blue and brown

one

d*s reader kristin gave us a great tip in her comment under erika waverly's post- blue and brown of australia! sydney australia's blue and brown studio (lead by skye ‘blue’ vermeesch and kirstenbBrown) creates beautiful designs for the home. they have a line of removeable (but not reusable) wall graphics, much akin to blik's and beearo. blue and brown's line is called candiy (can DIY) and features 16 colorful, modern designs that are a must-see. they have some really lovely graphics that would easily blend into a space and add some much needed dimension to plain walls. 18 decals cost roughly $44 american dollars- candiy decals aren't currently carried outside of the us, but you can contact them directly to get purchase and international shipping details. enjoy! [thanks, kristen!]

These are amazing... the leaves are my favorite. They seem like a really nice, modern alternative to stenciling.

I am curious to know if any readers have used wall decals (blik, beearo, blue and brown, etc.) with success. Pros and cons? Worth the money? Other creative uses for these?

cool! it's the first one I saw from aussie.

I've seen more of decals like these from europe. I think they are more popular there. In Singapore, decals are mostly used on retail shop windows, so most of them are custom made according to the retailer's specifications.

Definitely will bookmark this, thanks grace!

I'm from Sydney and have used both Blik and Blue & Brown. Usage was limited to a small area of my son's room however. In terms of quality, Blik decals seem a bit tougher and more durable. So many companies now produce variations of these decals that anyone can design and make them. Even regular folks like you or I can design our own stencils because the technology is readily available to anyone. B&B are primarily digital graphic designers who release their designs for use on any number of products. Still, some of the best uses and designs are out of the UK. The market there is completely saturated with graphic designers who print to canvas, do decals, and even print to textiles.
