Would You Ever Decorate With Stickers?

Would You Ever Decorate With Stickers?

Although wall decals are having a moment in the spotlight, somehow they don't seem as terrifying as stickers. Maybe that's because wall decals are ok to put on the walls and stickers feel like little kids behaving badly. Check out this installation that might have you thinking otherwise. Would you decorate with stickers?

Although this space in Brisbane might look a little crazy and over the top (and it is), that's ok. That's what art installations are for. This room started stark white and folks were given stickers to help decorate it.

Even if your first reaction is one of "whoa, never in my house" what would happen if you did it just on an accent wall? Or the space where a headboard should go? How about the back of a closet or the back of a bookcase that might need a little flare?

The idea of stickers only seems scary when you think about the removal of them, but in this day and age, even that isn't really a hard thing with strippers and scrapers to help out. Maybe having your stairwell covered in stickers isn't a horrible idea? Maybe it would be so awesome that it would make your friends weep when they came over to take a peek. Ok, probably not, but we're willing to bet it might be more practical than you think!

Do you like the idea for home use? Check out more photos from this crazy installation for further inspiration over at Colossal. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
