You're busy customizing your carpentry, looking for some nice and stylish furniture to complement your newly renovated home or reading a catalogue of table lights when all of a sudden, you raise your head and staring at you is none other than…the empty wall. Feels like something's missing.
An empty wall can keep your home in a simple tone but it could be boring too. Remember that your home is a personal zone that reflects your state of mind and your personality. So you start to think about putting something nice on the wall, something special or something that reflects your personality. How about family photos? Well, you haven't framed them yet have you? Some paintings? Err, boring. How about a personalized wall decal? A visual image that reflects your thoughts, and infuses them into your personal space.
Sounds interesting? Here are 6 types of wall decals that will give you some ideas on how to brighten up your home with a dash of your personality.
1. Seasonal element
Living in a country on the equator we can only cherish the hot summer and pretend it's wintertime when it rains. Well, that doesn't have to be the case in your home! A visual of leaves falling quietly from a tree during autumn, flowers blooming in spring, or some snowflakes gently marking the beginning of winter can make up a totally different world within your home. You’re creating a world for yourself without travelling thousands of kilometres!
People who love animals do have a kind heart. And seeing a lovely animal feature can bring up some warm and comforting moments that help relieve stress. As an animal lover, you can have a curious cat figure on your wall or if you’re not fond of those fluffy things then there’s always a forest of animals! Trek into the peaceful woods and observe silhouettes of wild animals that also reflect your inner love for the wilderness.
3. Cartoon Figure
Do you still remember your childhood superhero? How you were once an enthusiastic fan of Sailor Moon (err I mean Superman) who motivated you to become a better person? Give a shout to these inspirational heroes who accompanied you throughout your carefree and wonderful childhood years.
There must be an inspiring quote by someone important or great that made you a successful person today. Or you yourself have been through some life experience that you want to share with the next generation. Keep it on the wall so it remains a prominent part of daily life. Stay motivated and steadfast as you continually move towards your success goals.
5. Pop Art
True classics never die. You can either have Breakfast at Tiffany's or simply throw yourself into a thriller by the King of Pop, MJ.
Remember that this is your space and only what you feel is right should go on those walls. Take your pick and enjoy that spark of personality day in, day out.
