All about the boys

If, like me, you have children who desperately want to decorate their rooms with Disney wallpaper or Ben 10 borders, take a look at these contemporary, and much more aesthetically pleasing, alternatives.

Paper Boy - Animal Magic wallpaper

Paper Boy wallpapers specialise in wallcoverings for little boys who love all things scary and slightly macabre! This Animal Magic wallpaper has a skeleton super-imposed onto the silhouette of every day pets - it can't be seen in the dark though, so hopefully won't give nightmares! Paper Boy also do a great dinosaur wallpaper for little paleontologists.

Lizzie Allen - Changing Guard wallpaper

Lizzie Allen's hand screen-printed wallpapers are a whimsical take on London life. This design was inspired by A A Milne's poem 'Changing Guard' and reminds me of Ludwig Bemelman's illustrations for the Madeline books I used to love.


Rasch Textil - Shark Attack wallpaper

This slightly menacing Shark Attack wallpaper by Rasch Textil, designed by Charles Graser Daughters,  is only for the brave-hearted! The metallic sharks glow when illuminated which is sure to be hit with boys. Buy it at Color 24.

Well - that's a few ideas for boys rooms. Let me know what you think.
Tomorrow I'll post some fantastic papers for girls rooms.
