Whenever I see a room papered in a gorgeously bold print, I spend approximately three minutes excitedly daydreaming about how it might transform my bedroom or make over my bathroom. And then my fantasy crashes down to Earth with this intrusive thought: But wallpaper is such a commitment.
Except, turns out it’s actually not. Well, at least it doesn't have to be, thanks to a little innovation that's made a huge impact: peel-and-stick wallpaper. This new breed looks identical to the old-school version that required lashings of paste and a very steady hand. Its adhesive, however, is built right in, meaning all you have to do is unroll it, stick it up, and reposition if necessary — like a giant, luxuriously patterned Post-It Note for your walls.
Change your mind about your new look? Simply peel it down and your original plain walls are waiting there ready to re-paper with whatever new trend you're obsessing over at the moment.
And this little tweak is a total life-changer because it means all the bold, bright wallpaper ideas I’ve been pinning for months can step out of the fantasy home I’ve built on Pinterest and take up residence in my real-life abode.
Plus, thanks to all the bold blooms and geometrics launching right now, there couldn’t be a better moment to get papering — regardless of whether you own or rent! I, for one, can’t stop imagining how the bright burst of peonies ahead would brighten up my bedroom walls, or how the jungle fronds below look like a very good solution to my dull downstairs bathroom.
If they're not your style, peruse the other on-trend, press-and-peel wallpapers ahead, which score marks that are high in style but low in commitment.
