3 Great Sources for Removable Wallpaper


via haute look

I’m a fan of wallpaper but I know not everyone is.  Wallpaper can be expensive and the labor involved to install is can be daunting.  And then there’s the thought of what if my design style changes in a year or two–all that paper has to be taken down.

If you love the look of wallpaper but want a more cost-effective and less-permanent solution, then removable wallpaper just might work for you.  Temporary wallpaper has come a long way in the last 10 years and now you can get the look and feel of real wallpaper without the cost and hassle.

Removable paper is ideal for small spaces like closets, powder room and hallways.  And I love using them on ceilings to a dramatic design detail.

If removable wallpaper is on your design radar, I’ve rounded up three great sources for you to shop along with my favorite picks from each site.

Affordable DIY Design Solution:

 Removable Wallpaper

Tempaper is a great source for removable wall coverings in abstract patterns and chinoiserie designs and all of their products are 100% made in the USA. Their designer collections include styles from Genevieve Gorder, Bobby Burk and Cynthia Rowley.  And if you can’t find the design you’re looking for, you can design your own paper and have it printed and manufactured by Tempaper.  And check out the Tempaper blog  for loads of design inspiration featuring their papers.

Chasing Paper sells a variety of designs from traditional to whimsical patterns.  And I love their feature which allows you to shop papers by color.   Their designer collaborations include Sabrina Soto, LABL Studio and Rebecca Atwood. For inspiration, the Chasing Paper blog is filled with creative decor and craft ideas using their papers.

If you love bold, artistic designs then you’ll definitely want to check out WhatisBlik. Unlike the other brands which sell their products in rolls, WhatisBlik sells their wall coverings as wall tiles.  The tiles are cut into square or rectangular pieces making them ideal for small spaces and DIY projects.

Getting Creative with Wallternatives

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  The hubs and I spent the weekend in Alabama at his high school reunion.  He had a great time seeing and catching up with people he hadn’t seen in years.  I also had a great time hearing stories about him from his high school days and learning about all the tricks he played on his freinds.  I can definitely say that while he has gotten older, he still has the heart and spirit of a kid.

Anyway, I’ve been busy all day getting caught up on work, emails and projects so I’m hitting the send button on this post a bit late.

Today I wanted to share a fun little project I created using Wallternatives wall decals.  During the Haven conference in July,  I got a first hand look at Wallternatives wall decals and immediately my mind starting pondering all the ways I could decoratve with them.

Accent Walls: Then and Now

Today I’m talking about a design trend that I’m sure most of us have tried at one time or another when decorating and that trend is Accent Walls.  I remember the first time I saw a room with a painted accent wall .  It seemed kinda odd that someone would paint just one wall.  Then I remember seeing a painted ceiling for the first time and I thought that was even odder.  Today, I think paint and decorative wall treatments are one of the easiest and more affordable ways you can create drama for a room.

Remember when accent walls were just a solid color?  That was then…
