19 clever ways to transform a kid’s room with wallpaper

Vintage and retro-inspired wallpapers have been trending in baby and children’s rooms for a while now, and it’s a style I really love. In recent years, the use of vintage wallpapers has been a popular look in creative Scandinavian nurseries, where print and pattern is used for a nostalgic patchwork of colour.

However, wallpaper can also be used with restraint to create a clean, minimalist look. Either way, there’s no end of possibilities with so many gorgeous new (and old) wallpaper designs on the market. Here are some of my favourite ways to transform a baby or children’s room with wallpaper.
