One of the easiest (and most fun ways) to update a space, in my opinion, is by using decals. They can be placed on the wall and removed within minutes, and it’s a perfect solution to brighten up a corner, update a rental or to add a special something to a party!
There are so many companies out there that sell decals but one of my favorites is a company named Pop & Lolli. Pop & Lolli have a huge selection of fun fabric wall decals from the cutest raindrops to circus-themed. With every set of Pop & Lolli chic ‘experience-design’ decals you purchase, (it’s) Chic 2 Change will provide educational materials and resources to positively influence a South African child in need. How cool is that?
Fun Decor Tip: Place decals on the ceiling or closet! This will add an unexpected element in the room and make often ‘boring’ spots a little more fun! We think the Fun Fetti decals would be perfect for this!
We had the chance to ask Mia, the owner of Pop & Lolli, a few questions!
Born and raised proudly South African with an intuitive passion for color, design and dreaming BIG, I moved to Los Angeles to earn a very non-conventional Masters in Architecture. I then followed my dream and became a Walt Disney Imagineer. And after four years of dreaming much and imagining theme parks, my husband and I received the joyful news that we were expecting our very first munchkin.
And so the journey began…
Being a Mod Mom with a desire for GOOD design, highly appreciative of (multi)functional products, and a flair for laughter and fun, I was at a loss of what to do in my little girl’s very first room of her own! Scouting the world wide web for days in search of the ultimate nursery décor produced nothing awesome. Nothing extraordinary. Nothing fun. And nothing funky.
It was quite the predicament! Nothing fit this mom’s dream just right. Too small. Too blah. Too nothing. Too ordinary.
I believe in impact. And to make an impression, size can definitely help! I had walls – FOUR BIG ONES – staring at me. I just knew that to create the fabulous design experience I imagined, I needed funky and fun designs which was playful and cheery and COLO(U)RFUL – a design flexible to grow with her – and, of course, all encompassing design BIG enough to truly create an immersive environment. I like to call it my PICTURE POETRY. Experiencing design as an opportunity for expression and exploration – something every kid deserves.
So, I decided to take action and imagineer the ideal dream for experience-design: Pop & Lolli oversized fabric wall decals.
Do you have a favorite decal?
Definitely Noah’s African Circus – it’s what started it all.
What is something that people would be surprised to learn about Pop & Lolli?
The name Pop & Lolli is in honor of our little girl named Anabelle, since she was clearly the inspiration and reason behind it. Upon birth, Anabelle was lovingly nicknamed “Poppeliensie” by her South African grandfather. I realized that using that name directly might cause for some strange confusion & pronunciation within the States! It somehow developed from “Poppeliensie” to Pop & Lolli and it somehow just all finalized when I designed the logo and accidentally discovered that a lollipop just worked in the design of it.
Where do you hope to see Pop & Lolli in a few years?
Hust to continue to be blessed by what I do, every day, and still enjoying it as much as I currently do.
Will there be anything new we need to keep our eyes looking out for?
We have JUST launched 19 new decal designs, and in two weeks we are launching a NEW PRODUCT line – removable, green, eco-friendly, fabric WALLPAPER.
