Peelable Walpaper - A Renters New BFF

one thing your landlord can't deduct from your deposit money!
What is peelable wallpaper? Prepare to be amazed folks! Removable wallpaper is the answer to your prayers. It’s exactly like your average wallpaper but with a whole lot less hassle. No gloopy mess on the carpet from the paste because, well, there is no paste! It’s simply strips with an adhesive back, kind of like large stickers (it is genuinely as fun as it sounds). It’s incredibly simple to use, so you don’t have to hire someone to do it, which means there’s an extra saving too….

MAKE A STATEMENT WITHOUT PISSING OFF THE LANDLORD.

How removable is it?
It’s technically removable from any wall but be aware that applying it 
to walls with texture may reduce the strength of the adhesive. Most retailers suggest sticking it to walls that have premium eggshell, satin or semi-gloss paint.  
 
Why is it a good idea?
 It’s perfect for renters who are conscious of leaving a mark but want 
to personalise their homes, and visa-versa 
for landlords who want to spruce up their tired walls. But it’s also great if one of your rooms is screaming out for a change but you’re too 
busy to fiddle about with doing a whole wet paste job. And of course if you’re a bit of a trend chaser and like to update your home regularly then this is a low hassle, cost effective way to do it.  

OUR TOP PEELABLE WALLPAPERS

NO.1 TIMOTHY SUE – LORNA NAVY LIME

Seeing as it’s removable, why not opt for something bolder and brighter than you normally would? The colours in this paper from Timothy Sue are beautifully artistic and remind me of David Hockney’s famous ipad art.  
 

NO.2 GRAHAM & BROWN -HYPNOTIST

I’m obsessed with these hypnotist patterns being used by designers at the moment. They look so so cool behind bloc coloured furniture and objects, like the white lamp in the picture. Why not try this one from the renowned Graham & Brown. 
 

NO.3 WAYFAR – VINTAGE DAMASK

This vintage damask is a bit of tradition for ya  it has a nice thick texture and is classically elegant, sophisticated and feminine.  Head to Wayfair to get more info. 
 

NO. 4 ETSY- REAL CONCRETE

I have to admit when I first saw this I thought what?? But then I looked at it properly and thought that is amazing. For anyone who loves industrial homes but doesn’t live in one: this is your answer! It would great in a kitchen.  Click here for more info. 
 
 
 

NO.  5 ETSY – UNICORN

 I don’t even like unicorn themed anything but this has got me wanting them jumping all over my walls (plus it’s £5!!). I think that this could really work in a cramped downstairs loo that has been forgotten since you moved in.  It’s not technically wallpaper, but a set of 50 decals so I think it can be counted – go to Etsy for more info. 
 
 

NO. 6 ETSY- BOHEMIAN HERRINGBONE

One of our favourites – the mustard, grey, black and white is kind of a mix of mid-century and art deco. It looks lovely with boho furnishings and potted plants, or could equally work really well in a Scandi style environment. Head to Etsy to check it out in more detail.
 
 
 
 

NO. 7 ETSY- GEOMETRIC CUBES

 Seems to be that Etsy is a goldmine for peelable wallpaper – thank you independent sellers! Another of our personal favourites because it has the potential to make a huge statement – which we think is a really exciting potential for renters. If you like it too, you can check it out here.

  2. Have you guys ever tried this stuff out? I’m 90% convinced to get some for my rented place but want a bit of reassurance that it does actually leave the wall mark-free… I don’t want to upset the landlord! PS sorry about the stalky number of comments today, really enjoying the blog! Rx
