Tile Stickers and Decals – Quoadrostyle
Quadrostyle was founded by Gabrielle Morabia who was looking for a way to deal with unsightly tiles in her newly purchased 200 year old townhouse in Provence.

Tile Stickers, Decals and Tattoos are Easy Peasy
Tile stickers and tile tattoos are an easy remodeling alternative that require little time, skill, effort or budget. They can be used in a couple blocks as an accent or on an entire ceramic, glass, or stone tile wall to transform the room. Easy on, easy off and waterproof, tile stickers are a renter’s best friend. Chances are, your landlord would frown upon you tearing out the kitchen tile backsplash, and since most rentals are decorated in neutral solid colors to appeal to a wide range of people, rental spaces are perfect for tile decal decorating. Or, you and/or others in your household may just want to maximize your design bang-for-the-buck while minimizing hassle. Tile stickers make a great alternative to re-tiling, just don’t go for the giant naval ship or pin-up girl tattoo, OK?
