Inke’s Wonderful Wallpaper Trees

inkeAs you know we recently moved to a new house. It has a little garden, but it’s by no means bigger than the previous apartment, so our children are still (happily) sharing a room. My husband and I went through some effort to make it a lovely, cosy space (we have really sweet kids, you know), so we painted, hung bookshelves, assembled cabinets, and glued an enormous, wonderful wallpaper tree to the wall.

Inke Heiland originally designed her wallpaper silhouettes for her little boy’s room, but after great results and very positive feedback she decided to start producing the designs, which are now available from her webshop. All handmade from the most exquisite vintage wallpaper, these trees come as a do-it-yourself kit, completely cut out, with clear instructions, wallpaper glue and brush present in the tube. It was a bit scary at first as neither of us have wallpapered before, but the application process was surprisingly easy, and though I’m not saying it was 3 minutes work — more certainly we spent over 3 hours — the result is absolutely fantastic. The kids are super proud and adore their room. And yes, I admit, it did turn out rather nicely.
I really recommend Inke’s designs — they’re highly original, will instantly spice up every kids room and they certainly complement different interior styles very easily.  They’re available through her webshop, or through our favourite eco shop ShakShuka.

that is LOVELY! I used a wallpaper mural for my son’s room. It is a bit intimidating when you set to do it….but nice!

I LOVE Inke’s wallpaper creations! I bought the elephant for my daughter’s room ages ago, but have been rather *nervous* about putting it up… only because I’m afraid I’ll do a horrible job of it. Please tell me it’s not so tricky!

Hi Sandra,
I was nervous at first as well, but it’s really not so bad, the glue doesn’t really stain, you can easily wash it off with water. And I think the elephant is probably easier than the tree was — the tree come with 80 individual leaves! Just find an assistant to put it up, you really need the extra pair of hands…

Super sweet and easy, I love it. You should also have a look at the wallpaper by Maria Kirk Mikkelsen, she has created a wallpaper where your children can do the coloring. http://www.picnicundertheorangetree.com/playtime/welcome-to-the-jungle/
