My favorite part of Evie's nursery is the first item we bought and installed in the room, her zebra wallpaper. Since her room is so tiny (it's actually an office), I wanted the walls to be a crisp white to make the room look as big and bright as possible. However, once it was painted I felt like it was missing something. We opened up half the closet to create more space and it became the perfect spot to add the touch of whimsy the room needed. We rent our apartment, so I knew I couldn't do anything permanent and was delighted to find removable wallpaper in modern and playful designs by Kate Zaremba. When we added the zebra wallpaper it was like the boring office was magically transformed into a nursery!
Kate Zaremba has so many designs to choose from that we had a hard time deciding on the zebras. Fortunately, we were able to order samples sheets for $5 and hang a few on the wall for a week to get a feel for each of them. Even though the Matisse Is My Muse print looked so lovely and added a splash of color, I decided I wanted a neutral nursery and the zebras were a perfect fit - neutral, but still kid-like and cheerful! We even kept the sample square and hung it as artwork over her changing table with a frame from Ferm Living.
The best part is that the wallpaper was easy to put up and is completely removable so we didn't have to worry about jeopardizing our security deposit! Each wallpaper design is hand-drawn by Kate, and even though it's easy to take down, it will last up to 20 years if installed properly!
Here are a few other designs I love:
These would all look amazing on a statement wall or even in a bathroom or on a shelf, like the print below is used. They would also look great as shelf liners in kitchen cabinets or in a dresser! You can also buy each design as gift wrap!
