Decorating you’re kids room with paints and wallpaper can transform a nondescript bedroom into a world of colour and set your child’s imagination alive. Whatever the chosen scheme you’ll want to embellish it with accessories, a printed border or perhaps a mural. Another way to set the style is by using a poster or art print which will tie-together the various colours, shapes and ideas of your theme. A suitable piece of wall art can also be an effective and inexpensive way of developing your child’s interest in art generally which may be maintained throughout their life.
A piece of children’s wall art needn’t be elaborate or even artistic it can be a simple poster, a reproduction print or a framed canvas print. Popular themes for children’s wall art tend include zoo animals, fairies, ballerinas, classic Disney characters and transport subjects such as cars, trains and planes.
