There’s nothing quite like recurring stay-at-home orders to spark interest in an interior design trend like temporary wallpaper. From home office makeovers to bedroom refreshes, making your space as comfortable, cozy, and personalized as possible has never felt more necessary—but if you’re a renter or simply a commitment-phobe, your home makeover likely stopped at new throw pillows and a quarantine candle. There might even be a home improvement project (or three) that proved too involved for you to actually finish over the last year. So if you’re looking for a way to add more color and personality to your space without putting forth much time or effort, humble peel-and-stick wallpaper might be the answer.
This modern design miracle looks and feels exactly like old-school wallpaper, but comes right off when you’re moving out or simply *over* your oversized crane phase. Installation is surprisingly simple—just remove any outlet covers, cut the temporary wallpaper to scale, peel off the protective layer, stick it to your wall, and smooth it over with a squeegee. It’s basically the textbook definition of high-impact, low-effort design.
Below, find the stylish and affordable temporary wallpaper companies that have perfected this low-lift art form, and decal your way to a fresh new space with our favorite prints.

From the time I came on, I think the prevailing sentiment was that she is in this broken world on this epic adventure journey. We knew we wanted to have a kick-ass character. I definitely wanted to have somebody, you know, having grown up with like Hong Kong action movies, where the women could just like lay waste to the bad guys. So knowing we wanted that adventure, that action, it felt very strange to have her suddenly stop in the middle of fighting a Druun, and being like [singing] this is my sword. So it felt like it wasn’t a good match for this particular project, but, you know, but we do have some beautiful songs in this.
Judi Dench has made a career of playing dignified (and not so dignified) women in her work. Many of today’s most successful actresses cite her as an influence for those roles. But in recent years, the Oscar winner has shown dignity and grace in public as she deals with losing her eyesight. The actress participated in a conversation about her battle for the London-based charity Vision Foundation, as reported by People Magazine. During the discussion, Dench revealed how she deals with reciting her lines on set:
Anna Kendrick’s response to Ellory Smith’s tweet was just Anna Kendrick being Anna Kendrick. Without even trying, the actress managed to be funny even when apologizing over a song. But “Cups” was everywhere after Pitch Perfect became a runaway hit. It was in commercials, television shows, social media, radio, etc. But that’s just how popular that song was with any and everybody replicating Kendrick’s scene on social media. Of course, young campers would be doing the full routine at camp – they were the target audience. Anyway, as the adage goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
But it was another TV character who inspired this look for Hadid. “She is dedicated to everyone responsible for The Queen’s Gambit,” Hadid shared on Instagram Stories, while her stylist, Panos Papandrianos, shared more angles on his own feed. “Ginger for Gigi 🧡🔥🧡,” he captioned the video and photos.
Hadid is far from the only one who’s been sucked into the riveting world of chess over the last few months. According to Netflix, 62 million households viewed The Queen’s Gambit in its first 28 days, making it the “biggest scripted limited series on Netflix ever.”
In fact, star Anya Taylor-Joy just took home the Best Actress in a Limited Series award at the Golden Globes for her layered performance as orphan-turned-chess champion Beth. Taylor-Joy even sported chess nail art for the occasion, though she traded in Beth Harmon’s strawberry bob for platinum mermaid locks that would make Rapunzel jealous.
Given the national obsession with The Queen’s Gambit, will Netflix rethink its miniseries status and give us a second season? Unlikely. “The last scene feels like a beautiful note to end the show on, so I’m not sure if we want to go on and answer that question. Maybe we can just let the audience imagine what comes next,” Taylor-Joy told Town & Country in February, though she told Deadline, “never say ‘never’ in Hollywood.”
While the chances of seeing Beth Harmon on-screen again are slim, at least we all have access to hair dye and a killer idea for this year’s Halloween costume.

So you finished WandaVision and aren’t quite sure what to do with life? Yeah, me too. All the fan theories and speculation about how the series would end has been all-consuming. And now that we know the fate of Wanda, Vision, and Agatha (for now), it’s understandable to feel like you just need more.
The good news: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, another series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will hit Disney+ later this month. Until then, let’s look at some other movies and shows you can watch to fill your time.
Whether you’re wanting more MCU fare, looking to revisit all the classic sitcoms referenced throughout WandaVision, or just in the mood for similar ~vibes~, we’ve got you covered.
See all the TV shows and movies like WandaVision, below.
