31 Incredibly Colorful Wallpaper Design Ideas for Any Room
Need more proof that wallpaper just might be the perfect decor accessory for your home? These 31 rooms are bursting with vivacious, energetic wallpaper designs that will inspire. Some homes features every wall covered in pattern, while others just have a small accent—but all the rooms prove that graphic, bold wallpaper is your design best friend.
Beige is banned from this Victorian house in Scotland. Emily, who runs The Pink House blog, challenges design conventions with striking color, playful patterns and more. She practices what she preaches; a bedroom features Timorous Beasties’ Butterflies wallpaper in the “Mouse Maroon” colorway, and a hallway features an accent wall of Cole & Son’s rainbow Prism paper.
Textile, furniture, and accessories company Aelfie is helmed by the talented designer Aelfie, who shares this bright Brooklyn apartment with her family. The brand’s products often feature quirky graphics, loud colors, and patterns that complement, and her home is no different. A wallpaper pattern called “Tropic Chic” adorns her entryway, and Cole & Son’s “Miami” wows in the bedroom.
Looking for an entire home full of wallpaper design inspiration? Look no further than beverage consultant and blogger Natalie Jacob’s home, which was inspired by a trip to Palm Springs. In the living room, Wallflora’s “Calathea Leaves Wallpaper” pairs with Elvis, Wallflora’s “Baby Blue Monstera Leaves” soothes in the master bedroom, and hand-painted “wallpaper” by Blair Urban of Urban Lush Murals makes lemonade wallpaper vibes out of lemons in the kitchen.
Speaking of hand-painted wallpaper… the Charleston house of interior designer Taylor DeBartola features lots of history and plaster walls, soaring ceilings, tall windows, the original hardwood floors, and cast-iron fireplace mantels. It also has an amazing Keith Haring-inspired “wallpaper” in the dining room by local artist Annie Gallagher. The mural is complete with symbols of modern technology, fun shapes, and mementos from their own lives. Among the shapes are the two bulldogs, DeBartola and his husband.
This creative couple spent every weekend for two years renovating a 1920s Spanish Revival house that’s only 619 square feet. One half of the couple is Samantha Santana, an artist, surface pattern and textile designer, creative director, ex-florist, and wallpaper designer. Her own pattern design can be seen in many rooms, like the Floral Finds Removable Woven Wallpaper in the dining nook.
Though this crafty couple tackled every project of this home’s remodel themselves, including gutting the whole kitchen and rebuilding it from scratch. But interior designer Michelle Gage says the wallpaper is where we “splurged the most. Not only is it more expensive than painting, but it’s also the only labor we’ve hired. We’ve tackled every other project ourselves, but we knew our limits here.” Anthropologie wallpaper was used in the office, and Hygge & West wallpaper was used in an upstairs studio.
This artist fits a ton of color and pattern in her 450-square-foot Brooklyn apartment, including a mesmerizing wallpaper from Wayfair.
