Introducing Anamoly, designing children’s wallpaper and other ‘housey’ things

for little people and parents.

 

“It’s much more enchanting to have a child’s imagination behind the range rather just selecting a generic character”

 

Esme is founder, designer and chief of all at Anamoly. When designing begins she always starts with colour. Colour is so important to her ranges; next she designs a print with this in mind; pairing the illustration with the palette. When deciding on what animals to choose Esme loves a little story behind them, often they have been chosen by someone she knows, or a little one has requested them. It’s much more enchanting to have a child’s imagination behind the range rather just selecting a generic character. As a result of this process, this is something Esme now offers in the Anamoly bespoke service, where you can choose a colour or design to suit your wants and scheme. So, if your little one loves lizards, or bears, or beetles, she will design you a wallpaper that fulfils your desires.

 

Anamoly is committed to giving their customers an array of options when it comes to designing their nursery. With a range of colours and designs that suit all tastes. To develop the range, Esme now offers a collection in Monochrome. Monochrome is a great option for a nursery, it’s simple clean feel allows you to design your nursery with no gender in mind, for those who like to keep it as a surprise. Later accessorising with a specific or on-trend colours. Monochrome gives you a clean canvas to build upon with colourful furniture and accessories.

 

 

Anamoly wallpaper is uncoated, to enhance a natural soft finish, with a ‘wipe’ clean durability to avoid light marks and scuffs that accidentally happen now and again. All wallpapers are consciously sourced, only using PEFC certified wallpapers which means products promote the sustainable management of forests. And all inks used are non-toxic & organic, which are non-carcinogenic, so the best they can be for little ones.

Pioneer Wallpaper Design for Kids Rooms by MissPrint

 

Out of 8 new designs, Rooomy picks the favourite four for kids bedrooms. 

Certain that they will bring bold pattern, colour and life into any child’s bedroom

 

Unveiled at this year’s Paris Déco Off, the new Pioneer collection from MissPrint introduces eight new wallpaper designs that celebrate the brand’s signature style of illustration and confident approach to colour in the modern home.

By its very meaning, ‘pioneer’, denotes a sense of discovery, exploration and innovation. From the deepest depths of our oceans to the soaring skies above, the collection is a celebration of adventure and everything the earth has to offer.

In no particular order:

Nazca

If we play mallets mallet with this design, what’s the first word that comes to mind? Fun – Play – Delight – Joy and so on and so forth. This playful design of leaves, rainbows and swirls is perfectly designed to ignite your child’s imagination and comes in five great colour options, but be careful with the monochrome, they may be tempted to colour it in, maybe you could let them, wouldn’t that be fun? 

Wildflower

This design might look familiar, but it is unique and it’s in the favourite four because of this bold colour palette. Great for a teen bedroom, edgy and dark but not oppressive in anyway, this could well keep both teens and parents happy. If you like the design but the dark palette is not your cup of tea, don’t worry it comes in three other colour ways, two of them would look beautiful in a nursery.

Limelight

What child isn’t fascinated by the stars? Thinking on stars can take us to far away magical places, kids fleetingly think on just how big the world and universe is, dreams of travelling to space, making wishes and so much more. The five colour options also allow you to put a twist on the night sky, it doesn’t have to be dark, it can be yellow and warm or pink and playful. 

Coral

All the squiggles of under the sea with vibrant colour options. Children will gaze on this and either see a maze they need to work their finger through, or they’ll escape on a deep-sea dive. They will definitely want to play in a room with a wall covered in this design, and we all know play is the best thing for their incredible developing minds. 

Meticulously drawn by hand and produced in the UK using a selection of traditional print techniques, the Pioneer collection evokes a sense of confidence through versatile shades and bold repeat patterns, whilst reflecting the distinctively unique and modern style synonymous with MissPrint. From the giant shield-like leaves of Jungle and the eye-catching star-like pattern of Limelight, to the mesmerising labyrinth pattern of Coral and the intricate dot work of Deep Sea, the collection embraces influences from all that surrounds us. Presented in a diverse yet contemporary palette of deep blues, mustard yellows, coral pinks and earthy greens, the essence of Pioneer is captured through a combination of delicate line work and pointillism, eye-catching geometric shapes and nature-inspired patterns.

Happy wallpaper, don’t forget to send us your makeovers or tag us in social media – you can get in touch here

Wallpaper that will highlight your winning monochrome style

 

Rooomy’s round up of the best wallpapers which will bring

monochrome style into your kid’s bedroom

Geometric wall designs are on the rise, Instagram and Pinterest showcase more and more mountain range triangles across the wall of kid’s rooms and nurseries, which is a wonderful way to break up a blank wall and bring a sense of adventure to your child’s room.

