Your last attempt to redecorate kidlet’s room went down like a bank heist. (“Don’t scream … just slowly hand over the Dora posters.”)
But she won’t feel robbed of style with Walltat decals. Created by Chicago interior designer Jordan Guide, the easy-on, easy-off decorations adhere to the wall like stickers. The kids’ collection bubbles over with delightfully simple scenes and characters (bears, castles, carousel horses). Customize to your liking with 34 colors and sizes up to ten feet long.
The finished designs ship in less than three weeks.
Then you stick ’em up.
