Raise your hand if you love wallpaper but live in a college dorm, rental property, or just don’t want to damage the walls in your home. I *totally* understand, but thanks to Wallflora, you no longer need to sacrifice gorgeous walls.
At the beginning of the week, I shared some inspiration for styling my new space. I have white walls, I have all white bedding and I love it. The crisp, clean look is my jam and I love how bright my space gets during the day. Since my room is on the smaller side, the white isn’t too starch but I do have one wall that does not have anything on it – no doors, no windows, nothing. And when I wake up in the morning, it’s the first thing I see (after the ceiling, of course). In short: I had to figure out what the heck I wanted to do with this wall. Enter removable wallpaper.
When deciding on a pattern, I knew I wanted to stay away from green tones (my room at my parents house is green & I needed something different) and wanted a neutral pattern/color palette so I wasn’t restricted with the colors I bring into my space on the future. The baby blue monstera leave pattern was the perfect balance of color and simplicity.
The application process:
My biggest piece of advice when applying removable wallpaper is to read the description on the website before ordering to ensure you order the correct amount of panels, no one wants to run out of wallpaper halfway through the application process.
My second piece of advice is to read the directions thoroughly, it’ll make the process go much more smoothly.
Putting up the first panel was an absolute struggle. My apartment is old so the walls aren’t very straight but thankfully the adhesive on the removable wallpaper allows you to fix any mistakes or unevenness that you might experience. Once I finished getting the first panel up, it was smooth sailing the rest of the wall. Don’t get discouraged if you struggle at first.
Whether you’re living in a dorm room, want to incorporate a fun pattern into your child’s bedroom or nursery, or live in an apartment like I do, removable wallpaper is such a great option to spruce up any room. I can’t wait for my room to be complete so I can show you guys the finished product. If there are any specific posts you’d like to see before I show the entire reveal, let me know in the comments below!
