Wallpaper might seem like a pricey, permanent ordeal—but removable wallpaper is here to flip all of your patterned-paper preconceptions.
Peel-and-stick wallpaper has been on the rise as of late, especially popular among renters who don't want to invest that kind of cash into a temporary apartment that they'll be leaving after a few years. (Plus, it removes clean so you won't be stuck with any wall damage and security deposit withholding!)
It's also a great option for indecisive decorators (we're looking at you, Libras) who like to try out different trends and don't want to be tied down to just one print or color scheme. Removable wallpaper allows you to easily switch out your wall decor, with a maximum of style and a minimum of fuss.
(Pro tip: Though it's easy to reposition and graciously forgiving, take your time pressing the removable wallpaper into the wall, slowly smoothing the top with your hand or a squeegee tool while unrolling the sticky backing underneath. Nothing is worse than air bubbles!)

Stylish removable wallpaper to add your home
1. Tempaper Soleil Removable Wallpaper
Love Moroccan tiles but don't want to deal with the renovation and cost that they'd entail? Offered in black-and-gold and terracotta-and-blue colorways, this Tempaper removable wallpaper will have you feeling like you're vacationing in vibrant Marrakech, without any messy grouts or glues. Plus, the paper is water-resistant, making it a great option for bathrooms and kitchens.
2. Love vs Design Bold Floral
Floral wallpaper is a classic but to keep things looking glamorous and not granny, opt for a more graphic, modern take on flowery designs. This Love vs Design wallpaper is a beauty in this blush colorway, but our favorite part about the brand is that you can fully customize each print, from the background color to individual hues for the blooms and foliage.
3. Coloritto Removable Wallpaper
This black-and-white, Scandi-style print is neutral and versatile enough to work in any kind of room, whether it's as an accent wall in your TV den or a modern decor addition to a nursery. It's printed on premium vinyl with water-based, non-toxic inks, so it's safe for the planet and for all those living in your home.
4. NuWallpaper NU2906 Maui Peel & Stick Wallpaper
Take it to the tropics with this palm-frond peel-and-stick from NuWallpaper. Whether you live near the beach or simply dream of it, the bold print will add some island flavor to your abode—we love the idea of using it all over a small space, like a half-bath or a closet office.
5. Everly Quinn Guice Transform Diamond 18' L x 20.5" W Peel and Stick Wallpaper Roll
Who says that wallpaper needs to only be used on walls? We love the idea of applying this Everly Quinn diamond-printed paper—available in navy and gold—as a poppy accent on unexpected areas of your house, like stair risers, inside of bookshelves, or to line dresser drawers as a hidden surprise.
6. Abyssaly Store Wood Peel and Stick Wallpaper
You know we love clever, money-saving upcycled furniture ideas. If you want to give an old furniture piece an easy refresh, this wood grain-patterned wallpaper from the Abyssaly Store is just the thing for you. Beyond basic wallpaper use, its easy-to-clean, self-adhesive qualities will make it a breeze for covering smooth-lined stuff like coffee tables, media consoles, bookcases and more.
7. Tempaper x Novogratz Zebra wallpaper
A Donald Robertson update on an iconic Scalamandré design, this zebra-printed peel-and-stick will add a dose of whimsy and old-school charm to any room. The boldness of that bright-red background will add serious boss vibes to your home office.
