18th Century Chic, in your home

Decor Decals, wonderful because they can make a boring white wall an interesting centerpiece, bring dimension to a bare room, promote that feeling of being somewhere extra fabulous, they can be peeled off if you tire of them and are rather affordable solutions to a fabulous room makeover!

Pick a room to dress up - bedroom, bathroom, living room, den. Any color paint will do and you can choose your decal colors. Soft pink walls? Go with a light gray appliqué. White walls remain classy with black. Some of my favorites are:

Baroque (baroque?)

Ta-Da! My favorite, Amsterdam. Perfect for a hallway lit by candlelight!

For a full room make over check out the great *18th century inspired* hand made wall paper designs at Nama Rococo!


  1. And to think how many naked walls we saw in England. So much space put to waste!

  2. I love the naked vines and the Baroque. I have a 'petit salon' that woulod look wonderful with either one of these:)

  3. Those are nice! Have you used them before? I'm worried about whether they would take off the paint when removed. Amsterdam is really neat! I think it would look good in an entrance, or beside/below a window, or as you suggested, in a hallway.

  4. The chandeliers are wonderful. Too bad I already have pictures/prints not hanging due to my lack of self control. Or my lack of wall space, depending on how you look at it :)

  5. My cousin had polka dot ones on her walls and they came off easily. I think you need to make sure that the wall is squeaky clean where you put them!

    I would really consider the Amsterdam one because it is so unique (and I love the place.) You can all come over to see my opulent bathroom complete with vinyl decals inspired by shell encrusted things...

  6. Amazing. I just saw some walls with Marie Antoinette images on them on the Paris Apartment blog. I must have those, only where do I find them :)

  7. These are adorable! I especially love the one of the rooftops by the crib.
    Nama's website is amazing too!
