When it comes to the art of wallpaper, these days it's not whether or not you should use it in your home, but rather how and where. For many of us the only thing holding us back from embracing wallpaper is its permanency. Well, strike that from your list and worry no more!

Removable wallpapers have made some pretty chic strides in the past few years. Employing top designers and artists to lend their own artistic persuasions to the canvas, removable options have made the art of wallpaper truly limitless. Here are some of our favorite clever tricks for the product.

PR Executive Meaghan Shanley from Nylon Consulting got creative in her quaint studio apartment, using Street Workshop wallpaper to enhance the architectural detailing of her doors to compliment the fully wallpapered opposing wall.

Stairs are so often a neglected design feature. BUT, there's so much potential there. We love this fun geometric twist from Chasing Paper on these formerly all-white stairs. They're suddenly transformed with an edgy dose of symmetry!

Some wallpapers may speak to you from an artistic place. If that's the case, consider framing those beauties like these intriguing designs from Kate Zaremba and incorporating them into your gallery wall or using them as featured works of art.

Artistic Incline

Maybe you have some unusual angles, eaves, or in this case, dormers in your home that tend to be a bit of an eyesore. The team at Hygge & West opted to accentuate the architecture with one of their easy adhesive wallpapers.
