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.

Border, Border, on the Wall!

February 9th, 2011

Yes, borders on the wall still work.  Although, today’s style might be to border the border.  Create a border within a border by taping off a section on the wall and paint it in a contrasting or coordinating color.  Now you now have a defined field to stencil the border design. 

Connie Griffiths a decorative stencil artist in the suburbs of Chicago asked us to create a stencil to coordinate with Pottery Barn bedding being used in the room.  Connie’s Border came to life and tied the room together, it completes the design project.  The design is offered in two sizes (large is shown.)  

Additionally, Connie had us cut a custom name stencil which she used to personalize the footboard. 

A simple border can still do magic.  It’s a decorative detail that may never go out of style.
