Etsy Find of the Day: Tree Hugger Wall Graphic

Have we all finally accepted the idea that wall decals are probably here to stay?

It's not such a bad thing. Personally, I kind of like them. They're a quick and simple way to dress up a blank wall and dramatically change the look of a space. Plus, they're a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to apply than wallpaper or a handpainted mural -- and a lot less hassle to un-do when you're ready for something new.

I especially like the look of large botanical decals -- so perfect for bringing a bit of awakening spring inside your home -- and even more so when they're applied in crisp white on a softly colored wall to create a striking silhouette.

The Tree Hugger wall graphic, $35 from Etsy seller Elly Nelly (aka the mom-and-daughter textile design team of Elaine and Nell Oliver), comes in a choice of 16 colors. Combine it with a set of Fly Away bird decals, $22, as shown above, and you'll have a whole lot of look for not a lot of cash.

Trees and birds not your thing? No problem. There are dozens of other decals -- from watchful felines to creeping vines to simple geometric graphics -- in Elly Nelly's Etsy shop. Bonus: The decals can be applied to windows, glass doors, and mirrors as well.

Lots of great designs over at that shop! We got some decals from IKEA awhile ago and made a decorative "headboard" over our bed. I'm going to be keeping all those nice flowers, vines, and branches in mind for when we redo our living room this summer.

Whenever I see these types of wall decals I wonder whether one could just paint over them, like a reverse stencil, and then remove. Never having played with one, I suppose they're not quite that sticky. But it's tempting to try.
