The downside of Renting...

..... has nothing to do with the lack of a tax write-off, it's that you can't wallpaper!!! I can't even paint!! Ugh. One of my good friends ordered wallpaper panels through Weego Home and I love this idea.

My friend's bedroom....love that Florence Broadhurst print!!


I spent hours on Walnut and I still go back to Osborne and Little's Asuka print. I first fell in love with it after seeing Michelle Smith's apartment. I think this would be fabulous in my living room.

Asuka in Gold


I love the yellow version Smith used but I can't seem to find it on Osborne and Little or Walnut. So two questions....or three!

1) Does anyone know if this pattern is still available in yellow?
2) Any recommendations on how one goes about ordering panels? I'm not about to "DIY" with this expensive paper!!
3) Anyone (designers) who has done this, any tips?

Ugh. I feel your pain (kind of). Instead I hot glue (depending on the surface) or nail a cute sheet. It looks a lot like wallpaper! :)

S&G, I had to come over and ask--who was Mama Jean with? Did she walk in with attitude? Was she looking at you every time you pulled out your camera? Did she behave herself?
EEEK!

It's not a lost cause... you can order "paste the wall" wallpaper from Graham & Brown that is an easy application and easy removal for your walls. I rent, and I'm about ready to wallpaper my aparmtent in NYC. The wallpapers are fantastic. Sherwin Williams also has great EasyChange wallpaper that's self adhesive. It's definitely worth looking into. Both sites let you order samples.

If you decide to go for it and wallpaper check with me for pricing because I order direct for clients and can often beat Walnuts prices (sorry Walnut - I love you!! :) Also, I can give you the name of the woman who does our installations who is pretty affordable and does impeccable work. Good luck!
