The upcycling movement is all the rage in the arts, crafts and building world. It has taken the DIY movement to a new height of eco-chic accomplishment, repurposing items to brand new functions and forms, with eclectic and remarkable results. Before you buy new pieces, we recommend “shopping” your own home to see if you have anything that could be reinvented with a chic new identity. You can also save money and achieve a fulfilling sense of accomplishment by purchasing a used piece and making it your own with personalized upgrades. Painted furniture, for example, has been trending in home decor. Outdated wood pieces, especially, have enjoyed a renaissance of style after receiving a fresh coat of paint in an a la mode hue.

This Season, pastels are bathing everything in delicate hues of pink, pistachio, baby blue and lavender. These midtone versions of Easter candy hues are delightful and chic, adding a creamy dream soft beauty to everything from swimsuits to kitchen appliances. Somewhat reminiscent of the 1950s, these tender hues have an inviting and fresh feel. Try painting a wooden chair, making a feature wall, or introducing a new accessory into your home this season in a pretty pastel tint.
Blossoming Branches Or Potted Bulbs

It is widely known that a vase of fresh flowers brings a room to life. This year, think outside the bouquet and try decorating with branches or potted bulbs instead. Not only do these options last longer than cut flowers, they also have a sophisticated whimsy. Spring sprigs, like pussy willows, almond tree boughs and flowering cherry tree branches add height and enchantment to decor. Buy cut branches or snip your own to enjoy the gradual blossom of nature unfolding indoors. Potted bulbs provide a similar sense of charm, building anticipation as a spike of fresh green leaves slowly buds into a colorful posy of flowers.

Florals never really go out of style, they just take on new tendencies each season. This year it seems watercolor florals, pixelated graphic florals and vintage chic retro florals are all the rage. Pick your passion or fee free to mix and match, because you simply cannot go wrong with flowers in the Springtime. Try mixing floral prints into the room with a tablecloth, a framed piece of art or wall decal kit, a garland of blossoms strung across a window, or in accent pieces like plates, vases or even napkins.
We recommend swapping out pillows often! It is one of the quickest and most effective ways to renew a space. In the Winter we like to cuddle up on the couch, surrounded by fabrics like fur, velvet, and warm knits. April is the perfect time to trade these pillows for bright and cool new looks, with seasonally appropriate fabrics like linen, cotton and lace. Experiment with the seasons fascination with metallics, mixing pastels with gold accents and fun florals with shimmery sequins.

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.
Lots 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.
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
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.
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

Or, for a year round radiant orchid inspiration, decorate with floral wall decals!
