We want home furnishings with character! White, bare walls can sometimes be a little boring and common place, so something like a wall tattoo or mural could be exactly what you need to break the monotony of some modern designs; and this is exactly what we have in store for you today!

Even if you aren't the biggest art fan out there, you can’t fail to admit that this wall painting offers us something special. Through the artistic generated 3-D effect, it actually seems as if a piece of the wallpaper is actually falling down, revealing a fantasy living space. This design would look right at home in a café, bar or commercial setting too.

Especially in children's rooms, colourful walls can be very popular. One advantage of a wall painting is: creativity knows no bounds and you can create something exceptional. A beautiful wall painting is not only an eye-catcher for the little ones, but it is something that one can still admire for years to come.

You tired of seeing a white door all the time? To this end, the experts at Creatisto have the ideal solution: self-adhesive door stickers! The films can even even stuck on by inexperienced hands, without blistering, and are also scratch and water resistant. In addition to colourful door stickers, you can also find, at Creatisto, adhesive films for the fridge or tiles.

Optical illusion wallpaper

Slightly more complicated than gluing is the attachment of a wallpaper. Nevertheless, wallpapers are still a very popular way to add colour and variety to a room. And doesn't this one look great? What a nice effect. 

Cityscape photographic wallpaper

A particularly individual type of wallpaper is photo wallpaper; with its immaculate print quality and option for sizes. Personal photos or pre-made designs are printed, in high quality, on wallpaper and thus become an extravagant, large-scale decoration of our walls. Our tip: these look great in offices and cellars, where adding life to the design is essential.
