When it comes to decorating kids rooms, designer children’s wallpaper is all the rage. If you have young children, chances are you’ll be spending almost as much time in their bedrooms as they are – reading stories, tidying up or wondering where on earth their pyjamas have got to. If so, you’ll be glad you put some thought into the decor!
Using a good quality wallpaper in a child’s bedroom may seem extravagant, but they tend to be better quality, less prone to damage and need to be replaced less frequently. We’ve put together our top ten suggestions for designer children’s wallpaper – and there’s some really lovely stuff out there. In fact, it might find its way into other rooms in the house as well – dinosaur cloakroom, anyone?!
