Not Wallpaper

This is decidedly NOT wallpaper. The way I see it, it’s large scale, room making, art for your walls. A collection of graphically engaging images by a diverse group of artists in varied styles, are available by yourwallpaper. Customizable in size and color and even image. ‘The xerographical printing technique enables manufacture in such small quantities as one single copy. Every wallpaper is unique as it is precisely adapted to the wall for which it is intended.’ Homeowners and designers alike can collaborate to create artwork, with a specific artist, or search within the collection to ‘find motifs or patterns for your wallpaper and adapt them according to requirements and environment .’ Brilliant.

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?
