Hoot & Hangout Owl Tree Wall Decals

Nurseries and kids’ rooms are wising up.

A onetime star of ’70s crafting kits and macramé wall hangings has returned as the “it” critter for the baby-to-preschool set. Perched on crib bedding, bibs, lunch bags and backpacks, the owl is a decorative force with staying power, manufacturers and retailers say.

Parents of young children are welcoming the break from pinks, princesses and plastic. “The kids’ rooms now are more of an extension of the rest of the house,” says Paula Berberian, creative director for WallPops, a line of removable peel-and-stick wall art popular for kids’ rooms. When entering that space, “you’re not assaulted by a totally different look and feel,” she says.

This year, two owls feature prominently in WallPops’ $31 Hoot and Hangout bedroom wall-art kit, which also includes a 51-inch-tall tree. “That immediately rose to one of our best-sellers,” says Ms. Berberian. The $15 Owl Silhouettes collection comprises four 13-by-13-inch owls, two “sleepy” and two “wide awake.”

“Anything we do with owls is really popular,” Ms. Berberian says. WallPops is a brand of Brewster Home Fashions, of Randolph, Mass…. click here to read the whole feature on the Wall Street Journal On-line site.

Wallpaper without the Fuss: Get the Look with WallPops!

Peel and Stick Wallpaper with removable wall decals by WallPops

We love wallpaper! However, we all know that there are some situations where wallpaper is simply not a realistic option. When you are decorating an apartment that you rent, live in a dorm room, or are simply prone to frequent and wild fits of re-decorating, wallpaper can be a no-no. However, please don’t let that stop you from getting the look! Wallpaper has an unsurpassed influence on the ambiance of a room, adding color, texture and pattern that set the stage for the entire room. One decor trend with wallpaper that we are particularly keen on is creating a feature wall. This allows you to have more fun with the pattern and color without overwhelming the space. We have wall decals that create the look of wallpaper, without any of the paste! Especially when creating one feature wall of pattern, our wall decals are an affordable and simple solution to authentically design the fashionable look of wallpaper with the ease of peel & stick.

Stripes, Stripes, Stripes! A striped wall is dynamic and enduringly chic. From bold graphic black and white stripes to flirtatious pretty in pink stripes, nautical chic navy stripes or classy neutrals like taupe and soft green, a striped wall can really add a stylish finish to a space. Striped walls can be achieved with paint and tape, a messy labor of love with questionable success rates, or with wallpaper, or with WallPops for instant, foolproof ooh-la-la. No paint, no glue and no oops moments! The stripes come in continuous rolls which are easy to cut and splice so you can add as many or as few stripes as you wish, and even cut them into varying widths. We recommend using a ruler and a level to get your stripes just right, but if you make a mistake, no biggie! Simply pull the decal off and re-stick it again until it’s perfectly placed.Peel and Stick wallpaper with removable wall decals by wallPops striped wall Peel and Stick wallpaper with removable wall decals by wallPops striped wall Peel and Stick wallpaper with removable wall decals by wallPops striped wall

Polka Dot Wall peel & stick wallpaper with wall decalsLots of Dots! Polka dot walls can be cutsey fun for kids decor or they can be contemporary, like the room at the left. The modern bedroom below is soothing and chic with a grown-up feel, but the taupe dots on the walls add just the right dose of style so that it is not boring. The kitchen t the left has a retro-mod feel, and the patterned wall makes the white tulip table really pop! Colored dots on a solid wall, white or painted, give the illusion that the wall has a fashionable wallpaper. The key to making it look more like a wallpaper is to evenly space the dots. Willy nilly dots are more of a playful decor idea for a youthful room or a whimsical spirit. Below are more polka dot walls done with removable wall decals, making a vogue feature without elaborate stencils or wallpaper. Larger polka dots tend to have a more modern effect while smaller dots are sweeter and more dainty in decor.

