OFF THE WALL
Removable wallpaper that's actually stylish
With wallpaper back in style, self-adhesive and removable versions are a godsend for anybody whose taste changes more quickly than her willingness to deal with scraping and re-gluing.
We've long been fans of industry-leader Tempaper, but we're thrilled to see newcomers take on this genius idea. Australia-based Interiorinstyle makes sophisticated and affordable removable room art, ranging from pretty paper patterns to hip decals and children's wall stickers. We're particularly taken with the Victoria Designer wallpaper, which looks good enough to be mistaken for vintage.
For the decorator in all of us, there's Wall Décor Designed by You, a new bespoke tool created by removable wallcovering experts 4Walls. The site lets you customize existing wallpaper patterns or create new looks by uploading images. 4Walls then prints your one-of-a-kind design on pre-pasted rolls for quick shipping and easy installation.
An eco-friendly, sound-insulating and self-adhesive wallcovering sounds futuristic, but BuzziSkin's felt-like removable wallpaper feels of-the-moment with its bright colors, quirky patterns and versatile surface (it can serve double-duty as a bulletin board, for example). Right now you can find this Belgian line at Manhattan's D'apostrophe, with more American retailers lining up soon.
