Glorious wallpaper! Designed for children’s rooms but most definitely for adults to love too!
Hibou Home launched a collection of four wallpaper designs for children in October 2011 and by February 2012 had been featured in Livingetc, Real Homes, The English Home, The Telegraph and Junior magazines, with several more magazine titles following suit for their March issues. Liberty of London are stockists, and no doubt others are queuing to get these wallpapers on their shelves. Take a look to see what all the fuss is about…
Having been uninspired over the years by the twee designs and garish colour schemes commonly found on children’s wallpapers, Hibou Home set out to create chic, contemporary designs that don’t compromise on style just because they are for children’s walls. The wallpapers have bold designs and yet, on the girl’s prints in particular, the beautiful muted colour palette and use of silhouetted images gives them an understated charm. Hibou Home aimed for wallpapers that would bring children’s design up to date; designs that would sit perfectly in a beautiful home without jarring the senses of the adult occupants. If looks are anything to go by, they’ve well and truly succeeded.
If you have already used these in your child’s room I’d love to hear what you think and see a photo!
