On Trend: Arrows in Home Decor

by Raelene

Arrows.  We're seeing them everywhere these days - on walls, on pillows, on prints, on furniture.  And they're made of almost anything - pallets and Popsicle sticks and paint (just to name a few).  They're adorable in a nursery and fashionably modern/rustic in grown up living spaces.  I'm totally crushing on 'em.

Here's a quick round up of easy (and a few slightly more complicated) ways to incorporate this fun, whimsical trend in your own home decor.

1. A whimsical arrow wall decal from makes a big impact, but is still affordable and easy to apply.

Use a single set above a crib, changing table, console table, or desk as an accent, or for maximum impact, use multiple sets to cover an entire wall.

2. Bring on the texture and up the impact in the nursery by using this sweet arrow baby bedding (in mint, navy, or coral) from Caden Lane.

Or, for the grown-ups (and mostly grown-ups), this duvet cover from Urban Outfitters will do the trick.

3. For a more subtle look, try a print like this one from LaLuna Designs on Etsy.
Arrow Print, Arrow Wall Art, Arrows Nursery Art, Arrow Art, Arrow Decor, Nursery Decor

Or this arrow print from

4. Soft, cuddly, and lots of great impact, this quilt from Cluck Cluck Sew would be perfect. It's an adorable way to add a little arrow love to any room - just switch up the fabrics. (Confession: this project has been on my to-do list coming on three years now. Sigh)

Speaking of fabric - check out these arrow print fabrics from the Fat Quarter Shop here, here, and here.  Coral - check. Aqaure - check.  Even a little vintage vibe - check.  I see window panels, pillow covers, even a little skirt?  Oh, the possibilities.

5. And sure, it's rather easy to add arrows to kids' rooms - but check out this stylish arrow jewelry holder by Lemonade Makin' Mama.  Best part?  It's a $10 project.  Woot.

6. Speaking of projects, why not make your own wooden arrows?  See what I mean - totally stylish and yet the perfect blend of modern and rustic here in Amanda's living room.  Love.

7. Or, add a little arrow love with a vinyl decal from  We've got so many to choose from.  My favorite?  This arrow-inspired vinyl decal, hands down.  It's got that modern/rustic feel going for it in spades (see what I did there?) I'd put it in an entryway.  Or over a console table.  Or, well, almost anywhere, really.

And there you have it. Seven relatively easy ways to add a little arrow whimsy to your home.  Happy hunting! (ha! Did it again).
