Our Favorite Wallcoverings
Schumacher’s Tropical Isle wallcovering takes center stage in the living room of a Buckhead high-rise designed by Pieces owner Lee Kleinhelter. The vibrant statement is counterbalanced by more neutral, understated elements such as a pearlized teak ball and a woven area rug. “This space is very open with walls of windows,” Kleinhelter says. “We didn’t want it to feel like a jungle but to be the beginning of a story.”
It’s not technically a wallpaper, but we couldn’t leave this intricate Athos Menaboni dogwood mural—painstakingly restored by Athens artist Jill Biskin over the course of four months—off our list. The design’s elegance is fitting for this Philip Trammell Shutze-designed home, which was restored to its former glory thanks to interior designer Tammy Connor and Yong Pak of Pak Heydt & Associates.
In one of our favorite baths, Lauren Deloach and architectural firm Spitzmiller and Norris pack a punch with a limestone countertop, star pendant and, the final touch, an arabesque-style Nina Campbell wallpaper.
In the dining room of his Madison, Georgia, residence, shop owner and designer Jimmy Stanton dialed up the drama with a Cole & Son wallpaper depicting moody, stormy skies, a contrast to the calm palette of the rest of his antebellum home.
At the 2014 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Showhouse, the ever-fashion-forward Michel Boyd cultivated a memorable master sitting room using a bold black-and-white palette and a geometric Osborne & Little wallpaper.
