2 Ways Renters Can Rock Wallpaper

As a longtime renter and small space dweller, I’ve picked up some awesome design tips for making my space feel great (that’s what it’s about, folks!) From color to space planning to DIYs, creating a home that is personal and full of style and design is easy to achieve even if you are a renter. These days, product designers have started to create items that renters can use in their temporary homes. One of my fave – wallpaper. There are tons of neat options out there that apply to the wall with a sticky back that can also peel right off (think Post-It note).

 What do you think of temporary wallpaper? Would you use it in your own home?
