Who says that apartment dwellers and home renters have to be exempt from the beauty that is wallpaper? Well, no one, if  Timothy Sue and Kate Zaremba have anything to say about it. These are just a couple of the artists bringing the joy of removable wallpaper to those that may not feel inclined to commit their walls to just one look. Looks like the possibilities are endless!
