Happy new year, RoomMates fans! 2012 was a great year for us, and we have high hopes for 2013, too. We’ve got so much in the works that it’ll be tough to squeeze it all into one post—and a lot that we can’t even talk about yet!—but I wanted to give you all a few sneak peeks of what’s coming up soon. Here are just a few of the new designs you’ll be seeing early this year...
We’ll continue introducing fun and creative wall decals for kids, including creations from popular designers (as part of our Featured Collections series) and products that compliment your existing favorites. The adorable giraffe growth chart you see above uses the same art as our popular Jungle Adventure wall decals and border.
We’re also planning to add some of your favorite kids designs to our custom wall decal studio, meaning it will be even easier to create a room decal for your child that complements their existing decor.
Let’s move on to popular characters! 2013 promises to be a huge year for movies, with releases like Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, Disney-Pixar’s Planes, and Monsters University on the horizon. We’ll have decals for all of these films, and for many of your other favorites. Above you’ll see an upcoming set of wall stickers for Angry Birds Star Wars...
... and here’s a brand new design for Finding Nemo. Aren’t these porthole decals cute? They’d look great in a child’s bathroom, or in a Nemo-themed bedroom.
We’ll also introducing cool new graphics for comic book and superhero fans, like these decals for the Justice League. Some new Spider-Man and Superman designs are in the works, and we’re also on track to introduce your favorite superheros in our custom studio early this year.
We have never shied away from experimenting with our products, and we expect this year to be full of innovation and new ideas for wall decor. One of the most important things you’ll see from us in 2013 is the expansion of our line of magic hooks. We’re preparing a ton of new styles and shapes for this collection, including colorful dots, eye-catching chevron squares, and even a few touches of glitter.
If you’ve never used a magic hook before, you’ll want to keep your eyes open for these! Like our wall decals, RoomMates hooks are removable, repositionable, and reusable—but the real magic is in the fact that they’re washable! If your magic hook stops sticking, just rinse the backing with cool water, air dry, and re-apply. They’ll keep working no matter how many times you move or wash them.
Magic hooks hold up to five pounds when properly applied to a smooth, flat surface like a painted wall, door, or desk. We’ve had some success with heavier items, but we recommend keeping your hook limited to small things like keys, scarves, kitchen accessories, or small bags. Stay tuned for more information on these nifty little hooks!
Finally, here’s one last bit of innovation. We’re experimenting with the expansion of our peel & stick clock range, too. The image you see above is something we have planned to elegantly combine a sleek silver clock with decorative words and numbers. Since the clock can be mounted with a small nail or even a thumbtack, this is a great way to add a clock to dorms or apartments, where drilling a hole or mounting something large isn’t an option.
That wraps up our sneak previews for 2013! What do you think of these upcoming releases? Do you spot any new favorites, or see something we’re missing? Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts. We’d love to get your feedback and hear your ideas!
