The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - DECORATE - More lux­e­

Plain walls are pretty typ­i­cal when you’re rent­ing, but with re­mov­able wall­pa­per now avail­able they’re not some­thing you nec­es­sar­ily have to put up with.

Luxe Walls di­rec­tor and in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tor Ju­lia Hill says all of their de­signs can be printed on can­vas, which you can put up your­self — and it’s 100 per cent re­mov­able.

“We get a huge amount of renters that want to style their home,” she says. “Of­ten when peo­ple rent they’re not al­lowed to hang a pho­to­graph on the wall, or a paint­ing.

“Per­son­al­is­ing your liv­ing space and know­ing that you’re not go­ing to dam­age the walls is a great op­tion.”

Ju­lia says peo­ple pri­mar­ily want wall­pa­per in the be­d­rooms and liv­ing spa­ces, typ­i­cally to create fea­ture walls.

“You can se­lect wall­pa­per to go with your cush­ions and fur­ni­ture and bring all the ac­ces­sories in and make it feel like ev­ery­thing’s come to­gether as an at­trac­tive and stylish space, rather than just a space you’re liv­ing in,” she says.

Ju­lia says the re­mov­able wall­pa­per is risk free, but it won’t work well if the paint it’s be­ing at­tached to con­tains Te­flon, be­cause the wall­pa­per won’t stick.
