Making an Organization Hub

WP96897

Bright and friendly, this colorful organization hub turns this high traffic area into a stylish place to dine, while allowing you to stay up to speed with the day’s activities.

When all the beach chairs have been stored away and the back to school rush initiates once again, the importance of staying both organized and on top of day to day activities becomes not only a huge priority but a daily challenge we can’t escape. Whether it’s remembering a doctor’s appointment or Spanish test or having to grocery shop for that huge dinner you’re hosting on Saturday night, between work and soccer games, appointments and last minute plans, staying coordinated and on time becomes a game of cat and mouse. The solution? Create a place in your home where organization reigns, a place where you can go that has all the answers!

You don’t need a lot of space to stay organized! This cute (and compact) area serves as a perfect central spot for lists, notes, important dates and more!

Whether it is in your kitchen or out, your office, bedroom or hallway, the beauty of an organization hub is that there is one place that you and your family can go to keep track of plans, goals, lists, upcoming deadlines and more. Be creative! Add pops of color or pretty accents, calendars, message boards and fun details.

Tie your whole look together with a fresh wall decal or piece of decorative art.

Make this space fit into your home but stand out just enough that you are always checking in! Make room for both the big stuff as well as the little stuff. And if you need a change of scenery, mix it up with a fresh design or have fun rearranging what’s already there.

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.

WallPops in a Classroom

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.

National Geographic Map of the World for a ClassroomDry-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!
