Hooked on Cool Wall Decals

Welcome to this week’s Hooked on Fridays blog carnival! Today I’m hooked on these Dali Wall Decals. I first discovered them over at Nonnie Bear and thought they were just so cool. What an easy and inexpensive way to change the look of a room! And when you get tired of them, you can peel them off and try something new. As I looked through their website, my mind started reeling with the possibilities.

Each decal comes in all sorts of colors to choose from. To see the options for this bird-on-a-branch, for example, click here.

I was watching Make Me a Supermodel (I’m such a sucker for reality TV) and noticed they had a chandelier decal like this in their house. Hmmm. I wonder if I would look taller and thinner, more “supermodel-like” if I used one of these in my house? Might be worth a shot.

My 6-year old loves animals and got excited when she saw this chimp. “I want this in my room!” she said. Um, I’ll have to think about that. Whether birds or chimps are more your style, I bet you’ll find something you’d like at the Dali Decal website. I’m excited to have them as one of my new sponsors. Check them out!

We don't have any tile backsplash in our kitchen, and that has always bothered me. One of these days we'll get around to adding some.…
I have a thing for stone fireplaces. I grew up in a charming old house that had one, which might explain why I always stop…

    Ohhh, I love the chandelier! I have seen others, but that is so striking! I was thinking about doing that for my little one’s “big girl room” once we ditch the crib. Thanks for sharing!

    So fun! I am actually on the hunt to purchase two wall decals for our home. I love the selection on ETSY.

  3. says

    This is a great idea for kids’ rooms, or rooms that you want to change every so often! A new blog I recently found, Little Green Notebook, had some other great wall decals.

    Sorry about the double link, you can delete the first one if you want – my computer populated the link with my post from last week.

    I love the decals and the decor ideas. No more stenciling or painting on words , and you hope they look straight. Thanks for Sharing….That new large Cricut machine does this on a smaller scale.

    I was all set to buy a vinyl monogram from another site but now I’ll have to check out your sponsor first! Definitely hooked on this idea right now. I’m going to have to see if that birdy on the limb can switch direction.
    But for my linky, I chose another topic. Happy Friday!

    I’m loving wall decals right now too. I read somewhere that you can make them from black contact paper? Not sure where to find that or if they will come off the wall easily? Has anyone tried that??

  10. says

    Wow! Thanks for all the great comments everyone! Excellent write-up Julia!

    Unfortunately, I’ve seen some kitschy wall decals that turned me off to the whole idea–but these designs are contemporary, chic, and tasteful. I adore the bird on the tree branch. I’m off to explore Dali’s site!

    I’m obsessed with these!

    I’m waiting on 2 of them to arrive in the mail right now. :)

    I always try to buy them on etsy to support artists and have been thrilled with every one I’ve purchased.

    This post really got me thinking! My husband doesn’t want me to put the big print I have waiting over our bed because we do not have a headboard yet. He’s afraid it will fall in the night and kill us…anyhoo, I think a decal would be the perfect substitute until we get a headboard!! Thanks!

    I am super excited, I saw that first picture of the monogram over a bed somewhere on the web (here?) and saved it as an inspiration picture. I was having trouble finding something similar and here it is!

  16. says

    I am SO loving all the wall decals too – we may do one of the chandelier ones in dd’s room this summer. and I want a monogram over our bed!!

    You read my mind, I love them. I posted a few months ago about the site “Elephannie” on Etsy. – http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5208238

    I would love to purchase two of the antique frames in black to attach on a wall of mirror above my daughter’s bathroom sinks. A frame above each sink. A way to take a blah mirror & transform it on under $100.

    Thanks for the great post today & for the blog party. Always fun!

  18. says

    Those wall decals are SOOOOOO fashionable… LOVE the chandelier the best!
    ENJOY your day!

    Mrs. “OrDie” uses decals on glass to good effect. Mostly to create negative effects with spray “frosting”. I’m not sure how we’d use it on our walls, but then again, it’s hard to think about the walls before trim is up.

    Thanks for the party, Julia!

    RehabOrDie’s last blog post..OK. Fine! Closet doors are finished!

  20. says

    This is fun. I appreciate seeing everyone else’s addictions. I wish I had the type of home for decals. But I don’t. In my apartment days, I would definitely have considered it.

    Angela, your husband is right. We’ve always had a rule about never putting anything over the bed that might kill us. I don’t know where you live, but in L.A. it’s a real issue.

  21. says

    Hey Julia. What a fun party. I have been search of the perfect chandelier wall decal but haven’t found it yet.

  22. says

    for some reason i think there might be a problem with my comments getting posted.:( just wanted to say thanks for hosting and glad i discovered your blog!

  23. says

    Aren’t they a dream come true?! I have to refrain myself from putting one in every room. Thanks for the shout out!!

    Sorry I am on here twice. I am new to Mr. Linky. I love the wall decals. I found some cool ones on Etsy. I am not sure where to add them to my walls yet. I was thinking about putting one in my master bedroom but I have not yet started with the decor for that room. Anywho, love you blog. I have been checking in on your blog for a while. I would love for you to come over and check out my blog. Blessings

    I’m loving wall decals too, Julia, and I need to find a room/wall for a lovely motif!!
    We’re about to renovate the basement… maybe there’s a room down there… hmmm… :-)

    OH! Thanks for posting about those wall decals. I’ve been looking for something like that for my upstairs game room. I’m going to add my link for what I’m hooked on. 😀

  28. says

    Ooooo…I would like the chandelier for my office…As in my day-job office. I would love to see the look on my boss’ face!! :-) Plus it would put a little glamour in a space that otherwise sucks the life out of me.

    Speaking of work…right now I’m hooked on business plans. But that’s not very fun so I didn’t link up, lol. 😉

    I love your site!! I’m definitely hooked on houses. I love decorating, but mostly painting. Check out my blog to see my portfolio. My expertise is in paint, but I’m going back to school in August to get a degree in Interior Design and Space Planning. Yippee!!
