First Signs of Spring

See how easily a space can be transformed using one of our new Decorative Prints. In keeping with our theme of spring, the “Branch & birds” Decorative Print (#17585) has been used. There are 3 different color options in this design, so choose the color scheme that works best with your décor. Since Decorative Prints are removable and repositionable, if the branch isn’t quite where you want it, just peel it off and move it around until you are satisfied with its placement.
The focal point for the tabletop uses our chipboards. “Spring” (which ties in nicely with our theme) has six letters—the exact number of chipboards that come in our Chipboard accessory (#300106). So using the MyDesign Suite, "Spring" was created to fit perfectly on the chipboard. The font,Fantini (5” tall) is fun and playful. Complement by using the colors of Robin’s Egg (#9058), Lemon Chiffon (#9022), and Cotton Candy (#9029) in our MyDesign expression. You could simply choose a single color, but if you’re looking to break out of the winter blahs, don’t be afraid to explore with some splashes of coordinating colors. Glue some matching decorative paper to the chipboard and then applied the expressions. To add the finishing touches to this project, add our UL Dress-Ups™ Gems (#300104), all three colors of the Mini Blooms (#300191, #300192, #300193), and some coordinating ribbon.

Transform. That is a word that is often used to describe what Uppercase Living vinyl can do to any home or office. However, it doesn’t have to be limited to a single space.

Vinyl can truly “transform” an entire room!

Complement a welcoming expression with a beautiful scroll embellishment border and a variety of colors of flowing grass. Take the scroll and add it to the hurricane lamp. One embellishment allows for two different placements and ties the theme together.

In this playroom, the Adorable alphabet on pg. 76 was used as a border and complemented it with a Chalk Wall School House, a Contemporary Clock with a My Design Suite Expression, and even a fun charger and easel to tie the entire look together. There are so many items available, the options seem endless!

Vinyl truly is as versatile as any other home décor product. It is incredibly easy to install and then change, and is far more affordable then custom paint or wallpaper in any space. And with Uppercase Living, you can truly customize their space with the incredible variety of colors and sizes not available anywhere else.

It is so rewarding to be able to completely transform a room in just a few hours. What will YOU do with it?

Give Peace a Chance!

Peace signs are back in trend right now. We’re seeing them everywhere, particularly in teen décor. So, now Uppercase Living offers a peace sign embellishment in the Embellishment library (Item #45225_ _ [2"–18"]). We received a ton of requests for this, and recognizing that peace signs are trending big right now, we opted not to wait till the next catalog release, but to send it to the embellishment library immediately.

Add matching vinyl peace signs to the walls, lampshades, closet doors, or other furniture in your room to complete the “peace” look! A splash of Electric Pink, Shoreline Blue, Green Tea, and Chocolate Brown peace signs would match this bedding beautifully.

And these embellishments don’t have to remain in bedroom décor. Teens can put them on their lockers, notebooks, laptops, or cars. Can you imagine? A super-cute peace-sign-themed dorm room! Because it is an embellishment, this design is available in a huge range of sizes (from 2” to 18” wide!), so you're are sure to find something that works for you.
