Rooomy’s Top 5 Walls for Sustainability,

for kid’s rooms and the family home

 

Looking for sustainable wallpaper is really easy now.  It is tough to find a company that don’t print on paper that comes from an FSC or PEFC certified sustainable forest, toxic paints are scarcely used the any decent wallpaper paste will be solvent free, so it’s just down to you to buy the good paste. 

Aimee Wilder – Star Tiger

If you child loves big cats and is also a funky kid then this design it for them and better yet the colour options means there is something to suite the outlandish with the neon pink or yellow, then there’s the muted blue, grey and brown for the more introverted personas and finally a stylish monochrome which always allows for pop of colour through out the room is you wish.  If you were feeling adventurous you could mix and match!  With the calm yet stern stare of the tiger, coupled with a starred eye nod to bowie, this paper will last for years as it works for all ages.

Little Greene

Oh, this design has it all.  Stars, flowers, colour, a sense of rainbow style it’s great!  It is available in three other colour ways all with a nod to the 60’s but unless your kid is into serious vintage the heavy yellows, browns and red might not be the vibe they’re looking for.  However the peacock colour way is a joyful finish, bringing the outside in, the playful movement of the pattern and something to bring joy to the soul. 

The paper used in Little Greene wallpapers comes from FSC or PEFC certificated sustainable forests; so for every tree used another four are planted. The pigments used to print them are completely non-toxic and their excellent wallpaper paste contains no solvent.

Arthouse Ltd – Hidden Jungle

All the detail, design, colours, layering and gorgeousness you could ask for, all wrapped up in this hidden jungle design.  A wonderful way to inspire children to care about the planet is to surround them with the parts of the world they don’t get to experience.  Build their passion to these animals in the wild one day and they will be on board with conservation and sustainability for sure. 

Wonderfully versatile, you can hang this paper in a living room, bedroom, playroom or cloakroom – on all four walls for a dramatic look or on a feature wall. Suitable for most rooms except high moisture environments

Spoonflower – Katherine Quinn’s Whale Song

Whenever I research wallpaper I always pick a dark option as I think it is a stunning , striking and a brave way to decorate.  I am also conscious that as well as choosing FSC certified papers I’ve continued along the jungle theme in the hope of prompting children to think about the environment.  Of course, not all children are fans of land animals and some have a huge affinity with the wonders of our deep and vast oceans.  Kathrine Quinn has captured this beautifully in her design, I think we can tell she’s from New Zealand as she portrays many whales as well as sting rays, sea horses and plenty of fish.  A wonderful bold wall in any child’s bedroom whatever their age!

Rebel Walls – Mischievous Tigers

Enjoy the confident and superior movements of one of the world’s most graceful animals – the tiger.  If the previous jungle design was too colourful for you and maybe you’re looking for a more realistic foliage design still incorporating the animal aspect, then this design is the one for you. They are up to all sorts in this design, weaving in and out of the leaves bringing a playfulness to the feel which is just what you want for your kids room.

All of Rebel Walls wallpapers are printed on a non-woven paper reinforced with nylon fibres that create no VOC (Volatile organic compound) in room temperature. They print with all-natural non-toxic colour compounds that produce no VOC and our paste is made from modified potato starch that is also non-toxic.

Wallpaper that will take your child to the beach or into the ocean

 

Rooomy’s round up of the best wallpapers for your kid’s bedroom, 

which will bring the sense of deep sea adventure or chilling on the beach.

Whales have always seemed amazing to us: the largest mammal on earth, their under-water speech, the sheer mass splashing down in the ocean to their calm, large glide through the water. With Finding Nemo, Pixar have helped take them to a new level where we now feel we are all able to speak whale which is fantastic.  Here at Rooomy we’re  great at speaking whale, some better than others of course.  This wonderful design manages to encapsulate their fun side.  The design is also available in grey.

You’re arty and you love the ocean and you don’t want a wallpaper that is too childish: this is for you. The flowing sea grass (sea weed just sounded to yucky) gives a lovely  to this design and then you have the pleasure of spotting the hiding seahorses, starfish and shells. Available in different colour ways to suit all your tonal needs. This would work great on a split wall, if you have a dado  rail. You can have lots of fun with this design, maybe use two or three different colour ways to bring all the colours of the sea to their space.