Radiant Orchid in Decor

Radiant Orchid Decor IDea

Declared as the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid is an intoxicating mixture of fuchsia, purple and pink hues. An imaginative shade, Radiant Orchid brings serenity when incorporated throughout the home, and gives a vivid warmth to any space. Inspired by the exotic orchid flower, and found in designs around the world, this pretty purple Color of the Year is complemented by a wide array of accents and undertones, making it a true pleasure to execute in your own home.

Radiant Orchid is a totally different direction from last year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Emerald,” says Paula Berberian, Creative Director of Brewster Home Fashions for WallPops. “The softer shade makes quite a statement when paired with neutrals like taupe and cream, and is even more striking alongside brighter hues like turquoise and yellow.” Here, Berberian offers tips on how to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your home to create an elegant look.

Create an Accent Wall

Radiant Orchid Decor IDea

It’s often intimidating to introduce a new color into your home, so starting on a smaller scale makes it easier to take the plunge. Instead of dressing an entire room in Radiant Orchid, focus on just one area to test out the shade. The dining room is an ideal space for dramatic designs, so choose which wall serves best as the center of attention. Pictured above, our Plush purple stripes creates an ideal accent.  After adding the enchanting Radiant Orchid accents, the wall becomes the highlight of the room.

Add Accessories

Radiant Orchid Decor IDea

Radiant Orchid Decor Idea

Accessories like throws, pillows and rugs can quickly turn any space into a coordinated design with on-trend appeal. Subdued colors such as grey, cream and taupe work well in the bedroom, but can often come up short when you are trying to create a bold design.  Keep larger furniture and substantial details like comforters and curtains in neutral tones, but incorporate soft blankets and textured decorative pillows in Radiant Orchid for a touch of sophistication and style. Tie in the Color of the Year by arranging WallPops Plush Dots, Box and Stripes decals between  windows or above the bed for an all-around cohesive design.

Focus on Florals

If the idea of Radiant Orchid triggers visions of languid afternoons spent reading in the garden, that’s because orchids are tropical flowers! Capitalize on that exotic charm by filling your space with fresh flowers and captivating floral prints. Fresh pops of purple blooms in white vases will make any room feel more luxurious. Or, for a year round radiant orchid inspiration, decorate with floral wall decals!

Space Theme Wall Art

Long before Gravity made astronauts one of the most popular Halloween costumes of 2013, we were already preoccupied with the mystique of Space. Decor inspired by outer space opens up new worlds of style for your walls, with celestial beauty. Classic stars, moons and planets cross paths with rockets traveling to extraterrestrial destinations, and constellations tell the wonders of the night sky. Glow in the dark stars and planets decals bring a dazzling magic to your room at night, softly radiating the gathered light of the day back to you from above. Looking up into Space, we can’t help but feel a sense of wonder. Decorating with these themes brings the magic of the universe to life in our homes, with fantastic and fun results. Especially well suited to kids decor that both boys and girls can get excited about, a space themed room creates a timeless captivation.

Enchanted Autumn Decor Ideas

Zoe retro chic autumn theme decor idea thanksgiving diy decorAutumn is an enchanted time of year. It is the host to many beloved traditions, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, apple picking, everything pumpkin and so much more. After October 31 we put away the ghosts, witches and spiders to create festive decor schemes with a warmer more inviting feel.

Autumn decor draws on the colors of nature, bringing toasty orange, deep crimson, earthy brown and late blooming yellows inside for an homage to the season. Working with Fall branches and berries, re-purposing pumpkins into Thanksgiving settings, and playing with the warm glow of candles are all beautiful ways to enrapture your home with some autumn spirit. You can also play with leaves, gold glitter, feathers and late harvest beauties like sunflowers, mums, corn stalks and squash to entice a seasonal charm indoors. Decorating your mantle, adding traditional fall colored wall decals and creating pretty tablescapes with these hues and elements will create a welcoming look in your home. Adding pillows and throws in cozy colors instantly adds to the seasonal splendor of a room, too, especially when they play on the accent colors of your Autumn inspired decorations.
