Creative window decals transform glass into a work of art | WindowArt

The beauty of frosted window decals is that they’re not just useful; they’re also works of art. Just look at the image above; these forest-inspired frosted window decals are absolutely gorgeous.

This particular tree design works beautifully here for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we love how the leafless trees, cut out against the frosted background, conjure up romantic images of a misty winter morning in the forest. This is an example of a design that is ideally suited to frosted window vinyl, partly because the colours closely mimic those you’d actually see if the scene was real; the dark silhouette of stark trees against a grey, wintery sky.

Secondly, forest-inspired window decals work especially well when combined with wood finishes. Here, the wooden door and wooden window frames complement the tree design perfectly. We love how the material depicted in the window decals – wood – has been incorporated ‘in the flesh’ elsewhere in the décor.

Incorporating plant and animal-inspired designs into your window decals is a creative way to honour and evoke the natural world in your home. Nature-inspired images can help put you in a more serene state of mind and lift your spirits by positive association.

These window decals are designed in ‘negative’ format. This means that the background of the tree design is frosted, while the trees themselves are transparent. Designing window decals in this way allows for a high level of privacy, as the majority of the glass surface is rendered opaque.

The level of privacy provided by these window decals is just right for these windows, as it blocks the view of curious passersby just enough that the residents don’t feel vulnerable or as though they’re exposed to every glance. Because the windows flank the front door and look into the entrance hall, however, the area doesn’t require as much privacy as, say, a bathroom or bedroom would. For this reason, it’s absolutely no problem that the trunks of the trees are not opaque.