Under the sea does not need to mean The Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo. Maybe the pattern of wallpaper is just not for you. With this sea cave mural you can help your child go on an under the sea adventure of their own, available for any size wall. For your teenager this will bring a great sense of calm to their space when they are stressing over exams and all the other hurdles that go hand in hand with hormone surges.  Who knows it could inspire some scuba diving training?

So many wallpapers are not considered for kid’s rooms – too fancy, too grown up (whatever that mean). If you’re a fan of the beach and your kids love making endless sand angels, rock pooling and cart-wheeling along the beach then this design could be for you. Its warm rainbow tones are perfect for happy daydreaming of seaside adventures, but from the comfort of the carpet or cosy in bed. Their imagination, memories and creativity will all be firing away! Maybe you can join them for a lazy daydream? Cornetto, anyone?

Getting Your Childs’ Bedroom Spring Ready

Getting Your Childs’ Bedroom Spring Ready

New Season New Life

 

Bring the outside in to get your child’s bedroom Spring ready 

by Sarah Keady

 

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your child’s room. It’s not just their wardrobe that needs an update, chunky wool knits optimistically being swapped for lighter linens, the same will need to happen with their blankets and bedding too.

We know about the practicalities of the warmer months approaching, but what about the trends appearing through this seasons’ offerings?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, nature will play a big part – woodland motifs, natural woods and textured prints are all there, but it’s also playful. Teepees and tents and accessories, such as bunting and hanging plants, are just some of the fun ways to help you bring the outdoors in for your little ones to enjoy until they can happily waddle off to play outside in the warmer months’ ahead.

This bed doubles up as a tent to create the ultimate hideaway. All you need to add are oversized scatter cushions, beanbags and simple wooden accessories.

Pale, textured woods will instantly bring nature into the room, consider adding pops of mustard and burnt orange to draw your eye across the room. I love the prints with the matching frames.

“Nature will play a big part – woodland motifs, natural woods and textured prints
are all there, but it’s also playful”

Textiles are probably the easiest (and cheapest) way to update a space. Layer rugs, cushions and blankets in different textures and patterns to create fun space to cosy up in.

Small, upholstered pieces of furniture are a great way to bring pretty botanical prints into your child’s bedroom. All you need to accessorise with are plants, we love these glass ones, be sure to hang them out of reach.

Create a mini-getaway in the corner of a living room or play room with a teepee. Throws and fairy lights will keep it looking magical as the night draws in.

Adding pastel accessories to minimal spaces gives a room a stylish Scandinavian feel, bunting and animal prints here keep it all looking playful and light. Check out that toy box, storage for unwanted clutter will help keep the space looking calm.

A monochrome colour scheme will always look fresh and modern, and it allows you to be more playful with pattern. We love the animal cushions, fun ornaments and abstract mountains here.

Tree-printed wallpaper adds warmth to this otherwise white nursery whilst the stag head brings some unexpected quirkiness. Decorating above key spaces like changing areas are ideal for creating a focal point in a room.

Best of the Rest

 

Patricia Hoyna shares her top finds from the Scottish Interiors Showcase 

The Spring season is when new collections come to life and fabulous designs are released to spark our imagination. This year is no different and I’d like to share my personal favourites from the Scottish Interiors Showcase, the biggest trade-only event in the UK.

Animals, birds and botanicals were the most notable trend in the world of textiles and wallcoverings. With colour palettes ranging from subtle pastels to punchy, electric blues, vibrant reds and mustard yellows.

Two companies in particular caught my eye with their fantastic range of children’s wallpaper. One you probably all know, Sweden’s, Borastapeter, manufacturing wallpapers since 1905! The other brand, Caselio, is also renowned for its innovative and high-quality products, coming to us from France with their bold and funky, modern designs. They are both very strong contenders, yet with very different visions. 

‘One wallpaper and thousands of tales’, is the new collection from Borastapeter Scandinavian Designers Mini and Scandinavian Designers II. These playful wallpapers feature fantastic patterns from some of Sweden’s foremost children’s artists and playtime inspirations. Whimsical, figurative motifs are designed to engage, delight and inspire; squirrels exploring, hooting owls in hats – telling a bed time story has never been easier! l truly love the calming qualities of Poem d’ Amour and my favourite is a shaggy polar bear that swims and frolics among lovely little water bubbles.

