There’s something about wallpaper that always makes me happy. It might be all that pattern on such a grand scale, or maybe just its ability to add so much texture and life to a room in one fell swoop (of the glue brush). Lately I’ve been noticing so many incredible wallpaper companies popping up and I’ve been bookmarking all of them for future projects and making lists of samples to test, because one of my home decorating dreams is to have our closet wallpapered inside. I did that on my own to my old closet and it made me happy every time I opened the door — it inspired me to keep it neater, too.
These Walls is a fantastic wallpaper company run by artist Sara Hingle, who has worked as an editorial illustrator for Frankie Magazine and Smith Journal. Her pattern designs feel both modern and timeless, with a wonderfully muted color palette that would be right at home in a contemporary apartment or a more historic home. From her studio in Queensland, Sara designs and prints her patterns on both paper and fabric, so if any of these patterns suit your needs, but you prefer it in pillow form, be sure to check out the textile section of her site, too. I really love seeing more wallpaper designers embracing neutral color palettes like this. As much as I love a bold, bright paper (and I do), these muted colors work so well in a wide range of home styles and I enjoy seeing the color palettes you would have found in older homes combined with such modern illustrations.
