25 Vintage Peel and Stick Wallpaper That'll Wow Your Walls
In 2021, what's old is officially new again. The recent cottagecore trend, grandmillennial phenomenon, and traditionalism revival are proving that the design world is skewing away from sleek, mid-century modernism and toward pieces with a story. If our inklings are correct, we'll start to see storied pieces everywhere: in our large furniture, smaller accent items, and anchoring rugs. So, why should your walls be any exception? There are a lot of vintage-inspired wallpaper designs that will give your space an old-school edge.
But, just because these vintage-inspired wallpaper styles harken back to yesteryear doesn't mean they're stuck in the past. In fact, many patterns are now available in a peel and stick option. Unlike traditional wallpaper-which can be both permanent and time-consuming to install-peel and stick is as easy to apply as hanging up a poster. And, since it doesn't require a stubborn paste, you can remove this temporary wallpaper whenever you want. (Read: It's perfect for rental apartments.)
