Wall Stickz beautifies interiors with more than 200 cut-to-order vinyl wall decals, crafted from high-quality Oracal vinyl in 16 vibrant hues, which adhere smoothly to any clean, dry surface for a faux painted finish. “Live Laugh Love” ($15.95) and other inspirational quotes scroll winsomely along staircases, and lifeless junk rooms animate with dramatic vignettes of the New York skyline ($17.95), an angry grizzly bear ($9.95), or a cloud of multisized bubbles ($19.95). Six-packs of reusable chalkboard African animals ($19.95) cavort between cornices and dutifully record wipe-away reminders such as “I love you” and “Buy more rhino chow.” While Wall Stickz’s decals are designed to hug surfaces indefinitely, they disengage easily, sparing dry-wall dermises from expensive and painful tattoo removal.

Located in 19 cities nationwide, Wine and Canvas commissions accomplished artists to spread the joy of painting during informal painting classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines available for purchase. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
