Removable Wallpaper by Chasing Paper

by Grace Bonney

As much as I love the lack of repair work involved in being a renter, it always bums me out to be prohibited from making major changes like cabinets, flooring and wallpaper. I have a little tear-out booklet of wallpaper that I’m dying to try one day, but they’ve all been off-limits until I can afford a home. Thankfully, more and more designers are tackling the realm of removable wallpaper. Chasing Paper is one of them, and it just launched a line of colorful graphic papers. I know bold colors aren’t for everyone, but I always think bathrooms and closets are the perfect places to go a little nuts with bright colors or prints. Chasing Paper has around 10 designs to choose from, but my favorites are above and below. To make wallpaper installation easier on small spaces, Chasing Paper is currently selling paper in 2’ x 4’ panels ($25 each), so you can order a small quantity for a more petite space (like your average NYC bedroom or a backsplash). Click here to check out their current selection and shop online. I’m crossing my fingers that they do more guest collections with contemporary designers so that those of us who love unique design but not the permanence of wallpaper can have a wide range of options. Thanks to Anne for the tip! xo, grace
