Wallpapers have been having “a moment” for some time now, and it’s not hard to see why. With so many designs and styles to choose from, wallpaper has the complete aesthetic-changing power of paint, but with added variety and, in the case of removable wallpaper, lacking the same level of permanence.
Our friends at Tempaper have been leading the removable wallpaper trend since 2008 when they launched their game-changing wallpaper that’s self-adhesive and able to be repositioned and removed without causing any wall damage. No longer do we have to suffer the headache of mixing wallpaper paste and attempting to adhere strips to our walls with unrealistic precision. Tempaper, allows you to get the wallpaper look you want, with minimal effort. And for renters, the fact that the wallpaper is removable opens up a slew of new options for bringing color and pattern to spaces where painting is off limits.
What’s more, with Tempaper’s wide range of patterns, and designer collections, one could feasibly give any room a regular seasonal refresh by simply switching out wallpaper styles. How cool is that?
There is so much you can do with wallpaper, from brightening a dark space to adding dimension or even creating a unique focal point, the right wallpaper can elevate your home decor in more ways than one. Here are just a few of our favorites…
Patterns and Prints
Perhaps the most obvious, but most valuable attribute of a well-chosen wallpaper is that it can add a bold, or subtle pattern to a room that may otherwise feel fairly neutral. Explore patterns that incorporate interesting color palettes or utilize large prints. Variations on the classic banana leaf print are certainly on trend and can give a space an instant “jungalow” feel, but don’t be afraid to try sophisticated geometric styles as well, such as Tempaper’s Intersections in Urban Bronze.
To accentuate other aspects of your decor, such as furniture or decor accents, opt for smaller prints that complement those aspects and serve as a backdrop off which everything else will pop. The Connect-Black on Paper design is our favorite for achieving this effect.
In need of giving your walls a bit more texture? Again, temporary wallpaper is a quick, inexpensive and easy fix to achieve a myriad of textured looks. From brick to wooden planks to concrete, choose from a variety of realistic prints that can seriously transform a boring drywall, into a stylish-looking seemingly structural element with no renovation required!
One of the best things about wallpaper is how it can quickly change the look, feel and dimension of a space. Play with colors that can optically brighten or lengthen a small, darker room. Or add a darker toned wallpaper to the ceiling to draw the eyes upward and in effect make a room appear taller!
The key is to choose colors, patterns, or prints that will help you achieve the mood and appearance you want, sans paint rollers and a lot of messiness.
One final way to utilize a Tempaper wallpaper style you love, is to display it in unconventional ways as an accent element. For instance, you could line the back of a bookshelf for a pop of pattern and color, or you could frame a small piece of a print that includes your favorite accent colors and display within a gallery wall.
Tempaper also offers removable painted stripe designs, which you can use to varying degrees to create a variety of looks – from one stripe to three, to a wall-full, the choices are pretty much endless.
Think outside the box, take advantage of Tempaper’s removability and experiment with new places to place your wallpaper for a truly unique look.