This mountain wallpaper takes the flat one-dimensional look and takes it to a new level with the added pattern details and shading, and with the peep of yellow it is sure the inspire your child to want to go and climb a few mountains and take on the world. A wonderful way to encourage them to get outside and explore and be in the world rather than stuck on a device. The irregular angles keep the eye moving around the design which cleverly puts a stop to you feel overwhelmed by the repetitiveness of the design, and the sun popping up to say hello puts a little smile in the corners of your mouth, just what we need for our kids and their developing minds.

The perfect way to bring a soft finish to your child’s room with these beautiful clouds of different shapes that extend right the way across the wall. The playfulness encompassed in these little fluffy clouds skips out of the designs which almost looks like a child has drawn them themselves.

The design is very smart and clever as it will work in a room for any age from a newborn through to a teen. The clouds are also available in a blue and grey colour way which may be more suited to a nursery but this black and white finish is perfection, the only warning needed is that kids might want to colour them in, so keep an eye out.

Bruce reached the ocean at dead of night and discovered it comes to life even when it’s at its blackest. He stood watching the stars dance on top of the water and listening to the whales sing below, he felt pleased that his adventure had to come to an end and as he gazed on a shooting star above he wondered what his next great adventure would be.

Give your child a story on their wall. All the Mini Waller decals are full of great characters bursting to have their story told. Everyone in the family can make up their own or you can take it in turns, adding to what was said before, growing the story and adventure together. Take a moment to gaze on this one and see what comes to your mind…have fun.

When wallpaper feels too much for your space you can make an excellent statement with this wonderful large peony wall decal. It does come in a beautiful pastel option too, but this black and white design is dramatic and stunning. It’s diverse too as it will work in a nursery, kids’ room and a teen space too, leaving the whole rest of the room to be styled accordingly.

Australia is still producing the most incredible designs when it comes to our kids’ bedrooms, they are paving the way for encouraging parents to break away from a generic room, showing parents how to make their children’s bedrooms a truly wonderful place for them to sleep, dream, play and grow in.

The absolute best part is that you can take it down and move it, how handy is that?

A lot of fun can be had with pattern when designing with monochrome, you can go big and bold or small and busy. You need to be careful here as sometimes the small and busy can start to look like a magic eye creation and hypnosis may be induced (this could actually be handy for parents, ha).

If you go big and bold it is also wonderful to mix patterns, why have just dots when you can add stripes too, they do it in fashion so why not in our rooms? Plus, these two would look brilliant for a powerful kid’s room and as with most monochrome designs they give you the flexibility to do whatever you want with the rest of the room and you wouldn’t have to update the room too quickly either, another win!

 

We hope you have fun choosing one of these fab designs if monochrome wallpaper is your focus for your kids bedrooms.  Please note that as timeless as these looks are, brands and retailers change their stock from time to time and therefore we cannot guarantee these items will be available. If any of the above items have been discontinued, do let us know and we will work hard to find you a great alternative. You can email us here.

Monochrome Style for Kids’ Interiors

 

Two Tone your home to inject some instant cool to your child’s room. 

Style Editor Sarah Keady tells us how to achieve this stylish look.

 

Monochrome is a stylish colour scheme that works for us grown-ups’ rooms, we have long taken inspiration from those clever Scandinavian brands-but there’s no reason why the same rules shouldn’t apply to nurseries and playrooms.

You may think that it’s a strict framework to work within-but you’d be wrong-there are lots of ways to get creative-from mixing in neutrals and pastels to combining textures and prints-check out these Pinterest-worthy ideas to get inspired.

So forget life in colour-this season it’s all about decorating in black and white.

Black walls anyone? Sounds scary but here you can see how stylish and understated it can be. Keep everything else white: the bedding, accessories and flooring here provides a welcome contrast.

There are some great prints out there for nurseries and bedrooms. Investing in art is a great way to dress your walls. We love these linocuts: group them together for maximum effect.

Wall stickers are a subtle (and temporary) way to introduce a monotone look. These black and metallic stars add a subtle sparkle to walls. Use them in a corner of a room to create a focal point.

Children’s wallpapers have come a long way in recent years. Choose a simple design like this one that has a small repeat to keep it looking both modern and timeless.

A splash of yellow is a winning accent colour. Use it sparingly through accessories such as storage baskets and cushions to add a sunny lift to your scheme.

Create a serene study space within the bedroom through simple black furniture-industrial lighting, concrete accessories and faux fur will add the wow factor to an otherwise ordinary white room.

