Wallpaper for renters

We rent our Manhattan apartment, so we've never thought of putting up wallpaper. But Hygge & West recently launched removable wallpaper tiles, so you could put them up easily. Wouldn't these look lovely in a bathroom or foyer?

P.S. 10 favorite wallpapers.

I was just looking at removable wallpaper from Tempaper that I really thought would be super cute on one wall in my bedroom, but I'm a little hesitant, lining up the tiles perfectly scares me! But I guess if it's removable it doesn't matter! (ugh, over-thinking it!)

Beautiful! My apartment is so incredibly white, it would be nice to have something lovely on my walls! This is really brilliant! I've also seen really ambitious people use different sizes of washi tape (I guess they come in really big widths) to make gorgeous, geometric wall designs!

The bird one is awesome. My husband would hate it, but I love it.

Even though we own our house I love this idea! Maybe I'll be able to convince my boyfriend to go for a funky wallpaper with the promise that we can always take it down!

I'm a renter too and adore this idea. Urban Outiffers also has some really responsibly priced temporary wallpaper prints, gold chevron...love!

How fun! Our walls certainly need some sprucing up!

Manda said...

Ha! What a good idea.
I would have never thought of that.
It would have saved long nights of whining about not being able to put color on our apartment walls!

Love,

These are a bit pricey even for our tiny home but they're absolutely beautiful.

Here's another absolutely awesome company for removable wallpaper. Some seriously cool designs:

This is AWESOME! We also rent, and all white walls can be so boring!

Mary Keller said...

I would love the Otomi cream tiles in our little rental kitchen. We have some pretty rough 80s wallpaper in there right now! I wonder it if would work on top of old wallpaper...

Anthropologie has some too - I got some for my bathroom last fall and LOVE it. Haven't done the math but it might be cheaper there as well, I got a whole roll for about $130.

Although I used the permanent kind, I can vouch for the third paper - the Oh Joy! blue and white petal pusher - in a small hallway/foyer. It does wonders to brighten up the space and looks good with simple artwork as well. A (very grainy) photo example: http://pinterest.com/pin/408631366159968943/

I'm so glad you recommended Urban Outfitters! I love the idea of temporary wallpaper....but this would be too expensive for me :) Especially because my husband would likely hate it :)

Erin said...

I hung the middle one (blue with birds) in the half-bath on our main floor. I absolutely adore it.

Rebeka said...

I really REALLY love this idea. Thank you for sharing this!!

marni zarr said...

love this idea and i'm not surprised that the daydream sunshine is my favorite!

Donna said...

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I've been searching high and low for fun removable wall paper for my apartment and only found pretty blah ones. So excited!

I love the first print! Kind of a fun twist on the damask prints. I'll have to keep this in mind!

I love all of these! Removable wallpaper is pure genius - even for those who own their place. It's a great way to change things up!

OOOH! Thats a genius idea! I've had the sam problem in a rented apartment.
Also when I was in a dormroom I just hated the colour of the room, that would have been very helpful then!

Seriously genius. Even for just one wall in a power room or the little alcove in the bedroom of our rental Cape Cod right now. Thanks, Joanna!

if you are allowed to paint in your rental, i'd definitely recommend http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/. they have some pretty neat designs and while it may require a little bit more effort, i think it may be a bit more cost effective. i am definitely going to use it in my new place and recently my friends used one of the designs in their living room and it looks gorgeous.

kaela said...

One of the many reasons I have loved your blog for so long...you're on the same wavelength! I was JUST thinking to myself, "I know I'm a home owner but that doesn't mean I have to be permanent about everything. I wonder if I can find some reasonably priced temporary wallpaper for the bathroom." Then BOOM! Joanna for the win. Thanks lady. :)

Joy said...

Back when I was renting, I hung fabric with liquid starch. It was super cheap, stayed up as long as I wanted it to and didn't leave a trace when I pulled it down.

H. Cuperus said...

I wont be putting up any until I hear about the removal process. I just had to remove a large piece of art and wall anchors from an apartment wall. So now I know to think about how easy it is to actually remove it.

jm said...

Ooh, I would love to try that. Love the bird paper in cream, too.

Alexis MD said...

I love these! I live in a NYC rental too. This would make my walls so much more interesting.

Lindsey said...

Great option! Thanks for sharing!

They look great! How nice it would be to be able to change the wallpaper by season! Not on every wall but have one wall that keeps changing :-)
