Updated Classics: Nature-Inspired Wallpaper

Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.


Classic Pick: Woodsy wallpaper by Cole & Son lends a rustic note to even the slickest city homes. The intricately detailed bark design and soaring vertical lines add height and dimension, especially in compact spaces.


Fresh Spin: Fornasetti’s billowy, dry-point style Nuvolette cloud wallpaper elevates any wall. This iconic Italian design house is known for witty, magical offerings, and this wallpaper delivers a graphic punch of pattern that’s still dreamy.
