With colors like Skywalker, Disco Nap, and Morning Ritual, it’s no wonder that Backdrop has become an AT-editor favorite for household paint. What do you expect after Ghost Ranch single-handedly saved a treasured dining set? But paint isn’t all this brand has to offer: Earlier this year, Backdrop launched its first-ever wallcovering collection in five dynamic designs worthy enough to be framed. Now, the brand is back with five more maximalist designs that will instantly transform your space. “It has been incredible to see the enthusiastic response we have received to our new wallcoverings line. We are so proud to unveil this latest collection, which still has color at the center but pushes the brand’s bold, graphic aesthetic another step further,” explains Backdrop co-founder Natalie Ebel. “It is sophisticated but also a bit tongue and cheek, with our signature sense of play and unique spin on traditional forms.”

Backdrop’s second collection takes inspiration from folk art and nature, layering rich colors, textures, and patterns into one stylish roll of wallpaper that you can use alone or pair with their signature paints. Each design is available in multiple colorways, and most are sold by the roll (with the exception of Gambit, a multi-hued checkered design that’s sold per 15′ panel). Take a look at all five of the new wallcoverings below, and visit Backdop’s site to see these styles in additional colors.

Available in two colorways, Linen and Deep Teal & Olive, Night at the Opera's inspiration is right in its name. The wallcovering has theatrical flair, expressed in the paint stylings of gesso, acrylic, and gouache on non-woven material.

Reptilia is a nod to animal depictions in art and textiles, which has a longstanding history. It plays on embroidery motifs, using flora and fauna of the swamp to create doily-like designs that call for a closer look. Reptilia is available in three colorways: Muted Pink, Warm Blue, and Bright Multi.

Florals take front and center in the lively Superbloom design that's inspired by the wildflowers of California. This wallcovering comes in three monochromatic colors — Deep Blue, Cornflower, and Cloud — and depicts semi-transparent flowers on a rolling landscape.

Taboo was crafted from ink, colored pencil, and paint before it was turned into a printed wallcovering of asymmetrical stripes. According to Backdrop, "the design recalls Jean Cocteau’s fantastical murals at the Villa Santo Sospir in the Côte d'Azur and embraces the visual language of drawing and the spontaneous, freehand mark one would make in a notebook or on a wall drawing." Taboo is available in four colorways: Warm Lilac, Warm Beige, Fog, and Sky.

Inspired by hand-tiled walls, Gambit is an exciting checkered design with color shifts, painterly marks, and surprising ink washes that make it suited for a variety of decorating possibilities. This wallcovering comes as a 15' panel and is available in four colorways: Sky & Deep Navy, Cocoa & Charcoal, Sage & Deep Green, and Teal & Earthy Brown.
