Redesigning a bathroom can seem like a challenging project. From the small space to the cluttered appliances, creating a look that is both balanced as well as refreshing requires both some thought and dedication. Making sure to not go overboard with your design is also essential in creating a clean space that is free from claustrophobia!

Today, we show you that updating your bathroom doesn’t have to include all those unsightly renovations or a long day of painting, instead choose a couple of your favorite WallPops designs, outline a rough sketch of your desired “look” and then simply get to work!

For added dimension, we framed the Bamboo Wall Decals in black frames to tie all the colors in the bathroom together!

Our advice, pick one primary area in your bathroom that will carry the design and then build out from there. In the video below, we chose to focus on the ceiling and then accent on the walls and other areas of the powder room. However, the most important advice is to pick a design that you LOVE. Although you don’t spend all your time in the bathroom, it is a place that encompasses beauty, cleanliness and hopefully relaxation, so you want a look that reflects that whether you choose to go simple or bold with the design!

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

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.

Two Classy Chics: Back to School with Wallpops Organizational Kits

Capture2classy
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.
