Give your budding nature lovers an update that'll feed their fascination with creatures great and small with this lily pad motif.

We used this effect in Frankie's bedroom makeover on the ceiling, but if you're looking for an easier way to use these at home, it looks great as a feature wall, or you could do it behind the bed so that the lily pads frame the bedhead. Wherever you decide to put them, they will surely put a hop in your little one's step.
