As a member of the Etsy community, when I was creating a treasury today entitled “Gifts from the Sea”, incorporating some of my favorite colors, teal and turquoise, I stumbled on this site for vinyl decals. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ghettovinyl?page=2 My first thought was vinyl? Extremely objectionable! Okay... yuck. But as I scrolled down through the diverse offerings, I was amazed at how good they looked, how they transformed a wall and how utterly special they were. So the gal who writes about wabi sabi in one post and vinyl in the next keeps an open mind.
There was something for everyone. Something to spark a child's imagination,
the star struck,
the skateboarding teen,
or perhaps to serve as a spiritual reminder.
By the end, I was completely sold.
I think these are great. Not that I believe one should forsake the decorative arts. Beautiful stencil work by artisans such SF based Debra Disman of Artifactory Studio is always an option and should be considered first and foremost for integrity and lasting beauty. But for apartment dwellers, coeds in dorms, the non-committed, the budget conscious or the artistically challenged, I think these are a quick and easy decorating option and a heck of a lot of fun.
If you want to have fun decorating your space, I would be more than happy to oblige.
