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. 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.

1. Mountains in Red Sun | 2. Leaves in Dove Grey | 3. Foxglove in Tiki | 4. Poppy in Cottage Green | 5. Dewdrops in Citron | 6. Ditto in Julep | 7. Guatemala in Bronze | 8. Cotton Tree in Snapdragon Red | 9. Woods in Solar

They have got some fun and crazy patterns that would be great to add some serious drama to any room. I especially love their Ditto pattern.

1. Egrets | 2. Japanese Floral | 3. Scatter Daisy | 4. Shadow Floral | 5. Ikeda | 6. Spotted Floral | 7. Cockatoos | 8. Horses Stampede | 9. The Cranes

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

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. Check out how I used their Petal Pusher pattern which was designed by my friend Joy Cho for her living room.

1. Tudor House | 2. Strata Lavender | 3. Funky Flora | 4. Enigma White & Prussian Blue | 5. Mermaids Moonbeam | 6. Arches | 7. Starstruck Midnight | 8. Frames | 9. Isabelle Blue

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 cheap.

1. Hop in Silver | 2. Betta in Warm Sand | 3. Dune in Silver Beach | 4. Cascade in Silver Rain | 5. Voyager in Candy Land | 6. Jam in Gold | 7. My House in Pink | 8. Drops in Charcoal | 9. Sandstone in Gold Rock
