Wall treatments take interiors up a notch by utilizing the otherwise blank canvases for big impact. One of our favorite ways to make a space special: wallpaper. Whether it’s a loud and proud design or a subtle addition of texture, rooms wrapped in wallpaper create a totally new and unique atmosphere. Wallpaper can be used to define a nook, establish a focal point, or cover a whole room in character. It effortlessly adds depth and personality to a home.
We’ve rounded up ten of our favorite wallpapers inspiring us, and hopefully you too, to cover spaces in style. These designs just might ignite your next home design update!
1. PATTERN PLAY
We love a statement wallpaper and this multidimensional embossed vinyl captures all attention and takes us on a world tour. Created by French textile powerhouse Élitis, its sculptures and silhouettes refer to stories in Greek history. The vintage pattern catches the eye from afar and the linen embroidered details get better and better the closer you get.
