Your child’s room is more than a bedroom. It’s the setting for rip-roaring adventures, the place where they learn and, above all, the safe haven where they can take refuge. Creating the perfect space for them is a rare pleasure but sourcing the right products – especially the little details that really make your child’s room their own – can be expensive and time-consuming. Thankfully, there’s John Lewis: fulfilling your child’s dreams couldn’t be easier, thanks to its vast selection of gorgeous child friendly products. From furniture and lighting to pyjamas and toys, you can find everything you need under one roof. They even stock wallpaper, blinds and fabrics – all offering the great quality and long lifespan John Lewis is known for.
Their children’s collection is packed with fabulous ideas to suit different ages. The secret is to choose staples that can grow with your children, such as a clean-lined bedstead, and decorate with colours, patterns and textures that will inspire them at each stage of their life.
Take the Little Fairy range, for example: layered over simple white furniture, the pretty patchwork quilt, butterfly-studded cushions and fairy duvet set will turn any room into a magical world in an instant. Meanwhile, seafaring captains and enchanting mermaids will be right at home in a room full of maps, portholes and marine creatures, including a mighty shark bean chair, and older boys will love the Marvel collection featuring the world’s greatest superheroes.
But the John Lewis range is as friendly to mums as it is exciting for children, thanks to plenty of clever storage and space-saving solutions. High sleeper beds and double duty furniture – such as a chair that converts into an extra bed – are ideal to make the most of space, as are bean cubes in vibrant shades, which provide extra seating when needed but can be tidied away in the evening.
You'll also find handy tubs and LEGO storage bricks that make tidying away easier for your children, as well as bedroom-door hooks for fancy dresses, and beautiful lidded chests to tuck away those all-important toys - after all, a neat room is key to a good night's sleep. And to keep out the light, John Lewis have the perfect finishing touch: a huge selection of fabrics in fabulous designs that can be turned into curtains and blinds. With an enchanted garden or glow-in-the-dark stars dressing up the bedroom windows, bedtime has never been so much fun.
Create an enchanting room with John Lewis' delightful Little Fairy range. Mix and match bedlinen from this sorbet-hued collection with colourful throws, scatter cushions and pretty prints - John Lewis' 3D framed print of little butterflies is particularly lovely. Choose a pendant light in a matching shade and add a floating shelf for your child's treasures. Don't forget to showcase their favourite pictures and artwork to nurture their creativity.
