Spruce up your walls for summer

 
We’ll be the first to admit that there are a lot of reasons to absolutely love the summer months: vacations, warm weather, time off work, fireworks, pool and beach days, sun tans, watermelon, and of course, lots and lots of gorgeous flowers! It’s one of the reasons we are completely smitten with summer. With florals blooming, budding, and thriving, the season of sun brings all kinds of color to the outdoors.
 
But what about the indoors? Wouldn’t it be nice to bring all those blooming flowers, gorgeous gardens, and beautiful buds into your home? To color each room in the house with nature’s finest work? Of course, you can gather and arrange a bouquet or two, but what about something that lasts a little longer? Something that will never wilt or fade
 
We know it may sound too good to be true, but with vinyl flower decals from Urbanwalls, you bring those gorgeous flowers inside, transforming the walls of your home as you build and create blooming bouquets of your own design. Blooming bouquets that will last the entire season—and even longer if you wish!


 

Choosing a Design for Your Vinyl Flower Decals

There is no “one way” to arrange our flower wall decals. You’ve got a style all your own, so let it shine through! How you map out and plan your design may depend on the size of the decals you choose or the space in which you’re installing.
 
Need a starting point or a few helpful hints and ideas? Even the best “gardeners” need a little inspiration sometimes! To get your stylistic juices flowing, we’ve put together a few different techniques for sprucing up your walls for the summer using our removable, flower wall decals.
 

Spaced

All of our flower decals look great spaced throughout a wall. The lovely thing about using flowers to decorate is that there is rarely an incorrect way to situate them throughout your space. For this look, you don’t have to worry about even or measured spacing. You can simply tack the flowers to the wall in a manner that is pleasing to the eye, overlapping some in larger clusters, while leaving smaller blooms out to offset the design. The key is to have negative space throughout the design, allowing a feeling of movement throughout the space! Think of it a bit like freestyling.

Clustered

With freestanding wall decals, you can layer each flower decal, building and arranging however you wish in order to create a gorgeous bouquet. Consider yourself the florist! You can layer each flower decal together into one giant focal point, or you can create several smaller clusters, or “bouquets”, throughout the space. Don’t be afraid to let your bouquet(s) be asymmetrical. In our opinion, that’s how they look best. The rule to remember when it comes to creating your unique design is that there really aren’t any rules. Make it whatever you want it to be!

Cascading

Instead of a clustered look, why not try a cascading one? Arranging your blooms closely, layer the decals on top of one another, overlapping in strategic areas to create a cascading waterfall of florals. Like all flower art, there’s not necessarily a right or wrong, or even a specific shape you must achieve. Work around existing décor and furniture to give yourself an everlasting arrangement, the perfect summertime or year-round focal point for a reading nook or favorite corner.

Small Bouquets

If you’ve chosen a flower decal pack with smaller-sized blooms and foliage, you may want to consider grouping them in small, delicate bouquets. In fact, covering an entire wall in baby bouquets might be the simplest thing you’ll do all week! Clustering the flowers together in small bunches throughout a wall gives your space a wallpapered look—with absolutely none of the hassle. We suggest pairing at least one leaf alongside every flower cluster to offset each bouquet and to work a little greenery into the design.
 
This method is about your preferences! You get to shape each cluster, layering the blooms together in the ways you like best. Although it may seem scary, we recommend cutting a few bouquets along one side to be placed against windowsills and trim for a more polished and complete look. Installation is super simple, super casual…but the end results? Anything but.

Flowing Garland

You may have thought creating a garland was outside of your skill set, something to be left to a florist. Well today, you are a wall florist and you’ve totally got this!
 
To begin, we recommend using a picture of a garland for reference (maybe something you find on Pinterest) to help you mimic the shape. Everyone needs a little outside boost of inspiration sometimes! After you’ve decided on the shape and spacing, use pieces of painter’s tape as a guide so you can plainly see where you want the flowers to start, curve, and finish.
 
Remember how we said you were a florist? Cluster the leaves at the garland’s ends and curve points, like a pro. Think of it as adding the finishing touches. The key to this design is lots of layering, so don’t be shy about overlapping the decals!

How to Install Vinyl Flower Decals

Now that you’ve settled on a design, you may be wondering, just how do you install our removable decals? We’ve broken it down for you in three easy to follow steps.

1) Arrange

Pick a wall, any wall—in any room of the house! After you’ve chosen the wall (or walls) that you’d like to use, arrange the blooms in the space by taping them with painter’s or masking tape. This allows you to rearrange your design before securing it to the wall. You know, in case you change your mind (let’s be honest, it happens to all of us).
 
If you’re looking for uniformity with your design, we highly suggest breaking out a measuring tape and making pencil marks to use as a guide.
 
Want a pro tip? Don’t be afraid to cut the decals! We know it can seem horrifying to cut your brand-new decals, but the results are well worth it. The idea is to arrange these “cut” decals around baseboards and windowsills. By cutting them in half (or less than half) it gives your design a more natural look, as if the pattern is carrying on.
 
After one bloom is taped to the wall, choose another, layering and spacing as you wish until your design is complete.

2) Peel

Are you happy with your design? Can you almost imagine that you’re smelling the bouquet’s sweet perfume? If the answer is yes, it’s time to peel the adhesive back from your decals. (If the answer is no, go back in and rearrange until you’re happy with your completed look!)
 
Keeping the bloom tacked to the wall, lift the flower decal so you can see the back. Starting in a corner, slowly peel the back from the decal to expose the adhesive. As you pull, stick and smooth the decal to the wall, slowly working your way to the bottom as you go.
 
Now peel the front transfer paper from the flowers, exposing their true colors! Remember to remove the paper slowly and at a 45-degree angle. It may even help to remove it in strips or sections.

3) Smooth

Using a credit card or squeegee, smooth any bubbles out of your blooming bouquet. Got a stubborn one that won’t disappear? You can poke a little hole in the bubble and press it down in order to get it to lay flat.
 
That’s it! You’re all finished! Now go get a sweet tea and relax in a swirl of blossoms! I guess we should have added a fourth step labeled “Relax and Admire”, huh?
