Hooked on Cool Wall Decals

by hookedonhouses on March 12, 2009

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!

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re hooked on today! If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below. Just please be sure to:

  1. Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
  2. Link back to the party from your post so that your readers can come and see what everyone else is talking about today!
  3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and leave comments! That’s what a blog party is all about!
  4. Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted! If you come back and see your link is gone, re-read these rules and try again next week.

I’m having a moment where I think wall decals will be the new millenium equivalent of the 1990s feature wall … not convinced about them.

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!

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 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??

Jane @ Beach House March 13, 2009 at 6:38 am

I’m hooked on chandeliers at the moment so I love the black chandelier decal. I’d hang it in my powder room, just for fun.

Amy @ Living Locurto March 13, 2009 at 8:12 am

Those are great. I would much rather use a decal than paint the design…. which I usually do. The chandelier one would be perfect for a girl’s room.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
