    Default Couple use children's drawings as wallpaper

    In Amsterdam, a Dutch couple based its décor on a range of noncolors, using blacks and whites, asphalt, variations of gray, earth tones, and light — skillfully (and daringly) playing with blends and mismatches. In the playroom, they used the dark colors but made a bold move by wallpapering with their children's drawings.


    Rather than letting their children run loose with fabric markers on a muslin sofa, they made large-format, black-and-white photocopies of their children's artwork and adhered them to the wall in a repeat, much like traditional wallpaper. This technique gives the children a sense of involvement in their home, without sacrificing taste. You may not have kids of your own, and maybe you find the drawings a bit unpolished. But, you can still use this technique of wallpapering photocopies with illustrations or imagery that's more refined. Just make sure there's a theme that runs through each image uniting them, such as the color scheme here.

    I like the wallpaper. I'm not feeling the rest of the room though...that giant pencil is super tacky as a decoration.

    i think it's probably for the kids to play with?

    i like it. i'm a huge fan of non colours and punctuating with touches of colour.

    It's very retro and the wallpaper has been properly designed with a 'repeat' pattern even if the designs were originally taken from kid's drawings. It's not like the kids scribbled on the walls. In the right room and the right context I like it but not in my house thanks.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
