I sat down with our artist, Shannon Berg from Isla Dream Prints and our stylist, Ainslee Blades from Lumi and Co to talk all things kids’ interiors.
My creative journey began with makeup and face paint. Using these mediums to create whimsical looks on my clients at any given opportunity, and observing the excited reactions of children I had painted at events, I have always loved sharing my creativity with others.
WE'D LOVE TO HEAR THE STORY BEHIND ISLA DREAM...
After the birth of my second child Isla, I decided to move from skin to paper and create my own little piece of fairy-tale, this is when Isla Dream started to come to life.
All my artwork is hand drawn by myself in Sydney Australia, and printed on luxurious quality papers and fabric. I am passionate about providing my customers with high quality products that can be treasured for many years and handed down through generations.
My characters are designed to add comfort, joy and magic to your children’s bedrooms and lives. Their little smiles and reactions are what keep me creating!
SPRING FLING IS DIVINE, HOW DID YOU BRING IT TO LIFE? WHERE DID YOUR INSPO COME FROM?
My Spring Fling wallpaper come to life after creating a series of children’s prints in similar colours. I wanted to make something fun, happy and colourful to tie the whole collection together. I wanted versatility, and for it to work both in a play space as well as a bedroom. But mostly I wanted something that would make kids smile when they looked at it. I hope you love it!
