Hotel Wallpaper We’re Obsessed With
From lobbies and bars to suites and bathrooms, hotels around the globe are incorporating colorful and intricate wallpaper to up their style game. Browse our favorites below, and get inspired to bring the look into your own home.
Room Mate Giulia
The geometric wallpaper at this trendy Milan hotel is designer Patricia Urquiola’s nod to the city’s grid plan and history in the graphic arts. We especially dig how it plays off the retro colors and midcentury modern furniture.
Near the gates of Buckingham Palace, London’s Goring Hotel exudes English grace and style. There are country-house antiques, woven drapery from the same textile mill used by the royal palace, and exquisite wallpapers that were hand-painted in China over a period of 10 weeks. Talk about a royal affair!
The Beverly Hills Hotel
This large-scale banana leaf wallpaper at The Beverly Hills Hotel is one of the most iconic things about the legendary property after its A-list clientele and 90210 address. Technically cataloged as the Martinique “A” BH90210, it appears in the hotel’s coffee shop and hallways, suffusing the spaces with a tropical, fashion-forward vibe.
There are 110 rooms at this fabulously gaudy inn just outside of San Luis Obispo—each with a theme and kitschy wallpaper to match. Take the Love Nest: a bi-floor room with pink shag carpet, French-styled furnishings, pink floral wallpaper, and an entrance adorned with love birds entwined with hearts and vines. Or the all-pink Merry Room, whose glittery rose-hued wallpaper, crystal chandeliers, and vaulted ceilings is designed to channel a merry-go round.

Crosby Street Hotel
The Park Tower Knightsbridge
Hand-painted, hand-embroidered Magnolia wallpaper adds a fairytale feel to the tea room at this posh London hotel. A sparkling chandelier, wraparound staircase, plum-hued furniture, and metallic accents complete the picture.
Spread out between a restored 1757 Dutch colonial stone mansion and accompanying carriage and stable houses, the Hasbrouck House is one of Hudson Valley’s most pastoral stays. Inside, historic touches like antiques and 18th-century old stone fireplaces are brought up-to-date with mixed-pattern furnishings, brass light fixtures, and playful wallpaper evocative of children’s book illustrations (trust us, it works).
Sujan Rajmahal Palace
Whimsical, fantasyland-esque wallpaper—of striped umbrellas, cypress trees, peonies, and more— appears in virtually every room of this extravagant Jaipur hotel, formerly the private home of the Jaipur royal family. Our favorite room: the Jackie Kennedy Suite, named for its former guest, and decked out in Tiffany-blue furnishings, Persian carpets, and climbing rose wallpaper.
This hip-kid hotel tapped Brooklyn-based illustrator Dan Funderburgh to design the wallpaper that graces the walls of its industrial-chic guestrooms. The design features Brooklyn’s iconic water towers, street signs, and historic-looking mailboxes, adding warmth and texture to the otherwise stark, loft-like rooms.
Saint James Paris
We’ll say this—the design of this Paris hotel isn’t for everyone. But one thing’s for certain: the interiors are anything but staid. Check out the (pictured) Super Room, whose blend of tartan plaid and panther spots was conceived to pay homage to the Mary, Queen of Scots.
A former surf motel turned luxury hotel, Australia’s Halcyon House is the embodiment of chilled-out cool. There are panoramic ocean views, a see-and-be-seen pool, and 21 eccentrically-designed guestrooms—all individually designed, and featuring funky wallpaper and textiles, antiques, art and furnishings sourced from all over the globe.
