A Garden Playroom - Win this item!




This decal set from evgieNev transformed my daughter’s playroom (a.k.a our den) into a garden, with an adorable pink elephant frolicking amongst the flowers! We just moved into our new house, and all I had in there before was a rug and a bunch of toys scattered around the room. It was a dull, lifeless space and all I could pay attention to was the mess of toys spread out on the floor. Even my daughter couldn’t be persuaded by all her toys to spend much time in there! The listing states that this set is intended for a space 102” wide, but boy did my mom and I stretch it. I wanted the flowers to go all the way around the room so that her playroom would look like a little garden, but was afraid it would end up looking too sparse.  As you can see though, it turned out adorable! My mom and I taped all of the decals onto the walls before transferring any, and had a great time arranging and rearranging the flowers and stems to make them all look “attractively random”. This could certainly be a one-person job, but it helps to have someone at least looking over while you’re putting the stems up…especially the skinny ones…so that they can tell you if they’re straight! The decals come on opaque transfer paper, so we just had to be careful to align the flowers properly to meet the stems (to avoid this you can place the flower tops floating above the stems, which I think would look great too). Also, I feel that opaque transfer paper doesn’t stick as well to the decals as clear transfer paper so you have to be careful when peeling off the backing. However, this makes transferring onto the wall easier, so you decide which you prefer to deal with ;). All in all it was a really simple process, and we finished in an afternoon. It would’ve taken me much longer to paint all the flowers by hand. Now I smile every time I walk into that room - toys on the floor and all – and my daughter walks around touching all of the flowers.

     "Evgie and Ev are real gals with passion and expertise in digital illustration and interior decoration. Each of us liked drawing very much since childhood, it became our professions.
     With vinyl wall decals being the latest trend in home decor - easy to apply, easy to remove, easy to tailor to specific wall or surface - we offer handmade large and small vinyl stickers with our designs and ideas for kids and grown-ups rooms. We start with idea, pencil and blank paper and then render our designs digitally for vinyl cutting."
