The Best Places to Buy Wallpaper Online

Looking to pattern up your walls? Try this designer's go-to sources.

Growing up, I recall many borderline-offensive kitchens and/or dining rooms covered in cheap, nausea-inducing wallpaper. Perhaps that’s why my generation, kids who went to high school in the mid-1990’s, consider decorating with wallcovering so despicable. Well, it’s time to SNAP OUT OF IT [Cher slaps Nicolas]! There’s only so much one can do with eggshell enamel until the need for texture, sheen and pattern come into play.

Block-Printed Fern Wallpaper

Block-Printed Fern Wallpaper

Plant-based motifs, like these block-printed ferns, are cropping up everywhere from bedding to wallpaper to throw pillows. Designer Jennifer Jones uses this slate wallpaper to add character and whimsy to this master bedroom without going too bold.

For interior designers, wallcovering hasn’t really ever gone out of style. Sure, to the general public, it may have disappeared for 15 years; however, any high-end designer home created in the past decade is certain to have a few rooms sporting a variety of options from grasscloth to toile. If you’re borderline-interested in the possibility of wallpaper for your own home, here’s a few options sure to get your design mojo flowing. Now, as far as wallpaper BORDERS are concerned, let’s just go ahead and completely erase those from history. The world will be a better place.
