Puxxle: Pixel Puzzle Decals for Your Wall
Design, quirk, and geekery, these are a few of our favorite things… We’ve come across a lot of cool ways to deck out wall decor in our day, but Puxxle is particularly drool-worthy. It combines our love for pixelated products with our love for artsy things to put up on our walls.
The images are built using 2x2cm vinyl adhesive pieces which are stuck directly on the wall. Peel and stick: it’s that easy! And Puxxle isn’t limited to walls… you can stick it to mirrors, windows, plastic, and metal. You can even put them outside; the high quality vinyl should last 3-4 years.
They’ve got a little something for everyone. We’re crushing on their “Tribute” collection, dedicated to people worth admiring. With real-life heroes decked out in their pixelated finest, Puxxle can lend some inspiration to the walls. For the artist, how about painting with Frida Kahlo? If you’re looking for wisdom, maybe Einstein can rub off on you. If you’re into horror, you can try watching TV or writing scripts with Alfred Hitchcock. And when you’re looking to get surreal, Salvador Dali can do the trick.
Because they’re made of small, individual squares, you can totally make your own design if none of the ones on the website suit you or your space perfectly. And if you get sick of it? Puxxle says that the decals are easily removable and shouldn’t damage your walls.
Did we mention some of the decals glow in the dark? Yes, this does just bring our design crush to the next level… We love us some glow-in-the-dark goodness ;)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
