Merlin’s pants! This incredible Harry Potter decor wins the House Cup
Sometimes I have dreams of recreating Hogwarts in my own home and finally get that admissions owl I somehow missed at age eleven. Then you see what Jasper Price and his wife Angie have done to recreate the Hogwarts common room and realize that you’re out of your quidditch league. They’ve amassed the most mystical of Harry Potter decor collections (Mrs. Norris lookalike included!) and turned their home into the wizarding world of our dizziest daydreams.
The sweetest whimsical nursery decor (that you can totally use on your adult walls!)
Are you ever shopping online for that perfectly saccharine, pastel, animal-themed, or just plain sweet art for your walls and end up in the whimsical nursery decor section?

Your walls and floors will never be the same once they meet these funky & fun wall stencils
Wallpaper is making a comeback big time, wall decals are hot, but my favorite way to make a surface my own is with stencils.

Have you investigated the sheer amount of wall stencils you can nab online? Use ’em on the walls, on the floor (for a faux tile look or in place of a carpet!), or on a big piece of wood or canvas as artwork.
Here are a few of my fave funky and chic wall stencils to try out on your big blank walls and floors…
