Bring the Wild into Your Home with Stunning Animal Wallpaper Designs!

Bit by bit I’m getting closer to my dining room reveal. I shared when I got new furniture (smaller table, less chairs), but we’ve since added board and batten, new paint, and today I ordered wallpaper! I haven’t papered anything in the last 20 years but I still have all my dad’s old tools and am prepared to give it a go. My philosophy is that wallpaper hanging is like riding a bike – once you learn, you never forget. We’ll see. In the meantime, I’m sharing a collection of fun, animal wallpaper designs because the paper I chose has animals. More specifically, bunnies. Perfect for Easter, right? In fact, you can see the paper I chose in the first photo, but it’s a pale green-blue color.

This transitional dining room features birds in its tropical design. The chairs seem to echo that tropic vibe, along with the Capiz shell pendant light (which I love).

A vivid blue entryway and staircase features the popular peacock design from Rifle Paper Co. The rabbit paper (called Fable) I ordered is from the same company. I love most of their prints – you’ve probably seen them on Pinterest or on other decorating blogs.

Birds pair with deer in this striped animal wallpaper. A coordinating fabric is used for window treatments. I used to sew all my own curtains. I’m thinking about taking that up again. Curtains are way easier to sew than clothes and I like the custom look they create.

Woodland animals decorate the walls of a boys bedroom. The dark background would make you feel like it’s nighttime in your room. I love this paper with its emphasis on the animals.

How about turtles in the bathroom? If you’re afraid to go bold with wallpaper, a small room is a great place to take the plunge. Everything works together in this blue and white beach style bathroom.

Butterflies make their appearance in a charming laundry room. I have to admit, it can be a bit daunting choosing a wallpaper pattern. There are SO many options! I went to our local paint store that carries a library of wallpaper books that you can check out. I limited myself to looking at just a few, otherwise it would’ve taken all weekend to decide.

I’ve seen this whimsical fish paper and have always loved it. Not sure I’d put it in my own home, but if I lived near the ocean, it would be a top contender.

Here’s the paper I chose for my dining room, but shown in a bedroom. It’s Fable in the mineral color, by Rifle Paper Co. And lucky for me, it’s 25% off during the month of April. I ordered the traditional wallpaper that you have to paste. It’s what I’m used to working with and I think it will be easy to hang than peel and stick – but I could be wrong.

  1. I love that wallpaper is making a comeback, and really like using it in small areas such as behind the bar area. Can’t wait to see your rabbit wallpaper, have saved it on my powder room pinterest board as that is the “rabbit” room here.

  2. That wallpaper will look pretty on your wall. I love the new wallpaper designs they have now. You are really busy making changes in your home, can’t wait to see it all.

  3. Lovely post. Where can I purchase the bird and deer striped wallpaper noand coordinating fabric? I saw no credits for this in the article other than photographer. Many thanks!
