The cutest kids wallpaper

September 17, 2014

"childrens themed wallpaper""childrens themed wallpaper jungle""childrens themed wallpaper town"

If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of wallpaper.  So when I came across this new adorable range designed by Swedish artist Ingela Arrenhius, it was love.  I’m already a big fan of Ingela’s colourful and cute illustrations which are available as kids posters but now you can have a whole wall full of her sweet art.

True to Ingela’s style, these wallpapers are playful with a fun retro vibe.  All the wallpapers (and there are many designs) come in 2 colourways with each one designed to tell a story – from life in a town to life in a jungle and even life in space!  My favourite is the picture frames wallpaper which I’m loving for a vintage inspired kids room.  The beautiful styling is by Mokkasin and the wallpapers are available from Photowall.

"animal print wallpaper for kids"Today my wallpaper obsession is being fueled by these adorable modern designs by interior designers Sissy & Marley for Jill Malek.  These chic patterns come mostly in metallic silver or gold and the prints are small and subtle enough so even though they work really well in a nursery, they’d also work in an older child’s room.  Which is a relief as there is no DIY job worse than stripping wallpaper!  My favourite is the giraffes one but I can’t decide if I like the silver or gold better.  What’s your favourite?

Have a delightful weekend and see you on Monday.

"red white and blue kids wallpaper"Last week I received an email about a new wallpaper collection curated by Elisabeth Dunker in collaboration with Photowall.  I’m already a big fan of Elisabeth Dunkers work and her shop Fine Little Day so I knew it was going to be a goodie before I even opened the email.   I wasn’t disappointed. "black and white kids wallpaper"The collection consists of 5 wallpapers designed by various artists and curated by Elisabeth.  While all 5 designs are striking, my favourites are the 2 pictured here.  The first is called ‘Wooden Village’ and the second is ‘Mogu’.  I love the simple colours and the fun illustrations on both making them perfect for a kiddies room.  You can see the rest of the collection at Photowall.

"world map wallpaper kids rooms"One of my biggest personal ambitions is to see as much of the world as I can and to share this experience with my husband and daughter.  I love discovering new cultures, cuisines and places that can seem so different yet familiar at the same time.  It fascinates me that the world is getting smaller and nearly everywhere is so accessible these days.  My husband and I have a list of places we ‘need’ to visit and are working our way through these whenever we can.  Top of our list for a long while had been Argentina and Uruguay and we eventually got there this January.  It was a thrill!  New list topper is China and we hope to make it there sometime in the next year or two.  We do spend far too much time dreaming about all the places we could see right away if we won the lottery… but then again, everyone’s got to have dreams! "map art in kids rooms"We would love our 4 year old daughter to grow up with a curiosity about our small world, about different yet similar cultures, about food and new experiences.  To encourage her we bought her a globe for her room and play silly, made-up travel games centered around where she lives, where her extended family live and where she’s going on holiday.  Now I’m considering re-doing her room and I’m thinking of complementing the globe with a map of the world on the wall.  She can then pin pictures, souvenirs, postcards or whatever she likes and really make it her personal map.  But I also think maps make lovely wall art and are as great as any other art for any room in the home.  "maps in kids rooms"So I  went on the hunt for some kids rooms with maps and the above are what I found.  The choices are many ranging from vintage to modern and single countries to the entire world.  They can be as colourful and artistic or as traditional and accurate as you like.  I’m also loving the idea of having a globe light.  Maps are great for encouraging a child to want to know more about our world or their country but they are fabulous wall candy too.

"pink and grey kids room ideas"I’m always dreaming of re-decorating every room in the house.  Today I’m loving pink and grey for my daughters room.  Grey isn’t the most obvious choice for a kids room but with a dash of pink I think it works so well.  Personally, I’d even go for just grey with lots of white but today I wanted to add a bit of pink to the mix.  This kind of colour scheme and decor also really appeals to my minimalist side.  When i started putting this board together I knew I would like the end result but I didn’t realise quite how much this colour scheme would appeal to me.  Hope you like it too…

"black and white wallpaper"If you read my post on Ferm Livings latest collection, you will know that I am obsessing over the whole black and white Scandinavian interiors look.  I so badly want to create my own version of this look in my living room but can’t for practical reasons.  My only hope is moving house but it seems a bit excessive to move just because I want to re-decorate the living room!  So while I wait I’ve been dreaming of how I would decorate, and this black and white wallpaper by Fine Little Day is one of my favourites.  In my next home I know I’ve got to have this somewhere.  The same print also comes as a baby blanket and a cushion cover both of which I love too.  I went looking around the web to see rooms where this blanket, wallpaper or cushion has been used and these were some of my favourite black and white rooms:

"black and white nursery""black and white kids room""black and white scandinavian decor"Isn’t this wallpaper so striking?  It just brings all these rooms to life.  I love the nursery at the top which is nearly all white but has that stunning feature wall.  I also love the last picture where this wallpaper has been used to frame a door.  And the 2 pictures in the middle show the blanket and cushion which are so chic.  Have a happy weekend!

