Some of this stuff is a little too busy (even for me) but here are a few I like:

There’s that strip idea again:

You can search by designer on their site – my favorite is Cole & Sons. The company is based in Los Angeles…maybe worth a field trip. walnut wallpaper 7424 beverly boulevard los angeles california 90036 323.932.9166
