While character based murals are ideal for younger children, older ones often

prefer something more in keeping with their own interests or pastimes, particularly their favourite sports or teams.

Football themed bedrooms are particularly popular. Favourite players shirts can be featured with the child’s name alongside those of their heroes.

This can be particularly effective when combined with ‘off the shelf’ borders and appropriately coloured walls as seen in this Manchester United mural, or with bedding in the team colours as in the Chelsea room shown here. I have also recently painted badges for Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham supporters and these provide fantastic impact.
