Wallpaper is an easy way to add sophisticated visual interest to rooms when objets d’art and pricey pieces aren’t an option. From the classic Graham & Brown to quirky Wall & Decò, Dwell shares five patterns we are obsessing over. Plus, don’t miss some of our past picks for more modern wallpaper.

Leisure is great

This wallpaper from Wall & Decò carries a slightly secret message in this pattern by designer Antonella Guidi: viewed from far away, the geometric shapes repeatedly spell out “leisure is great.” Price upon request.
