Houses and apartments by Adrienne Neff Design Services exude a calming eclecticism. That attitude goes globally graphic in Uzu, the inaugural wallpaper series from the firm. Bowing to Japan, the spiral repeat of Renjyu is adapted from ancient pottery, and Yamanoma gives a nod to 16th-century screens. The animated Acoma references Pueblo ceramics. Open Onion's stylized layers and Jagged Agate's abstract rock formations speak for themselves.
Available in 27-inch-wide rolls, the seven patterns are hand-printed according to 18th-century techniques, using water-based ink and recycled paper. Consider custom colors in addition to such standard offerings as ink blue, aubergine, and granite gray. 646-613-8460; adrienneneff.com. circle 405
