The latest collection from Hibou Home is a delightful mix of whimsy, wit and wild characters. We adore every one of the three, Animal Parade, Into the Wild and Secret Garden and just wish we had enough children’s rooms to feature them all.
Into the Wild features block style prints (one could almost imagine them being made from potato stamps) of pine trees with friendly brown bears, wolves and elk roaming amongst them.
The line drawings of the animals are
a fabulous contrast to the block print pines, so that even the most pedantic of budding David Attenboroughs
will be inspired by this fabulously fun call to adventure
Great as either a feature wall or for an entire room, there are two muted colour ways that are perfect in a Scandinavian-inspired home.
With its delicate design featuring an array of exquisite birds, butterflies, flowers, toadstools and rabbits, Secret Garden’s muted palette makes it a versatile choice for decorating an entire room; you can then add punches of colour in accessories. A sophisticated yet dreamy print for a girl’s room that comes in three subtle colour ways.
Described as “a pageant of animal troubadours”, Animal Parade features silhouettes of a troupe of animal musicians, dancing creatures, fireworks and circus tents that will hopefully inspire even the youngest of children to wake up every day ready to parade happily into the day. Available in gorgeous pinks, greens and blues, this is a divine feature wall option and would also look fabulous in a nursery (plus, if you haven’t opted to learn the gender, the gorgeous green will be perfect).
Designer Details Hibou was born in reaction to the loud colours and garish designs of most children’s wallpaper. Instead, Hibou mixes a palette of muted, Scandinavian inspired tones to bring sophistication to the walls of children’s rooms. The Kent-based (UK) company was founded in late 2011 and was quickly picked up by luxury department store Liberty of London. Hibou now also produces a range of fabric. You can also meet the maker in our Creator Q&A with founder and designer Emma Lycett.
