nina campbell iphone wallpapers

I have a love/hate relationship with my iPhone. Most days, I’m cursing it for countless dropped calls and crashing programs, but every now and then when I’m stuck on the subway, I’m reminded of what a great tool it is — for distraction, reading and entertainment. I’m not one for constantly changing phone wallpapers (the…

For the past few years, I’ve enjoyed seeing wallpaper studios featured more in those rows, and I’m curious to find out who will push the medium further this year,…

50s wallpaper by sanderson

I’m not normally a big 50s person, but every now and then something inspired by that era will catch my eye and make me want to embrace a look that’s a little bit retro.

These new designs from Thibaut are definitely in the running for my imaginary wallpaper project, particularly for the imaginary dining room I will one day have. Designed by Alpha Workshops…

eskayel: the era collection

When I think about wallpaper, I tend to gravitate toward bold patterns, but these new watercolor-style designs from Shanan Campanaro at Eskayel are just gorgeous. Shanan’s “Era collection” is available in wallpaper, fabric and pillow form and feels like an elegant version of Rorschach drawings. If you’re looking for something modern but want to keep…

moore & moore wallpapers

If I could cover my entire life in stripes, I probably would. And ticking stripes are just about my favorite type around. So when I saw this beautiful ticking-stripe wallpaper design from a new Australian company called Moore & Moore, I was sold. Founded by Lynne Testoni and KT Doyle, Moore & Moore creates classic…

Wallpaper is always a favorite topic and in the past five years, the number of beautiful papers available has simply exploded. Searching through the sneak peek archives, it was pretty tough narrowing down my favorites to only 30, but I thought these choices best represented the wealth of styles available and the different ways you…
