I love gallery walls. I've had them in all of the homes I've lived in as an adult starting with my "Duluth wall" that I had when I lived in Duluth (yes, I had a wall dedicated to the city I lived in...I was obsessed).
The gallery wall in my office has been one of my favorites since it is a mix of old, new, and handmade. We've collected vintage pieces from our neighborhood antique shops, spray painted old frames and even have one of my grandma's watercolors on the wall!
I discovered wall decals when we decorated our nursery and decided we didn't want to wallpaper in there like we originally planned. The triangle decals were the perfect way to decorate without having to commit to one wallpaper that would be in the nursery for years! (Check out my nursery here.) After doing my nursery, I fell in love with wall decals and how the can easily (and inexpensively) transform a room!
I was recently introduced to Paper Riot, a brand new company that is coming out with an entire line of really fun and unique wall decals, who asked if I wanted to use their decals in my home.
Ummm duh. ;)
The first spot I wanted to incorporate them was my gallery wall in my office. I'm in my office a lot and frequently get bored with the decor so adding in removable wall decals is the perfect way to switch things up a bit without filling my wall with holes.
Since I could always use a bit of inspiration and encouragement, I chose to put "be you" and "shine" words on the wall and added in some colored dots for a splash of fun. (Both of these can be found at your local Kohl's.)
They were so simple to use! I simply cut out the decals I wanted to use and taped them to the wall until they were in a spot I liked (as you can see below).
I highly suggest doing this because as you can tell, the first spot I placed decals isn't where the ended up. It took a while but I kept rearranging until I loved it. For me it helped to come back to it after a day with fresh eyes before actually sticking them to the wall!
Even though I taped up all of my pieces, I still decided I wanted to move a couple of the decals after sticking them to the wall. I was a little nervous they would lose their stickiness or look bad after replacing them but I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! They came off the wall with very little effort and stuck on the wall again with no problem.
One tip - don't press them against the wall until you step back and review it. They come up super easy if you don't press them and make moving them a breeze.
I highly suggest trying out wall decals if you want to switch up a room! They're so simple to add to a gallery wall like I did, use on a dresser instead of painting it, add some funk to your front door or even dress up your kitchen cabinets!
I have a few more projects in the works with Paper Riot (including showing you Roy's amazingly organized closet woohoo!) so be on the look out for those!
And as always, be sure to follow along on Instagram for more peeks into my home, style tips and of course, shop updates!
