Peel-and-stick wallpaper, which is easier to hang and less permanent than traditional “non-removable” styles, is your best friend for kids’ rooms—especially when your little ones are going through a particularly obsessive phase (all bears, all the time). When they outgrow this cute woodland style, you can easily remove and replace.

Though more convenient, removable wall coverings can run a little pricier than the traditional options. To mind your budget, apply in smaller doses, like these sweet, star-print decals, which can be stacked to run across a room or placed along the top of the wall as a celestial border.

How do you strike a balance in an artful teen’s room? Pick dominant colors (like purple and gold) to tie everything together. Jonathan Adler’s gray Malachite wallpaper leans more lilac than slate, which better suits the plum comforter, while the golden outlines give a slight nod to the rug, end tables, and fab chandelier.
