I’m far too clumsy to paint a room well, especially when attempting to use a texture or pattern… I’m just not blessed with those talents. That’s why I adore wallpaper, especially in a pattern that’s truly unique. I’ll paper two walls, and paint the other two in a room a matching or contrasting color, or just paper one “statement” wall. But where to find the right wallpaper, something gorgeous, unique, and eye-catching? I can help… here are 8 beautiful wallpapers, unlike anything you’ve ever seen…
1 Paeonia Wallpaper
Available in navy blue or bright goldenrod, this wallpaper is hand-printed by Porridge and features a lush, stark peony print that’s sure to attract the right kind of attention in a room. Each roll covers 60 square feet, and is made in the USA.
2 Brushstrokes Branches Mural
Use this one-wall watercolor-inspired mural to draw attention to a wall of your sunroom, adding style and color even on the cloudiest of days. The entire mural covers 76 square feet, with each roll measuring 110 inches wide.
3 C’est Magnifique Wallpaper
Capture the charm of your favorite spots in your favorite city, Paris, on this whimsical printed wallpaper. Its vintage-inspired print includes the Eifel Tower and the Basilica, along with a bus, a hot air balloon, and more. It’s available exclusively at the Anthropologie website, where you can request a swatch or buy the paper outright.
4 Blazing Poppies Wallpaper
Request a sample of this vividly-hued poppy-printed wallpaper and consider where to hang it. In your closet? To your master bath? On one wall of your sitting room? It will be incredibly difficult to choose only one place to put it, since it’s so gorgeous, but don’t over-do it, my dear.
5 Lofty Larks Wallpaper
I’d use this delightful wallpaper one a few walls of a nursery or child’s room, with its charming reminder to think outside the box, or rather, fly outside the cage. Each roll covers 56 square feet, and is made in the USA with a design from the Vera archives.
6 Cameo Wallpaper
How beautiful! This wallpaper features a monochrome black-and-white print with Victorian-inspired silhouettes of people, chairs, and animals, all in ornate frames. I would love this in a vintage-feel bathroom, or in a dressing room.
7 Little Teapot Wallpaper
This wallpaper by Vera would be perfect in my grandmother’s apple green and white kitchen, with her gingham-check curtains and bright yellow trimmings. It features an all-over print of pretty vintage teapots in shades of green with yellow and white highlights. Each roll covers 56 square feet.
8 11 Reasons to Love Me Wallpaper
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… and number them, for your painting convenience. This lush plum-colored wallpaper is designed by artist Trey Speegle and screen printed by hand, with an all-over print of a vase of poppies in bright, shiny silver. Look closely and you’ll notice the entire print is strategically numbered, just like one of those paint-by-number pictures. So clever!
This is just a handful of the dozens of beautiful wallpapers at Anthropologie, so surely one of them must suit your fancy! I can think of so many rooms I’d love to decorate with these… especially those pretty larks or the bright poppies! Which of these wallpapers do you like best, and where would you hang it?
