3 craws sat upon a wa’, sat upon a wa’, sat upon a wa’, on a cold and frosty morning!  A traditional scots song that suddenly came to mind (my mum used to sing to me) when I began to write this post on wall hangings!

Wall hangings are such a massive trend right now, and initially when we think of wall hangings I think we either think of baby mobiles, bunting etc. or very stylish adult wall hangings, but actually there are so many choices nowadays that are created specifically for kids or that can actually cross all boundaries of age, so I thought I’d share my Top 3 wall hangings for kids rooms, all from independent businesses found on Instagram x

Macrame wall hangings are bang on trend and super stylish (might just have bought myself one! #oops), they look super cool in a girls room or babies nursery, and are the perfect colour to sit with this seasons interior trends of muted pink, blue & dark grey tones; and imagine just how beautiful they would look in a nature inspired kids room, greens and foliage are another huge trend this year.

These handcrafted designs are from Dhavi Designs.  Jo is based in Innsbruck, Austria; although has travelled the world extensively and loves being close to nature where ever she is.  Her designs reflect this perfectly, each piece is made to order and will differ slightly due to the nature of the driftwood used and crafting by hand.

Felt Balls Garlands & Dreamcatchers are a fun and quick way to liven up any wall or shelf area. The great thing about them is you can hang them using your favourite Washi Tape or invisible hooks and re-arrange as much or as little as you want!

There are quite a few independents out there making garlands and more, but my favourite by far has to be The Bear & The Bird (so much so I now Rep for them, as absolutely love how their products sit with mine for product shots).  Choose from a myriad of colours, including glitter too; mini garlands, monster garlands (my favourite!), large and small dreamcatchers, custom plaques and so much more.  Going to their shop is kinda like visiting a sweetie shop, so much to choose from and you want it all! Can’t see exactly what you want, then Mel & Lisa will be only too happy to help…

Sometimes we just need something a little different to complete a wall.  Where it’s calling out for something totally unique, to fill a space that will take the room from beautiful to magical!

When I first discovered these Fiona Walker animal heads I was blown away.  I’d seen the 3D card/wood effects heads which I love, but for a children’s room I think these are just amazing.  They totally transport me back to my childhood, skipping round the house on my hobbyhorse, lost in a world of adventure. Diddle Tinkers have an enviable range available, these pastel version are my particular favourite!  Diddle Tinkers purpose is simple; to mix style, design, luxury and play for modern families, and transform toddler bedrooms and newborn nurseries, these animal heads certainly do that.

So there we have it! Took a little longer than planned to get this blog to you, but I hope you like it and find some inspiration to introduce wall hangings into your little ones rooms.

My best advice, mix it up! Add the traditional wall decor of shelving, mirrors, prints, canvases etc. but then add some truly unique and fun pieces like above to really set off your child’s room from others.  Most of all HAVE FUN and ENJOY, because guaranteed your child will love it then too.
