Inspiration behind our latest Kids Collection

New Wallpaper for Kids Room

It's a small world- a new collection for kids- launches this Thursday! We were inspired by every child's wondrous curiosity, innate bravery, and their pure unbridled joy when it's time for play. One of the most delightful things about children is their sense of innocence and wonder, but maintaining that in today's hurried world can be a challenge. To continously foster moments of joy and childlike wonder, we thought we should take a playful approach and embrace nature. Afterall, play encourages creativity and nature fosters emotional development in children.

4 New Wallpaper Designs for the Little Ones

With that in mind, and drawing inspiration from people around us, 4 designs made the cut. We have a playground, a barnyard, a nautical and a woods design.

Have you seen our playground design up close? It has fruits masquerading as playthings! Inspired by our niece who loves eating fruit and of course to play. Which kid doesn't?

Our barnyard design is a nod to rustic farm life and its creatures. Animals are always a favourite amongst kids.

The nautical design can be used in a nursery or child's bedroom which can be styled in a multitude of styles. See our moodboard on our instagram for inspiration!

And as always, we have to have a nature themed design in the form of a woodlands. It just sets the tone for a calm inviting space, just what new parents need sometimes. Autumnal, soft colours were chosen for its longevity and not to overwhelm. Besides, our colour palette is suitable for creating gender neutral rooms.

Our team continuously went back to the drawing board with our various design and colour iterations before settling on the final product. We hope children, young and the not so young, love the designs! Head on down to 'New In' on hellocircus.com to discover more.

Wainscotting - Tips about this trend and how to use it

Wainscotting is in trend these days and we will share with you some tips show you how to make the space stand out more? 

What is wainscoting?

Wainscoting started out in the 18th century as a wall covering used to help insulate a room and provides a more durable surface than a painted wall.

Now, it's mainly used as a decorative accent panelling that usually covers half of your interior walls. It is usually installed only on the lower portion of the wall.

Why should I do wainscoting?

It helps make a room more visually appealing. While historically wainscoting was made from wood, this type of panel now includes a variety of materials  being that it is installed only on the lower portion of the wall. The height of this detail can vary depending on your rooms' designs and the look you are trying to achieve.

Some favourite spots for this panel treatment are in an entryways, as these spaces typically lack texture and architectural interest. Now, parents use it for kids room so that it protects the wallpaper from get drawn on and it is easy to swap out the wallpaper.

In addition, these wall panelling can be extended to create the illusion of a generous ceiling height.

Here’s some ideas how you can decorate your panels:

  1. Make your walls pop by painting your panels in a different shade to your paint
  2. Add an high impact wallpaper on the top half of wall to create for some texture and pattern
  3. Hang decorative onto your walls

Wallpaper for Kitchen or Bathroom

Can Wallpaper be used in Bathroom or Kitchen?

While we will not recommend applying wallpaper at an area exposed to directly moisture or water, wallpaper can technically be used in these 2 spaces!

Wallpaper Tips for Bathroom and Kitchen

In the kitchen, a vintage tile patterned design can be used on the top half of the wall behind an induction top or even the sink where there isn't direct exposure to heat or water. It is the same concept for the bathroom.

In fact, check out this following image for bathroom wallpaper inspiration! We totally see why this picture has been so well received.

Bathroom Wallpaper using Hello Circus' Adora Vintage Wallpaper

For these areas, we recommend using vinyl coated or solid vinyl wallpapers since they are much more durable.

Wallpaper mural vs paint: Which is better?

Both wallpaper and paint can add vibrancy and style to any room and home decor.  They are both great choices, so it all depends on your personal preferences and style. Which is the better option? Here are some differences between wallpaper mural and paint that can help you make an informed decision:

Selection 

Paint options are vast. You can choose a paint of nearly any shade. It is a great option if you want flat, glossy, or matte solid walls. However, it is extremely difficult to create designs and patterns using paint, and expensive if you want to hire a professional to do that.

Wallpaper has options in both solid colours and patterns. Very often, wallpaper designs can also mimic certain textures, for example that of linen. You may also choose a wallpaper that has designs and effects, such as foil and shimmer.

Durability

Professionally painting usually last for about 10 years, depending on the traffic in the room. For example, child’s room and the kitchen are high traffic rooms, where dirt, grease, and messy hands frequently touch the walls. It will require touchups over time to ensure that the paint is properly maintained. 

Wallpaper usually lasts up to 15 years, even in high footfall areas of the home. It is easily washable, so it is great to use even in areas such as the kitchen and bathroom. Although it is possible for wallpaper to peel or crack over time, touchups can be easily done by using a small amount of wallpaper glue.

Cost

Paint usually costs less upfront itself depending on the type, finish, and brand. Higher quality paints that last longer typically cost more while their lower cost counterparts typically need more touchups over time.

On the other hand, Wallpaper has greater upfront costs for the paper and installation materials. However, wallpaper lasts longer than paint, which reduces the costs of future investment. If you are looking to get the most out of your investment, removable wallpaper is an obvious choice. You can take it down easily, and even save it to be used again in the future or on a different wall completely.

Art Deco Wallpaper for Home

Art Deco Trend in Wallpaper

Worldwide, popularity of the art deco trend has been rising. Let's take a look at how these designs as wallpaper can be used.

Evoke Glam and Opulence

We read that the Art Deco trend was born in the height of the machine age, which is why metallic touches and colours are evident in such designs.

We also find many curved, dome shapes in art deco designs. Like the Arch Decor wallpaper below, it gives rooms an instant refresh and that touch of glam without being too overpowering.

How to Create a Cosy Home with Wallpaper

Tips for Creating a Cosy Home with Wallpaper

There is nothing quite like going back to a home which is comforting and cosy.

More than ever before, in present times, we are all spending a lot more time at home. It is all the more worthwhile to invest time and effort to make the home one which you would want to spend your time in.

1. Play with Textures

When we think of adding texture to our homes we instantly think of a fluffy throw or a chunky rug, but that isn’t the only way.

Enter textured wallpapers- they are understated yet instantly add texture, depth and definition to your walls. Subtle patterns in these wallpapers add colour, detail and warmth.

2. Use Deeper Tones

 

A common misconception of cosy homes is that one must style with neutrals. Wallpapers with dark backgrounds however, instantly conveys a different feel, enveloping a room's occupants in a seemingly warm embrace.
