A wallpapered room is a wonderful thing, but installing it is quite another. In a rental apartment, even temporary wallpaper can feel like a disproportionately large undertaking considering you still have to get all the lines straight, the air bubbles removed, and probably set aside a whole weekend to figure out how to do it.
Designer Kerri Rosenthal has found an easier way: Her new collection of "paperless" wallpaper is simply a pack of hand-sized decals that you stick up on the wall to create a pattern. The illustrations she chose for the line are what make them so fun: watercolored blotches called "Dust Bunny," palm branches in burgundy and black, anchors, tropical trees, hearts, polka dots, even rainbows, all rendered in her signature painterly style.
This is wallpaper installation for dummies. No measuring, no planning, no tools to speak of—just a pack of stickers to distribute randomly across the wall in ten minutes, tops. You don't even need to move the furniture. Just sticker around it! And if that doesn't convince you, there's the price: Each $85 pack contains twelve decals, roughly enough to cover a large wall. Plus, you could remove them and use them in a new space if you have to move eventually. Considering even "inexpensive temporary wallpaper"—which you can definitely remove, but most definitely not reuse in another apartment—might run $30 a roll, and each roll is only a few feet wide so you'll need a lot of them, the decals are a pretty good deal.
If you're thinking, Wait, so it's just a pack of big removable stickers? you're not wrong. But finding a bunch of those that are actually cute on the wiles of the internet is easier said than done. Kerri even offers some of the designs in variety packs, so your allover design feels custom and playful. Nobody has to know they're stickers.
