Decal Décor

Star fullback for USA Rugby, Francois Viljoen, just told me about a new business his South African-born wife Mia launched earlier this month.

It seems Mia, a former Walt Disney Imagineer and stickler for good design, was struggling to find exciting ways to decorate her new daughter’s nursery. Most of what she found on the internet was bland and uninspiring.

Instead of settling, she set out to create her own line of colorful, well-designed wall décor. The result is her brand new venture, Pop & Lolli, which specializes in making “chic, oversized fabric stickers” that cover entire walls. It’s what she calls “experience design.”

The business has a sustainability angle: for every set of decals you purchase, (it’s) Chic 2 Change, the charity arm of Pop & Lolli, will provide educational materials and support to a South African child in need. I wish her luck.

If you’re a design junky who’s looking for a unique way to add flavor to a child’s room, you’re sure to find something fun and funky at Pop & Lolli.