If You Want to Stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Makimoff officially joins the MCU—alongside twin brother Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson)—during a post-credits scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But Age of Ultron is when we really learn about the twin’s background. More important, you can see why Pietro’s death is such a major source of Wanda’s grief during the events of WandaVision. Available to stream on Disney+
It’s been confirmed that more of Wanda’s story will be told in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the sequel to the 2016 film starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the surgeon turned sorcerer. Might as well catch up on Strange’s whole deal before the new movie premieres in 2022. Available to stream on Disney+
Spider-Man: Far From Home
The Westview Anomaly, as the events of WandaVision have come to be known, occur just a few weeks after half of humanity returns from the Snap in Avengers: Endgame. Interestingly, Spider-Man: Far From Home takes place eight months later, meaning it’s further in the MCU timeline. It gives Mr. Dell’s obsession with “witchcraft” a whole new meaning. Available to stream on Hulu
If You Want to See All the Sitcoms WandaVision References
The Dick Van Dyke Show
The first episode of WandaVision contains a lot of references to classic married-couple sitcoms like I Love Lucy and The Donna Reed Show, but the most influential of all is The Dick Van Dyke show. Director Matt Shakman talked with the show’s namesake over lunch to pick his brain before starting WandaVision. The scene where Vision almost trips over a chair? That’s a nod to the opening credits of The Dick Van Dyke Show. Not a coincidence: Later, in a flashback scene, we learn the ‘60s sitcom was Wanda’s favorite as a child. Available to watch for free on Pluto TV
A witch marries an ordinary man and tries her best to keep her suburban neighbors from finding out her magical secret in this classic ‘60s sitcom. Need I say more? It was a huge touchstone for the first two episodes of WandaVision, most obviously in the second episode’s opening credits. Available to stream on Crackle
The Brady Bunch
Episode four, “Now in Color,” nods to the aesthetics of blended-family comedy The Brady Bunch. The opening credits in WandaVision include the famous tile format of the OG sitcom, and you’ll notice that Wanda and Vision’s house in this episode looks awfully similar to the one designed by architect Mike Brady. Available to stream on Paramount Plus
WandaVision episode five includes a few references to Full House—a fun touch, considering star Elizabeth Olsen grew up watching her older sisters, Ashley and Mary Kate, on the ’90s sitcom. Available to stream on Hulu
Malcolm in the Middle
Malcolm in the Middle—a critically acclaimed, award-winning comedy about a dysfunctional working class family—dominated TV in the early aughts. WandaVision‘s episode six clearly draws inspiration from the show’s groundbreaking style. Talking directly to the camera, giving the kids in the family as much agency (if not more) than the parents, even the home decor—all touchstones included in “All-New Halloween Spooktacular!” Available to stream on Amazon Prime Video
In episode seven of WandaVision, the show starts breaking the fourth wall and follows the single-camera format that became popular in the 2010s and is still seen in most sitcoms today. Think: The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Modern Family. The latter seems to be the biggest inspiration for Wanda, whose mannerisms throughout the episode echo Modern Family star Julie Bowen. Available to stream on Peacock
If You Just Want Something That Feels Like WandaVision
The Truman Show
This 1998 psychological drama starring Jim Carrey came up often in discussions and think pieces about WandaVision, and for good reason. The film follows a man who thinks he lives a normal life—until he discovers he’s really been living on a large television set and everyone around him are actors. Not unlike Vision’s experience, eh? Available to stream on Hulu
While Sucker Punch is far from a perfect movie, or even a good one, it does feel worthy of mention here given its story: A young woman, enormously consumed with trauma and grief, builds an elaborate fantasy world around her as a form of protection. Available to rent on Amazon Prime Video
Like The Truman Show and WandaVision, Stay Tuned explores just how far one can “escape” into TV. John Ritter, Eugene Levy, and others star in this 1992 fantasy comedy about a couple who find themselves captured inside a hellish television set and must survive the various challenging and nightmarish TV shows they encounter in order to return to reality. Available to rent on Amazon Prime Video
Pleasantville is another project that came up a lot during the analysis of WandaVision. In it, two modern teens are transported into the black-and-white world of a 1950s sitcom. Remember when Wanda and Vision’s world is suddenly full of color? Pretty sure this is where the Disney+ series got the concept. Available to rent on Amazon Prime Video

During the recent IGN Fan Fest event, Wingard was on hand to field some big questions surrounding Warner Bros’ potential blockbuster. And right out of the gate, he was put on the spot and quizzed on whether Godzilla vs. Kong is merely a stop in the road to greater things, or the end to the Godzilla trilogy. Adam Wingard, optimistic but pragmatic as ever, had this to say:
Whether you are tired of ruining your bedding, are dealing with unpredictable spotting, or just want added protection, the best period underwear could be the solution you’re looking for. With a range of absorbent underwear on the market, there’s a number of factors to consider before choosing the right style for you, from the heaviness of your flow to your plans for the day (or night).
