Wallpaper! It’s back and it’s awesome.

It’s not your grandma’s wallpaper anymore. I’m talking about the new designs in wallpaper, particularly peel-and-stick wallpaper. It comes in a plethora of patterns, textures, sizes, and subject matter to suit any taste and it’s so easy to install and even easier to take down when you need a change.

I have posted about wallpaper before. I used it in my spare bedroom on an accent wall and I loved it so much I recommended it to my client for an application in his kitchen and in the boys’ room.

Below you’ll see the two different installations that give two totally different looks. In this picture I used peel-and-stick wallpaper in a watercolor design instead of a tile backsplash in between two pantries at the coffee nook. It is an unexpected touch of art in this small space.

In the 2nd picture I used it to cover almost the entire wall in the boys’ room to give instant impact and it’s a showstopper. Both were super easy to install, peel it, stick it, reposition it if you need to. I used RoyalWallSkins in the boys’ room. They don’t pay me a dime, so this is a true recommendation. The entire mural was 118×90 but they sectioned it into 6 easy-to-handle sheets making this a dream to work with. I found them on Pinterest, but you can check them out at RoyalWallSkins.com. You can also find peel and stick wallpaper on Wayfair and Overstock.

It is my new favorite thing to play with, and although I may have had to do a bit of arm-twisting to get my clients to sign off, they absolutely loved it in the end. It is an inexpensive way to add art and drama to a room and the best part is that it peels right off, so it’s great for renters as well as homeowners.

I consult, design, and remodel spaces that reflect the homeowner’s lifestyle and budget by getting the cost question out of the way and really listening to what my client wants and how much they have set aside for their project.
