Don't fear the pattern! Zingy, zippy wallpapers we love

As much as we love a sublime coat of paint on the walls, the boldly patterned wallpaper popping up everywhere has us experiencing a bit of print envy. These modern patterns are so fresh, so now, you’ll likely forget the dated wall coverings of yore (scallop-edged floral borders, country landscapes) and opt to paper up every room in your abode.

From top to bottom: The Chromatic Stripe pattern with its broad swaths of color ($170 per roll) and the dense, coastal-plant-inspired Samphire ($225 per roll) by Farrow & Ball (available at Table Top & Home; Bellevue, 1105 Bellevue Way NE; 425.454.7322; tabletopandhome.com). Pull-off-the-wall wallpaper—no tools or solvents required—from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams’ EasyChange line, Coastal Cool collection ($29.99 per roll, two rolls per package. Available at multiple locations; 206.441.5597; sherwin-williams.com). This’ll pattern ($105 per yard), from Bainbridge Island wallpaper design company Abnormals Anonymous (info@abnormalsanonymous.com; abnormalsanonymous.com). Bristol (89.98 per roll), from Carl Robinson (available at Bellevue Paint & Decorating; Bellevue, 13120 Bel-Red Road; 425.454.7509; bellevuepaint.net).
