Paint is so passé. If you're looking to spruce up your place, choose wallpaper instead; these are not your grandma's paisley prints. Local designers are choosing wallpaper to make their latest home-improvement marks—from bold geometric prints to L.A.-themed palm trees and even tiny traffic illustrations. Add some whimsy to your kids' rooms, or pick an accent wall in the living room to liven up with a colorful pattern. The best bonus? All five of the options below are designed right here in L.A.
