Spruce Up the Place with Chinese Wall Stickers

Who Doesn’t Love Stickers?

If you want a quick and easy way to add some of your own accents to your apartment without spending a lot of time, money or thought, you should get a wall sticker. At less than 100rmb, they are pretty cheap. And they are stickers, so they should be fun to apply.  

Sinosize Your Living Space

As you watch American DVDs and order from Sherpas, it is easy to forget where you are. If you want to add a touch of China your apartment a bit, you can just get a couple cool China-themed stickers to serve as classy little reminders. Meet this old guy. I think he is pulling some of the same poses as our old friend from the Bo-Staff post.


These clear/black Chinese opera faces are pretty sincere. Out of context, they could definately be mistaken for African tribal styles, or perhaps some minor character from the most recent Star Wars movies. 


Space Invaders

If you would rather your home be a safe haven from China, you can check out some other great styles. This one is almost like Space Invaders, except the classic aliens are replaced with what looks like normal airplanes. I think it looks cool. If you want the classic Space Invader’s aliens, and come to think of it, of course you do, you can find those on Taobao also.


Monochrome Organic 

Basic patterns like this one are the most popular on Taobao, and are what you will probably see the most of if you don’t add any extra keywords. And you probably can’t go wrong with a brown flower-lookin’ thing like this one.

    Hi Usha!

    Yeah these wall stickers are pretty sweet. The website where you buy them is Taobao.com. But if you don’t live in China, or don’t want to deal with the process of signing up for Taobao, you can just email a Taobao Agent. Just tell them what you want and they will make it easy.

    Happy shopping!

    So are they like transfers that you add on yourself to the wall by wetting it? Or is it like a huge sticker that you’ll never be able to get off the wall afterwards?

    They should all peel off without incident, I think. The one I have on my wall peels off perfectly with no residue, even though the wall behind it is notoriously brittle.
