Wallpaper has made a huge comeback recently.
With new trends and styles, the look has far surpassed the country kitchens of yesteryear and is now one of the most sought after design elements on the market.
My dilemma is this: I love wallpaper, but I’m a renter.
Also, I change my mind constantly, so I tend to stick with flexible and inexpensive decor that I can move around or replace on the reg.
So wallpaper is not an option for me, right? Wrong.
I’m sure you already know that temporary wallpaper is a thing, but lately it has become a very popular thing.
Because of this, companies are exploding onto the scene with peel-and-stick products that look and feel like the real,
stylish stuff you pin and pine over. But if installing temporary wallpaper still seems daunting, some pretty creative folks at HGTV.com
have come up with other gorgeous and easy faux-paper methods to try as well.
Check out 5 ways to bring the most beautiful and unique wallpaper trends home, sans glue…and commitment!
Can you guess which one is permanent?
If you chose the gorgeous green peony wallpaper on the left, you would be correct.

The chic custom mural installation on the left by D.C. artist, Peter Krsko, is an eye-catching focal point.

Peel and Stick Decals
Another way to get the look of wallpaper?
