Temp Style-Removeable Wallpaper

I was a military brat growing up.  I was used to living in temporary houses and, therefore, we couldn't permanently alter the state of the walls.  I learned a few nifty tricks from my mom on how to decorate creatively to work around this challenge. 

In fact, my first townhouse after college, I literally used laundry starch to hang a bed sheet as wallpaper on our kitchen wall.  It was a bold navy and white gingham print and once the fabric was securely starched in place, it stayed there for three years.  When we got ready to move out, I literally stripped the sheet right off the wall and the paint remained undamaged underneath.

Now that I'm "all grown up" I own my house and can wallpaper my walls.  Only I haven't pulled that trigger yet because, well, it seems so permanent.  Imagine my delight when I recently discovered wallcandyarts...temporary wallpaper that can easily be removed and applied to another location in the house.

 Some of the wallcandyarts prints look destined for a kid's room.  But I can also see them in a kitchen, a laundry room, a mudroom, a bathroom...even an office.

For a more grown up temporary print, I discovered Tempaper.
