Home Design advisor, John Lewis Peterborough
You can really let your imagination run riot and have some fun when designing rooms for children, but if you need some inspiration, we have so much to choose from
The Little Home Collection has a fabulous range of furniture and co-ordinated bedding, curtains, blinds and accessories to help you create the perfect bedroom for your little one. With rugs, throws, cushions, lighting - even towels included, you can go for full on Little Fairies or all-out nautical if you wish!
You can also mix and match the themes, as various stories cleverly complement each other, enabling you to create something more unique. The Waves & Whales Stripe curtains work just as well with the Robotica bedlinen as do the Little Fairy Flowers curtains with the Dots & Dolls set! Why choose one duvet cover when you could have two?
When decorating the room, keep it light and bright. Don't be afraid to mix things up a bit - you won't go wrong if you match up the colours from your chosen bedding or curtains. Try a bold combination of orange, lime & navy or enliven pastel pink with aqua and magenta.
Create a space that evolves with your child as their tastes and interests change. Opt for furniture you can update as they get older.
When it comes to windows, whether it's for toddlers or teens, blackout is essential. All curtains & blinds in the ‘Little Home' range are blackout. There are also more options in our wider readymade and 7Day made to order assortments. Remember to be safety conscious: keep beds away from windows and ensure blind cords are secured and out of reach from little fingers.
