Color is one of the easiest and most noticeable ways you can change the look of your home. Paint just one wall in your formerly all-cream bedroom a deep sea blue or the bottom half of your soothing sage green dining room a rich chocolate brown and all of a sudden it feels like you have a brand new room.

But sometimes painting is both not enough — just one color? no pattern? — and too much — the tools, the prep, the mess! Enter wall decals.

When wall decals first came out, it seems everyone was quoting, inspiring or pointing out the obvious in stylish ways on their walls — a bold “bath time” over the tub, a curvy “life takes you unexpected places/love brings you home” in the family room, or a pithy reminder from Dr. Seuss, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You,” in the kids’ room.

Wall decals have branched out since then — in addition to words and quotes, there is an endless variety of patterns, designs, and images available for you to affix to your wall. The best thing of all? When you’re tired of the look, all you have to do is peel it off and it’s gone. No fuss, no mess.
