With papers this pretty, it's a shame to keep them at home. Which is exactly why Dan Nelson and Cory Lyons, owners of the 14-yearold residentially focused manufacturer, have now set their sights on the commercial sphere. Painted by hand in Lincoln, Nebraska, the wallpapers of three collections, Textures, Linear, and Non-Woven, and its star pattern, Topaz, frequently mimic much sturdier materials. Chunky relief detail makes the metallic tone of Texture's Capri pattern all the more conspicuous, as shades of rust and cypress-green mingle with gold. The shimmer is a bit more demure in Linear's Veyda II, an opulent and organic mix of silver, gold, and bronze. But the subject turns to stone in Dakota Ridge, another Linear pattern, with earthy browns and tans accented with silver. The patterns can be randomly torn into 3-by-4-inch fragments or produced in asymmetric or symmetric blocks, in four sizes ranging from 11½ inches square to 23½ by 46½. 866-795-6682. vahallan.com
