The decal trend has survived the volatile market of recent years, probably because it's a cost-effective way to customize a home — particularly for renters. In fact, the number of online shops offering temporary removable wallpaper, wall murals, and decals has grown in the last decade, and there are more good sources than ever before.
- WallCandyArts.com: This online shop sells wall decals targeted towards parents shopping for a nursery. Their removable wallpaper is non-toxic, lead-free, VOC-free, and made in the USA. Shown: Happy Flowers Wall Stickers, $54.
- Tempaper: This removable peel-and-stick paper comes in some very chic patterns that are sold by the roll in 20.5 inch x 11 yard increments. Patterns range from art nouveau to 1970s mod, and new styles are released seasonally.
- Eazy Wallz: This company makes removable wall murals — or large-scale digital prints — that start around 4 x 6 feet. When you order a mural, it will ship to you in panels, which you then install by lining up each sheet according to pre-printed guidelines.
- Wall Sticker Shop: This webshop is a source for most of the major wall decal brands, including Blik, Wall Candy, Bodalee, Surface Graphics, and more. They carry patterns for kids' rooms, as well as more grown-up styles. Shown: Big Skulls Vinyl Mural Wall Kit, $35.
- Ferm Living Shop: This Danish company has some of the most distinctive wall stickers we've seen, including borders, frames, maps, trompe l'oeil designs and silhouettes in black and gold. Shown: Gold Keys Wall Sticker Set, $57.50.
- Mykea: These decals are designed not for your walls, but for your basic everyday IKEA furniture. Have a boring old piece that you want to update? Try something colorful and fun like the Amplifiers stickers (€50), designed for a Malm dresser.
- Couture Deco: This is another online resource to bookmark for wall decals, wallpaper, artwork, and accessories. They carry a bunch of designs from Ferm Living, Ecological Canvas, and other modern brands, with prices ranging from $50 to $200.
- Blik Surface Graphics: They have a huge selection of peel-and-stick decals, and you can order custom designs as well. Check out their online gallery for examples of made-to-order wall murals for homes and galleries.
- Elly Nelly: This independent mother-daughter team makes affordable, removable, self-adhesive wall decals. Their products are simple, modern, and they make some beautiful borders. Shown: Hedgerow Floral Silhouette, $50.
- Wall Decor Shops: This online shop carries a mix of wall murals, removable wall decals, and wall stickers. Not everything is great, but they have a huge inventory, and if you sift through the site, you can stumble across some gems.
