Wall stickers and wall decals for children…………..

If you are designing your children’s room or babies nursery, the question might arise; What should I put on the walls ? Shall I paint them using a specific colour theme or should I add little details with fun wall posters? Alternatively you might think about using wall stickers to add that poetic touch or finishing detail to a bedroom or nursery theme.

When we launched French Blossom, the house and design section was one of the first areas we looked into as we knew providing a careful yet selective variety of stickers and other forms of wall decoration would be very important to our audience.

Growing up I remember on the walls of my bedroom I had lots of fun wall posters but not too many stickers There was just not the wonderful choice that you have today ! Now you can find childrens wall stickers in almost every shape, size and colour. You can find designs that are original, fun and perfect for almost every room of the home. The way many wall stickers are fabricated today is also very important. Obviously stickers can be stuck to walls but now many can even be stuck directly to furniture and even glass windows, adding an interesting dimension to any scene you may wish to create.

When choosing wall stickers for a room, be sure to check they can be removed easily and will not leave unpleasant sticky residue behind ! Many of the designs that we have chosen at French Blossom can be removed and replaced in alternative positions if you choose to change the design! All the stickers at our boutique can be removed with a damp cloth.

Childrens wall stickers today either come in flat packs, rolled up in tubes or loose in packets. I think my favourite wall stickers are those that are laser cut and that can be positioned however the user wishes in order to create a really original scene. A great example of this is with the hot air balloon wall sticker at French Blossom. This arrives in a roll but each hot air balloon, cloud and bird can be individually cut out and stuck on a wall to create a unique wall decoration.

Another popular form of wall stickers are wall friezes. These are long, stretched out stickers that can fill the length of a wall and even around corners. A great example of one of these is the circus wall sticker. This is not only a frieze but has individual elements that can be positioned in an original manner.
Glow in the dark wall stickers are another wonderful idea for wall decoration. Many of these are almost invisible to the eye in the day and then when the lights are turned off in the night, they come alive and bring a glow to any room !


Cube cushions for babies and children…………………

When the rain decided to pause for a few hours last week and the sun made a rare yet welcome appearance, we took the opportunity to snap a few images of these fun Mimi Lou cushions.
Made in France these cubes make a really fun gift idea and are new in our section gift ideas for babies !  These cube cushions for babies and young children have a little rattle in the middle and each surface has a lovely brightly coloured illustration.  My personal favorite is the little bird!
