Decorate Your Walls in Two Minutes
Fly on the Wall
REAL SIMPLE. REAL LIFE. executive producer Jude Weng created a different landscape on each bedroom wall of her son Hudson, 2, using self-adhesive designs from Blik, a surface graphics company. “I wanted a fun, colorful environment for Hudson―a place of inspiration, nothing too precious, a room where a kid could be a kid,” says Jude.
What she used: Blik Fly decals, whatisblik.com, $25 for 6 decals.
Sea It to Believe It
For Hudson’s underwater seascape of turtles, seahorses, and manta rays, Jude chose to use Re-Stik decals from Blik, which can be reused and repositioned many times. (Blik decals without Re-Stick technology can be removed easily but not reused.)
What she used: Wee Gallery Undersea Re-Stik set, whatisblik.com, $38 for a set of 46 decals.
Hudson wakes up to his own version of the Jungle Book every day―swinging monkeys, falling leaves, and a lion.
What she used: Wee Gallery Jungle Re-Stik Blik, whatisblik.com, $38 for 78 decals.
Jude removed the bi-fold doors of Hudson’s closet, painted each panel a different color, and stuck on the decals. (Note: For maximum adhesion to freshly-painted surfaces, wait two weeks before applying decals.)
What she used: Giant Robot’s Small Robots, whatisblik.com, $24 for 8.
Pleased with the way her son’s room turned out, Jude decided to decal her office. This cityscape welcomes visitors to the lobby of production company Brand New Entertainment in Los Angeles.
What she used: Stone Jungle by artist André da Silva Cruz , whatisblik.com, $65.
Jude’s personal office―painted in a color she’s affectionately dubbed Real Simple Blue―features this fanciful work of art.
What she used: A Caged Bird Dreams by artist Youthana Yuos, whatisblik.com, $50.
This Bud’s For You
