I love wallpaper, and I’m not talking about your grandma’s wallpaper! Wallpaper has changed so much in recent years! There are extravagant prints, dimensional fabrics, innovative materials that can be applied to walls. By creating drama, wallpaper brings something special to a room. Easy to apply and remove(and available in self-sticking too), its easy to update the look. Here are my favorite wallpapers along with some you can find in my designs!
Lemur by Holden Decor // Interior Design by Valerie Legras Atelier
I applied this Lemur-forward wallpaper in a clients home. The bold rainforest design is fun and gorgeous! Do you see the birds?
Kintsugi by Porter Teleo
This is Porter Teleo’s beautiful handmade “Kintsugi” wallpaper. A process inspired by traditional Japanese repair called “golden joinery”. As a celebration of objects that are flawed, a rich metallic ink is applied to mottled backgrounds.
Palmetto Stripe by Palm Orleans // Interior Design by Valerie Legras Atelier
This palmetto plant pattern is inspired by the dwarf palmetto found in the Louisiana bayou. I used this wallpaper in the design of this New Orleans home to accent the bar and keep the focus on the other large elements in the room.
Eldorado by Elitis
We love this wallpaper by Elitis and they describe it as “real effects of plant materials inspired by artistic expression which knows no limits. Caress the authenticity of their reliefs, soak up the rich pigments that bring them to life. Eldorado is a dream come true, and its natural energy, a true treasure.”
Ink Blots by Porter Teleo
Porter Teleo’s beautiful handmade “Ink Blot” wallpaper. They create organic forms by blotting ink onto Japanese paper, featuring one, large, vertical ink blot per roll. No two ink blots are alike, they are all individual. The blot does not cross the horizontal seam and avoids a chaotic visual result.”
Stars by Le Monde Sauvage // Interior Design by Valerie Legras Atelier
Original wallpaper sheets by Le Monde Savage in France. They use a the batik technique. Batik is a method of applying wax to the fabric before dying which creates patterns on areas which are unwaxed.
Maxi by Juju Papers
This is Juju Paper’s “Maxi” print, Champagne on Cream. Check out the print and brush strokes!
Bahamas by Bien fait Paris
This is Bien Fait’s wallpaper titled “Bahamas.” Described as panoramic composed of “18th century illustrations, that invite the viewer to a naturalistic exotic journey.”