We’ve long been a fan of Bloomingville’s cool Scandinavian style.  Mixing different textures together to keep it looking inviting, soft greys and powder blues will also add to soften the look.

A monochrome tepee with a patchwork of cushions, beanbags and rugs will create a stylish haven to cosy up to. Choose a strong, graphic print. Oostor sell theirs in stripes, grid-like squares and crosses.

Happy Styling x

Perfect Room for a Little Person

 

Monochrome is the perfect look for a gender neutral room

Patricia Hoyna shows us how it’s done

 

The brief was to design a ‘gender neutral’ bedroom for a 3 1/2-year-old Sam. His parents had scrupulously avoided pink and blue when buying toys and clothes in order to avoid the limitations of stereotyped gender roles. In Sweden, where Sam’s parents come from, national curriculum requires preschools to “counteract traditional gender roles and gender patterns”, children are encouraged to explore.

The Scandi love for black and white is still going strong and what better way to use a monochrome colour scheme and inject some colour and playfulness with accent tones, fun toys and inspiring accessories! Sam loves animals, especially those featured in his books, so I found plenty of them. I sourced different shapes and sizes, some animals are there to hug and provide comfort, some to hold.

Sam’s stack of books keeps the room bright! There is something wonderfully crisp, calming and clean about black and white combo. As with every other colour, a successful room design is about getting the proportions right. When I chat to kids about their colour preferences, they often choose a pair: pink and purple or red and blue. I always honour their wishes, but the method is that one colour must dominate, otherwise it’s a visual disaster and it would be quite unsettling. The best approach is to split the colours to 70:30 ratio. Because it’s a room for a little one, I’ve opted for 70% white and 30% black with a splash of warm and cheery yellow. Bringing an accent colour can do wonders to elevate the look and feel of the space.

Top Tip
When designing a room don’t just think about the colour – pattern and texture are equally important

I have a tip for you: when designing a room don’t just think about the colour – pattern and texture are equally important. The wallpaper I chose, with its subtle design, makes the room feel cosier without overwhelming the eye. The combination of different patterns provides visual interest. It’s the same with texture: bring in a variety of textiles that are pleasant to touch. Comfort has much more to do with the way we feel rather than the way it looks. The most sensual fabrics delight the skin. How about a mohair blanket, wool rug or velvet cushion? These are tried and tested for pleasure zones. I use them in layers for flexibility, piling them up in the winter and stripping them down in summer.

Sam enjoys drawing, so despite the room being of modest proportions, we’ve found a desk where this little artist can work on producing wonderful artworks. Children are incredibly creative and there is a better way of sticking their drawings than with a magnet to the fridge. The selection of lovely frames in all shapes and colours are easily accessible, so why not make a fuss and create a lovely exhibition in the hallway?! Not only will it give them sense of pride and recognition but also by expanding their input to other rooms than their bedroom we make it a home without boundaries.

Meet Izzy, a sophisticated woman who works in marketing and travels frequently for work … not really! Not yet anyway! Welcome to the room of 13-year-old Izzy. I would be lying if I said the kids I meet, particularly the tween/teen stage never fail to surprise me (read impress me). Their taste level is so sophisticated at such a young age. It could be the constant exposure to the world of social media, with inspiration at your fingertips 24/7. Or maybe it’s confidence and knowing exactly what you want.

The process from start to finish was very simple as Izzy was very clear in her brief. Prior to our first consultation Izzy had collated a Pinterest board with a few select images that specified the look and feel she wanted for her new room. I translated her ideas into a cohesive scheme marrying Izzy’s wish list with the practicalities of the room and the budget.

The room is very compact but houses everything a gal needs. The floorspace is around 3m x 3m. Izzy needed a comfy bed to chill on that doubles as both storage and an extra bed for sleep overs, desk/dressing area and oodles of built in storage. We laid wooden floors and painted the boards white to create the illusion of space and light. We followed this through to the windows which were dressed with white slatted blinds. The wallpaper is an amazing faux white brick pattern, with copper highlights throughout for Izzy to display her pics and personal mementos. Warmth was added through textiles: sheepskins on the floor, mixed textures in the scatter cushions and bedding. Fun styling pieces included cacti, new stationery and fun pots and bottles for her stationery and cosmetics.

and feel she wanted for her new room

As Izzy chills in bed, she can see her framed collection of Vogue. She got the idea after attending the Chanel exhibition at the Saatchi gallery. Did I mention what a stylish, sophisticated young lady she is? Inspirational style lessons to be had for all ages in this teen room!

Enjoy and be inspired!
