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.

Our Bargello Waves is a designer wall art kit by Jonathan Adler for WallPops! This mod geometric print is like a granny gone wild needlepoint design for your walls. The Bargello waves motif was inspired by a set of embroidered chairs found in the Bargello palace of Florence, Italy. It is also sometimes called Florentine Flame Stitch, and Hungarian Point. The kit comes with 18 separate decals on two large sheets and no two are exactly alike! You can arrange these groovy pieces to make your own statement piece, and to fit your space perfectly. You might even end up with extra pieces left over to add an unexpected pop of mod style to a table or shelf.

The beginning of the school year is upon us and while some of us are still enjoying the last hurrahs of summer, many teachers are already hard at work decorating their classrooms! We salute the teachers for the amazing work that they do. We also love to see how creative they can be when bringing personality to a classroom space and adding engaging and educational decor to the room. We have so many awesome wall decals that are perfect for adding a little oomph and a lot of fun to the classroom setting! From functional dry-erase decals and maps, to alphabet sets and cute wall art kits that wont damage classroom walls, we have dynamite designs to kick the school year off in style.
A map is a timeless decor accent, especially well suited to a classroom wall. Our peel & stick map decals range from classy National Geographic designs to engaging kids maps with extra facts like state capitals and symbolic images from around the world. All of our map decals are dry-erase and come with a handy marker.
Dry-Erase decals are perfect for classroom decor! While kids practice letters, chart science experiment results, create schedules, and learn about keeping track of dates, it is helpful to have a reusable space to write on, erase and write again. Writing on the wall with a dry-erase decal also saves lots of paper and puts information in a central location. WallPops dry-erase decal collection includes chalk decals, message boards, and calendars.
Alphabet wall decals are a grand idea for an educational wall decor in a classroom, and can also be used to organize the room. Many of our ABC wall decal kits come with multiples of each letter so you can spell out things like “recycle” and “wash your hands”. For younger children, having the alphabet on the wall in plain view is a great learning tool as well as a decorative accent perfectly tailored to an elementary school room.
In addition to educational wall art, WallPops can provide a decorative and cheerful look for a classroom. Adding a tree decal to the wall, a colorful splash of butterfly wall stickers or a school of tropical fish can reinvent the look and feel of the room. Engaging kids imaginations with an artistic classroom is a great way to make learning fun!
Can you believe it’s almost time for back to school?! We are always sad to see Summer fade away, but we have to admit that we get pretty ramped up for Fall fashion! Of course we have checked out the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Fall color trends and we are already dreaming about who will have the coolest dorm on campus. This collection of ideas for back to school includes brilliant dorm room decor and phenomenal organization tools!
1. Dry-Erase Decals, where fabulous meets functional! Our peel and stick dry-erase message boards, calendars, maps and planners look lovely while providing a space to stay up to date! Chart your adventures and brush up on geography on a dry-erase map. Maps are classic, they never really go out of style but they have been popping up as a trend in decor and fashion prints recently. A dry-erase message board is a super chic way to decorate your dorm walls, and also works well in a kitchen as a central space to communicate and coordinate busy schedules. A dry-erase calendar keeps your whole month in perspective, and is totally reusable, so technically you will never need to buy a new one! We love decorating with dry-erase because it is interactive wall art.
2. Wall Art Kits! WallPops wall art kits bring the hottest décor themes to your walls, with the brilliant innovation of peel and stick! We know you can’t paint your dorm room. And we know you aren’t even suppsed to use nails, screws or tacks. But that simply does not mean you can’t decorate your walls! Our wall decals are totally removable and repositionable so you can even take them home with you when you move out of your dorm. All of your friends and even your RA will be in awe of your gorgeous dorm room decor. Our wall art decal kits include hipster-chic trendy mustache decals, globe trotting city skylines, pretty flowers and butterflies, vintage-mod bird cage wall decals and much more so you can truly personalize your dorm.
3. Wall Art Quotes! Express yourself and inspire your décor with a beautiful quote on the wall. WallPops wall quotes include heartfelt sayings like “All You need is Love” and great mottos like “You Only Live Once”. Designed with fine graphics and attractive fonts, these words for your wall bring a great message to any room, especially a dorm room. Keep it positive with an upbeat mantra like “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” or “Never Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle”.
