In 1992 the MoMA Design Store introduced the Sky Umbrella by legendary graphic designer Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson. A simple idea brilliantly executed, the umbrella’s exterior gives away nothing more than a plain, black canopy and a simple wooden handle.
Once opened, the umbrella’s interior reveals a cheerful blue sky dotted with fluffy, white clouds.
Do you want excitement and drama in your home, but are afraid of commitment? Do you live in an apartment or rental and have a landlord who doesn’t want you to change anything? You still want your home to reflect your personality. Now is the time to get creative. DIY wall decals are the perfect starting place for your decorating plan. Check out the wide variety of decals available. They are easy to apply and can be removed without causing damage. DIY wall decals can be installed on any clean, dry surface. Once installed, they can handle a little moisture and work well in kitchens and bathrooms.
Something as simple as painting one wall a bright or dramatic color and then adding a single color decal with vines or flowers, can give a bedroom an elegant flair. DIY wall decals can provide drama or whimsy to any room. A design on your shower door or bathroom mirror will give your bathroom a custom-made look. You can use quirky designs or mottos to give your kitchen or dining room a bistro look. Mix the decals with framed art or photographs for a three dimensional effect.
Change the point of focus in your walls. Decorate room walls around a flat screen TV to make it look like a work of art. Use elegant filigree as part of a headboard design. You can create your own work of art for above the couch. The decals put on furniture or wander across a bookcase.
DIY wall decals are affordable and movable. They allow you to use your imagination to create a world of your own. Create a background for photographs, on the wall and on a table. Frame your desk with inspiring words. Start with one or two DIY wall decals and see where they lead you.

Not entirely LEGO, this great reproduction from Canadian maker Ryan Alexander does play actual vinyl and performs well enough to show the proof of concept.
