If These Walls Could Talk

My 63 Favorite Temporary Wallpaper Patterns

We all know that I am no stranger to wallpaper. I love it, I use it and I constantly find myself trying to get every single one of my clients to use it in their homes. We even did a massive wallpaper roundup last year where I showed you some my favorite sources. But, wallpaper can be daunting to shop for, commit to and hang. Not to mention it may not be the right solution for everyone… cue renters, commitment phobes, and squatters. But, when you do wallpaper correctly, it really can make a room. It not only provides a big pattern that creates impact but it actually makes the rest of the room easier to design because you have this super solid style that leads everything. Let’s take a little walk down memory lane (which is very wallpapered memory lane in this case).

  1. I am in love with the wallpaper you used for your daughter’s room! I’m pregnant with a baby girl and I would like to use the same paper for an accent wall in her room. When it comes to removing the paper (when we eventually sell the house, not in the immediate future) – how difficult is that with that particular vendor’s paper and paste etc? Would really love your thoughts! Love love you blog and insta feed, your babies are so adorable!

  2. As a renter this product is terribly intriguing. I have non-textured walls (yes, I know, I’m amazingly lucky) and wanted to try this. I bought a CB2 wallpaper like the #49 Facade that is vinyl coated and followed the instructions to a T. Unfortunately the wall paper kept falling down and bubbling. It was hugely disappointing. I ended up trashing the wallpaper & getting a full refund from CB2, but I’m wondering if anyone at the EHD team has experienced this, or any readers? Is this common? Is there a fix? Are some temporary papers better than others? Also out of curiosity, has anyone had success with using this or a similar product to temporarily cover ugly tile?

    1. Hi Molly,

      I used the same wallpaper in my client’s project – and we had no issues with it – it went on the wall perfectly. Sorry to hear you had a back luck with it – maybe it was an issue with the specific roll.

  3. LOVE 22 and 46. I wish that it was less expensive though! I feel like I’d be dropping a couple hundred on something that isn’t going to last very long 🙁

  4. Having just patched and repainted from temporary wall paper – I just think these products are awful. The products were on the wall for a year – and there was no way to cleanly remove – pulled the paper layer off of the wallboard in places. Sure, I didn’t have top steam to remove, but still could not be removed without having to repaint the wall.

    1. Hi Tracy – the same thing happened to me when I used temporary wallpaper. The directions said to make sure the paint on the wall you were applying it to had cured for at least 3 weeks. Mine had cured for 3 years and when I had to peel off the paper to readjust it, a huge piece of paint came off. Can only imagine what will happen when the whole wall of paper comes down. Great idea but temporary with no damage? Not so much.

  5. I’ve been wanting #47 since I saw it in the spring Anthropologie catalog. It is amazing, wish I could live somewhere long enough to feel like the investment is worth it!

  6. Etsy round up. I still look lovingly at your etsy pillow one from waaaay back.

    1. Hi Shawn! I just did an Etsy round up on my blog and have some great artisans to share if you’re interested!

  7. I absolutely love that palm print and I didn’t even realize it was temporary?!

    1. If you mean the one in the inspiration image, that one is not temporary. It’s regular style.

  8. Spoonflower.com is a great source for this! Tons of fun patterns, and you can upload your own custom design, too. They have a peel and stick version that’s super easy to install.

  9. I would love an affordable TV stand roundup. We’re doing a Scandinavian/ mid-century style look, but all the pretty TV stands are $1,000 and up! It’d be great to see if any are less than that.

    1. go to Craigs list. Just got a fantastic one for 200$.

    2. try the Ikea Stockholm tv stand or sideboard. I used the sideboard and love it.

  10. How temporary are they? What is the application process?

    1. some apply with a light coat of water and then you use water to pull them off as well, and some are light giant stickers. I’ve used both and they were both super easy to apply!

  11. these are fabulous!
    Can i request a throw blanket round-up? I realize we are moving into spring/summer but we blast our AC so I still love a cozy blanket in the summer.

    thank you and thank you for all the hard work on the blog and the fabulous content!

  12. absolutely love temporary wallpaper and you have 63 great picks here! I used #2 in black and white in my bar area, and designed my own cherry blossom wallpaper to use in my powder room. I also love the price tag and the easy application for temporary wallpaper. Although I’m sure it would have been easier to do it with a second person, I was able to do it completely by myself!

    The bar area one is in this post: http://thestylesafari.com/?p=8619
    the bathroom is this one: http://thestylesafari.com/?p=7901

  13. We have #56 installed in our guest room, and while it’s GORGEOUS, I wouldn’t say it’s temporary. It is supposedly easily removable, but it is prepasted wallpaper that you hang in strips, not peel and stick like most removable wallpaper.

  14. Emily, can you PLEASE PLEASE tell me where the wallpaper was from in your periscope yesterday (interviewing the intern)? It is EVERYTHING.

    1. It’s called “My House,” and it’s by Sissy + Marley for Jill Malek! You can find it here – http://www.jillmalek.com/wallpaper/portfolio_wallpaper_15.php

  15. I need #3 in my life more than I ever thought possible. It speaks to my heart. I really wish I had a powder room; it would be perfect in there. Where can I put this? Hmmm…. Might be time to redo my home office!

