Marimekko Wallpaper

Gone are the days of wimpy florals and wildlife borders—today’s wall coverings are bold and unexpected. To wit: Finnish textile company Marimekko has turned some of its famous prints into wallpaper. Choose from classic leaf designs or more modern styles like the Joonas (pictured) to reinvent one wall or an entire room. Available at FinnStyle, 651 Nicollet Mall, Mpls., 612-333-2127, and finnstyle.com
