It’s that time of the year again—dust off the backpacks, lunch boxes and prepare for the kids to go back to school. Honestly, where did the summer go? We’re always on the hunt for cool and different school supplies that stand out from the usual pencil box and file folders. Luckily for us, we were recently introduced to WallPops, which is a premier line of peel-and-stick wall art (wall decals and stickers) from Brewster Home Fashions. They have a cool and creative line of new offerings that add a unique style to jazz up any back to school routine.
I have been reviewing one of the Organization Kits, which for us is more of a family organizing system to help us juggle all of the activities, homework and sports that seem to overwhelm us from a scheduling perspective. I decided to choose the Kolkata Organization Kit, which is a subtle white and grey kit that is accented with jewels. I applied it to the walls in our kitchen, which is really the hub of just about every family (it definitely is for us). This is where we plan our meals; figure out who is going where each day and when we have a day of rest (which is not very often). It’s nice to have this area for all of us to write down important dates or notes.
Many student accommodations insist on the no-nail holes rule in dorm room and student housing walls. In most cases, not even tape is allowed. So how does a decor-conscious student get creative when displaying art in their personal space? Here are some alternatives that will allow you the luxury of adding personality without breaking any rules.
Stick with it
Easy to apply and always easy to reposition, artsy decals stick to any smooth surface. Black/White Frames Kit designed by Jonathan Adler for WallPops, $43, WallPops.com.
We adore Rachael Ray and we are huge fans of Genevieve Gorder from HGTV, too! so, we were over the moon with excitement when Rachael & Genevieve featured our Black Jack Stripes on a recent episode! A viewer wrote in asking for advice on how to make her small bathroom appear more spacious. Genevieve had lots of great tips, including adding our stripes decals to enhance the perception of space. By drawing the eye up and down the wall, the stripes added to the illusion that the room was larger. We love the results of all of her suggesions! Check out the full video herefor the whole story!
Sometimes it takes just the littlest thing to make your life easier. Design and organizing experts offer their best tips for making your house a comfortable, efficient home.
1. “Everything, everything, everything,” says professional organizer Stacy Erickson, who specializes in child and family environments. “From spare change to lunchboxes to sports equipment, nothing should live on the counter or floor permanently.”
… 7. A nice big calendar on the wall in the kitchen is the easiest way to keep everyone on the same page. Add a dry-erase board (for family notes) and an a corkboard (for permission slips and appointment cards) to create a simple message center. Try the all-in-one Floral Medley Organizer Kit from Wall Pops.

Inject some style into your space on the cheap with these design tips
So many ambitious homeowners are afraid to invest money in their places, knowing they will be moving onward and upward every couple of years until they reach the final home of their dreams.
Owning a temporary or transitional space doesn’t mean it can’t evoke style and reflect your taste… Here’s where you should and should not spend your money:
DON’T invest in fancy trims, moulding installations or painting an entire room. Adding easily-removable wall decals or painting a focal wall a fashionable colour are two options that can easily be removed or erased when you are ready to sell. No need to paint or add mouldings to add character to your space; simply stick up removable wall decals and create the focal wall of your dreams. Wall Pops Stripes from $15, WallPops.com

We were honored to be included in a boys room decor idea article by Erika Flynn. Below is an excerpt from the article, and click here to view the January 2014 feature
“Planes, trains, cars – that’s what little boys dream of. Or maybe its dinosaurs, spaceships, cowboys, or a favorite sports team. Whether creating the nursery where he will spend his first years, or redecorating to make a “big boy” bedroom, most parents want to create a haven for their son that he can truly call his own. Some would say decorating for their girl counterparts has always been easier. Products with pink, frills, and anything dazzling have flooded the marketplace for some time now. But juvenile-product manufacturers are waking up to the notion that there is a growing demand for all things boy, and they’re answering the call… Brewster Home Fashions, established in 1954, entered the wall decor arena with it’s WallPops line of wall art. The company’s peel & stick, repositionable, and completely removable products leave no sticky residue…”
