Wallpaper is back, and we love all the fun colors and designs you can add to a room with its repetitious patterns. Designer Stacy Garcia created this chic poppy design as the perfect backdrop for any contemporary living space. The bold teal pattern allows the furnishings to remain modest while it takes center stage. Do you fear a permanent wallpaper solution? Try something temporary and easy to remove to adapt to your ever-changing tastes. Image courtesy of Stacy Garcia

“Here’s a color that’s fun but still a neutral. It’s spa-like when paired with white accents, but you could easily dial it up by adding poppy coral accessories.” — Marika Meyer, Marika Meyer Interiors, Bethesda, MD

The juxtaposition of the heavy materials used for the stairs and the delicate poppies featured in the artwork creates a striking sense of balance in this chic stairwell. The artwork is actually printed on a sheet of aluminum, which is perfect for the space and shifts the piece from being familiar to something exceptionally unique and rare.
