Review - Dezign With a Z

Dezign With a Z wall decals and wall stickers
I'm sure we have all come across many of those wall decal websites. I've noticed many of them have mostly the same type of decals, with only a handful that stand out. I tend to look for abstracts trees (i love trees), nature-related, and super cute anime-type wall decals. I found a company that sells the most adorable multi-colored anime-type wall decals, but of course, they are for kids. At the tender age of 21, i could still squeeze myself in that category! lol.

Dezign With a Z is a wall-decal company located in San Francisco. They have a hundreds of wall decals that vary in size and gives the customer the ability to customize it. With over 24 colors to choose from, you can have a complete "re-wallution", as they call it. I absolutely love the selection of decals. They also have Resin Acrylic Wall Mirrors in shapes of lips, hearts and even Asian-inspired. Below are a couple of wall decals they have available that I absolutely adore:

Thanks to Paula over at Dezign With a Z, I was sent two wall decals to review. One thing that intrigued me was that I wasn't able to choose the designs, they were chosen based on my blog style. I love that! Why? Because, as you can see, my layout has a tree and i LOVE trees :) So, what I received was a Cherry Blossom and Hollow Stars.

My wall decals both came in a bright red. When I saw the Cherry Blossom branch, I absolutely fell in love! The design is very modern and chic and I immediately knew where i was going to place it.  I noticed it looks good upside down. So, I placed it on the wall that everyone sees when they come in through the foyer of the house and at the top of the stairway.

Now, the application was a bit tough for me. We have very high ceilings so I grabbed the ladder and started to see how I was going to place it. The instructions say that you have to rid the sheet of air bubbles and make sure it completely sticks to the transparent sheet. This took about 5 minutes and the help of my sister. When i finally separated the decal from the other sheet, i placed it on the wall. This took another 6-7 minutes. It was rather tough to have the decal stick to the wall. I tried the credit card method, making sure to pull little by little but the decal kept sticking back to the transparent paper. When i finally got done with it, i smoothed it over on the wall and it looks amazing!

Overall, i love the wall decals that were chosen on my behalf. I think they fit my personality very well. Thank you to Dezign With a Z for the opportunity to review their great decals. The hollow stars still haven't been put up, but I have an idea of how i want to place them, I hope to take a picture when I get it done. The stars came in a set of 20 and don't have many different sections like the Cherry Blossom so it will be much easier and faster to apply to my wall.
