Top 51 Wallpaper Sources

after barb’s “how to decorate furniture with wallpaper” post yesterday i was overwhelmed with emails about where to find great wallpaper. so rather than answer the same email over and over, i figured i’d share my top 50 favorite resources for wallpaper. this list started out as a top 10, but when i started listing companies i loved off the top of my head i ended up with close to 30. so i went ahead and rounded it out with all my favorites and some good resources for one-stop wallpaper shopping. whether you’re in the market for something bold and metallic or prefer a more subtle solid, these shops will have you covered (and papered) in no time. [image above: joy’s wallpaper for hygge & west]
