wallpaper from around the world

Last year, my husband and I bought a beautiful American Foursquare home in Chicago. Going on our second year in the home, we have moved from fixing necessary issues to working on making it feel like our own. Well, over the weekend we were feeling ambitious and decided to strip the outdated wallpaper in our main bathroom! Needless to say, these things always take twice the time you think they will...

Why am I telling you all of this? Well, my husband and I are creative types that love to do things differently. I've spent the last year searching high and low for unique, hip wallpapers that would suite our taste, and I thought you could benefit from my hunt!

Here are my ten favorite UNIQUE wallpaper companies, and an added bonus!

1 | MILTON AND KING

Milton and King was a more recent discovery, found through the amazing blog of Bright Bazaar. I fell in love immediately. Several of their papers are contenders for our main bath replacements! Their tagline says it all: "We specialize in creating exquisite, considered and bespoke wallpaper outcomes for a wide range of creative brands." 

2 | FERM LIVING

Ferm Living will always be one of my favorites. I love how clean the lines are on their products, the Scandinavian lean, and the graphic edge to these papers are no different.

3 | HYGGE & WEST

Hygge & West was first introduced to me through Oh Joy Blogs, as I watched the unveiling of her wallpaper collection. Recently, they've added Rifle Paper Co. and a few others that make my heart pitter patter.

4 | CHASING PAPER

Stylish, and REMOVABLE, Chasing Paper might take the cake for those with commitment issues or apartment woes. Many of their papers are very graphic-oriented and would be great for those that love bold colors!

5 | AIMEE WILDER

Aimee Wilder's papers are a joy for the young at heart. These are all environmentally friendly and handmade in the United States.

6 | BIEN FAIT

Previously known as Minakani Walls, Bien Fait offers papers with intricate sketch-like details, with a darker, up-scale look.

7 | SERENA & LILY

Serena & Lily offers a wide assortment from classic designs to bright, bold patterns. They have delicate, pale designs as well as bold, colorful prints.

8 | FARROW & BALL

Farrow & Ball has beautifully crafted wallpapers fit for a classic, vintage home. 

9 | ABIGAIL EDWARDS

Abigail Edwards offers intricately hand-drawn papers that are printed to preserve the quality of the original illustrations. I could stare at them for hours, tracing all of the lines with my eyes. We're actually planning on installing her Winter Seascape paper in our future tiny half bath.

10 | FINE LITTLE DAY

Fine Little Day is another wallpaper company for those with child-like curiosity.

11 | BONUS

I decided to add a bonus, because why not? Last but not least, is the company Spoonflower. Many of the handmade fabric designs found on Spoonflower can now be turned into wallpapers. For those that are apt to create their own designs, this might be a great option!
