Ask almost anybody, and they'll likely agree – choosing wallpaper involves careful consideration. This design decision is among the most powerful in every room, after all. However, RuPaul's peel-and-stick wallpaper just made the process instantly less stressful.
The star of his eponymous Drag Race show may be synonymous with reality TV, but he's increasingly proving to be quite the design force (his Beverly Hills estate, created in collaboration with Martyn Lawrence Bullard, only emphasizes this further). His latest venture, the aforementioned wallpaper, brings his flair to abodes far beyond the Golden State – and it comes without the commitment.
Peel-and-stick wallpaper is just as versatile as the name hints. Simply, the back of the paper features a removable adhesive that allows us to peel paper away without damaging our surface. There's no need for tools, steam, or water, and it can be done in seconds – making it the answer to renter's prayers.

RuPaul's collection, made in collaboration with WallPops, comprises designs inspired by the things that spark joy. '[WallPops] allowed me to express my wide range of emotions, aesthetic, and flair for design. I'm motivated by music, laughter, joy, dancing…and those are the inspirations I used for these fabulous wallpapers,' RuPaul says.
'I am obsessed with style, colors, and texture. These things bring me joy, and I believe every human alive is responsible for creating joy in their own life. It doesn't have to be difficult, though – it can be as simple as discovering what your favorite color is and surrounding yourself with it.'
In true RuPaul style, the prints are beautiful and bold, making them perfect for a statement accent wall, vibrant powder room, or nook. However, the varying aesthetics mean they'll work in homes of every style – whether we sway towards Old Hollywood (like RuPaul's home) or a more vintage bohemian look.
We're buying into the look with our favorite picks via WallPops below.
An upbeat and contemporary take on traditional floral trails, this illustrative print breathes life into any space with ease.
This classic houndstooth pattern promises to make a vivacious statement in any space. And this brown colorway is a subtle twist on the classic.
Florals may be traditional, but this upbeat colorway offers a more contemporary aesthetic that will serve as an asset in every modern home.
This Hollywood Art Deco-inspired print pays homage to the style icon himself. Yes, the lettering spells out “RuPaul” in duo-tone negatives, meaning it's fun, without being too obvious.
Much like its gray counterpart, this wallpaper is a tribute to the designer himself. We love the monochromatic colorway (the boldest of the two) that will make an unrivaled statement in any room.
This fanciful print is both striking and sharp, activating the wild side of every home. We love the brown and white combination, inspired by suede, for the ultimate luxe effect.