  16. Roundup of fireplaces! Like hard finish options, not just styling. Brick fireplaces! Tile fireplaces! Stone fireplaces! Wood fireplaces! Fancy carved marble fireplaces! Mod sleek steel fireplaces! I say this every time you ask for content ideas, but I think I must be the only one, haha.

  17. I love so many of these! I kind of need to pin this and then go crazy wall papering my entire house!

  18. As lovely as all these are, what would be even more helpful is a quick review of the different application methods utilized by different brands and maybe some experimental tests on applying and removing. If you are really and truly renting, the whole goal is to get something that’s not going to break the bank – or your security deposit. If it turns out that most of these either a) don’t stick at all, or b) stick too well and can’t be removed without damage that you are then responsible for repairing at your expense, their good looks won’t get you very far.

  19. Wow that’s an impressive round up. These wallpaper are so cheerful and impactful, simply beautiful.

  20. Gorgeous roundup!! I want that swan paper in my bathroom so badly. Also, that cat shelter was ridiculously awesome. Would love to see you do another charity space like that.

  21. LOVE everything you all come up with!

    Round up ideas!!
    -patio/pool area furniture and decor (hammock, loungers, candles, umbrellas, attractive kid toy storage (that keeps spiders out!), side tables, candles, etc)
    -man chairs/recliners
    -coffee table books for varying interests
    -favorite + easy to take care of indoor plants
    -budget friendly floor tile for kitchen, laundry, bathroom
    -wall art/decor

    Other idea:
    -functional yet pretty kitchen and pantry styling

    Thank you! 🙂

    1. I second coffee table books!!! And I think it would be really cool to do a gas stove roundup for those of us with no fireplace!! 🙂 You guys do such a great job!!! I LOVED the over sized pillow idea for your bed (and purchased one off of the list)!!

  22. 20, 30 and 53 are giving me heart eyes!! I’d love to try out wallpaper sometime, and removable definitely seems like the wisest option for a first-timer.

    That Twenty Something

  23. cool. Really really Cool. Love many of these wallpapers. Am one of those who have Often given up wallpaper ‘shopping’ after a brief toe dip in the pool. Too many choices, too many vendors, too much yukky stuff to wade through. Needed someone – Yourself! – to narrow down the options and making these all ‘temporary’ wallpapers helped enormously. Having said that, I Still gave up after a while, a long while, clicking on this and that and finding too many out of my price range. I get that you garner ‘credit’ for placing a company’s product in a story, and getting us to click-on to their websites…but still, a price point guide? a price beside the product? would get ‘credit’ from your audience I think, and save a lot of unnecessary Further winnowing for us your readers. Me anyway. I say this because this Really applies to this long list, but too because I have felt the same with your other product lists – beds, sofas, etc – and sometimes you Do have prices so I don’t waste my time tilting at windmills. On a tight budget this is just frustrating.

  24. So gorgeous! Love these designer wallpapers which are adding an elegance to your room walls, especially the Living room’s leaf pattern one. Moreover, the blue candle holders also seems stunning.

  25. I love number 3 so much. I’d love to know how DIY friendly these really are. Can I actually do this or is this something better installed by someone who knows what they are doing?

    I know you did a rug round up recently- but I would LOVE another. I am so paralyzed by all the options and they make such an important impact on a space. I’ve been trying to pick one forever, and I just can’t.

  26. I mean, really, did you read my mind? I’ve spent the last week trying to find the best temporary wallpaper out there for my office in my rented apartment. Thank you for making my life a whole lot easier, and a whole lot prettier!

  27. HOW FUN!!!! Im obsessed with all of them!!! Ive been looking for a temp wallpaper for my apartment, and this is amazing help!! <3

  28. Would love something on outdoor furniture/design. (Not sure a roundup is the best kind of post for it though). Thank you!

  29. omg, i love these. so nice to see them all in one place.

  30. Hey Emily. Your blog is awesome.

  31. A roundup of recliner sofas that don’t look like three airline seats jammed together would be great. There are no couches advertised that I would have in my home; surely there are designers who have tackled the problem of de-uglyfing these divans that are so desired by the male in the house.

    1. I just recently installed removable wallpaper from Livette’s Kids and it was so easy! What a quick way to make a big impact. It took less than 2 hours for the one wall. Blogging about it soon! Love your style Emily!

  32. Ahhh I wondered if you would be doing another round up! Loved reading through the one from 2015, and even though I am the designer for Surface House I hadn’t heard of some of these brands!!
    I love finding something new!!

    Great job, off to explore more of your posts! I can literally feel the energy in your writing!

  33. I am in love with the wallpaper you used for your daughter’s room! I’m pregnant with a baby girl and I would like to use the same paper for an accent wall in her room. When it comes to removing the paper (when we eventually sell the house, not in the immediate future) – how difficult is that with that particular vendor’s paper and paste etc? Would really love your thoughts! Love love you blog and insta feed, your babies are so adorable

  34. I’ve been in love with #57, the cloud pattern by Fornasetti, forever, but I haven’t had a place to permanently use it yet. I got so excited there was now a temporary option so I followed the link to anthropologie page thinking maybe they made a temporary version of it but even there it says “adhesive required”.

    Am I getting this wrong?!! Maybe I have a different understanding of temporary. I have used a few different papers from chasing paper and was happy with their application method. Please advise.

    Thanks!
