Yesterday Hygge & West announced their latest collection of wallpapers designed by Julia Rothman, and I am smitten. I put one of Julia’s first wallpaper designs for Hygge & West in my upstairs hallway, and I’m a huge fan of her work—and, of course, of H&W and wallpaper in general.

The color options on the three new designs are extensive. In addition to the ebony style of the Serengeti pattern above, it’s also available in sunrise, deep gray, shadow (my second favorite), orange, and silver.

I would love to put this wallpaper in a tiny powder room! The cheetahs on ebony are gold, by the way. Awesome.

The first things I thought of when I saw the Foret design were classic Swedish textiles designed by Stig Lindberg and Ernst Kirchsteiger, but apparently Foret was inspired by centuries-old Indian chintz, which just goes to show you how much I know about textile design before 1900 (not much). At any rate, Foret is gorgeous, and it comes in even more colors than Serengeti! Brick red, midnight (ahhhhh…), charcoal, coral (I want that in a kitchen), gold, plum, and cornflower.

And finally, Dog Park! How cute! Other than in the world’s nicest vet office I have no idea where I’d want to put this, but it’s so great. That poodle steals the show! Dog Park comes in gray, too, in case your dogs prefer neutrals. By the way, 100% of the profits from Dog Park are going to Copper’s Dream Animal Rescue in San Francisco, which is REALLY cool.

p.s. The Serengeti and Foret designs are also available as upholstery fabrics!

p.p.s. The Puppy Uppers canister is from Jonathan Adler, if you feel like you need a $138 dog biscuit holder. I won’t judge.

    Love these esp Dog Park. But I’m with you, where does it go? Maybe I’ll have a kid that loves dogs one day? Or I’ll just wallpaper their room in this and they’ll learn to love them haha.

      How about in a mudroom for a family that has dogs? My sister has her dog’s food bowls in hers.

    I just love animals, and adore dogs, so I could see myself using the dog wallpaper. I’ve seen some pictures where people have used a dog wallpaper in their bathroom, but I think i’d be more likely to use it in the laundry or in a hallway/walkthrough area. The Serengeti wallpaper is just amazing, but I don’t think I could choose a colour, they all look so good!

      I love Kim! 🙂

      Anna and Jodi – Oh man, I was going to say that had this wallpaper been an option a couple months ago, I would have had a REALLY difficult decision to make! It’s so heartwarming to know that 100% of the proceeds go to rescue. Incredible.

      Oh! I forgot that you guys met before — at that Kohler event?

    • Anna @ D16 August 13, 2015 at 11:07 am

      Yup! 🙂

    I love Julia’s wallpapers–I’ve used a couple, too, and adore the new designs. I have a friend who used a different cool dog wallpaper (all silhouettes) on a huge wall in a funny shallow playroom adjacent to her living room. It’s really unique but it works. I bet this gets huge play in nurseries/kid rooms and playrooms.

    (Ha, the previous commenter’s friend used either the same silhouette paper I mentioned or a similar one! It’s excellent.)

    Oh my gosh I love the first black one! Serious peanut butter vibes!! (i.e. reminds me of the artwork from Glass Animals’ Zaba album).

    The gold cheetahs! No! I need it…
