Wall Decal - Yay or Nay?


image from:apartment therapy

I have a love hate relationship with wall decals. Some of them like the image above are a really smart and fun alternative to traditional spaces. It creates conversational pieces and gives flat 1 dimentional art a three-dimensional quality. However, there are some that can come off very childish.

Here are some really clever ones that I think are particularly interesting...

putting vinyl on furniture gives new meaning to plain boring pieces. more than any other place, i think wall decal works wonders in nurseries or in childrens rooms. it gives the space some character and adds fun elements that is easily interchangeable.



Ultimately, I think the real answer to wall decals are how they're used and where you decide to use them.

what do you think? what are your views on wall decal??? yay or nay?

Wall decals are a great way to change a room without having to do everything from the paint to the upholstery. We think they're great fun!
