I live in a rental apartment in New York City, so I won't be buying wallpaper any time soon. But I love keeping an eye on the latest trends, particularly now that wallpaper design has gone way beyond pinstripes and polka dots (though I do love both!) and now features complex trompe l'oeil patterns and images. Anthropologie has jumped into this field feet first with a beautiful—but pricey!—selection of wallpaper. I am obsessed with the paperback book pattern (top) but could certainly see incorporating these other more minimal patterns to add some visual interest in an all-white room. Wouldn't the tin tile pattern (bottom) look great on a ceiling? Much more manageable than the real thing!
