I can’t believe how huge wall decals are right now. Each week I’m coming across more companies that specialize in these vinyl works of art, and I’m constantly amazed by how some really look like actual hand-painted wall murals. I found Apple Pie Design for the first time last night, and had to share. No dorm room decor here – these are sophisticated and grown up.
Apple Pie is a decal company out of Rhode-St-Gen?se Belgium, but with a website in English, French, and Dutch (covers most of us), it’s easy to navigate. They also ship worldwide, yeah! I find that their designs suit many tastes, from traditional to contemporary, whimsical, or even a little French country.
It’s hard to find decals that appeal to so many decor styles from a single company, but Apple Pie seems to cover everyone. Just like apple pie, a dessert that all seem to agree on. Aren’t these great? You can even dress up a child’s bedroom with silhouettes, or add understated elegance to the top corner of a room (below).

It was exciting to discover Ferm Living out of Denmark because everything from their beautiful website spoke to me, especially the peacock wallpaper and their very grown up wall decals. So sophisticated, so gorgeous, while yet still maintaining a bit of subtle charm so as to not send your room decor into a state of absolute shock (as some wallpapers can). I love these images from Elle Decor showing Ferm wallpaper, a great example of how pairing it with ordinary furnishings really works well, adding glamour to a casual space gives your room a voice!
I think it’s best to keep bold wallcoverings on a single wall (vs. all four), unless it’s in a small room or a narrow hallway, then I say install it on all the walls (even the ceiling if you so fancy) and have yourself a wallpaper party! Otherwise, one wall is enough for me. Ferm also designs classy wall decals, as you’ll see in the grouping below. Browse the Ferm website for more examples, and a huge thank you to Imelda for the tip via her lovely blog!
Camilla has a new gicl?e fine art print in her shop, “Giovannina“, signed and numbered, it’s a limited edition of 100 – so pick yours up as soon as possible! Camilla is known around the world and may sell out quickly. The illustration is printed on a page from a Swedish book that dates back to 1856, $60- USD, print only.

The photography of Agatha Katzensprung is quite emotional, don’t you think? It’s photographers like Agatha that make us want to snap more photos and stretch our imagination. You have to look at her portfolio, gorgeous. A special thanks to Maryam for posting about Agatha, or else I may not have found her. What beauty! The image of the girl in the field, in her frilly dress, is my favorite. I think all women need to be photographed like this, in an empty field wearing something gorgeous. :)
