An impressive statement wall can be all it takes to give a room the wow factor. Arty decals have arrived and they’re shaking up run-of-the-mill children’s murals, blurring beautifully the line between art and decor. So what’s new?
It’s all about hand-painted images, with designers going old school, creating striking and bespoke images with oil on canvas, which are then cut out and mounted onto sticky backing. The result is remarkable – and removable – artwork that can grow and move with your family.
Ahead of the curve and leading the wall-art pack is Stick Up Collective. Launched by London artist and decor innovator Sonia Blair, inspiration for the new-look decals comes directly from a career in street art and cutting-edge murals, and her experiences in motherhood.
Whether it’s sleeping bunnies or rampaging tigers that your little one adores, bring their fantasies to life with the pretty brushstrokes on this adhesive art. Each peel-and-go, hand-finished, fabric wall print is signed and numbered by the artist, for extra collectability.
It’s all about wall-art accents in 2017, and these designs are guaranteed to add oomph to any room. Who knew walls could look so good?
No matter if it’s woodland chic or jungle fever you’re channeling, there’s a design for every little art lover. Make their walls pop with one big headturner or mix and match baby ducklings, blue tits, sleepy bunnies and squirrels.
