(ARA) - “Mural, mural on the wall -- Mine’s the coolest room of all!” Want to
guarantee your kids will say that? Let them personalize their space (don’t worry;
you’ll love it too).
Your local wallpaper store is bursting with clever new concepts for kids, like
themed wall murals with your child’s name, posters, cut-outs, wall appliqués, growth
charts, and borders from NASCAR, Major League Baseball, National Football League and
Sesame Street. Whether you’re raising a Little Leaguer or a pint-sized princess,
you can surround your little ones with their very favorite things.
All these wallpapers help children make a statement about the things they love the
most. “In childhood, we’re not shy about showing off our favorite things at every
opportunity,” says John Loecke, a New York City-based interior designer and the
former home furnishings editor of Parents magazine. “It’s important to let children
proudly express their passions, especially in their bedrooms, the safest comfort
zone of all.”
New this month, Completely Kids and Kidding Around with Murals wallpaper books from
Village have everything you and your child could want for their walls. Murals that
are small or large, poster-size or window-size are offered in themes for infants,
toddlers, teens…and everyone in between. Skateboards and race cars, trucks and tree
houses, dinosaurs and dollhouses, touchdowns and Tickle Me Elmo -- it’s all here,
Personalizing the many murals in these books (a huge hit with the kids) couldn’t be
easier. Just choose your murals, your preferred size, your desired name or phrase,
and in a matter of weeks you’ve treated your child to a dream come true. Custom
sizes are available, too.
If you’re looking to delight and inspire your child, these wallpapers are ideal.
Borders for young girls are both adorable and empowering, with teddy bears dressed
as doctors, chefs and soccer players. Boy bears are turned out as construction
workers, football players and firemen. But these award-winning wallpapers are more
than wise and witty. “Our murals, posters and appliqués are instantly removable,
and custom-sizing means you can use them in even the most awkward spaces,” says Deb
Zadnik, design director for Village Wallpaper. “Kids can change their minds
quickly, so we’ve made it easy to redecorate without giving it a second thought.”
