CHANGO & CO., ORIGINAL PHOTO ON HOUZZ

Lobster. Show some New England love with a lobster-print paper in nautical blue. The bold pattern and deep color make this a good choice for smaller rooms; in a bigger space it might overwhelm.

Where to use: Powder room, office, stairway.

Wallpaper: Lobby (in custom color), Abnormals Anonymous

 

KOTZEN INTERIORS, LLP, ORIGINAL PHOTO ON HOUZZ

Mosaic sea life. You might have to take a second look to realize that this is actually wallpaper and not an intricate mosaic! This elegant pattern of fish and squid looks like it could have been pulled from an ancient Roman villa.

Where to use: Bath, hallway.

Wallpaper: Mikonos, Scalamandre

Coral. Classic and colorful, a coral-print wallpaper gives the seaside look a chic twist. A bold print like this one might feel like too much in a space where you spend a lot of time (like the living room), but in a less-trafficked area it adds a welcome punch.

Where to use: Entry, dining room.

Elements of Style: Flamingo Flair

 

HANLEY DEVELOPMENT, ORIGINAL PHOTO ON HOUZZ

Blue grasscloth. Beachy, textured and in a super-saturated hue, grasscloth makes a winning wall covering that looks great anywhere. Be aware that this natural fiber is difficult to clean, making it a poor choice for kid’s rooms, kitchens and other high-traffic (or messy) areas.

Where to use: Living room, bedroom, hallway.

Wallcovering: Grasscloth, Phillip Jeffries

 

Z GALLERIE, ORIGINAL PHOTO ON HOUZZ

Tropical leaves. A big, bold pattern like this one has enough oomph to carry an entire room. Try it on a single wall and keep the rest of the space crisp in black and white for a modern look.

Where to use: Entry, breakfast nook, bedroom.

Wallpaper: Banana Leaf, Martinique Wallpaper

 

CRAIG O’CONNELL ARCHITECTURE, ORIGINAL PHOTO ON HOUZZ

Waves. This modern, illustrative take on a wave pattern looks hand-drawn, and the subtle color makes it a good choice for a fully papered room. Ramp up the contrast with black accessories.

Where to use: Powder room, bedroom, breakfast nook, nursery.

Wallpaper: Seascape, Abigail Edwards
