Wallpaper hasn't been this cool in a long time. But since there are so many young, hip designers playing with the graphic potential of the medium, it's on a roll (no pun intended). Nama Rococo is a company we've followed for awhile and the best reason for mentioning them, aside from the fact that their colors and patterns rock harder than anyone else's, is that you can use a little bit of their paper to make a big impact on ONE wall and really change your entire room.

Karen Combs started Nama Rococo in a small studio up in North Adams, Massachusettes, and named it after North Adams, MA (which also means "raw" in sushi) and rococo, which stands for the 18th century art Euopean art and design style that they translate to include Paris Metro stations, Funkadelic album covers and the clothes of Vivienne Westwood.

All their paper is hand printed and comes in sheets, not rolls. This means it's a small batch situation and you need to call them to see what's in stock. If it's out, they'll print it, but you may have to wait.

Prices are @ $126 a sheet, which will only cover a meager 25" by 38", so this stuff is not cheap. HOWEVER, I fully support splurging on this stuff to do one wall, an accent wall, behind a sofa, bed or in an entrance hall. Here's one I did recently.

Take a stroll through their collection and check out the range. Both in terms of colors and patterns, Karen really pushes the envelope and provides a delicious banquet of choices. Check 'em out and redo one wall this spring. This is not your grandmother's paper. >> Nama Rococo
