The Whimsical Collection by Cole and Son is a magical and nostalgic range of wallpapers which looks splendid in many different rooms in the home. The childhood-inspired range is a beautiful choice for nurseries and children’s bedrooms but the unique and elegant style of each of the designs in this range means they can be used in any room in the home. Enchanted and imaginative, the Whimsical Collection by Cole and Son has been inspired by the fairy tales of our childhood. Some of the most recognisable characters, wonderful tales and nostalgia are brought back to life in this collection.
More figurative and abstract than simply illustrating characters, the Whimsical Collection is inspired by the stories of our youth. There are fifteen designs in total and they incorporate everything from simple waves and diamonds to fairy tale forests. It is the chance to add a little enchantment to any space in your home and the range of papers available gives a choice of colourways and styles too. The beauty of the Whimsical Collection is that it can fit into your existing interior but the wallpapers are also bold and vivid enough to be the inspiration behind the design of a whole room.
Cole and Son is one of the UK’s leading and most recognisable wallpaper design companies. They have been designing original and beautiful patterns since their foundation in 1875. The company has always been forward thinking and incorporating the latest printing and design techniques to ensure beautiful styles are effectively rendered and created. They have amassed one of the most significant print archive collections in the whole of the country. A combination of over 1800 wooden printing blocks and 350 screen printed designs allows Cole and Son to have a huge wealth of inspiration to draw upon. Their time in the industry means they have striking examples of almost every design period from the 18th through to the early 20th century. In the Whimsical Collection they use this creative flair and experience to recreate the memories of childhood and the enchantment of fairy tales.
The charm of children’s theatre and literature is brought alive in the Whimsical Collection. The Titania Wallpaper takes its inspiration from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and features a delicate small-scale harlequin motif, combined with soft textured metallics. The magical Woods and Stars wallpaper draws from the Cole and Son archive and incorporates their well-known Woods design, with their Stars design to create a captivating forest scene. Fun, bold and packed with character, Punchinello is one of the signature designs in the Whimsical Collection. A large-scale harlequin design features vivid contrasting colours and a true sense of fun.
Taking its inspiration from childhood but not limited to the design of children’s rooms, the Whimsical Collection charms anyone who browses it. Each of the individual designs has been created with close care and attention, to evoke memories of childhood whilst adding elegance and just a touch of magic to your interior.
