Take a look at these adventurous papers and get inspired to walk on the wild side of wallpaper.

Dramatic Blooms

For her pre-teen daughter’s bathroom, Dallas homeowner Maria Bailey wanted something colorful and different, and they were both drawn to this busy tropical floral pattern. “It’s a look that will last through her teen years — I want to say she’ll love it forever,” says Maria.

When Nashville homeowner Laurie King found out this wallpaper was scratch-and-sniff, she was sold. “It’s perfect for the family room in our Airbnb in town, because we’re trying to create a unique, quirky experience.” Guests staying in nearby units often come by to check it out.

Larger-Than-Life Leaves

Homeowners Julie Hill and Erica Lundberg say that having this oversized print actually helps their Brooklyn condo feel less busy. “We have a 7-year-old and there’s always a lot of stuff around, but looking at the pattern makes everything disappear. It’s weirdly calming,” says Julie. The couple had been drawn to blues and greens but fell for this design because it complements their sage cabinets.

Mod Blues

This bar is part of a guest suite in Sabina Stone’s New Canaan, Connecticut, home. Tile would have made the space feel like a kitchen in the middle of a bedroom, she says, so she chose this wallpaper in a custom aqua that matches the cabinets. “The pattern is on only a small patch of wall, but it makes a big impact,” she says.

Tennis Balls

“We’re a big tennis family, and we store our rackets in the mudroom, so this pattern fits us perfectly,” says Bethesda, Maryland, homeowner Rachel Rosenthal. When the paper, which she found on Wallshoppe, first went up, “it was a big shock,” she says. “But now I feel excited every time I see it — I only wish I’d done it sooner.” (Wallpaper by Clare V.)

Graphic Oranges

“It’s not like me to choose such a loud design, but I’m so glad I did because these colors make the room,” says Chicago homeowner Celine Collins. This pattern reminded her of orange trees in Southern California, where she grew up. “This is my guest room, and everyone who stays here tells me how much they love it!” (Wallpaper by Rob Wilson for Look Walls & Interiors; Room design by Jasmin Reese)
