Wallflowers

I’ve been thinking about wallpaper lately and I’m loving the color and texture it can bring to a room, even on just one wall. Some wallpapers add depth and interest, while others just add a pattern or design that  creates a dramatic backdrop for any room. A hard (but fantastic) trick is combining busy patterns in close proximity, and a busy wallpaper is a fabulous way to introduce a pattern and color palette on a large scale to match with other patterns on furniture and decor for a cozy or simply eye-popping display. Another great combination would be simple modern furniture with a busy contrasting wall. Check out my favorite wallpaper picks below:

Add exotic patterns to your wall with flamingoes and palm leaves! I love this Flamingo print because the pattern is bold but the colors are soft, and I’ve loved this Martinique paper ever since I saw it in Domaine Home’s wallpaper DIY video.

Marble a simple but unexpected choice for your wall, but packs a minimalist punch. A cool choice for wallpaper, and I love both Ferm Living and Wallpaper Direct’s papers.

I love Hygge & West’s collections because they’ve collaborated with so many awesome artists like Joy Cho from Oh Joy! to create a beautiful collection of patterns like these. I love the color palette in Nethercote and Garden is just so summery!

Last but not least, this wallpaper is my absolute favorite! This pattern is old fashioned and fun, with fresh colors and an exotic palette that would look smashing paired with contemporary furniture. Isn’t it fantastic?
