Decorating a children’s bedroom is lots of fun. And what better way to put the finishing touch on your decorating scheme than with a gorgeous children’s wallpaper? Bright and playful wallpaper prints will inject some fun into a toddler’s room, but there are plenty of less childish (but not too grown-up) wallpaper designs out there that will appeal to older kids, and even see them through to teenage years. From cute children’s characters in beautiful backdrops to clever designs that actually inform and teach your kids, we’ve found our favourite kids’ wallpapers that we know you and your little ones will love.
This richly detailed cherry-tree design has a cute, folksy feel, with birds, bird boxes and butterflies tucked among the branches. The trees themselves have a whispy, hand-drawn aesthetic, and the three colourways – neutral, red and yellow – would work in a boy’s or girl’s bedroom. 10.05m x 53cm roll. Pattern repeat 70cm.
