With only four weeks to go till I pop with ‘baby 2’ the nesting overdrive continues and a little while back I decided that I was going to redecorate the bambino’s room (well it won’t just be hers for much longer but let’s keep that between us). Actually, the boyf doesn’t quite ‘realise’ how my decorating plans have mushroomed so let’s pray he doesn’t read this! Anyway! I’ve pretty much decided that I’m going to inject some Mini Moderns into the room as I’m a huge fan.
The two eclectic designers who are also behind the design and branding agency Absolute Zero Degrees, are flying the flag for British design with their range of contemporary interior products for “kids and kidults “.
Trouble is, I can’t make up my mind and it’s partly because I’m torn between using the wallpaper for a feature wall or to ‘decoupage’ (see our post on fab D for Daisy decoupage furniture for an example) a white chest of Ikea drawers – in essence decorate the drawers with it and then coat in several layers of varnish. Don’t forget, any leftovers can be framed and you could also mix other materials in with your framing project to collage it and make it totally yours. Once I do make my decision, I will of course be sharing the decorating journey on here!
There are 16 inspired designs which are a mix of modern interpretations of traditional colour palettes (smoothie pink, buttercup, pear, and powder paint blue’ mixed with traditional themes like the ‘Moo’ wallpaper top left, plus the fabulous ‘colour me’ options such as the ‘Sitting Comfortably’ and ‘Do You Live in a Town?’ pictured above, which as the name suggests allows yours and your childs creativity to run free. At Â£38 per roll, and made in the UK with paper from sustainable forests, and printed with water based inks, these are eco-friendly, contemporary cool buys.
If colouring in is your thang, check out Kat’s previous post on Jon Burgerman’s ‘colouring in’ wallpaper and my post about Taylor & Wood’s ‘Frames’ wallpaper which we’re about to use on a wall in our kitchen.
