El Dorado by Élitis
Raffia fibers are woven into embossed vinyl for a textured feel and sun-bleached appearance on the seaside-inspired El Dorado by Élitis. The design comes in more than 40 shades that Fisher says deliver a high impact.

Fan Out
A delicate take on the tropical motif, Arte’s Abanico is one that Jeffrey Fisher deems especially sophisticated, with its wispy brushstrokes resembling pandan leaves.

Abstract Thought
Star interior designer Kelly Wearstler partners with the centuries-old fabric and wallpaper company, Lee Jofa, to deliver the Graffito Salmon/Cream by Groundworks. A blend of fine art and street art, the bright peach, hand-painted print is currently on Fisher’s lineup for a future installation.

Penny Lane
“I’ve always been drawn to Andrew Martin’s wall coverings. They’re so well done and realistic,” the designer says. Of the London-based company’s charming designs, Fisher calls out Penny Post by Andrew Martin (in red) as one of his favorites. The print showcases a collection of vintage one penny stamps that add a touch of old-world charm to a study or bedroom.

Groovy Baby
For midcentury modern-inspired wall coverings, Fisher looks to Asteré, a brand that works with accomplished artists to develop its original designs. Created by the Paris-based Garance Vallée, L’ivresse, which features bold, geometric shapes evocative of the ’50s and ’60s. Fisher says the style is best used in larger spaces, such as hallways, stairwells or the many tall ceilings found in Southwest Florida homes.
