decals?

with 2 comments

Sometimes I just can’t decide whether or not I like something…

I always preferred mounted wall art or prints over decals. But I’m starting to think that when they are used well, decals can bring intrigue, conversation and life to a room that are lacking in other wall features.

  1. I used to be on the fence too… I’ve since decided that I don’t love them because they’ve been too over done, but there are still some unexpected ones that are cool in the right room… Like the ones you show in the last photo and these from Blik: http://www.whatisblik.com/shop/wrought-iron

    • Thank you so much for reading and commenting, I’m so touched! And that is cool. I think decals are a bit of fun and are strongly suited to a commercial setting. Another blogger referred me to a project where he used decals in this manner: http://designalexable.blogspot.com/2011/07/bar-bar-brighton.html

      So that’s one vote yes and one vote no… I think I’m still on the fence! But you have swayed me a bit. I don’t think decals will ever make an appearance in my home. I’d always enjoy seeing clever and quirky ones in someone else’s though…
