Looking for tasteful wallpaper that still has a little bite? I’d say Jenny Wilkinson’s Hammer Head Wallpaper-By-Numbers fits the bill. I know what you’re thinking. “Shark wallpaper? Tasteful?!” But it doesn’t veer into Jaws territory, and from far away, the pattern even looks a bit traditional.

Plus, the paper has a neutral cream background, so you can color it in and personalize it with whatever hues suit you. Why not put it in a playroom and let your kids attack the sharks…with markers?

    I feel like Shark Week is getting kind of tired. All I ever see is stories of shark attack survivors and documentaries of the great white's in South Africa. Maybe a sharky design special is in order?

    A little too Halloweenish for the average home, I'd say, but a framed section like this one in the Gorey House would be quite the conversation piece!
