If you ask me what my design style is, I’d probably look at you and kind of laugh a little because there isn’t really one name for the style I like, I love them all.
As an interior designer, every space I do is different and unique. I have my own signature style, that I’m still working on signaturing ???? but I am able to open myself up to a world of difference, change, and beauty. I love being able to have a client that loves modern and I can design a modern space. Or a client who loves a farmhouse style and I can design a farmhouse space. I love it all.
In my own home, however, I’m still deciding exactly what to call it. So far I’ve come up with “Glam, Farmhouse, Chic, Industrial”. And then I found Urban Wall decals, fell in love with the palm leaves, and decided I could totally be trendy too! I’m a little bit of everything rolled into a 116 year old historic home. Haha.

Decals can be pretty tedious and exhausting, but the outcome is always worth it. My first few leaves were such a pain but then I realized I was the one making it harder on myself! So, let me help you out here by giving you my tips on how to apply a decal!
1. Make sure the wall is clean, they will apply better on non-textured walls, but I have some light texture and they are still great!
2. Cut the decals out individually for the entire roll. This makes placing them on the wall easier and taking the back off quicker.
3. Peel of the top layer of paper from the decal and press the decal on the wall. You can use a small rolling paint brush or your hands to push the decal down like a sticker.
4. (okay, this is the step that helped me the most!) instead of peeling back the paper from the tip of the decal, go to the middle of the leaf and start there. As you tear a piece off, you’ll have the option to pull the paper back from the middle and lead to the outside. This step helps A LOT with the decals that have a ton of pointy ends like the leaves do! So you don’t have to do each stem individually! If you scroll up, you can see a few images of me doing this step!
