Celebrate autumn with festive fall wallpaper
Fall is upon us, and with it comes some of nature’s most beautiful scenery. As the leaves turn and we’re surrounded by richly colored landscapes, many are inspired to capture and recreate that beauty in their homes. Redecorating with fall wallpaper is a chance to freshen up your space and celebrate the changing seasons.
All sorts of tasteful wallpaper fits the autumn theme, from traditional floral to modern abstract designs. Add some autumn room décor and a comfy throw blanket, and you’ll be thoroughly immersed in the cozy atmosphere that is sweater weather.
Which wallpaper designs are best for fall?
Botanicals are a recurring theme in fall wallpaper, particularly the maple leaves emblematic of the changing seasons. The designs best suited for fall incorporate one or more seasonal colors including red, yellow, orange and brown. Other styles, such as abstract and patterned wallpaper, work for fall, provided they feature one or more autumnal colors.
Types of wallpaper to consider
Peel-and-stick wallpaper is ideal for seasonal decorating, as it’s easy to install and remove. Since it already contains an adhesive, you simply peel the paper from the roll and attach it to the wall. The removal process is straightforward; all you have to do is peel the paper off the wall when you’re ready to redecorate.
Pre-pasted wallpaper has a paste that’s pre-applied and dried to the back of the paper. The paste is activated by spraying the back of the paper with water, then attaching the paper to the wall. To remove the paper, you spray it with water, let the paste soften, then peel the paper off the wall. It’s relatively easy to set up and take down, though less so compared to peel-and-stick options.
Traditional wallpaper requires the most effort to install and take down. This variety lacks an adhesive, meaning you have to apply glue or paste before attaching it to the wall. It doesn’t come off as easily as peel-and-stick or pre-pasted wallpaper; you can either rip or scrape it off in pieces, or apply a chemical remover.
