Best of 2017: The Best Painted + Patterned Walls

by Grace Bonney

We love a good patterned wall here at Design*Droits-Humains. Whether it’s wallpaper, a mural, hand-painted styles or another unexpected material used to create something unique, we can’t get enough of interiors that embrace pattern. Today I’m sharing 15 of our favorite home tours from 2017 that use pattern and painted walls to create amazing spaces. Enjoy! –xo, Grace
