A children’s bedroom is the perfect excuse to get creative with a feature wall but if you’re struggling to find a wallpaper that isn’t too loud or garish and will fit the ideals of house proud parents, read on.
We’ve tracked down the chicest kids’ wall coverings that will stand the test of time, whether you fancy something bold and beautiful or subtle and soft, and will transform a room in no time.
Take tips from Lucy Clark of The Olive Design Studio who says, “Try paper on a feature wall in a neutral colourway like charcoal, and contrast it with painted walls in a similar shade. This helps keeps it more sophisticated, gender-neutral, and means the wallpaper will last for longer. It also means you can fill the plain walls with shelves, as storage is so essential in children’s rooms.” Also take notes from Camilla Hampton of Camilla Hampton Interiors who says, "a muted mural that won't overstimulate babies or children up to the age of two."
Lucy recommends a print like "One Hundred Acre Wood Map" – part of the Winnie the Pooh by Jane Churchill range – for a long-term option, “I’ve just installed it in my own nursery for the imminent arrival of my little girl. The fun part is, as the baby grows up and starts experimenting with artwork, they can colour the wallpaper in and it becomes a really interactive bedroom.” Camilla suggests Papers By Paperboy for small children, Susie Watsons' Denim Mis Floating for little girls and Barnaby Gates Honey Bees colour 02 (pink) or All Stars in colour 01 (grey) for older kids, while Nicole Salvesen of Salvesen Graham says, "We love Molly Mahon’s wallpapers - they really cross the boundaries from young child to teenager too which justifies the investment".
