Are you a serial decorator on an ever-evolving design approach but don't want to commit to something as expensive and labor intensive as new tile? Or maybe you are a renter whose interior home style has to be temporarily shelved because you don't have two dimes to rub together after your rent is due? One last question: do you love the look of those graphic ceramic tiles that are all the rage currently? If you answered yes to at least two of those quandries, then you're going to love Chasing Paper's new Mediterranean-inspired removable wallpaper line.
With all the look of cement tiles but none of the maintenance or investment, this new collection is ideal both for those of us who are commitment-phobic (or unable to commit because of rental restrictions) and those of us who have been eating ramen for a week straight.
The brains over at Chasing Paper were influenced by the inspiration that only traveling can bring. Purchasing and installing actual tile will not only cost upwards of thousands of dollars (I think I heard the ramen girl just faint) but also will require a lot of dedicated time if you thought you would be ambitious enough and make it a DIY project. The removable adhesive on the back of the wallpaper makes for easy installation in any area you choose to apply it to, so you can re-style your space and not have to adjust your weekend schedule (resume current Netflix show).
The encaustic-looking wallpaper comes in a variety of styles and bold colors. The Porto design is just one of six that are available for quick revamping. The best part is, it costs way less than the flight to Madrid will ($40 a panel, made to order). It's just what you and your walls need to feel less deprimenté and more eleganté. But why stop at the walls? The paper is super accommodating to almost every surface. Hello, serving trays and kitchen backsplash?!
