It’s been a while since my last wallpaper post and I have a real treat for you today in the form of this whimsical magnetic wallpaper from Nubie. The collection has been designed by Sian Zeng, an award winning London-based designer specialising in wallpapers, interior accessories and gifts. Sian graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and won Elle Decoration’s Young Talent of the Year Awards 2010/11. Her charming illustrated prints are designed to encourage playfulness and ignite imaginations and that is exactly what this magnetic children’s wallpaper collection does. It comes in two delightful narratives called Dino and Woodland and is available in a range of contemporary colourways. The best bit though is that because it is magnetic children can act out their own stories by moving a cast of magnetic creatures across the wallpaper. Kids can also personalise the story further by using the write-on speech bubbles to include quirky quotes. But how does magnetic wallpaper work exactly? It’s actually pretty simple. You just need to hang the supplied magnetic liner underneath the wallpaper design to create an interactive and magical surface. The downside? Well, magnetic wallpaper certainly doesn’t come cheap at £248 a roll. But if it’s the design you like, the paper is also available in a non-magnetic version for a fraction of the cost.
