Well we’re at week 4 of the One Room Challenge, and time is flying! We have one month left to finish transforming this space into the cutest little nursery!
This week’s post is sponsored by Décor Imprimé. All opinions are my own.
We had to do some last minute shifting of projects when we realized that the giant Ikea order we made was missing key pieces of the closet system we bought – and because Ontario is still in lockdown, we can’t just show up at Ikea to get the missing pieces. Thankfully we were able to order the additional parts we needed for curbside pickup, so we’ll be able to start that project soon!
So we decided to do the wallpaper feature wall this past week and I’m SO happy with how it looks! It’s just the most perfect print, and I can’t wait to get the rest of the decor in here! It’s going to just be the cutest!!
This is the largest wall in the nursery, so we thought it would be the perfect place to do a feature wall. The crib will be centered, and then we’ll likely do a plant on one side, and probably some baskets on the other!
Wallpaper Feature Wall
The wallpaper we used for this project was generously gifted by Décor Imprimé (Printed Decor). They are a Quebec-based company, and they work with different artists and make/print everything in house with eco-friendly materials. I initially stumbled across their murals on instagram months ago, and just fell in love with everything they have! Seriously, it was so hard to choose which print to go with, because they have SO many stunning patterns to choose from. And the best part about their products is that they are all peel & stick wall murals, which makes installation incredibly easy.
Once you make your pattern selection, you then get to choose the finish! This is something I hadn’t seen previously with vinyl wallpaper companies – typically the finish is smooth like a sticker, but here you also have the option to go with a textured finish.
To know exactly how much we needed, we measured our wall and input our measurements on their website to calculate the size and price of the mural. There were very detailed instructions on how to properly measure so that you get the correct amount printed. Once the order was placed, I couldn’t believe how quickly it was printed and shipped out. We did have some issues with the shipping company not being able to locate our address right away, but luckily Décor Imprimé has such great customer service, and they sorted things out for us right away!
The mural came with really straightforward instructions for applying it to the wall. The package also comes with an applicator to make installation easy! You just need a few other supplies – a level, tape measure, painters tape, and an exacto knife for trimming.
Our mural came in five panels, each with 0.5″ of overlap so that it lines up nicely with the pattern. The panels were labeled 1-5 so that we knew which one to start with. They also recommend to do the installation with a buddy, just to make things a lot easier when you are lining up the panels and peeling the sticker.
The panels are designed to be installed left to right on your wall, and installing them was so simple. You simply start unrolling the panel and tape the top of it to the wall with your painters tape. Once you make sure it’s level, you have your helper hold the rest of the roll while you start to peel back a small portion of the sticker backing at the top. You then cut off the white backing and secure the top of the panel to the wall. Then, all you need to do is slowly peel the white backing down as you use the applicator to smooth out the sticker.
Lining up the panels was also super straightforward and required the same process as installing the first panel. Again, it was super helpful to do this as a team (and Brian did most of the hard work on the ladder!) It was definitely easier to maneuver the excess rolls with an extra person. It took us about an afternoon (with a few breaks for me to sit and one to go get ice cream!) It was such a fun little project to do as a family of three!
And isn’t it STUNNING? We ultimately went with the White Flowers & Co. by Natasha Prevost, in the Olive colour and a textured finish. Again, they had so many gorgeous patterns, so I made a list of my top faves:
I’m so excited about this wall now! I didn’t want to give too much of the decor away before the final reveal, but I can’t wait to get the crib bedding ready, and get everything styled up nicely for our little flower child! I just get so happy thinking about all of the cute milestone photos we can take of her in front of this wall! I can’t even wait!
Thanks again to Décor Imprimé for working with me on this! I couldn’t be happier to have worked with such a wonderful company for this project!
Stay tuned for next week as we hopefully chip away more from this list!