When shopping for something so personal, testimonials from happy customers can offer added trust in the product’s efficacy, so we did a deep dive to find out which period underwear is worth writing home about. These are the period panties women are logging on to sing the praises of—the undies that changed their lives for the better, from comfy, size-inclusive briefs to barely-there thongs.
Before you shop for the best period underwear, there are some things you should know about wearing them. Read up on the information to know now, from an ob-gyn and period underwear manufacturers, ahead.
How period underwear works
In essence, period undies work the same way as regular underwear does—but with the added absorption setting them apart. Expertly designed menstrual underwear shouldn’t feel different to the touch or on the body, but they should include an added layer of fabric that can either work in lieu of a pad or tampon or provide extra protection to avoid leakage.
“Just like each woman, period underwear types are unique and serve different purposes,” says ob-gyn and pH-D Feminine Health adviser Ruth Arumala, D.O. Some create an extra barrier of protection from leakage; others take the place of other feminine hygiene products.” Different brands use various patented technology to ensure optimal absorption, and every company in this roundup is backed by real women who swear by the products.
How to use period underwear
First step: Put them on. Second step: Breathe easy and forget about ’em. But in all seriousness, the most important factor of period underwear is convenience, and how you choose to use them will depend on your personal needs and preferences. While some women seek added protection to avoid disaster stains during busy days when their menstrual flow is extra heavy, others are looking for worry-free REM cycles and workouts, and period undies can help provide peace of mind (even if you choose to wear a tampon with them).
How to wash period underwear
The first thing to do once you take off your period underwear (never wear them for more than 24 hours) is run them under cold water until the water runs clear. Once most of the blood is removed from the gusset, you can throw them in with a regular load of laundry on a delicate, cold-wash cycle (be sure not to use hot water to avoid setting any remaining blood into the underwear). You can also put them in a delicates bag to keep them extra safe in the washer. Due to the high-tech nature of the fabric, you’ll want to hang-dry rather tumble. Once the underwear is nice and dry, fold them up and bring them out on your next moon cycle.
Can period underwear replace pads?
Every body and flow is different, but the short answer is yes, period underwear can replace pads. Because of technology used to develop fabric that can hold multiple tampons’ worth of blood, it’s generally not recommended to wear pads with your absorbent undies. Experts at Modibodi, Thinx, and Knix agree you can nix pads altogether. Arumala cosigned this point, explaining it’s more common to pair period panties with tampons or menstrual cups. “Most period-panty users either wear them solo or use tampons or cups,” she says. “It is rare to use pads or panty liners with period panties.”
Benefits of using period underwear
From keeping your clothes clean to going easier on the environment and saving money, there’s a wide array of benefits to using period underwear. Knix founder Joanna Griffiths dished on a few key benefits: She says period panties “take away the worry of not knowing exactly when you might get your period throughout the day and remove the need to carry panty liners, pads, and tampons”; “positively impact our environment”; and “revolutionize menstruation worldwide, especially for those who may not have access to, or cannot afford, expensive disposable products.” Arumala adds that they’re useful for “preventing vulvar and/or vaginal irritation, as well as when culture or religion reasons preclude use of internal products.”
Where to buy period underwear
Now that we’ve covered the most common questions surrounding period underwear, it’s time to shop! Ahead, the nine best period panties online reviewers can’t imagine their life without—and that’s on period.

Star Wars is a property that has been passed down across generations, with the iconography immersed into pop culture. Characters like Chewbacca have shown up throughout the franchise’s timeline, including the recent sequel trilogy. And it turns out that The Rise of Skywalker had a deleted scene where Kylo Ren tortured the beloved Wookie.
Ever since it was announced that Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, will be sitting down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview, the British press has seemingly accelerated its mission to tarnish her reputation. Even Buckingham Palace itself has launched an investigation into accusations that Markle bullied palace aides.
Well, Adams, who played Markle’s love interest on Suits as well as attended her wedding in 2018, has shared his thoughts on the entire situation. “Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits. From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family,” he began. “She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige and power accrued.”
The actor then described Markle as “a powerful woman with a deep sense of morality,” adding that he’s watched her navigate her life since marrying Prince Harry “in astonishment.”
“She fell in love, moved to a new country, became a household name across the entire globe, and began the difficult work of trying to find her place in a family dynamic that can at best be described as complicated and at worst, seemingly archaic and toxic,” he continued. “It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, clickbaiting vitriol spewed in her directions from all manner of media across the UK and the world but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her.”
The actor then took aim directly at the royal family, describing their latest investigation as a “stunning example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance.”
“It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, [whose] newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of ‘bullying’ against a woman who herself was basically forced to [flee] the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health,” he wrote.
“Find someone else to admonish, berate and torment,” he concluded the eight-part mic drop. “My friend Meghan is way out of your league.”
