Griffin & Plumb’s new children’s environmentally conscious range of wallpapers, fabrics and limited edition prints.
Written in the stars,
and The American dream
with coordinating stars, stripes and dotty.
Growing up in the 70s and 80s, my room had the uninspiring wood chip painted white, however I recall with great fondness the rooms of my friends. I’d spend hours looking at their characters and creating little adventures for them to go on. It was very much a part of childhood, and we wanted to recreate that. Taking our influences from vintage wallpaper, books and objects from the 70s and 80s.
Wallpapers were first designed for children in the Victorian era, and were at first educational. The very first designs were mainly nature inspired, we have retained this, but added the whimsical. In our “Written In The Stars” mural there are the ancient tales of “The King and Queen Of The Night” We have included these tales to be read to children, to become a part of a bedtime routine. Familiarity being a real part of the comforting environment needed for a child to flourish.
We believe that surrounding a child with beautiful, magical wallpapers help develop children’s imaginations, storytelling and appreciation of nature. Griffin & Plumb, designing spaces to play and dream.
