Renters and DIY weekend-warrior homeowners know that peel-and-stick wallpaper, also known as self-adhesive removable wallpaper, can transform a room in a matter of minutes. Applying it is just as easy as it sounds: you simply peel off the backing and adhere it to the wall. Unlike traditional wallpaper, there’s no need to add messy glue, and the paper is designed to easily be removed from painted, non-textured walls without leaving them in need of a fresh coat of paint. Best of all, you can use it on more than just walls — you can use it on areas like stair risers, bookshelves and unfinished furniture.

Ben and Erin Napier, the team behind HGTV’s “Home Town,” have launched a new peel-and-stick wallpaper collection with York Wallcoverings that’s making hearts swoon. Since the husband-wife duo has a passion for restoring historic homes, patterns pay homage to heirloom wallpaper patterns of the early 20th century.

The Erin & Ben Co. Premium Peel + Stick Wallpaper collection comes in a variety of styles, from free-spirited boho designs, to whimsical folk-art and vintage botanicals. All wallpapers come in 20 1/2 inch-by 20-foot rolls, covering 34.16 square feet of space, and prices range from $65 to $70 per roll.

The wallpaper is available at York’s website as well as the Napier’s own Laurel Mercantile.

Cottontail Toile Premium Peel + Stick Wallpaper ($65)

York Wallcoverings

Filled with vines, floral stems and rabbits, this cute toile print can add a touch of whimsy to a child’s bedroom or a powder room at $65 per 34.16 square feet. To apply, start with a clean, dry, smooth surface. Wait a minimum of four weeks before applying peel-and-stick wallpaper to newly painted surfaces.

It helps to have two people to hang the paper. Pre-cut the strips to the wall height, leaving an extra inch or two at the top and bottom for trimming. Peel 12 to 14 inches off the backing away at a time, and apply firm pressure to remove any air bubbles. While this toile is so new it only has two reviews, one person mentioned it lines up beautifully.
