Tout Petit: Wallpaper for kids

There’s a party in the woods! The sound of giggles is coming from behind the trees. A squirrel waits
expectantly on his branch, deer and little bears frolic around elatedly. Will you come and play? In the world of Tout Petit, the sun is always shining. Tout Petit is a very cute wallpaper collection for kids from Eijffinger. Two of my old classmates worked on this collection so that makes it extra special to show it here to you guys. One of them is Marly Huibregtse and the other one (maybe you recognize her sweet drawn dolls) Margo Slingerland. They both studied with me at The Design Academy and for years we were in the same class at the Man & Identity department. It was a small class with approximately 12 to 15 young women. Yes you read that right: "women" no men. It was the department at the Academy which was focused on styling and branding and somehow very few men did attend this department. Sometimes a brave (male) soul joined us, but it never lasted very long. The group we had was very ambitious and talented. We all worked so hard the 4/5 years during our study. When a evaluation was coming up the tension was rising and by the time the evaluation was there we all were a wreck due to lack of sleep and good food, not to mention the stress we were having. So you can believe that when one of us got a bad review emotions were running high. Luckily we all survived this period of hard work and full dedication and it’s very nice to see that we are all finding our way in the world of design. It’s always nice to see what my old classmates make and I do like to show some of it here once in a while. I like this wallpaper collection and love it that it’s perfectly for kids and that it’s nice for grown up eyes as well (that is something we can’t say of every item designed for a kids room: I dread the day that my son wants a Spiderman duvet cover in his perfectly styled room…). Which wallpaper is your favourite?
