Since wallpaper sets the mood in a space, I thought wintertime was the perfect time to gather a dozen examples that take inspiration from the natural world. These 12 wallpapers would brighten any room in any season, but in the midst of the grey days of early February, they seem especially cheerful — and they’re a welcome reminder that spring is only a couple months away. If your tastes run a bit more neutral, be sure to click through to see the black and white options that pay homage to the moon, the stars and the stone below our planet’s surface! —Caitlin
