Wall Art | New York Skyline

It was time to do something with one of the walls in Ross's room. At one stage the two little ones had coloured on the wall behind his bed; armed with markers in their tiny hands they'd obviously decided to get creative on that white blank space. Also the picture frames I'd hung in the same spot fell off anytime we lifted up the bed base to get at the under bed storage. I needed a solution and decided to either repaint or put up some really cool inspiring art or photo frames that didn't fall off when we lifted up the bed!

So David came up with a suggestion... Put up a massive sticker of the New York skyline, with inspiring quotes written on the buildings and pictures of Ross and his brothers hidden among the sky scrapers.

As amazing as it sounded I wasn't sure... I didn't want to take away from the tranquil feel in his bedroom. But sure yeah, let's try it.

It was delivered last week in a big cardboard tube and as soon as we unrolled it I knew that David's idea was going to be perfect and look brilliant in the space...

We laid it on the bed and peeled down the backing paper across the top by about 5 inches.

Then we each took a side and stuck it to the top of the wall, pressing it down and across from the centre to remove any air pockets.

After that, all we needed to do was slowly peel off the rest of the backing paper while smoothing the image out along the way from the centre.

And once it was stuck on we trimmed two of the edges where it overlapped with a scalpel to give a neat edge.

It's up, it looks really cool, and Ross absolutely loves it. 

But I will say if I do another blog post about wall art for bedrooms I might insist on a tranquil beach scene with absolutely no 'kiddie' free running whatsoever - but that's just me!


  1. Materials that we use to decorate the interior of the wall of our home, office or other buildings are called wallpaper. Nowadays the most popular name in wallpaper industries is muriva. We have a huge collection of muriva wallpapers with beautiful color and design.

  2. Yes this New York sticker is looking very nice according to the room’s interior and keeping in mind the age of the child as well.
