A Year Of Maximalism

In 2018, you’ll be saying goodbye to subtle repeats and gentle shades – and instead, saying a big fat Hellooo! to wild, brave and bold patterns. Maximalism is back with a bang.

Abstract geometric patterns, gigantic florals, dreamy landscapes and even pineapples (yes, really) are going to be creeping into our homes this year.

Wall murals were made for bold patterns.

Unlike wallpapers, where you’re constrained by the repeat – wall murals can be made bespoke for the size of your room. And there are 1000s of patterns to choose from too. Feeling experimental? With wall mural you can tweak each design so its’ bespoke to you.

Take a look at the gold, pink and triangle design above ***points up*** there is no way you could get the same statement styling with a wallpaper.

STYLE TIP: This mural looks so fabulous as the shapes and colours in the design have been echoed in the room’s decor. Just look at that gold lanterns on the coffee table and the geometric prints on the cushions – which all sit together in abstract harmony.

Small Spaces Are King in 2018

This year, small homes are going to take over Pinterest. The rule than a tiny home should be painted only in white is, frankly, old news. If you live in a smaller home – then it is the ideal spot to test out a wall mural. Don’t just stick to walls – allow yours to creep up the ceiling. This tricks the eye into thinking your space is waaaay bigger than it looks.

I’m in love with this 80s inspired design which is spot on in this all white home.

If you rent a shoebox? Then even better – Pixers’ wall murals are all self-adhesive so they can be peeled off and put somewhere else up to 10 times (without destroying the wall surface). So when it’s time to move, peal yours off and take it with you.

Make Walls Instagram Worthy Right Now

With our love of instagram showing no end, then more of us will be spending our year looking for the perfect backdrop. One that captures our exactly who we are and reflects our style.

Take a look the above – isn’t this wall mural sticker a kick-ass backdrop for your Instagram feed?

Got to love the way the wall mural design has been allowed to run wild on the wall, taking over the storage units and updating this otherwise dull space. The key to this is to choose bold shapes in vivid shades, then over-lay your design to give a 3-d effect.

I can see you have a 1000s of likes with this wall as you selfie backdrop.

DIY Dummies To Take Centre Stage

Updating a piece of furniture like your desk or a chest of drawers has never been easier. It’s really easy to transform your furniture because you need minimal tools and no DIY experience.  You just stick and go.

If you are really nervous, you can order your design pre-cut so that all you have to do is stick it on. How simple is that?

STYLE TIP: With our love of indoor plants is going no-where. Celebrate your green finger triumphs with a leafy print on workspace – bring a bit of the green outdoors into your home office.

Move over Living Rooms

One of the fresh new ways to use wall murals in to stick them up in unexpected rooms. Transform your bathroom into a chill out spa with a blooming floral blossoming across the walls.

Oh, and all Pixers’ products are eco-friendly too as well as they print using odourless, ecological materials making thee safe to hang in children’s rooms.

Tired kitchens can also been given a facelift with wall murals.

STYLE TIPS: Rather than replace your kitchen units, vamp them up with a wall sticker and use the off-cuts to decorate your island.
