Feature Wall Ideas: Quote wall stickers

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Various home decor products feature quotes, but it’s one of those things that’s best used in moderation – too many quotes all over the place can be overkill. But one of the ways in which quotes can be used successfully in home decoration is in creating a feature wall.

When the words ‘feature wall’ are mentioned, it can conjure up images of a wall that you’ve spent ages decorating to perfection. But when wall stickers are used, the hours spent labouring on getting it perfect are vastly reduced.

To get a quote on a wall no longer requires a super steady hand and good handwriting to painstakingly paint every letter on – ready made wall stickers do the wording job for you. All you have to do, is choose an appropriate wall space and apply the stickers.

Whether you want to create a quote feature wall in your living room, bedroom, hall, study, kitchen or another room of your home, then here are 15 ideas to inspire you.
