Sumptuous lavender and green festoon every surface of the junior suite at the Crosby Street Hotel (FirmdaleHotel.com; from $895), where vertical wall stripes offset fuschia throw pillows. The hotel’s luxe suites (from $2,250) drip with green paisley inspired by British Orientalism.

Zurich’s Townhouse Hotel (Townhouse.ch; from $300) features hot pink and fluorescent blue stencils of the traditional French bouquet, giving guest rooms a modern twist on a European classic.
Hotel Daniel, Paris
The room walls at the Hotel Daniel in Paris (HotelDanielParis.com; from $780) burst with elaborate tropical landscapes, lush cherry-blossom patterns, and, in some cases, joyous figures gallivanting through Japanese countrysides.
