Wall Decals – what do you think?  Tacky, or Not Tacky?
I think they can look nice if they are in the right type of room.
Example 1: Minimalist rooms
(I also think this was in CB2)
This is where color would come in well too, though.

Example 2: Kids’ rooms

I like the idea of having decals behind a crib or child’s bed instead of hanging something on the wall that could come down and hit them on the head.

Example 3: To compliment wall art

My friend Tanjia had a great example similar to this one over her family photos.  A good idea is to match the lettering to the frames so they act almost as a second frame and don’t overpower the photos themselves.

And there are MANY examples of Tacky wall decals.


I also think that wall decals are going to look dated in a few years, like stencils of geese and ivy 🙂

So what do you think? Tacky, or not Tacky?
