Be boldDesigners love to play with size and scale, mixing prints and clashing colours. It can be scary to commit to bold wallpaper, but a child’s room or small cloakroom are great places to experiment with fun patterns in a less prominent space.
Playing with scale Two very distinct wallpapers were used in this child’s room to make a fabulous design statement. The House of Hackney design on the chimney breast certainly isn’t a dedicated kids’ wallpaper, but becomes appropriate when clashed with the cute orange Mr Fox design by Scion in the alcove. An orange doggie cushion on the chair takes the clash further and keep things cute. The pretty little girl clothes hanging on the suit rack provide another orange accent, making the clash feel even more confident. When mixing bold prints, focus on making the scale of the patterns in each one slightly ‘off’ to stop the effect feeling twee. Too small a print on this chimney breast, for example, could have made the whole thing over-busy. Want more kids room ideas? Find eclectic kids rooms here
