Honestly nothing has made us happier when it comes to interiors than the return of WALLPAPER! It's back and we are obsessed and have been for a few years now (remember our past posts?)...it just keeps getting better! If we could, every room would have at least one wall covered in gorgeous patterns. Nothing sets the tone of a room quite like wallpaper. It tells it's own story and gives a little insight into who the owner of the room is.
It can be dramatic, serene, silly, sexy, moody, fun and happy. Wallpaper is a one stop decor shop. No decorating required! Now if only it weren't SO pricy! SO for the sake of redoing our kids rooms in our imaginations today let's pretend its affordable to buy and hang. Here are our top wallpaper picks to make your kids rooms come to life
Oh Chasing Paper! We can get lost on your site for hours...literally hours. Daydreaming about what paper we could use where. And this "Wild Thing" by Sarah Watson we would be happy to have anywhere in our home...especially our kids rooms!
Ok, so it is not just that this Amber Interiors room is perfection...it is that arrow wallpaper by Cavern Home is perfect and makes the room even better! We have drooled over these cool arrows for a while now and are ready to put them in the kids bathroom or on one of their walls for a good accent..problem is how do we choose just one??
Dear Caitlyn McGauley, we are officially obsessed with your work and these 2 wallpapers sealed that deal! This leopard paper is begging to go somewhere in our kids rooms. If only we could do 3 walls with your perfect dots and one accent with the black leopard (then save a roll or 7 for our bedroom wall) all would be great! Perfection...just perfection.
Loving the moderness (is that a word) of these hand drawn clouds from Ferm living that are almost like lotus cloud shaped. They are sweet yet sharp and would look lovely in a nursery or on a ceiling in the kids room.
Ok seriously?! This INSANE Cheetah Vision paper from Illustrator Aimee Wilder comes in SO many colors we can not breathe. How crazy is it!?! Would love to put behind a great simple built in bookshelf or in a reading nook. Its so fun, modern and whimsical all in one.
You probably noticed that the safari/animal theme is heavy in our choices. That is not only because it is for a kids room, because we would DIE for any of those, but its a really classic yet modern theme that lasts forever and can easily be morphed into a different vibe depending on the decor. You may have also noticed only one cutesy one (clouds) but even that one has a modern sophistication. This is simply because kids get tired of things so quickly and grow up so fast. I had at least 3 different wallpapers when I was young and looking back they were all awful! Had my wonderful parents had more choices maybe I wouldn't have wanted Floral after my Holly Hobby one after my Strawberry Shortcake decision.
That said, wallpaper is SO PRICEY!!!!!! So we really love the new peel and stick ones to help rule out the professional hanging expenses. What ever you choose remember to have fun! Make it timeless and chic and you can't go wrong.
Which is your fave? Do you love wallpaper as much as we do??
