Bedrooms of London

Back to Giving Page

One in four children in London live in poverty and too many in extreme deprivation, sleeping on mouldy mattresses in homes with no heating or hot water. All of this can lead to awful consequences for their education and life choices with emotional and physical side effects too.

The wonderful charity ‘Decorate A Child’s Life’ is the @childhoodtrust volunteer programme that has been set up to make a difference to these children’s lives by providing them with safe and welcoming environments to learn, play and grow.

I’m so happy to now be involved by teaming up with @cramerandbell to frame offcuts of my wallpapers as art work for various rooms and in a few up and coming projects, donate full rolls to cover larger wall areas. As soon as we are allowed to mix indoors again, I will be on site during installation days and hope to show you all the incredible work that the charity is doing. In the meantime, here are some before and after images when @katharinepooleyltd and her amazing design team volunteered to completely redesign these children’s bedrooms. The transformation as you can see is unbelievable and totally changed the well-being and security of the families involved.
