look, I always seem to find a new design. Talk about an extensive portfolio (and a very beautiful one)!

  7. Hello, there are some awesome wallpapers – I do have a question though: do you know if any of these companies has vinyl/bathroom appropriate wallpaper that does not look cheesy or 80s country with flowers? I would love to wallpaper my little bathroom, but it has a shower that is used daily (has good ventilation though) and I have been desperately looking for fun wallpaper in there. Thank you!

  8. Trustworth! That’s a style that’s very hard to indulge. Thank you so very much for sharing such an amazing resource.

  9. What a fantastic roundup of the best wallpapers around. Thanks for sharing! I know I’ll be back to this post regularly on my searches for the most covetable wallpapers. I put up Jocelyn Warners Kew wallpaper in gold in my first house and it is a real showstopper! I was so sad to leave it when we moved out!
    Have you seen the Swedish brand Sandbergs wallpapers? There fabrics and wallpapers are just gorgeous, some very traditional patterns but they also do some more daring designs. I think you might really like them 🙂 http://sandbergwallpaper.com/wallpapers/page/6/

  10. Thank you so much for this fantastic roundup! There are so many designs here that I love. I would appreciate information about how to measure and order the correct amount of wallpaper. Especially when working with an expensive wallpaper, I would like to get the right amount without having significant overage–to save money. Thanks!

  11. The title of your post is so apt. A truly epic roundup! I’ll add Magnolia Gold by Cole & Son. Looks brown on your computer screen but really is a soft beautiful metallic. Thanks, Emily!

  12. Hello-
    Absolutley stunning collection of Wall art- I am so grateful to have found your blog!!
    I am an artist residing in San Diego, do you know if its possible to purchase samples of some of these wall paper designs?

    Thank you again for sharing

  13. Do you know Walls of Ivy wallsofivy.com?
    Every wallpaper roll is hand screen printed to order here in Montreal.

  14. Best post ever. Thank you!

    Anthropologie has some ridiculously good ones. But then… they stop! I’m still kicking myself for not buying a minerals and gemstones pattern they had a while back. I wish I could figure out the supplier but pretty sure it was a limited time thing. But now I’ve learned!

  15. What a get round up of pretty papers. I’ve been searching for papers for my bedroom–the problem I’m running into is the ones I like won’t ship samples out of the UK. Any suggestions?

  16. I’m getting ready to have Oh Joy’s petal pusher in gold installed in a recess in our foyer, and I can’t wait! The wallpaper guy is so busy these days, he’s scheduling a month out. So, sadly, I have to wait a month to see it and I’m so psyched. Seeing it in Joy’s home that you styled sealed the deal for me. Thanks!!!

  17. Thank you for the awesome round up of wallpaper. Please do a post about hanging wallpaper or how to hire the right people to hang wallpaper with estimates etc. Wallpaper can be fun, but with no knowledge of how much to buy, how much it will cost, do it yourself or hire someone, it is way to daunting to even consider! Please help! I want wallpaper in my life too! =)

  18. Great article! Just a little recommendation… none of the names of the companies are actually spelled out on this page, so no SEO. IF you typed them out, people searching those companies will see this awesome roundup =)

  19. I want so many of these for myself but more importanty I want hops I sliver or pink for my daughters room. She’d lose her marbles over it.

  20. Thank you! This is dangerous because now I want to wallpaper every room in my house 🙂 I have Mountains by Miss Print in my powder room and still love it 2 years later.

  21. Wow, thanks for such an extensive list. There is really something for everyone here. I appreciate you taking the time to do this — and sharing your good taste with all of us!

  22. Thank you for this! I’ve been on the hunt for just the right paper for my foyer and thanks to you, I’ve been introduced to a few new names/companies out there. Great timing!

  23. I know this post is old (just came across it via Pinterest) but I thought I’d add my 2 cents…I LOVE Ferm Living’s wallpapers. Their Halequin and Dotty designs are my faves.

    Also, I know artist Helen Dardik has designed some for another company…but I can’t remember the name.



  25. Great idea to do this. I’m looking for a dark, rich wallpaper for my Eating Room. The chandelier is a uniquely from shed deer antlers. Wainscoting goes up about 5′ and then sheet rock (for wallpaper).

    any suggestions?
