The thought of applying wallpaper to smooth and clean walls used to make one shudder. After all, the wallpaper of yesteryear was quite permanent. Here in the 21st century, there's a lot of removable wallpaper on the market - so whether you have a short attention span or you're in a rental, you can still get in on the fun.
Katie Deedy shows us one way to personalize a rental wall:
- Timothy Sue is designed by Colette Clark, a San Francisco artist, designer and classically trained clarinetist. The wallpapers offered are printed on polyester fabric material with removable and repositional adhesive backing.
- Swag Paper offers removable wallpaper that's pre-cut, making installation even easier. Specify the height of your wall when ordering and Swag cuts the 25" wide panels for you.
- Tempaper has an extensive collection of removable wallpapers, from metallic to houndstooth and everything in between.
