When you're living in a rental and shopping around for temporary decor, why not have a bit of fun with it? Temporary wallpaper is designed precisely so you don't have to live with it forever, so you can let your imagination run loose and embrace a bit of quirk. 


1. The Hunt wallpaper by Ceanirminger, available from Spoonflower: A deco depiction of the story of Artemis and Actaeon.
2. The Zoo, available from Surface View: This 19th-century image from the Warner Textile Archive features jauntily posed animals in a neutral palette.
3. Push Pops temporary wallpaper from WallCandy, available at 2 Modern: If eating a push pop brings back great childhood memories, then perhaps looking at them each day will do the same.
4. Kathy Ireland Grand Estates EasyChange wallpaper, available from Sherwin Williams: At first glance, this traditional pattern doesn't look quirky at all, but upon closer inspection, you're treated to a menagerie of new friends.
5. Michael Uhlenkott Damask 3a wallpaper tiles, available from Design Your Wall: Bring a taste of the Middles Ages home with some striking eagles, crowns, and castle turrets.


6. Vintage Faces Wallpaper, available from Design Your Wall: Get your fix of sassy ladies, spectacular headgear, and ruby red lips.
7. London Bus Temporary Wallpaper by WallCandy, available from 2Modern: These double-decker buses are iconic for a reason.
8. Lobster Marine Wallpaper by Holli Zollinger, available from Spoonflower: Express your love of the nautical with this simple, graphic pattern.
9. Boughton by Eddie Squires, available from Surface View: Modeled on a silk textile from the Warner Textile Archive, this pattern features color annotations, black and white patches amidst a sea of vibrant color, and small, hairy creatures, all of which add to the visual interest of a piece that, from afar, seems somewhat traditional.
10. The Swan Boats by Heidi Kenney, available from Spoonflower: Who hasn't fantasized about riding around in a swan-shaped boat? Enough said.
