Retro Flower Power Decorating Ideas

July 28th, 2011

I am so excited.  I recently (finally) set up my Etsy Shop.  Yesterday I got a conversation (what Etsy calls e-mails) from Vanessa (Melimebabybeeshop) saying she had featured one of my flower power decals in a Treasury.  I’m so new I don’t even know what a treasury is but I LOVE that she loves us.

We are always thinking about style . . . your style!  Today’s decorating style is a Retro Flower Power look perfect for girls, both teens and tweens.   Even a toddler room can have a retro feel when you use a design such as our Personalized Flower Power Decal Kit.  It’s so much fun to express your style when you use vinyl wall decals . . . not to mention the biggest benefit . . . decals are so quick & easy!

We’ve added a whole new flower power collection of vinyl decals that are bold, sassy, and super cool.  They were styled after popular signature style flower power stencils.  They make us smile!   Bright vinyl colors coordinate with the fabulous and popular Pottery Barn Colors paint palette from Benjamin Moore.

The Flower Power Era  is my absolute favorite retro theme.   I loved Flower Power in the 70’s and I think I love it even more today.  I get so excited when I see peace signs and pom pom ball fringe.  What makes it even more appealing is bringing today’s color combo’s such as pink & brown or lime green & brown into the room or up on the wall.  Traditional flower power color schemes still work and have withstood the test of time.  PB Teen pairs traditional color combos like yellow and orange, purple and teal, and then throw in a new look turquoise with brown & white.   Look around!  Let your imagination run wild.  Inspiration is endless and you will find it everywhere.  As always, we suggest that you choose from the heart, pick colors that make you happy.

Now for the fun!  Here’s two of our new decal designs.  We hope that they will Inspire! you to do your next room redo in Retro.

Girls Gone Wild

February 2nd, 2011

. . . wild for a pink zebra room!

Take a peak at Maddie’s new room.  She loves all things pink and zebra.  Her passion – gymnastics.  So when Grandma announced her gift for Christmas was to let the three sisters reDecorate their bedrooms, Maddie went a little wild.

A decorative painter was hired who called StencilsAndDecals to cut one-time use vinyl stencils to complete the project.  We incorporated Maddie’s Style into the room.  Maddie loves the mod look so she chose peace signs, a hip 70’s  retro style font for her name, our new Zebra Stripe border stencil and a custom gymnast design.  We then “zebrafied” a heart for the graphic boder.

The color palette – two shades of Sherwin Williams pink paint were chosen for the walls.   The top was painted with the lighter shade SW6849 Partytime and the bottom painted with SW6854 Impatient Pink. 

Our Zebra Stripes stencil was used to paint the white border for a dramatic designer look. 

The designing didn’t stop there.  Every girly loves to doodle and a custom chalkboard was installed.  Accomplish this by using either chalkboard paint or give us a call to place a custom order for chalkboard vinyl.  Chalkboard vinyl can be cut in all kinds of nifty shapes or if you choose a standard square or rectangle shape; get Dad involved and have him paint molding and add a frame as shown .

Maddie’s room is beautiful . . . just another wild, affordable, and easy way to decorate with paint!
