It’s been a while since I shared a fantastic wallpaper with you guys so today you are in for a bit of a treat. I was introduced to this particular company by renowned interior stylist Pippa Jameson who thought I might like their new wallpaper range for children. Needless to say she was spot on. Wild Hearts Wonder is a children’s lifestyle brand that features hand-painted print ‘stories’ across interiors,clothing and accessories, that was founded by sisters Mairead and Emily. Having done I bit of research into the company, I really liked what they stand for and I think we share similar values and attitudes.
When it comes to my kids, I personally try to steer them away from the mass market products that most kids are seduced by. I don’t encourage a love of Disney princesses for example or any kind of children’s TV characters for that fact (Peppa Pig anyone?). Instead I try to look for things that are a bit out of the ordinary, more educational and that encourage them to use their imagination and build their own character. It’s so easy to simply jump on the bandwagon and accept what is marketed to children, but I prefer to gently encourage my girls to seek out things that are more meaningful and beneficial. (Remember this Magical Children’s Bedding that made me cry?)
And this is what struck me about this beautiful wallpaper range for children. It is very creative and the detail is just stunning. It also allows children to use the wallpaper as inspiration for storytelling, which is such a valuable skill. So I decided that I wanted to know more about Wild Hearts Wonder, and their beautiful wallpapers as well as the inspiration behind the company and their design philosophy.
