From new nurseries to big-kiddie rooms, a child’s bedroom is so much more than a place to rest little heads after a big day. It’s a space to play, explore, learn and hang with friends – and a place to spark imagination. And adding a splash of personality with wallpaper is such an easy way to make their haven a more personal corner of the home.
Bringing out a child’s personality in the spaces they play and rest means giving them a place that’s truly theirs. Somewhere they can be themselves, and find their place in the world. And whether your little one is enthralled by all things superhero or prefers a hint of magical enchantment, there’s a wallpaper to suit.
The UK’s leading wallpaper designer and manufacturer Graham & Brown has released a sublime range of wallpapers in Australia featuring characters from the world of Disney and Marvel. To complement the range, there are also designs featuring unicorns, butterflies, forest animals, graffiti and neon. There’s something for every age and stage of childhood.
“While a bedroom should inspire calm and reflection to assist in a good night’s sleep, when it comes to children’s bedrooms, there has to be an element of fun thrown in,” says Paula Taylor, Colour and Trends Specialist at Graham & Brown.
“Enlivening the space with colourful and interactive design can really work to enhance a child’s curiosity, sparking individual creativity to explore the world around them.”
The beauty of wallpaper is that as your child grows and their tastes and interests change, there’s a print to suit them.
