Design The Great Wall Liven up dull surroundings with these off-the-wall ideas By Liza Grant Smith

Color Me Happy Capturing the designer’s cheerful aesthetic and fascination with ancient designs, the Dana Gibson collection for Stroheim consists of fabrics and wall coverings that present age-old patterns in a modern way, like the pink and orange Montenegro wallpaper ($150 per double roll). Chelsea Lane and Co., Lake Worth (561-904-6503, wallpaperbywendy.com)

Crocodile Rocks Élitis updated its Big Croco collection ($138 per roll) with shades inspired by handbags. Jeffrey Michaels, Design Center of the Americas, Dania Beach (954925-1133, jeffreymichaels.com)

Bling It On To spruce up the blank canvas of a midcentury modern white-box home on Hypoluxo Island, “we wanted to convey moments of glossy bling and pops of color,” says West Palm Beach designer Jacki Mallick of Jacki Mallick Designs. In the master bedroom, her team used Romo fabrics to recover the chair and to create a window treatment. To inject a feeling of surrealism, Mallick incorporated a customized wall covering that sparkles thanks to a layer of clear crystals. “Inspired by a watercolor painting, then deconstructed into a grand damask, this design is both thought provoking and timeless,” she says. “The shimmer on the surface of this particular piece brings an added element of decadence.” West Palm Beach (561-855-4062, jackimallickdesigns.com)

Italian Dressing South Florida photographer Cheryl Maeder brings the outdoors in through her Italian Summer collection of GardenWalls ($25 per square foot), inspired by the ficus growing on the walls of her studio. Gardenhouse, West Palm Beach (561-832-8260, gardenhousedecor.net)

Orange Crush Part of de Gournay’s new Florida-inspired collection, the orange Portman wall covering (starting at $1,121 per panel) features a Chinoiserie design with silver highlights. (212-564-9750, degournay.com) 22 coquina
