This sweet Beautiful Princess and White Unicorn wall mural is the perfect choice for young dreamers. According to some unicorn experts (yes, they exist), humans have loved unicorns since their earliest incarnations in ancient Greek texts.
Back then, people would travel for miles and miles just to try and get a glimpse of this mystical creature. And today, our obsession continues…
Psychology tells us that unicorn fans believe that anything is possible, so if you want your little one to reach for the stars, this is a great mural to inspire them. Unicorns also represent goodness, happiness and peace, which sends positive vibes all around.
2. Underwater wallpaper for submarine vibes

See how many fish they can name (parents, feel free to Google different fish species beforehand) and let them turn their rooms into fully-fledged imaginary play zones to show off to their friends. They’ll be the envy of their pals and sleepovers will be epic.
3. Wildlife wallpaper made for storytelling

A bedtime story doesn’t just help children settle in for the night. It’s a fantastic tool for helping kids get familiar with sounds, words and language. It also sparks your child’s imagination and stimulates their curiosity – and this is what drives their appetite for learning new things.
And what better way to implement bedtime storytelling than with a stunning visual like this adorable Noah’s Ark Jumbo mural by Adrian Chesterman? From the imposing lions and towering giraffes to the swinging orangutans high up in the trees, this landscape is full of things to feast their eyes on.
Convey the tale of Noah’s Ark or conjure up your own narrative about what each animal is doing in this scene. With so much going on, you’ll never run out of anecdotes!
4. Galaxy wallpaper to inspire the inquisitive

Another wallpaper for kids by Adrian Chesterman that we can’t get enough of is this mind-blowing Planets In Space mural. It’s the sort of space wallpaper that makes you go “wow”, whether you’re a kid or a grownup. After all, who isn’t fascinated by exobiology and outer space?
If your child is mad about science and physics, loves all things astronomy, and is set to be the next Buzz Aldrin or Tim Peake, this mural is for them.
We love this planet wallpaper trend because it’s out of this world, and galactic wallpapers are suitable for children of all ages, even into their teens.

Motivate their sense of adventure and exploration with a jungle-themed wallpaper. This fairy tale Meet the Imaginaries mural by Philip Straub combines beautiful botanicals with cheeky trolls for a touch of fantasy and magic.
Greenery is also a big nursery interior trend this year and is a great way to bring the beauty of the outdoors in. By giving kudos to plants and wildlife, you can show your little ones how important it is to respect and protect our planet.
7. Dinosaur wallpaper to take them back in time
Mural in photo: Tiny Saurus and Ladybird
Our vast collection of dinosaur murals are suitable for kids of all ages, although very young children may find the teethy grin of a realistic T-Rex scary! But this particular mural (Tiny Saurus and Ladybird) plays on the cuteness of a miniature T-Rex, one that is lost in a flowerbed where he meets his new friend, The Ladybird.
Think Honey I Shrunk the Kids (but a paleontology version). Kids will love this dinosaur wallpaper design, and it’s even been said that a dino obsession in children can lead to better attention span, and deeper information-processing skills!
8. Cartoon town wallpaper for endless fun
