Somehow I missed Eskayel’s initial appearance last year, but I’m sure glad I ran across their collection yesterday. It’s absolutely lovely. Images are taken from original paintings by artist Shanan Campanaro, which are then flipped and mirrored (a.k.a. ‘kaleidoscoped’) to create the wallpaper design. Rolls aren’t cheap, of course, but what do you expect of something so beautiful?
There’s a wide selection of designs to choose from, and custom orders are also accepted. If you’re not needing wallpaper, you might want to take a look at the pillows too, as they’re a much more affordable option. Also, DailyCandy has a quick video interview with Shanan Campanaro, if you’re interested.

Fashion designer extraordinaire Vivienne Westwood is known for her punk and rock-influenced clothing (she has ties to the Sex Pistols, helped Sandra Bullock look like a million bucks, and was the designer of choice when Sex and the City’s Carrie almost married Big), but she also has a fancy line of wallpaper with Cole & Son. The collection features eye openers like an almost nine-foot-long Union Jack as well as prints inspired by some of her most iconic fashion collections, including 1981′s Pirate collection and 2007′s I am Expensiv collection (wallpaper seen above, second from the left).

This wallpaper is sort of a subtle crazy pattern… from far off it’s subtle, but up close it’s all nicely weird. Just what you need for an entryway or powder room.

Yes, these two photos are of the same house. Does that blow your mind, because it sure did mine. If you want your head to properly and majestically explode, take a look at the following photos. Freaking A-maz-ing.
All photos, Tim Van De Velde.

With all the fancy (i.e. expensive) wallpapers available nowadays, it’s hard to be constrained by a budget. If you can’t quite afford your wallpaper of choice, an alternative to consider is stenciling. While this might bring to mind unfortunate images of hearts and flowers and ducks, forget about all that. Graphic designer Ed Roth’s stencils are simple patterns that will change up a wall with a few easy steps, and if that sounds scary, no worries, there’s a how to video that’ll ease your beginner fears.

Talk about wall art, this huge mural is one heck of a commitment. You can order whatever size you want, of course, but seeing it this size sure makes an impact, doesn’t it?
With this wallpaper, you choose the custom size you want, Height x Width and the design will be scaled to that size. It will come in self adhesive strips that overlap to make a seamless, large scale mural.
Production fee: $500.00 plus $6.44/sq ft.
Purchase Information:Price: $500.00+

Have you ever found wallpaper choices lacking for a boy’s room? Well, you’ll be happy to hear there’s a new line specifically tailored for boys, but cool enough to put elsewhere. I personally like the paper called ‘Animal Magic’ (right) where the skeleton is slightly shinier than the silhouette, giving an xray feel to an otherwise innocent design.
Prices per 10metre roll start at Â£ 78.

You might have seen these before, but considering they usually ship out in 48 hours, they might be a good gift idea if you’re still running around trying to find stuff. Whether intended as tilework in a kitchen or bathroom or as a magnet, it’d be a great way to memorialize favorite images (good or bad) of your friends or family.
2? × 2? × .25? ceramic tiles printed with your images.
Each Teeny Tile comes with an adhesive magnet that you can apply to the back of the tile.
Holiday sale price is $3.99 (normal cost is $5.00).

Hellooo lovely white floors and walls, so nice to meet you. And, may I say your truck-mural-in-the-hallway has me tongue tied? It knocked me over the head… in a good way, of course.
This home of Sara Camre is a perfect example of how using white on floors and walls can really make furniture and art ‘pop’, even when the colors are softer shades/hues. I wish I had the guts to do a white floor somewhere, but each place I’ve lived has had really pretty wood floors, so there’s been no real need other than my curiosity to see how it might look.
Update: found more pics at Boligmagasinet.dk.

Tracey Kendall’s paperback wallpaper will make you look like a bookworm on some serious performance-enhancing drugs. And who doesn’t want that? This would be spectacular in a small nook or a small room; you’d have your own instant haphazard library. Or, best idea yet, put this wallpaper at the back of your bookshelves, and voilà! you’re done. (Sort of similar to the Genuine Fake Bookshelf Wallpaper, except maybe a tiny bit better because of the color perhaps?)

Mr. Skull just got fancy with bronze flock on a incredibly strange color-changing background. It’s super expensive but would look nice in a small powder room or entryway.
Skull Wallpaper – Bronze Flock on Oil Slick. The signature paper featuring skulls in a reflective bronze, deep pile velvet on a incredible light-catching, iridescent base, using horribly expensive ink which changes colour as you walk past it – through reds, greens, blacks and golds – like an oil slick. Printed on non-woven paper.
Roll size 52cm x 10.05m, repeat 56cm.
This wallpaper is made-to-order by hand and has a 2-5 week delivery time.
Purchase Information:Price: £210.00
