We're happy to announce: You no longer have to be utterly frightened of animal-print wallpaper. Farrow & Ball's new muted ocelot motif is how it's done, folks.
Admittedly on the cheekier side, Brooklyn's Grow House Grow draws inspiration from historical narratives (like entomological artist Mary Ward here).
But not all Grow House Grow prints are direct reflections of those stories. For instance, this paper is based on the urban legend of a time slip at a French hotel. ($48 a sheet)
For smaller nooks or novice DIY projects, Chasing Paper's removable wallpaper is one of our favorite new finds. ($25 a roll)
We?d like to discuss what is admittedly an obsession of ours--wallpaper. No longer the ?80s floral motifs forever burned in our memory, today?s patterns are crisp, sophisticated and at times even cheeky. Here are our favorite new ideas.
The easiest route Renters, check your lease first to see what you can and can?t do to your walls. If you?re restricted to temporary options (or are maybe new to the whole DIY thing), we suggest removable wallpaper. And now a new local company, Chasing Paper, has arrived with even cheaper, cooler options. Chevron, polka dots, lattice and the like are only $25 a panel and best used in unexpected places.
The chicest route There will always be a special place in our heart for Farrow & Ball (or maybe it?s just English-cottage envy). The paint specialists recently unveiled a new wallpaper collection, including a surprising ocelot print ($255 a roll), at its local showrooms. But for a truly unique aesthetic, check out Brooklyn?s Grow House Grow. Illustrator Katie Deedy takes inspiration from wildlife and historical legends to dream up her patterns. Our favorite, Ms. Treat, is based on a Darwin-era botanical expert (from $48 a sheet).
