Help me find these two short stories - one horror and one (possibly) sci-fi.

The first is a short horror story about an elaborate plan for a husband to kill his wife by coming across a pattern that drives people mad, having it made into wallpaper and papering a room to lock her in. It finishes with the door shutting him inside the room.
The second is a a funky little piece about some artists who make a splot-splatter painting of such rhythm that it gets put on everything to their great success. They then attempt a second splot-pattern but this one fails. Contacting a deceased friend, the spirit tells them that a higher power squashed the design because it was catching on up (or down) there as well.
These stories have been driving me crazy and no-one seems to know what I'm talking about. Help me, MeFi! You're my only hope!