A pattern from the large, playful collection that Stig Lindberg composed for an exhibition at NK (the Nordic Company) in 1947. The managing director, Astrid Sampe fell in love with the pattern to such a degree that she had it turned into a dress. Stig Lindberg then made a necklace and bracelet of porcelain flowers for the dress that is now on display at the Nordic Museum.
Designed by Stig Lindberg, Scandinavian Designers II, Poeme d’amour 1765: £59.00

A hand-drawn wallpaper for children’s rooms that sees squirrels swinging, hanging upside down and gathering acorns. The contrasts, details and vibrant colours get the imagination going in this narrative pattern, created in Boråstapeter’s Design Studio. Here with a dark base, which creates a cosy, playful feel in children’s rooms. Also available with a white background for a softer finish.  Designed by Amanda Nordblad, Scandinavian Designers Mini, Charlie 6252: £59.00

Wallpaper that bring a hint of nature indoors

 

Rooomy’s round up of the best wallpapers for your kid’s bedroom, 

which will bring the sense of the outdoors indoors.

When it comes to our children all animals are appropriate all year round. Polar bears are a wondrous creature, we may think of Iorek Byrnison from the His Dark Materials trilogy, the armoured bear who protects the heroine and we love to see them play on the snow in documentaries, who doesn’t?

Anamoly only use PEFC certified wallpapers which means their products promote the sustainable management of forests. Anamoly also use non-toxic organic inks, which are noncarcinogenic, so as good as they can be for little ones.

You want more nature but you don’t want it to be overly green and you would really like to warm things up with pink tones.  Fleur Harris has got your back as she designed this wonderful woodland wallpaper in collaboration with Jimmy Crcket, if you saw Issue 1 you’ll know that Austrailia are ahead of the curve when it comes to children’s interiors, looking at this design we can see why.

Available in five other shades.  All their wallpaper is printed on non woven paper and is coated for both quality and practicality. The coating allows the wallpaper to be wiped over kept looking clean and lovely which is basically an essential with kids’.

When you think nature don’t just think woodlands and wild animals, you need to think about how much fun is to be had at the farm too. This rural inspired paper brings country living into their rooms with farmyard favourites such as cows and chickens, tractors and of course the farmer and his wife, all designed with a splash of humour.

These beautifully illustrated wallpapers are made and printed in England using traditional techniques on high quality sustainable forest paper and are available in four other shades.

This beautifully design and very fun print is inspired by a teddy bears picnic, an old fashioned and well-loved theme, recreated with a modern edge. In the UK badgers and foxes best represent our woodland heritage sometimes getting a bad press, but think of Roald Dahl’s, Fantastic Mr Fox and the grumpy but beloved Badger in The Wind and the Willows. With every gaze children lose themselves in a sense of curiosity, discovery and wonder. Let your little one tell their own bedtime tale through this wild and whimsical print.

Nursery Reader Room

Creative, Pretty, Unique, Nursery

by India Thompson

 

We’d been living in our house for around three years before the little one arrived. Beforehand, the nursery was a spare room which was never really used. It was more of a dumping ground and a place to hang our washing. After finding out we were having a baby, I was straight onto Pinterest looking for ideas on what we could do.  

I love how much sun the room gets and I wanted to keep the room nice and light. As the ceilings are low we decided to paint half the walls to help make the room look bigger. I had spotted the Eleanor Bowmer wallpaper before we knew we were having a girl, as soon as we found out it was ordered.

Many of my purchases are all from small businesses, with my favourite being our Totter and Tumble play mat. The original wooden flooring isn’t ideal for crawling babies, so the play mat is perfect. One of the great things about it is it is double sided.

Some of the other items are, the wooden rainbow from Autumns Corner, prints on the walls from Pretty in Print Art, The Charming Press and It’s Made by Leah.

As we already had the chest of drawers I needed a changing mat that would be able to sit on the top. We went for one from the small business Mabel & Fox which looks great against the wallpaper.

Before we brought the furniture we had and idea of where we wanted things to go. However, my measuring skills weren’t quite up to scratch and I incorrectly measured the space, whoops! In the end we were much happier with the layout as it has given us more floor space.

The chest of drawers were from my late godmother and I want to find nursery furniture that would match. I struggled to find nursery furniture that I wanted and we ended up buying the cot and wardrobe from Ikea – although they don’t match, I think they work with the chest of drawers.

 

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

 

If we were to do the room again, I would like to have more space for books and toys and also some more plants in there. I think I would also utilise the space which is used as our airing cupboard, and instead, use this as a wardrobe, giving us more floor space.
