Step-by-step guide

Feed your child’s imagination and bring their favourite tales to life by transforming their space into a fairytale world.

Set the scene by transforming their walls into cloud-studded skies, add a teepee hideaway and plenty of scatter cushions, and they’ll have their very own storybook corner. Whether they like to read alone or together, this bedroom theme will encourage them to start the next chapter of their literary adventures.

Turning their walls from a blank page to a blue sky is easy – read on for our step-by-step guide:

1) Paint your wall in Blue Babe.

2) Using chalk, roughly mark out your cloud shapes.

3) Fill your cloud outlines in roughly with Jasmine White using an emulsion brush – and don’t worry about neat edges.

4) Use two big elastic bands to make two paint stippling pads.

5) Dip one sponge pad in a little Jasmine White and soften the edges of the clouds.

6) Dip the other sponge tin a little Polished Pebble or Goose Down to add a bit of cloudy shadow and depth to finish off your clouds.
