What is Chevron (And How To Add Some To Your Home)

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

What is it about chevron that is so alluring? It seems like everywhere I look lately, I see chevron patterns in all shapes and sizes: on walls, rugs, furniture, clothing (and not only Missoni), jewelry, office products, really on everything. What Is Chevron? Chevron is a simple inverted V-shaped graphic pattern (also often called zig […]

Faux Dymo Embossed Labels Generator

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

I love the look of those classic, 70s Dymo labels and after many years of being out of vogue, they have become quite popular again. Just the other day, I got an email update from one of my favorite blogs, Fuzzimo, announcing a new embossed label generator. Antoniu, the designer behind the blog, creates and […]

Decorating With Green Wallpaper

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Wallpaper has really come back in style with force in the past few years, and while it may be a tad more work intensive to put up, it truly is a great alternative to paint. There are more colors, styles and designs to choose from than ever, and the abundance can be quite overwhelming. Where […]

Cloches (aka Bell Jars)

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Cloches, which are also known as bell jars or bell glasses (“cloche” is French for “bell”), were originally invented to help hold in moisture and protect tender plants from harsh weather, insects and other potential hazards. In gardening literature, they were first mentioned around 1630, and they are listed among mandatory garden tools and equipment […]

Beautiful Christmas Decor From Denmark

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I recently discovered the fabulous Danish company Walther & Co and instantly fell in love with their understated, monochrome and rustic aesthetic. Very Scandinavian country shabby chic. It’s the sort of stuff that makes me wish I had an old renovated farmhouse somewhere in the Swedish countryside (decorated like this) where I would gather all […]

Home Decorating Ideas – Looking Back, Part 2

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

As I mentioned in the first post in this series (Decoration Inspiration Part 1), I love magazines and always save them (don’t ask me how many magazine subscriptions I currently have – it’s embarrassing!). Every now and then, I take a bunch of issues from the same month a certain number of years ago and […]

Decoration Inspiration – Looking Back, Part 1

Friday, September 16th, 2011

A New Beginning This post marks the beginning of a new and exciting direction here at Wall Decor Source. When I started this blog, it was to share my love for anything that goes on a wall: wallpaper, unusual lamps, art, etc. But after a while, the scope of it started to feel a bit […]

Home And Decor Trends Fall And Winter 2011/2012

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

It almost feels like a shame to even think about fall when there is still a little bit left of summer, but as much as I want it to be summer forever, the change of seasons is around the corner and before we know it, we’ll be curling up in front of the fire with […]

Get Semi-Personalized Room Decorating Ideas

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

I was recently trying to come up with some new ideas for decorating a room and happened upon a fun HomeGoods quiz. It was created by Deborah Needleman, who was the editor of one of my all-time favorite magazines: the much missed Domino (thank goodness I subscribed while they were still in publication), so you […]

Mosaic Tiles

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

Mosaic – images or patterns created with small shards of stone, glass and other materials – has been popular “forever”. Remnants have been found that date back to the Third Millennium BC (you can see a brilliant example of this at the British Museum in London – the Standard of Ur, a mosaic of shell, […]

Baby Nursery Decor Inspiration

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

This post is not only about wall decor but decorating in general, and decorating nurseries in particular. It’s one of the most fun types of rooms to design, and you have free reins to use items, materials and colors you normally wouldn’t. Having said that, I have to confess that I prefer nurseries with a […]

Kitchen Tiles

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Tiles come in so many materials, colors, shapes and designs that choosing just one is not easy! Unlike other items I have written about on this blog (wallpaper borders, metal wall art), gorgeous design is abundant here, and once you start browsing around, you wish you had many more spaces for tiles in your home. […]

Wallpaper Borders

Friday, August 6th, 2010

I have always thought wallpaper borders were among the ugliest forms of wall decor that you could add to a room (unless it’s in a kid’s room. There, they are cute and fun, and I also think they’re adorable as baby nursery decor). Just like with metal wall art, wallpaper borders seems to be a […]

Decorating With Black Wallpaper

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Black walls sounds like something that could look clubby at best and dire and depressing at worst, but choosing the right shade of black, and putting it in a room that can handle it, can result in a very modern, sophisticated look. Is black a color? Yes and no. Since it absorbs all light and […]

Using Upholstery Fabric As Wall Decor

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

So you’re bored with your old white painted walls, or perhaps they’re not so fresh-looking anymore, but you don’t want to bother with wallpaper or prefer not to put nails in them to hang art. Or maybe you’re renting, or living in a dorm room, where you’re not allowed to make any permanent changes. Using […]

5 Unusual Wall Mirrors

Friday, July 30th, 2010

People have enjoyed looking at their reflection since the beginning of time. Historians think the first “mirrors” were likely pools of water, and I would have loved to be there when the first person ever saw his or her reflection. I wonder what they were thinking? I know the first time my dog saw herself […]

Metal Wall Art

Swirly flower metal wall art

People have enjoyed decorating their walls since ancient times. Just look at all the cave paintings, dating tens of thousands of years back, found around the world, and the hieroglyphs in Egyptian pyramids. Although back then, the drawings were not just for decorative purposes – some scientists think cave paintings were ways to tell a […]

Chandeliers On The Wall

Friday, July 23rd, 2010
Bathroom Chandelier

I have always loved chandeliers. To me, they bring up nostalgic images of European castle ballrooms filled with people in gorgeous outfits dancing the night away, extravagant theater lobbies, the Moscow subway, old churches with enormous (and sometimes very unusual) chandeliers hovering above the visitors, or here in the US, grandiose estates owned by the […]

10 Gorgeous Nature Wallpaper Designs

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Wallpaper, invented by the Chinese around 2,000 years ago and popular for centuries all over the world, sadly fell out of favor in the 80s and 90s, but is finally making a big comeback. My earliest memory of wallpaper is these murky brown grasscloth ones my parents had all over our house in the 70s […]

Cute, Stylish And Funny Wall Quotes

Counting Sheep Wall Quote

In the past few years, using vinyl stickers as wall decor has become hugely popular all over the world. And it is a genius idea: they’re inexpensive, you can use them as tiny accent pieces or cover an entire wall (or ceiling);  most are so easy to put up a child can do it; they’re […]
