Happy Birthday to America with Red, White And Blue Beautiful!
The 4th of July marks the day that America signed the Declaration of Independence back in 1776. In celebration of Americas birthday, red, white, and blue are everywhere! Fireworks will flash in the sky, parades shall strut their stuff down Americas streets, and people everywhere will wave flags. This patriotic day is festive and fun, full of summer traditions. If you are hosting a 4th of July party, have a ball decorating! WallPops red, white and blue dots, blox, and stripes make adding a touch of Americana ultra simple, with striking impact. Unlike the decor schemes of certain holidays, these looks could fly year-round! For an a la mode year round look, that is decidedly white and blue, take a peek at Jonathan Adler’s Carnaby WallPops. Blue and white are so crisp together, a clean and refreshing splash of sass. Add a ruby hued vase, or a fresh bouquet of red gerber daisies, and voila! Your home is ready to party!

From New York shop windows, to the streets of Milan, our favorite stores on-line, and throughout the mall, bright, bold prints with a global-chic vibe have been strutting their stuff in the sun this year! Cultured and fun, these prints make a statement of worldly fashion savvy. This powerful trend has had a liberating effect on our decorating and fashion sense, allowing us to mix styles and prints like never before with confident abandon. Picture a canary yellow African wax fabric pillow, resting on an orchid Moroccan pouf ottoman with a blue chevron pattern throw blanket… gorgeous!
Where once these vivid colors may have been shocking and (gasp!) clashing, now they are invigorating and a la mode. Influenced by global ventures, uniting color and pattern traditions of different cultures, these exotic fashions boast touches of Africana, animal prints, tribal chic patterns and romantic suzani and paisley designs from the Middle East. Peruse the gallery of striking wall art below from WallPops and plan to add some worldly touches to your home decor! Be tempted by shimmering patterns inspired by the golden island sun of Greece in Santorini and Geo Circles, enticing Casbah room panels with an Arabic intrigue, artisanal tree wall art, ethnic Persian textile suzani patterns, distant island prints like Bali, and chic animal print wall decals. Invigorate your walls with an adventurous splash of spicy style!
Saying Thank You to a Special Teacher
The end of a school year is always exciting, and also comes with a touch of bittersweet reverie. Marking the ever turning carousel of time, the last day of school is a very symbolic event. Teachers are a vital part of our children’s journey. In between learning about cursive and tadpoles, multiplication and music, teachers also deliver life wisdom, and negotiate social dynamics. Acknowledging the dedication and time that a teacher has spent over the year is a wonderful gesture, one that shows appreciation, and gives your child a chance to express a gracious goodbye. WallPops are a beautiful thank you gift for a teacher. A lot of teachers use WallPops in their classrooms to add a fun, personal touch without damaging school walls. The dry-erase boards and calendar decals are also handy for making daily notes, practicing math, spelling, and handwriting, and keeping track of things like science experiment results. The peel and stick alphabet decals are an awesome addition to any classroom! They can be arranged as a beautiful, educational alphabet. Or, since the set comes with multiples of each letter, these decals can be arranged to label areas with messages like “wash your hands!” and “library books”. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for perfect teacher’s gifts!
