Design Dilemma: Statement WallpaperAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Dear CH+D editors,
I want to create an accent wall for a living room. I’m looking for a botanical-inspired wallpaper, but I don’t want a dated, granny look and I won’t be using a designer for to-the-trade papers. Where can I find some off-the-shelf, fun and modern patterns?

Using wallpaper to create a focal point in a room is a great idea. And, luckily, it’s easy to do! Although, for large projects, you might want to enlist the help of a partner. We love the Danish company Ferm Living‘s bright and graphic patterns. Try Tree Bomb for a blast of gold and purple.
Another option is Anthropologie‘s Salix wallpaper ($148 per 30-foot roll). The cheery pattern covers 60 square feet and it’s feminine without being girly.
Finally, try Power Plant from Brooklyn textile designer and artist Dan Funderbergh for a funky rope-and-botanical pattern that instantly adds art to a wall.
