As you all can tell, wallpaper has made a huge comeback in design the past few years. Not just for adults but also for children. Gone are the grandma-ish prints and colors of the past. New playful and even eco-friendly designs are here to stay. A wonderful one-stop resource for eco-friendly wallpaper with juveniles in mind is the on-line shop Saplings. Saplings is a Canadian website which specializes in sustainable kids decor. They carry the ever-popular line Ferm Living (pictured above & below), Ollie & Lime, Miss Print & Chato & Co.
The Fairy Tale Collection by Chato & Co is represented exclusively by Saplings. The prints are whimsical and not too childish. The collection is inspired by magical stories that make you dream and smile. One of the benefits of using decorative wallpaper is that you don’t need galleries of artwork on the walls or heavily patterned bedding to make the room interesting. The wallpaper takes center stage.
The rolls generally cover 55 square feet and cost $85 to $105 per roll. Yes wallpaper is more labor intensive than painting to put up but it is cheaper than hiring a muralist and it will definitely make your child’s room stand out.
Convinced? What will you wallpaper next?
