Wallpaper That Sticks (as Long as You Want)

A Duo of Removable Wallpaper Options

Sticky parenting situation No. 3,478: decorating a toddler’s room without committing to a color scheme or theme.

Let the predicament roll off your back with two new removable wallpaper options.

WallCandy Arts
Known for amusing and delightful wall decals, WallCandy Arts introduces new peel-and-stick wallpaper ($338 for four rolls) that has the same free spirit as its mural counterpart. Choose from bold stripes (Neapolitan, Americana, sorbet) and punchy graphic patterns (London buses, mustaches, popsicles, rainbows). No need to prep the walls; the nontoxic vinyl strips stick on and peel off without causing surface damage.

For more sophisticated styling, try Blik’s pattern wall tiles ($39 for two or four, depending on the textile). The self-adhesive, removable fabric rectangles come in patterns of flowers, birds, trees, and abstract designs, and they’re perfect for creating visual interest in shared adult/child spaces (read: family room wall or mudroom door). Plus, the tiles are easy to cut. We used ours to frame a family bulletin board in our foyer.

In other words, easy come, easy go.

mark giglio toys!Where Handcrafted Meets Imagination
Plastic’s fantastic — for the bathtub. But for toys strewn about the living room, we like Mark Giglio’s dolls, tops, and textiles. Inspired by both traditional Japanese kokeshi and the folk modernism of Alexander Girard, the artist’s scrap-wood figures jump-start imaginative play and double as works of art.
