Interior Designer’s Top Wallpaper Picks

We recently had a San Francisco client tell us that he never considered using wallpaper before hiring us, as he assumed that all wallpaper was uncool and had Grandma vibes! Our interior design team was happy to introduce him to the world of contemporary wallpaper and to incorporate a few patterns into his home. There are so many wallpaper lines to choose from and our interior designers enjoy searching through showrooms to find the perfect patterns for our Bay Area design clients. But, you are more than welcome to skip the legwork and check out a few of our favorite contemporary wallpaper lines that we’ve recently incorporated into homes in San Francisco and Sonoma.

Each wallpaper and fabric design is manufactured using eco-friendly raw materials and processes.

Each of Elworthy Studio‚Äôs wallpapers are made and digitally printed in the United States using non-toxic water-based inks that are odorless and GreenGuard Gold certified for low emissions.

Their Sedona line was the perfect choice for this kids bedroom design in Sonoma, California. Wallpapering the ceiling was an unexpected way to add whimsy to this space that didn’t have much available wall area due to the bunk beds.

Their line of wallpaper, fabrics, and rugs are available to the trade at their San Francisco showroom.

Our San Francisco interior designers opted for the Trigols pattern for this luxe bedroom design in Hayes Valley. The trim and doors were painted black to add drama and to highlight the Victorian architecture. This graphic black and white Trigols pattern was the perfect way to add character and visual interest to the space. A kelly green upholstered bed pops against the graphic wallpaper, accented with warm rusty tones in the pillows and chair fabric.

FAYCE Textiles

Kim Rosen, the designer behind FAYCE Textiles, hails from a background as an Art Director and Illustrator.
