Walls to thrill


Think wall decals are for wimps? If you want to make a statement in the kids’ room and reckon that a removable owl and tree is tame, look no further than Funky Little Darlings for a huge, very loud interior design statement.

Funky Little Darlings is based in the UK and was set up by Mandy Colliss and David Quinton. When they first began, Colliss and Quinton specialised in bespoke children’s murals. However, the look on people’s faces as they turned up for their eleventh consecutive day of mural painting persuaded them to seek an alternative. And so began the duo’s colourful, detailed, almost cartoon-like wallpaper murals.

Funky Little Darlings continue to work on commission however they also have a large range of canvases and wallpaper murals ready-to-hang. The designs are bright, quirky and amazing. Although the fluoro dandelion and the psychedelic tree designs appeal to me, I think the surf scene and the VW cars really fill a gap in the market for interior design options for young boys.

Canvases and wallpaper murals are priced according to size and can be shipped to Australia.
