My Wonderful Walls Gets Featured at Hotel del Coronado 1
While many families purchase our products for use in their homes, occasionally we have the opportunity to have our products be a part of something even bigger. Our Under the Sea Wall Stickers recently took a swim over to the sunny California coast where they took up residence on the walls of the very well-known and family-oriented Hotel del Coronado in stunning Coronado, California.
As stated on their website and Facebook page, “The unique Blue Octopus Family Suites - located on the ground floor of the Victorian Building - feature a master king bedroom, living area and an ocean-inspired kids bedroom. The fun furniture includes bunk beds (single on top, double on bottom with a trundle), beanbag chairs, a toy chest filled with items from The Del's Blue Octopus toy store, and video games.
We embarked on this renovation armed with guest feedback, and tasked our design team to come up with a style that blends the historic architecture of our Victorian building (which looks nearly the same as it did when the resort first opened in 1888) with modern comforts. Breezy fabrics, subtle seaside accents, and a soothing color palette reflect the natural beauty of Coronado Island. It’s not easy to capture the ambiance through a photo, so we hope to get a chance to show you our new guestrooms in person and you can see how The Del is still a place where you can step back in time while also enjoying the best of today.”
Their Facebook page shows a beautiful picture highlighting the completed room; needless to say, we are thrilled with their finished product! Their paint choice and décor matches perfectly with our Under the Sea Wall Stickers, and the location of the hotel itself could not be any more perfect for a sea-themed room.
We especially like how they maintained a classic adult look in the main living area of the suite, while the view from the main space into the kids’ area promises fun and adventure aplenty. As if you needed any other reason to visit the Sunshine Coast! With beautiful views and a plethora of family-oriented activities to keep anyone busy, Coronado is definitely worth putting on the family vacation radar, especially now that it boasts rooms with such, well, WONDERFUL décor!
We are so excited and honored to have been featured in this beautiful hotel, and hope that they continue getting rave reviews in the weeks and months to come like these posted recently on their Facebook page :
“I think the combination of the Victorian architecture blended with the clean, modern, neutral interior palette works wonderfully. Bravo to you! Beautiful.”
“I think it looks great:) I love the Del and all the fun times my family and I have had there!”
“I've had the pleasure of staying at The Del a total of at least 30 nights over the years, I think the new rooms look fantastic!”
“Love it!! We have stayed at the beach village before (2 rooms) because of kids...I LOVE the octopus room!”
MWW Partners Up with Mommy Bloggers 4
As many of you know, My Wonderful Walls is strictly an online company, so advertising can often be quite difficult. However, recently there have been many terrific women giving a shout-out to My Wonderful Walls on their blogs and websites.
The staff at My Wonderful Walls would like to take a moment to thank some of these terrific ladies who we think are blog-tastic!! We would also like to invite others to give this a try as well – don’t worry you will be rewarded, with My Wonderful Walls products of course!!
If you are familiar with My Wonderful Walls, you know we create wall stickers, wall mural stencils and canvas wall art to help decorate your home in a simple, but elegant fashion. While most of our products focus on children, their bedrooms, nurseries, playrooms, classroom, bathrooms, and more, we have found - through our Mommy-Blogger partners - that these products can be used anywhere throughout your home.
In fact, one of our blog reviewers discovered our big oak tree made the perfect addition to her family room over the couch. Check out her site, and what she created with the help of My Wonderful Walls, at That Wife.
Here’s How It Works –
That blog-tastic mama and several others have contacted us (or we have contacted them) about reviewing our products on their blogs. We offer them a product to decorate their home, and in return they blog about it, post pictures, and often they even give one of their followers a chance to win a product themselves from My Wonderful Walls – it is as fun and simple as that!!
What’s even more fun is that we often feature customers on our website that have sent in photos on how they used their wall sticker kits or wall mural stencil kits. It is a great way to showcase the creative ways that people are using our products and it makes us smile every time we see something we have made bless another family.
It’s Not Just For Mamas
As you’ve probably noticed, the reviewers we spotlighted were all women. However, if you are one proud blogging daddy and would like to review My Wonderful Walls on your blog, please let us know!! We want to invite all bloggers* to become a part of this terrific opportunity. Thank you so much to all our bloggers – past, present and future!

Our Wall Murals on Your Kids’ Walls - Very Rewarding 0
Customer Feedback and Photo Day
First of all let’s just say that I love my job. I am in charge of advertising, social networking and customer service (among other things). I am quite social by nature and like to write, so this job fits like a glove. I enjoy chatting with customers and helping them create spectacular rooms for their children. I take pleasure in reading and writing for blogs. I find Facebook and Twitter fascinating. Etc…
One of my very favorite days is “Customer Feedback and Photo Day”. Once a month I email our new customers with a request for feedback and photos of their kids’s rooms (with our wall stickers, wall stencils or canvas art for kids. Usually within minutes I am showered with lovely words and all sorts of great pictures of our customers’ newly decorated rooms. And 99% of the feedback we receive is intensely positive. Considering that we have grown this business from ground up, positive feedback is truly music to our ears. I get that warm, squishy feeling when I read comments from happy customers. Here are a few of the latest remarks:
- “My experience with My Wonderful Walls was amazing. It was very easy to complete the design. I am no expert in painting (or any art for that matter) but my end result was absolutely fabulous.”
- “This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! We loved our product! We will definitely order again for any wall accessory needs.”
- “The room turned out fantastic! Everyone has commented on it and loves it!“I was surprised when I read in your e-mail that you are a small organization only a few years old. Everything was handled very professionally and the products were top quality. We are thrilled with our baby’s room and thank you for providing this option. I have already passed your website on to several friends.”
- I love love love my pictures I ordered! They were so easy to order and they came very quickly. The best part was being able to change the colors to match the bedding. I will definitely be ordering more pictures in the future. Thanks!
- “I was very impressed with the level of customer service. Y’all were great, great, great to work with.”
And I absolutely adore looking at customer pictures. To me, it is better than chocolate…more satisfying than French fries (my favorite food). It feels like ‘report card day’, and our card reads all As! Many of our customers are first-time parents, so the amount of care and thought they’ve put into their nursery décor shines through in the photos. I love to look at all the little details they’ve included in their child’s room, from the wall art to the bedding, it is all typically perfectly coordinated and gorgeous. I particularly like seeing how our customers take our wall designs and made them their own. Very fun indeed!
So, thanks to all of you who share your pictures and give us feedback. We are much obliged!
