Decorating with wall stickers
Tips for using wall stickers
Be careful to smooth out any bumps. With larger adhesive murals, it may be better to have them put up by a professional.
- Try using smaller stickers to create a border around a room.
- Get yourself a low-maintenance pet with one of the many animal sticker designs available.
- Blackboard stickers come in many shapes and sizes, giving you a handy place to scrawl memos and for kids to draw on!
Create a graphic feature wall
Be an individual and dress up your walls with stickers ranging from delicate foliage to urban telegraph poles, fingerprints and barcodes. You can even get a silhouette of a coat stand and attach a hook to the wall to make it useable.
Use a giant wall sticker to make a feature wall. Black stickers create a sharp graphic look against a white wall, but lots of fun colourful options are available too, and they're particularly good for kids bedrooms. See Rockett St George's collection or visit 95% Danish.
Choose murals for exotic scenes
Invest in an adhesive mural and create a magical, imaginary scene – from windswept sand dunes to dreamy blue skies. Surfaceview has plenty of options to help you create the right atmosphere. You could even adorn your walls with a priceless masterpiece from the National Gallery collection at a fraction of the price - the store has a range of arty murals to suit all tastes.
Decorate with smaller stickers
You can use multiple stickers to create something out of the ordinary, like a swarm of butterflies. Other motifs which work well when used collectively include leaves, flowers and birds. Don't leave them just on the walls - a medium-sized sticker such as a flower looks great as a decoration on a bedside or dressing table. Stickers can also transform a boring headboard. You can use letter stickers to make a statement, reproduce a line of poetry or spell out your name. Mix up fonts for a less formal look, or go for metallic stickers in silver or gold for a more glamorous style.
Using window film
You don't have to stop at the walls - windows can look fantastic decorated with stickers too. Brume has a large selection of window film, coloured and plain, to create a frosted glass look. Window film has the added advantage of giving you greater privacy from nosy neighbours. You could even use coloured film to complement your scheme and create a stained-glass effect for a mood-altering glow. Choose yellow film for a sunny boost, or purple for a relaxing atmosphere.
