If you would have told me a few years ago that hanging a wall decal in your living room was a good idea, I probably would have said “SURE BUDDY, YOU DO THAT!” In my defense, the only wall decals I had seen up to that point were those FAT HEAD sports decals for kids rooms and man caves. Not exactly high style.
But recently I have seen more and more designer wall decals. They come in many sizes and a wide range of prices. This is the perfect solution for those of us who have a large empty wall and lack the coordination and skills it takes to cover it with photos and paintings that are all perfectly level. How many times have I tried to align a group of photos only to get to the last one and realize they’re are all misaligned? Or on the flip side, how many times have I tried to make photo frames look scattered and random on a wall only to discover that it just looks messy and all together wrong?
Here are a few ideas that can work for larger walls.
CHERRY BLOSSOM from trendywalldesigns.com. You can customize the color of the blossoms and the branches as well as choose which size you want (starting at $35).
BIRDS ON A WIRE also from trendywalldesigns.com ($25-$75).
Keeping with the birds, TARGET offers this affordable option for about $15.
DANDELION BLOWING IN THE WIND is a very cool option from dalidecals, especially on a dark wall. And like many of the other sites you can customize the decal for your color scheme.
The extra large size of this is only about $65.
The good thing about all these decals is that they are affordable. If you hang one up and decide you don’t like it anymore, you can just peel it off and replace it with another!
Note: I would probably not suggest these decals, or any decal really, for smaller walls less than 8 feet or so in width. It may end up looking like you forced something into that space that wasn’t needed. For smaller walls stick to paintings, prints, and photographs that are appropriately sized.
