Many of today’s most popular wall decals revel in natural motifs. Like these 3-D butterfly decals with wings that lift from the wall. Photorealistic and classic, these stickers are a nice contrast to the slew of  cartoon-like adhesives currently on the market. [from RoomMates]

There’s something strikingly simple about the Star Peel & Stick Mirrors from RoomMates. The items in this pack of 4 are so reflective, they can be used as actual mirrors. Note that the decals are very sturdy, so a heavier adhesive is used. In other words, these sticky stars work best when they are not re-positioned excessively.
