Instant Drama

I was finally able to put up my vinyl wall decals this evening. I really like how the yellow and white pops on the purple walls. These pictures do not do the decals justice. When you are actually standing in the room, there is more of a bohemian/wilderness/fantasy effect.

As you can see below, I extended the decals down the right wall to appear like falling leaves. There is one single tiny dragonfly hovering just above where the mother can keep watch...or at least that is what I was thinking about when I placed them there.

The decals are super easy to apply. I received two separate instructions, from two separate sellers. The first mentioned using Fantastic on the walls and then applying the decals. I do not think so! That is a very powerful chemical that could damage the paint, so I did not even try. The second seller simply said to wipe down with a dry cloth. I did neither and obtained perfection.

The photo below appears more brown than violet. And the glare from the fan is awful. My next project to improve my sewing room is going to be the lighting issues. Ott-lites at that! One central glaring light is an awful choice for a room for hobbies. Well, it is actually bad in every room since the glare is on the tv and wall hangings.

Here is the overall effect of the new decals. Sure click the picture and view the details of the dragonflies and leaves! Also, just put up some new inspo. I'm digging the bright colors with animal prints and white dresses.

I LOVE the decals. The white tree branch is my absolute favorite of all you show... I love it so much! I must know where you ordered these from? Paris' room is currently done in sweet little birds.. how fitting would a tree branch be? I have seen the trees painted but haven't been brave enough to try it out.. I love this idea.. LOVE the tree branch :)
