One of my favorite ways to bring my art to the walls of the new Studio was with our wall decals. Inspired by my motto, “Life is short…Celebrate Everything!,” I wanted to create original artwork that highlights everything that makes each day worth celebrating, and use it in ways that make it easy to add fun and personality to a space. The result is the Darcy Miller x Chasing Paper Collection of wallpaper and decorative decals, which we use all over our new Studio, and if you want to bring it into your space, you can buy it right here. I hope this collection makes you smile, and inspires you to fill your home—and your friends’ lives!—with little surprises, fun gifts, and a lot of celebrating.

Celebrate Everything Wallpaper

This wallpaper has an elegant gray background that’s neutral enough to live with every day, but its pattern is full of little surprises, from lucky horseshoes to my signature bird carrying a flower. Try to spot something new every day! You might use it to

Wallpaper an entire room

Cover one accent wall, like the one behind your desk

Line drawers or inside a bookcase/shelves so that the lucky ladybugs peek out

Line the bottom of a tray

Darcy Miller Chasing PaperThe gray color of my wallpaper is the perfect backdrop for all my metallic desk accessories.

New York City View Decal

Darcy Miller Designs, Darcy Miller, Studio Tour, Office DesignIf I could have an entire wall of windows, I would. Our New York City View Decal makes the Studio space feel like it has an extra window—one with Empire State Building views.

Overhead fixtures provide light in the Studio—but our Boutique Chandelier Decal adds style. (And “hanging” it up is as easy as sticking it to the wall.)

Frame Decals

I have gallery walls all over my home, and, now, my office too. So when I started making decals, I knew I wanted frames in the mix. I’m so excited about them because they make creating gallery walls so much easier they’re so easy to apply, you can swap out whatever is inside with a new piece of tape, and no nails or thumbtacks are required. You can use a single one, make a row out of them, or create a larger grouping. These are two separate decal sets. Choose Frame Set 1 or Frame Set 2 (or both!) and get decorating.

There are so many fun ways to use them…

Darcy Miller Chasing PaperIn a Kid’s Room

They’re simple to hang and switch up, so kids can redecorate any time they want. Items they may want to hang inside their Frame Decals include:

Photos, of course!

Original artwork—like Picasso said, every child is an artist!

Prize ribbons, certificates, awards, diplomas

Mottos, sayings, notes, souvenirs

3-D mementos like party hats or programs

Darcy Miller Chasing PaperIn a Nursery

As a mother of three, I’m here to tell you—it’s the personal details that turn a room into a nursery. Since it’s so simple to swap out what’s inside a Frame Decal, your display can grow along with your little one. Consider:


Birth announcements


Baby footprints

Booties, hats, bibs—it’s all so tiny and cute!

The ID bracelet from the hospital

A drawing from an older sibling

A favorite toy. (If hanging something bulky, you will want to reinforce it.)

Photos, photos, photos!

Darcy Miller Chasing PaperIn a Bedroom or Living Room

Add your personality to your space. In your Frame Decals, consider “framing”:

Concert tickets or save-the-dates—of events you are excited to go to, or those you remember fondly.

Photos, postcards, and sayings that inspire you.

Decorative objects like this paper flower

Anything you like using and looking at, like these pink headphones, or a set of keys by your door (Add a nail or hook.)

Darcy Miller Chasing PaperAt Weddings and Celebrations

Parties are about celebrating people. Use these Frame Decals to make any event more personal

Showcase family photos at a wedding

Display photos throughout the years at a birthday, graduation, baby shower, or engagement party

Make a “who’s who” of attendees at a reunion, conference, or new students’ gathering

The best part is that you can recreate the gallery at home after the party.
