This post introduces a new feature to the blog called "Would You Ever? ..." It'll profile various home trends and beg the question, "Would you ever do this in your own home?"

For starters: wall decals, stencils, and stamps. Is this a trend you could see putting to use in your space? Decals are especially handy for commitment phobes or for renters without any freedom to paint, and stencils and stamps can create a custom wallpaper look. However, the trend can veer pretty easily into cheesy and cheap-looking. The photos shown below are, I think, exceptions to this rule.

Here are some of our favorite custom walls, courtesy of stencils, stamps, and decals:

Basically all of the wall decals from Land of Nod are phenomenal for kids' rooms--and lots of adult spaces, too; see the gold dot decal above. Fawn & Forest is also a source for amazing decals to spiff up your kiddo's room.

Here's a great design from Rosenberry Rooms, which has dozens upon dozens of decal options:

And get a load of this next wall, which was literally accomplished with a rubber stamp and a gold stamp pad. It's in the home of East Nashville blogger and illustrator Rebekkah Seale, whose home was featured on Design*Sponge last year. "This is my (much less expensive) take on block-printed wallpaper," said Rebekkah. "I stamped three of the dining room walls with a four-inch bumblebee stamp from The English Stamp Company. After experimenting with lots of different paints and inks, I ended up using a regular old metallic gold stamp pad. The bees took several days to dry, but the effect is amazing—they really shine in the sunlight!"

And what are your thoughts on this room, which is accessorized with good old-fashioned handwriting?


And one more "writing on the wall" example that I dig:
