Looking for something different to decorate your abode? Perhaps it's time to consider adding Bauhaus wallpaper to really make your home pop. Established in 1919 by Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus style takes a pinch of the arts and crafts movement and gives it a midcentury modern spin. When it comes to architecture and furniture, the style is quite functional. However, there is an element of playfulness in Bauhaus decor — fun shapes and interesting colors are firmly in the mix. Take a look at these wallpaper prints to see the trend in action.

2. Mini Moderns Washed Denim Wallpaper, starting at $79.74

3. AP Collection Yellow Pattern Wallpaper, starting at $49

When you think of colors used in Bauhaus interiors, the primary hues — red, blue, and yellow — are the most memorable. And if you really want to create a Bauhaus statement, a wallpaper that incorporates all three is the way to go. This design by AP Collection features a grid-like pattern for a showstopping finish.



4. Elo Elevation Blush Wallpaper, starting at $160

Natural materials were a huge part of the Bauhaus philosophy, so when we noticed this wallpaper was created by photographing handcut wooden shapes, we fell in love. Designed by Argentinian artist Elo, the unusual design features crisp circle shapes set against a soft pink background.


5. Orren Ellis Husnu Peel and Stick Wallpaper, $1.89 per sq. ft.

Concrete was an essential component of Bauhaus architecture, so replicating the texture on your walls will add the perfect vintage touch to your space. This peel and stick option from Orren Ellis is modern in design and gives a nod to simplicity. It's also been treated with a subtle metallic wash for an extra touch of glam.


6. HappyWall Contemporary Wall Mural, starting at $57

You've probably figured this out by now, but Bauhaus artists definitely favored linear and geometrical forms. And this large scale wall mural combines both. With this option, you'll be able to keep your decor accents simple and let the walls do the talking.


7. Urban Outfitters Geometric Removable Wallpaper, $59

One for the renters, this geometric removable wallpaper reminds us of the work done by expressionist painter Johannes Itten. If you're into sweet colors and abstract pieces, bring this pattern into your home. It would look especially lovely in an otherwise neutral bedroom.
