It’s been almost 15 years since Tempaper, the very first peel-and-stick wallpaper, arrived on the home decor scene. In the decade and a half since, the market has exploded with options, but Tempaper always keeps it interesting with things like collaborations with Bobby Berk, HGTV’s Genevieve Gorder, and even Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. Last year was all about their vinyl floor rugs, but this year they’re back with new wallpaper patterns. Their latest range, Wanderlust, which launches today, features 10 prints inspired by travel and faraway destinations after a year spent in lockdown.
From a fun squiggle stripe that calls to mind an Amalfi coast cabana to a painterly damask design that feels a bit Parisian, there’s something for everyone in this line. “Wanderlust revives traditional print techniques from around the globe and translates them using a modern approach and rich, earthy tones,” says Jennifer Matthews, chief creative officer and co-founder of Tempaper. “The prints exude a soothing, uninhibited spirit that will breathe new life into your home.”
Matthews personally finds herself drawn to Sunbeam, a smaller scale sun pattern with a retro ‘70s look that’s pictured above. “Paired with the metallic copper, it radiates sophistication yet remains playful, and I love how orderly the repeat is,” she says. “I can see it working nicely in closets, bathrooms, and on ceilings.”
On the other hand, Matthews’ twin sister, fellow co-founder, and Tempaper CEO Julia Au says her favorite is Block Print Leaves. “The palm stripes bring a rhythm and movement to walls that’s striking in the black jade colorway,” says Au of the pattern pictured here above. “Layered with plants and textures, it will create the perfect bohemian setting in living rooms, bedrooms, and beyond.”
All of the designs in this line retail for $39.99 per roll, which covers about 28 square feet of space. I have Tempaper in my bedroom, and I can confidently say it’s easy to apply. So easy, in fact, that I may consider switching up what I originally put up seven years ago when I first moved into my place with one of these new prints.
