Wallpaper isn't a dirty word and it nothing to live in mortal fear of. It is time to embrace the paper and the patterns. I don't know about you, but if I could put up different wallpaper in every room I would be a happy happy boy. One of my favorite wallpapers for a while has been Flavor Paper because it is hand-screened by a bunch of really cool people. I am currently madly in love with the Brooklyn Toile. The pastoral scenes of traditional toile morphed into a Brooklyn renaissance of epic sights and sounds. From the good part of Brooklyn.
I'm also a bit swooning over Joanne Fabrics Just Stripes collection.
I can't imagine why anyone would dislike this pattern. It's graphic, colourful, interesting, and evokes an emotional response.
Here's another current crush, Thibaut Etosha in grey.
There really is nothing like "geometric" (I don't happen to think it is that geometric, honestly) to wrap an ENTIRE room.
