High vs Low - Patterned Animal Silhouettes

Yes my High vs Low posts have been MIA for a while but they are back!

The much-admired original oversized animal and tree wallpaper decals featured in many nursery & children's room designs in Europe are by a company called Inke from the Netherlands.

The decals run around $150 per animal and come in an assortment of patterns and colors. Clients love them because they are oversized, colorful and playful. They are not stick-on decals and are more like actual wallpaper so cannot be easily peeled off the wall by your child. The Inke wallpaper decals are available in shapes such as monkeys, tigers, birds, cats, giraffes, alligators, birds and trees.
Now Pottery Bard Kids has jumped on the decal bandwagon for a while now. But now they have come out with their own version of oversized animal decals.

The animals in the Lily Animal Decal Set are not as large and have more of a subdued pattern but at $189 for three elephants and three giraffes, the price is pretty darn good. The Peel-and-stick set is easy to apply and remove.

These would look lovely with some bedding like the Udaiper set from Rickshaw Design shown below.
