Vancouver muralist designs renter-friendly peel-and-stick solution to plain walls

What to do with those bare, boring walls?
Vancouver muralist Tierney Milne collaborated with Otto Studio to design a collection of peel-and-stick renter-friendly wallpaper and decals.

One downside of renting, if it isn't a squishy solarium or someone's living room, can be the lack of creative freedom when it comes to decorating.

A few taped-up posters and a small potted plant can liven up the space, but what to do with those bare, plain walls?

Vancouver muralist Tierney Milne designed a renter-friendly solution: peel-and-stick wallpaper. 

The collaboration with Otto Studio, a local women-owned business, consists of nine wallpaper designs, one decal set, and two art prints. 

“We’re seeing people really wanting to bring fun, colour and playfulness into their spaces – and removable wallpaper is the perfect, low-commitment solution no matter if you own or rent.” says Otto Studio co-founder Jen Cook.

The nine wallpaper designs come in around 35 colourways and the decal in five colourways, all in nostalgic play, bold shapes, and kaleidoscope patterns.

"While I am drawn primarily to gem-tones and retro pops of saturation, the collection also includes more muted and calming colourways to give as much range as possible to mix and match and choose which colours bring others the most joy," says Milne.

When the Vancouver muralist isn't painting the sides of buildings all over the world, she makes art in a co-working space in the Olympic Village neighbourhood.
