Wallpaper is the tattoo of the home; sure you can remove it if you really want to, but you should be pretty darn sure when you chose your design that you'll want to live with it for a while. Unlike many decor decisions, there's an inherent added level of commitment involved in hanging wallpaper. Arjan van Raadshooven & Anieke Branderhorst's Magnetic Wallpaper presents a clever and, as a bonus, eco-friendly way to dodge that commitment.

Manufactured under Raadshooven and Branderhorst's Dutch design label Vij5, the paper reflects the company's commitment to creative solutions and upcycled materials. The Magnetic Wallpaper is essentially strips of vintage wallcoverings mounted onto flat, rectangular tiles. The tiles have a magnetic backing, which can be hung, moved and rearranged upon any pre-treated magnetic wall. The effect is fresh and modern. It's also environmentally conscious since it uses old, out-of-production wallpapers and can be moved with you from one home to another. Call it the single-life aesthetic: until your really ready to settle down, this magnetic paper is a way to string along your walls.
