Katie Bourne Children’s Wallpapers

I recently spoke at 100% Design in London and while there, I walked around to check out the latest and greatest in the world of design and it was with pleasure that I met Katie Bourne of Katie Bourne Interiors. This charming illustrator was there to launch her exclusive children’s wallpapers based on her own childhood memories of growing up in rural Staffordshire, England. These wallcoverings are made and printed in England using traditional techniques on high quality, sustainable forest paper in gorgeous classic colorways that are soothing and lovely.

About the small collection Katie says, “I thought about my friends and what they like when I was designing the range. My collection is created for parents who are design conscious and want the nursery to be an extension of their home’s design concept, whilst being something that their children can love growing up with too” Katie explains.

Katie’s inspiration came from traditional children’s books and her own childhood, “This collection really feels like an extension of me. The characters and scenes have been taken from scenes of my childhood; from the farm I grew up on, and fields I used to play in, to birthday celebrations and outings with my family and friends; they all stemmed from personal experiences,” Katie explained. Her goal in designing this range was to infuse it with not only her own past and personality but to feed children’s imaginations so that they may be able to create their own stories while looking upon it, or that parents could have a jumping off point and do some storytelling of their own.

    Soft faded colors and nostalgic touch to the artwork on the paper….this would be great in a vintage nursery or kid’s bedroom. Love the designs, especially knowing the inspiration comes from childhood memories. Beautiful work!
