Room with wall decal
Decals Done Right
Wednesday, October 7, 2009

A wall decal can brighten a room. If done properly, and sparingly, they are a whimsical delight for a living area, a bedroom, and especially a kids room. If you’re tempted to try this in your own home, however, beware the urge to start putting them on everything. It happens to the best of us. Remember: Excess stickering is for a notebooks and reward charts – not your every square inch of your dining room walls.

Here are some examples of decals done right:
