We absolutely adore this DIY Decor Idea from the Coupon WAHM Website! They were kind enough to review our Spot the Owl Tree Decal kit from the new WallPops for Kids line.

This created a unique place to hang sweaters and coats as well as a beautiful look in the room! Read the whole review here and see pictures of their project.
If you love it, label it! With the popularity of wall quotes, wall poetry and inspirational words for the wall, WallPops has lots of fun ways to make a statement in a room… pun intended!

“I never knew the charm of spring… I never knew my heart could sing, I never missed a warm embrace ‘Til April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom, Holiday tables under the trees…” *Le Sigh* The notion of April in Paris is a romantic one indeed. This dreamy city has set the stage for many a love story with its beautiful fusion of historical splendor and contemporary trendsetting. Each year, this fashion capital hosts Maison & Objet, Europe’s largest home design exhibition. Paula Berberian, WallPops Creative Director, scoured the enormous show searching for the latest trends and reports back here with four that can easily be incorporated into your décor.
“While Pantone named Emerald Green the color of the year, it appeared that 1950’s sugary pastels were evident and making headway,” says Berberian. “A hue I especially saw around the halls was a very soft pink that was commonly paired with taupes and black and white, along with a soft yellow, seen most often with grey.”
Whether in the popular pink, the new hot pistachio pastel, subtle watery blues, or in other soft marshmallow hues, the trend is certainly on time for spring. Oh Pear dots, blox and stripes add a refreshing sweetness to walls, and coordinate beautifully with other pretty pastels like light pink, buttercream yellow and baby blue. The design’s pastel pairing produces a look that’s both soft and sophisticated.
There is a lot of financial uncertainty in the world right now” says Berberian. “Many companies are taking a conservative approach with regards to product introductions taking a deep breath and not wanting to take risks.” Berberian thinks this may be the reason why there are a lot of subdued modern interpretations of classic prints, such as a refreshed floral or damask.
Geometric and modern designs were still a favorite but I, along with my colleagues, concluded that there weren’t any drastically new designs. Overall designers and manufacturers are playing it safe,” concludes Berberian. For a colorful improved classic, the Hollywood design by Jonathan Adler for WallPops incorporates mod colors with a geometric floral pattern. Wow guests upon arrival by adding these WallPops in a foyer. Its large-scale bright print is as cheerful as it is inviting, and by adding the design to an entryway, it also helps to set the overall decorating style and mood of a home.
“This year’s show confirmed that the natural and artisanal is a trend with staying power,” says Berberian. “With a universal shift to more eco-friendly home décor, hand-crafted wooden pieces, even furnishings dyed with vegetable color, such as in a popular citrusy lime green, were prevalent.”
While the organic look was captured in wooden furniture from Scandinavian, Dutch and German to Italian designers, this theme can easily be captured in wall décor as well. For an eco-friendly statement and one that instantly adds an organic feel to a space, the Habitat kit is an ideal addition. Lush forest silhouettes of ferns, leaves, branches and butterflies pay homage to the beauty of nature.
4. Warm Metals
Just as colors were softened at the exhibition, so were the metallic accents. Rose gold, pink copper and yellowy brass finishes, both matte and highly-polished, were on-hand. In furnishings, the metals were often paired with dark woods like walnut, ceramics and marble and, as Berberian attests, were also seen on walls.
“Metallic-accented wallpaper was a constant at Maison, which serves as an affirmation that we’re on-trend,” says Berberian. For some bling on your walls, the Santorini comes cast in silver and gold mylar metallics. These delightful wall accents can transform any space into a sparkling jewel box while still maintaining a sophisticated allure.

As Weather Becomes Dreary, Easily Add Cheerful Colors at Home
Summer’s green grass, colorful flowers and bright fashions are going out with the seasons ahead but that doesn’t mean you have to forfeit such vibrant color just because nature does. Awaken to color in cold months by adding these cheerful additions and enjoy a lively landscape anytime of the year.
- Swap in Happy Rugs: For an effective overall update, swap out neutral and lackluster-looking rugs for something that energizes the space. If you have hardwood or carpet, you can still add a variety of colorful carpets to transform a room without a major remodel. Try invigorating orange, cheerful yellow or even grassy green and add a few accent pieces of the same color around the room for balance. The area doesn’t have to be a circus of colors but these easy additions can add a whole lot of happy in humdrum colder months.
- Bring Nature In: While you may not be able to pick flowers fresh from the garden or even from the store, why not integrate these uplifting beauties more firmly into the décor? Try placing high-quality artificial floral arrangements around the home such as in the foyer, kitchen and living room or making a bigger impression by adding floral wall art. For an easy update, try WallPops, the premier line of peel-and-stick wall art from Brewster Home Fashions, that offers the Des Fleurs Wall Art Kit. It features four large pink-and-white flowers on a lime-green stem with gem embellishments. Other choices, the Sitting In a Tree Wall Art Kit with a whimsical green-leaf tree limb with blue birds perched on them and the Love Birds Wall Art Kit featuring a tan-and-cream tree with flowers, birds and heart-shaped limbs that comes in four square sheets. All approximately $29.99 each. To add a row of flowers, floral dots or a checkered pattern, also try WallPops Petals Dots, Blox and Stripes in a sixties-inspired floral design in pop colors. To accent, WallPops also offers peel-and-stick wall art in colorful solids including Flirt Pink and Stylin’ Green. All approximately $15.99 each pack.
- Colorful Kitchen and Tabletop: Go bright and notice the beauty it brings to the home. One simple way to add color is with dazzling dishes, kitchen accessories and other tabletop items that are used every day. Try throwing a bold red or blue tablecloth over dining tables in time for the holidays or add a splash of color and nature by using dinnerware patterned in lively butterflies, stripes or damask. Also, retire old toasters, coffee makers and blenders and upgrade to colorful options such as those offered by Sunbeam, which currently has small home appliances in cheerful pink and teal. Approximately $19.99 each and available on Target.com. Another great way to add color and pattern to a part of the kitchen is with WallPops Anya Stripes in an intriguing floral motif dominated by a deep teal, or with the Habitat wall art, a modern spin on a classic nature inspiration.
- Pillows that Pop: Perhaps the easiest way to bring color into a space is by placing bright pillows around the room. Rather than purchasing, to simply get tired of the design or color later, buy several standard square 20” x 20” pillows and use stylish covers to rotate these accent pieces to fit with the seasons or your latest favorite color. Try various online retailers such as Pronto Home that offers a wide supply of pillow covers from popular manufacturers that include everything from solids, watercolor patterns to bright bull’s eye prints.
Create a colorful home in cooler months with these easy additions and feel energized all year long.
