What do you think?
I happen to have strong feelings about this particular discussion because I have lots and lots of decals in our very small apartment. I'm sure that I went a bit over-the-top (it is my first apartment after all, so I'm allowed to go a little wild, right?) but I have to say that the quality and creativity in the decal world is really impressive! And they just keep getting better. For example, take a look at the Rex Ray decals that Jillian just posted about. That is beautiful artwork!
For me, my love of decals started with these beauties:
Aren't they lovely? I'm very happy to have the black silhouette hanging in our apartment. It makes such a statement.
And a friend recently sent me these:
I love this series of decals because I adore Jillian's picture frame-inspired wallpaper but didn't want to wallpaper my apartment walls. This decal provides a similar look without the commitment.
So...are wall decals a really sophisticated design element? Maybe not.
But do they make me happy? Absolutely.
The fact that wall stickers are temporary means that I can switch up my decor anytime I want. That's a huge bonus! And in my opinion, that's why they'll be "in" for quite awhile.
