wall art : decal


I am so excited to finally reveal this huge decal I added to a wall in my office! I considered hanging it above my desk, but I was worried it would be too busy. So, I placed it behind the desk where I make jewelry. 

I'm absolutely thrilled with it. It's on the wall directly across from the door, so you can see the decal when you are walking in the hallway, and I love that.



Michele, who is also the mastermind behind Diesel + Juice, runs Wallums, an online decal store with her boyfriend Steve. I've used four Wallums decals (this one, this one, this one and this one) and they are very easy to apply. My mom helped my hang this one, and she told me she's had trouble in the past with decals from other stores not sticking as well, OR sticking too well to the backing. She was impressed with the quality of this decal as much as I was.

Each decal comes with application instructions as well as a tool to rub it onto the wall. It's my favorite way to change up a room, especially since we are renters.

Some of my other favorites are. . .

Have a great weekend!  

*I recieved the decal as a gift, all opinions are mine.

  7. This is so great! I've always been hesitant to try wall decals since our whole house has textured plaster walls and I wasn't sure how well that would go, but if I ever move or decide to try them anyway, I'll totally be checking out Wallums! That coffee one is adorable too.

  16. So do you have to put each letter or word on individually or is it truly one big piece? I have had one before that we had to do invidually and it was hard to keep it straight.

    1. It came in 3 sheets, and each sheet had diamond shapes (about 1x1 inches) to line up to make sure everything was straight.

  19. Oh that looks fabulous! I love the neutral/white theme and the print itself doesn't need extra colour.

  20. OMG I LOVE THIS DECAL! I think reminders like this are wonderful. And it sounds perfect that you can see from the hallway b/c that also means every time you walk into your office, your focus goes to the inspirational words on your wall.

  29. Hello! Kate you have inspired me to give it a go doing my own blog! I have a question that may be really silly but as I said I'm new to the blogging world! What are the links at the top of your page ( about, beauty, hair, etc) called? I'm trying to add them to mine but can't figure out what to call them to look up the right code! I know this isn't related to your post but I'd appreciate your time-or anyone who sees this and knows!
