Hayneedle’s Top 5 WallPops Decals

A Special Guest Post By John Rost for hayneedle.com

Hayneedle_LogoA quick spin around Pinterest reveals large-print wallpapers, bold painted stencils, and other eye-popping designs are adding serious visual interest to the walls around us. If you don’t want to go with full-on wallpaper — maybe you like to change your visuals often, or maybe you’re decorating a space that grows with you — wall decals are an ideal option. They’re easy to apply, easy to remove, and beautifully designed in an incredible array of designs, colors, and shapes. We’re particularly excited about the well curated collection of WallPops on hayneedle.com, which are also handily affordable. Here are a few of our favorites from the collection:

 1. WallPops El Paradiso Wall Mural

WHOOSH! That’s the sound of you being whisked away on an island vacation the minute you walk into a room. This stunning, giant wall decal takes over an entire wall with a bright, high-definition photographic beach scene. This daily vacation comes as eight easy paste-on panels — no tickets or bag check required.

 

2. WallPops Red Branch Wall Decals

Need a pop of color? Cherry blossoms are beautiful, wistful, and bright. This eye-catching vinyl wall decal is peel-and-stick, so you can place it on any painted wall as many times as you like.

 

3. WallPops Owl Tree Wall Decal Kit

Decals are great for kids rooms, too. Colorful and fun, they provide the visuals that little ones love without the permanence of wallpaper. This cute tree decal is a hoot, and, at over 4 feet tall, it makes a fun project to put up (or take down) together.

 

4. WallPops Floral Medley Organization Kit Wall Decals

The set is perfect for a home office or dorm room. It’s all peel-and-stick, so you can rearrange it however you want, using all or a few of the pieces. There’s a weekly calendar, a monthly calendar, a big floral message board, and a cork board for reminders.

 

5. WallPops White Orchid Wall Decal

This orchid wall decal is truly photorealistic, printed in oversized super-high definition for a beauty that’s beyond anything you could paint or paste. It comes as a single-piece stick-on, so the possibilities for where it can bloom are nearly endless.

Trending: Parisian Décor

Parisian décor inspiration

Paris, the city of love, where vintage and modern coexist and “organized clutter” is seen as stylish and chic. Old clocks to beautiful fabrics to gilt picture frames, chandeliers, black, white, gold and purple, all mix beautifully together to inspire a perfect Parisian look. Although the Eiffel Tower may not lay outside your doorstep, achieving a look that’s both old and new, eclectic yet romantic can be done with just a few simple touches using some of our peel and stick decals!

Sketch of a Parisian inspired room

The easiest way to bring Parisian style home, is to bring to your room pictures of French landmarks including Paris and the Eiffel Tower, black and white vintage photographs or paintings of the French countryside. Nothing speaks more to Parisian culture than the beautiful sites and scenery of the city itself!

Offsetting a modern room with vintage details and accessories is another common theme that can be found throughout Parisian homes. By bringing in items and furniture that have a time-worn elegance, you can layer in the old with the new and start to create a mixed look that’s both unique and stylish.

Last but not least, incorporating raven colored accents throughout your room work to tie the whole Parisian look together. With a chic touch of black on picture frames, lamp shades or even pillows, the plain becomes glamorous and the old becomes new.

Parents With Princess Fatigue Say ‘Behold the Owl’

Paula Berberian, Creative Director for WallPops was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal Home & Digital article about the growing popularity of owls in kids decor. Read an excerpt from the article below, and click here to see the whole feature!

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.

Sarah Froman played with her son, Isaac. Melissa Golden for The Wall Street Journal

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.

What to do on Holiday Break

Next week is Christmas! This means no school for the kids, winter vacation for college students, and many of us grown ups have at least part if not the whole week off from work. What are your favorite things to do on holiday break? In no particular order here are our favorite 5 things to do this winter break!

5 things to do this winter break decorate1. Decorate! There are so many reasons why this week is one of the best times to roll up your sleeves and tackle a DIY home decor project! If you are anything like us, you have spent the whole year ogling Pinterest and dreaming over HGTV. Well the year is almost over and it’s time to bring some of that inspiration to life! Use this time, the last week of the year, to give your own home a stylish update. Using your time for a creative project launches you into the New year with a sense of rejuvenation and pride about your surroundings! This doesn’t mean you have to tear out the kitchen cabinets or build a roof deck! Set a reasonable goal, like revamping your work space or turning a blank wall into a beautiful focal point and work from there.

5 things to do this winter break organize your photos with frames decals2.  Organize Photos. In the digital age it seems like we take more photos than ever, yet we have less and less time to do anything with them all. Take stock of your year’s images and make sure that you will be able to enjoy all of these beautiful memories forever. Upload all of the images from your phone, back up photos on memory sticks or discs, and categorize your folders of pictures into a system that will make it easier for you to find them later. This is also a brilliant time to print out some of your favorites from the year and make an album, frame some for the wall, and gift them to our friends and loved ones.

3. Cook. The holiday season, and the whole year, really, can seem like a whirlwind of non-stop activities, appointments, gatherings, shopping, errands, commuting and so much more. While we have to eat every day, we do not always get the time to linger over a recipe, or bake something from scratch. Try out a new recipe, or spend an afternoon whipping up something spectacular, just because you can! Then enjoy your delicious concoction with some of your favorite people. This is also a great project to do at home with kids, or as a couple.

We find out about everything from a friends broken leg to whether your cousin is having a girl or a boy baby from Facebook. An actual phone call can be rare, especially one that lasts more than 5 minutes! Use this time around the holidays to reach out and catch up with family and friends. They will be delighted to hear from you!

5. Get out & enjoy your community! No matter where you live, chances are there are fun things going on this week! Find out about yoga classes at nearby studios, explore your closest library, spend the afternoon looking in local shops and art galleries, or go ice skating at a neighborhood rink or pond. You don’t have to plan a 3 ring circus or book an extravagant getaway! Explore your own city or town and finally take the time to get to some of those places you have been noticing throughout the year.
