Is Paintable, Removable Wallpaper Too Good to Be True? — Apartment Therapy Test Lab

Certain landlords, and almost all dorms, have strict rules against painting the walls, which is a major bummer if you love color. So imagine my excitement when I learned about removable, paintable wallpaper — I shouted “hallelujah” and quickly ordered some to find out if it was the answer to all our rental wishes and dreams. So, is this product too good to be true?

The “Mountain Mural” Bedroom Makeover

Makeover by: Pam Lostracco , owner of Pam Lostracco Custom Designed Murals
Location: Toronto, Canada

Last spring, I started envisioning how my artwork would look at a larger size. The mountain design I created for a calendar was doing really well, so I decided to start my first large piece by transferring the mountains onto my bedroom wall. Not only did it transform the atmosphere in the whole room but my entire business plan, too! I felt entirely in my element throughout the whole process which has resulted in my new mural business.

Renters have spoken : removable wallpaper is one of the best, most inclusive inventions we’ve ever been handed. We can now let our freak flag fly and cover our bathroom floor to ceiling in skulls and flowers , remove it, and happily walk away five years later with our security deposit in hand, our landlord never the wiser.

5 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself Before Taking the Wallpaper Plunge

Wallpaper is a big commitment. On a scale from Tinder to eHarmony, it’s more along the lines of arranged marriage. However, while repainting your walls over and over can be great fun, sometimes a dozen Benjamin Moores just can’t compare to a one-of-a-kind striking print that will always stay true to itself and never leave you because it’s literally plastered to your wall with a heavy-duty adhesive. If you’re still unsure about taking the wallpaper plunge, here are 5 either/or questions to guide you through your wallpaper courtship.

How To Make a Quick & Easy Folding Room Screen — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

(Image credit: Dabney Frake )

Privacy screens are like folding sculptures, both visually interesting as well as functional. In an outside space, they are a buffer between you and the neighbors, or can block out the bright sun. Inside, they divide spaces, hide clutter, or even serve as a headboard. Making a custom screen is also (surprisingly!) a quick and easy DIY.

A Mouthwatering Look That’ll Make Your Home Feel Like Summer Year-Round — Currently Obsessed

(Image credit: Wall Flora Shop )

As a renter who loves the look of wallpaper, I’m constantly tempted to try peel-and-stick versions, but the installation (no matter how easy the instructions claim it is) seems like such an ordeal that I’ve avoided temp wallpaper altogether. However, sometimes, something comes along that seems worth the effort, and right now, for me, that’s lemon-motif wallpaper. It might just get me to bite the bullet and curse my way through hanging some in my apartment.

Compelling Evidence that Faux Wall Finishes Can Be Cool

Somewhere along the way, fooling people into thinking you have a brick or stone wall — where a mere plain, plaster wall stands — became a very “uncool” thing to do. I’m here to tell you, however, that it’s not always a bad idea. It can look good — and it’s easier to pull off than ever before.

An Old-School Design Feature That’s Making a Comeback

(Image credit: Amanda Lindroth )

Whether you call it lattice, trelliage, trellage —or the more French treillage — the look of latticework layered over an interior wall has always been a favorite. Popularized by the fabulous Elsie de Wolfe (though earlier surviving examples of this artform date back to the late 19th century), the style fell out of fashion for its formal feel.
