Remember that point in the late '90s when you had enough of those nautical stripes? Well, that's how we now feel about taupe paint. Luckily, wallpaper has made a glorious return--this time with more inspired styles.

Jungle Spots
Don't call 'em a polka. This new dot feels more organic, even a little random. Shop the look.

Out: symmetrical granny prints. In: high-impact graphics. (Just be sure to use in small doses.) Shop the look.
