About the Designer...
Hi there my name is Danielle. I'm from the beautiful city of Vancouver where I live with my amazing husband and two super cute boys... seriously, the cutest ever ;)
What do you make? I make vinyl wall decals.
How did you get started? It was honestly something that I stumbled upon. I have been in the graphic design field for 10 years and my husband had a cutter. I thought it would be a fun hobby and I just stepped out and gave it a go.. little did I know that I would be able to do this full time from my own home.
What inspires your creativity? I get a ton of inspiration from blogs and home decorating sites.
How long have you been doing this? a very busy year and a half :)
Your home decor is about to get a big facelift with vinyl wall decals from UrbanWalls. With unique quotes to modern, chic designs, you'll have so much fun dreaming up your new interior design project!
Danielle sent me her very popular, Keep Calm Carry On vinyl wall decal. This is my first wall decal experience, so I was a little nervous about the whole process of putting it on the wall. However, easy to use directions are included with the decal, so newbies like me can figure out how to apply it properly.
This design is 23" wide x 33" high. Since it was such a large design and I was applying it by myself, I pressed the decal onto the wall as I was slowly removing the backing at a 45 degree angle. This seemed to work well except for one little circle from the crown that I noticed later on the backing. I was easily able to use tweezers to delicately put it on the wall once I was done.
Once the backing was off and I had rubbed the decal onto the wall pretty well, I started to pull off the transfer tape, also at a 45 degree angle. I did have a few intricate areas (like the area above) where I had to slow down, go back, and scratch the transfer tape over the decal again so it would stick better onto the wall's texture. This is certainly to be expected with such small details on any decal, but easily fixed.
I had so much fun putting this up, and my arms even got a little work out too! Ha! I love the design, the matte finish, and that I don't have to ruin our apartment walls with paint, frames, or other decor just to have something on the wall. Vinyl wall decals also remove easily, without damaging your wall. You can choose your colors for your wall decals, and truly transform a room with a whole new look with just a little time. I have to say I've had an excellent experience with UrbanWalls, and I think anyone can easily put up their own decal. UrbanWalls shipped my decal in a shipping tube to protect it from damage, and I think the materials for the decal are a very high quality.
The Girly Girl Tree decal is adorable!
Danielle recently launched her own blog where she plans to share things that inspire her such as graphic design, interior design, fashion, and deals. I love her posts so far, and have enjoyed going back through them all. It's inspired me a bit too!
