Bold design, fresh color, vibrant patterns: This isn’t your grandma’s wallpaper.

Taking an unapologetically whimsical swipe at a classic that lost its appeal in recent years, designers have leapt out of the box to ensure your walls will never lack personality. Whether used as an accent or for the entire room, think of each roll as a work of art that is sure to make a lasting impression.
