WALLS WITH EMOTION: Living Wall Creations + your imagination = rooms with character

BY CANDRA NEILSON - AUGUST 8, 2014

Over the past year or so, wall decals - also known as wall stickers, wall tattoos, or wall vinyls, have become an absolute craze in interior décor! Unlike many other fads, these actually breathe life and personality to what could otherwise be an open, boring and lifeless space.

The advantage of wall decals is that while they can suit your individual purposes and once you grow tired of them, they can also be easily peeled off from the wall.

Last December, I also fell into decal craze soon noticed that every second company or retailer was selling them. However, finding an appropriate one for my mom turned out to be one of the most arduous hunts that I have ever undertaken. I just could not find one with a personalised message that I wanted to convey to her – that was before I discovered Living Wall Creations.

I learnt that the company, which is a subsidiary of EZ Signs and owned and managed by Lisa Duncan, has been around for about eight months now. What makes them peculiar on the decal market is that they actually specialise in creating wall vinyls. You give them your unique brief and they bring it to life for you – now you no longer need to buy mass-produced decals that probably already appear in a thousand other homes.

However, while I had an idea of the message that I wanted on my mom’s decal, I had no clue about fonts, layout and colours. I simply emailed Lisa my message and she returned a couple of beautiful designs from which I was able to select the one I wanted. Lisa is not only creative but understands how to capture her customers’ imagination.

About a week later, I got a call to tell me that my vinyl was ready for collection. I was very impressed when I got to Living Wall Creations. My decal had also been neatly packaged in a sealed plastic tube to ensure its safe keeping. Before I left, Lisa politely explained onto which surfaces vinyls can be applied and how to apply the decal once I arrived at home.

Living Wall Creations uses high-quality materials and if applied correctly can last for years. The price was right and the service was excellent. Production usually takes one or two days (excluding weekends) and postage can take between three and five days.

To get hold of Lisa, please call 041 581 0256 or 082 770 5977 or Llewellyn on 079 507 6610 or email [email protected]. She is finalising her new website, www.livingwallcreations.co.za but you can see some of their work on their Facebook page! Make this Mother’s Day special with a personalised decal!
