DIY Coffee Table Upcycle

This video shows several ways to totally reinvent furniture with our decals. From adding a seasonal splash of color and design to creating a chic stained glass effect, this video shows how easy it can be to reinvent  your current pieces.

The upcycling movement is all the rage in the arts, crafts and building world. It has taken the DIY movement to a new height of eco-chic accomplishment, repurposing items to brand new functions and forms, with eclectic and remarkable results. Before you buy new pieces, we recommend “shopping” your own home to see if you have anything that could be reinvented with a chic new identity. You can also save money and achieve a fulfilling sense of accomplishment by purchasing a used piece and making it your own with personalized upgrades. Painted furniture, for example, has been trending in home decor. Outdated wood pieces, especially, have enjoyed a renaissance of style after receiving a fresh coat of paint in an a la mode hue.

The beginning of April marks a renaissance of life outdoors! While natures first greens of the season are unfurling and purple hyacinth are popping up outside, the interior of your home should also enjoy a refreshed look. This is the time to let the light in, swapping out thick curtains for sheers and lace, and sprinkle your home with inspiring pops of pretty! Here are 5 ways to use Springs color and home decor trends in your space for a rejuvenated style.

Splash of Color

This Season, pastels are bathing everything in delicate hues of pink, pistachio, baby blue and lavender. These midtone versions of Easter candy hues are delightful and chic, adding a creamy dream soft beauty to everything from swimsuits to kitchen appliances. Somewhat reminiscent of the 1950s, these tender hues have an inviting and fresh feel. Try painting a wooden chair, making a feature wall, or introducing a new accessory into your home this season in a pretty pastel tint.

Blossoming Branches Or Potted Bulbs

It is widely known that a vase of fresh flowers brings a room to life. This year, think outside the bouquet and try decorating with branches or potted bulbs instead. Not only do these options last longer than cut flowers, they also have a sophisticated whimsy. Spring sprigs, like pussy willows, almond tree boughs and flowering cherry tree branches add height and enchantment to decor. Buy cut branches or snip your own to enjoy the gradual blossom of nature unfolding indoors. Potted bulbs provide a similar sense of charm, building anticipation as a spike of fresh green leaves slowly buds into a colorful posy of flowers.

Floral Prints

Florals never really go out of style, they just take on new tendencies each season. This year it seems watercolor florals, pixelated graphic florals and vintage chic retro florals are all the rage. Pick your passion or fee free to mix and match, because you simply cannot go wrong with flowers in the Springtime. Try mixing floral prints into the room with a tablecloth, a framed piece of art or wall decal kit, a garland of blossoms strung across a window, or in accent pieces like plates, vases or even napkins.

Pillow Update

We recommend swapping out pillows often! It is one of the quickest and most effective ways to renew a space. In the Winter we like to cuddle up on the couch, surrounded by fabrics like fur, velvet, and warm knits. April is the perfect time to trade these pillows for bright and cool new looks, with seasonally appropriate fabrics like linen, cotton and lace. Experiment with the seasons fascination with metallics, mixing pastels with gold accents and fun florals with shimmery sequins.

Bowl of Beauty

Is there anything more welcoming than a bowl full of treats to enjoy? Think of the sweet lady who always has candy on her desk, your favorite neighborhood restaurant with the delicious mints, or your Martha Stewart channeling relative who always has little snacks out to enjoy. Get seasonal and sweet with your own little dish of goodies – it’s an opportunity to bring out your cutest dish and to make somebody smile – even yourself! Or, for a purely aesthetic display, try a bowl of floating blossoms, artichokes, or moss. To make your own decorative vessel check out our video on updating plain vases with designer decals. The results are gorgeous!

 

 

Walls that Inspire with Words to Live By

David Bowie Heroes QuoteImagine walking into a room and being greeted by the decor. Literally. The walls look back at you and seem to smile, with a cheerful affirmation such as “All You Need is Love”… or “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”. With the right quotes, your walls can truly inspire you and your guests. Wall words can include snippets of favorite songs and poems, like “We Can Be Heroes” from David Bowie, classic nursery rhymes like “Row, Row, Row your Boat” for a darling baby decor idea, and expressive wall quotes. Love being unique? Remind yourself and your roommates everyday with the “Never let Anybody Dull Your Sparkle” design. Bringing together decorative fonts together with the art of poetry, a wall quote is artistic and thought provoking.

Inspiring Wall Quote Decal Kit

If you want to spell out your own message, you can bring any phrase to life with the alphabet wall decal sets. With multiples of each letter, and several colors and fonts to choose from, these letters let you express anything from a simple and unique name to your personal mantra or favorite saying. You can even move the letters around if your sentiment changes from time to time. Change your mind? Change your design!

Alphabet Wall Decals Spell Out Your Own Wall WordsWe also love the concept of using letters and words to personalize items, designate an area, or make a seasonal sentiment. We have seen decals used at baby showers to declare exciting news, such as “it’s a boy!” We have seen fun rooms that added a festive phrase like “merry and bright” or “happy Easter” to walls during the holiday season as part of the decor. Adding a name to your child’s door or a piece of furniture can be a great use of font as art, as well as a way to keep things organized.
