Paper packed with a punch from Victoria Cramsie at Paperboy


When it comes to wallpapering a boy’s bedroom the choices are pretty limited (unless you like cartoon cowboys, pirates or Ben 10!) This was the problem Victoria Cramsie faced when it was time to leave her 6-year-old twin son’s nursery themed bedroom behind. Not wanting to redecorate again in a couple of years she set about finding the perfect design, but with little luck. She wanted a classic yet iconic wallpaper with a hand-made look. Eventually she gave up and decided to design what she was looking for herself and ‘Paperboy’ was born.

Victoria wanted Rory and Archie’s room to be as stylish as the rest of the house and ‘be a room they could be proud of’. She wanted ‘a place with designs and materials that sing, filled with colours and shapes that have a sense of harmony and intrigue’, so she set to work drawing edgy illustrations of skeletal animals, dragons and hand-shadow puppets, which the boys loved and soon she had a range that would appeal to young pre-school boys right through to teenagers.

The latest design to be launched  is ‘How it works’ with cute detailed illustrations of how the boxing kangaroo get’s it punch, giraffes get to stretch those long necks and just how elephants have such great memories. Check out the little people making them move inside!

Not content with answering the need for stylish wallpaper, Victoria has gone on to introduce beautiful linen fabrics with her designs on them to match her wallpaper. It’s boy heaven!