{Kids} wallpaper lust…

October 23, 2012

"kids circus wallpaper"

I love wallpaper.  Nearly every room in my home has some wallpaper either on the walls or I even use it to cover tables, chairs  and various other bits and pieces.  I often have this recurring dream where I move to a massive house and I have all these new blank walls to play with… such a sweet dream!  When it comes to kids wallpaper, I’m not always as keen because a lot of it can be too cutesy and colours can be bit too blah (think teddy bears prancing around in washed out shades).  But when I discovered Loboloup, ‘cutesy’ was a word that couldn’t have been further from my mind.  This circus themed wallpaper was the first one I saw and I loved the simple line style illustrations as well as the subtle colours brought to life with pops of bright orange.

Loboloup is a New York based boutique started by an aunt and niece team earlier this year.  So far, they only make a handful of modern kids wallpapers and a few matching cushions but what they do create is pretty cool like this ‘what’s your type’ wallpaper.  I love the deep blue colour and even though the design is busy it works because they’ve used different shades of just one colour.  And while modern in style, it still looks great with that vintage horse.  I found these papers at Wall-Library who have the entire range and also have some other fabulous designs (check out the Aimee Wilder collection).

"blue kids room decor"

When I’m feeling blue… all I have to do is take a look at you.

I’m longing for blue skies.  If you live in London or anywhere in England you’ll know what I mean.  If not, you’re probably enjoying blue skies already… lucky you!  While I wait I thought I’d cheer us all up with some wonderful blue goodies:

1.  “La Casita” cloud pillow with raindrop stickers…  2.   Baby alpaca wool clothes for boy or girl…  3.  Stars, stripes and solid indigo blue cushions for a nursery…  4.  Blue snow-capped mountains wallpaper designed and drawn by an 8 year old…  5.  A foxy soft toy* made of re-cycled denim which I discovered while reading Milk Mag…  6.  A happy balloon with a your personal message inside for any occasion.

"black & white wallpaper kids"

I’m a complete wallpaper addict.  Nearly every room in my home has wallpaper and I’m always looking for more for those rooms that don’t have any.  So when I saw this hip wallpaper by Dutch Onszelf, I couldn’t wait to feature it.  If you’re looking for a cool nursery or kiddy room then you can’t go wrong with this stuff.  In addition to the wallpaper, Onszelf also make large wall stickers that are so unlike any other wall stickers I’ve seen.  I’m loving the bambi range which would look super cool and trendy when stuck on one of their complimentary wallpapers.

"trendy wallpaper for kids"

I’m especially lusting after their black & white range but if colour is more your thing, they have some bright ones too.  The turquoise and red animal silhouettes one pictured above is one of my favourites as is the deer silhouette one in bright reds and yellows.  But there are lots more to choose from.

"gold wallpaper"

Last, but not least are these gold wallpapers that are just divine.  They’d work in an adult space or a kiddy space which makes them extra special for me.  The pure gold one is something I’ve had my eye on for a while… it’s so rich and beautiful.  To check out all these wallpapers and to find stockists head to Onszelf… and if your Dutch isn’t quite up to speed, you may need a little help from google translate.

An enchanting forest

March 23, 2012

"forest scene wallpaper kids"Ever since I spotted this wallpaper in Milk Magazine, I have been besotted with it.  The dark, enchanting forest theme is so striking, so bold, so impactful.  This ‘Foret Noire’ wallpaper is by Nathalie Lete, a Parisian artist whose creations are inspired by her travels, vintage toys and old engravings of animals an flowers.  Nathalie creates kids books, toys, ceramics and also one off pieces all of which are colourful, poetic and sometimes almost bordering on strange but always in a very creative way.  This forest wallpaper would make a magnificent feature wall in a kids room but I think it would look very cool in a nursery too. 

And as for the lovely vintage inspired kids Tica chair in the picture, I found it over a Laurette Deco and I fell for it.  I thought the red works so well against the black wallpaper and the style of chair compliments the wallpaper too so I wanted to feature it.  To buy this wallpaper which also comes in a pale green, head to Lapin & Me.  

While I’m talking wallpapers, have a look at the Pip Early Bird Wallpaper… it’s one of my favourites!
