Whimsical & Unique: Infuse Art into Your Child’s Space (and Yours!) with These Posters from Mrs Mighetto

I can still remember the thrill of choosing the decor for the first time for my childhood bedroom. Around the age of five, my parents generously gave me free reign in the wallpaper department of a homeware store. Pouring over the options I vividly remember selecting the wallpaper that most appealed to the children’s section. Being an aficionado for cute animals, I went for some Beatrix Potter wallpaper that featured whimsical scenes of her best-loved characters. This was paired with candy pink stripes on the lower half of the walls, all separated by a border with more Potter illustrations. 

At night I lay in bed surrounded by the familiar faces MrsTiggy-Winkle, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Squirrel Nutkin, I felt like I was looking at old friends. When I reached pre-teen age, my wallpaper was replaced with a lick of lilac paint, but the memory of Potter’s charming characters keeping me company in those formative years has never left, and holds a special place in my mind.

It goes without saying that the art that decorates nursery walls, and the walls in our homes, can inspire children’s imaginations and developing minds. What we see in our formative years can create fond memories and inspire creativity to last a lifetime. 

Mrs. Mighetto is a Swedish brand founded upon this ethos, specialising in wallpaper, posters and books that are full of fantasy, history and mystery. The founders, Malin and Anna, are talented artists whose beloved illustrations have attracted a dedicated following – 132,000  on Instagram to be precise. The love for Mrs. Mighetto was instant: the first collection, named ‘Superheroes’ which was launched in October 2014, sold out in less than two weeks. Today, the collection of products is sold in more than 20 countries, in over 150 stores. 

Characterised by expressive doe eyes and charming features borrowed from woodland creatures, each illustrated personality from the Mrs. Mighetto universe has their own story and personality. Take Miss Bibi, an enchanting character with rabbit ears and pretty pink dress.

The blurb accompanying her print reveals she is “caring, brave, and above all kind. It may be why she acquired the exceptional gift of finding answers in the inner landscape of her own dreams. Many consider her wise…no mystery proves too daunting, and nothing discourages our whimsical detective Bibi.”

Each character is special to Malin and Anna and once hung in a home, will become part of your family story too. 

That being said, Mrs. Mighetto’s art isn’t just for family homes – the neutral pared-down colour palettes used is suited to all interiors.

The thought-provoking Lady Cornelia print features a lone female, back turned, gazing into a woodland, and comes with a powerful message.

Inspired by the 9,000 women in Sweden alone who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, the poster is accompanied by this powerful narrative: “The parking lot looks the same, but my world has collapsed. I turn up the seat heating hoping to stop shaking. I study the way he shifts weight. The way he pulls his beard. The small things that are evident. Crystal clear. He bought coconut cake. My favourite. Today, it tasted like nothing. It sticks to the roof of my mouth. I eat it anyway. A tasteless gratitude. We don’t touch each other. We just sit there, side by side, crying. Together, each with our own heavy cloud of anxiety over our heads.” A donation 25 SEK will made to cancer research from the sale of each print. 

There is a complete series of ‘Lady’ prints on the Mrs. Mighetto site that can be collected and displayed throughout a home. In these series we meet characters including Lady Dagmar, Lady Dolores, Lady Dixie and our favourite – Lady Daphne – a beautiful, mysterious figure whose full identity is concealed by a mask. This feminine, whimsical painting would be a fitting painting for a dressing room, or hung on a bedroom wall above a headboard. 

When you buy a piece of Mrs. Mighetto art, whether it’s a roll of wallpaper, art print, poster or a book, you are buying into so much more than just a print. You’re buying into a story, a character and the opportunity to inspire a dreaming mind. Invite your children to pick some art for their walls, just like my parents did, and inspire a memory to last for a lifetime.
