There is something about adding layers to your look that just screams sophistication. By strategically using wall decals, you can create an eye-catching display that will transform any room in your home. Wall decals are a superb way to add personality and style to your space without breaking the bank. The best part is, they are super easy to apply and remove, so you can change up your look as often as you’d like.

In this blog post, we will show you three different ways to layer your wall decals for a more polished and put-together appearance. Let's get started!

How Do Wall Decals Work?

Wall decals are essentially large stickers that you can apply to your walls. They come in a wide variety of designs, colors and sizes, so you can find something to match your style. They are perfect if you want to style your standard or even dress up your textured style walls

One of the great things about wall decals is that they are very versatile. You can use them to create a subtle statement or go all out with an over-the-top design. Since they are so easy to apply and remove, you can change up your look as often as you’d like without damaging your walls.

Abstract Wall Decals, Meet Die-Cuts

Abstract wall decals are decals that are not representative of any specific object or scene. They can be a variety of shapes and sizes and often feature bold, eye-catching colors. They are perfect for adding a touch of glamour or whimsy to your space.

To create a sophisticated layered look with abstract wall decals, start by pairing an abstract pack with a die-cut.

Die-cuts are cutouts of specific shapes, often with a decorative edge. They can be used to create a pattern or to highlight a specific area on your wall. Plus, imagine having the perfect color and metallic palette to find the ideal shade to bring your entire ensemble together. With a die-cut wall decal, you have the option to choose any color and design, from subtle to stand-out.

To use die-cuts in a layered look, place them in strategic positions around an abstract pack. This will create a more cohesive and polished look.  We recommend also choosing a die-cut that is complementary to the shape and color of your abstract wall decals.

Here are a few examples to get you inspired:

Pair our top-selling Abstract Bohemian Palms with some of our Palm Leaves wall decals for a boho-chic, eclectic look. At first glance, the Abstract Bohemian Palms wall decals appear to be simply puffs of soft floral decoration. However upon closer inspection, one will find that each design is unique because it can stand alone or work in harmony with other decals.

Palm Leaves Wall Decals

For this look, we recommend using the Palm Leaves wall decal in a cluster or line formation to create some movement on your wall. You can also experiment with different colors and sizes to create a one-of-a-kind look that is uniquely you.
