Admired lately: leafy wallpaper patterns, which add a verdant feel to an interior (especially welcome in spaces without a lot of natural light). Here are five favorites:
Above: Marthe Armitage's papers are hand-printed to order in fanciful patterns featuring flora and fauna and bucolic country scenes (including Oakleaf, shown above). Available from Hamilton Weston.
Above: UK artist Neisha Crosland's Cactus Paisley Wallpaper depicts a "prickly pear climber with leaves like sea horses." It's available in a range of colorways; the one shown is Marrakech Blue.
Above: Swedish company Sandberg's Raphael wallpaper pattern was inspired by 17th-century French tapestries. In the US, Sandberg wallpapers and fabrics are available through the Scandinavian Design Center.
