Belle, bless her cotton socks, has always maintained a dream of having an elegantly co-ordinated bedroom, with furniture that matches, and accessories in beautifully soft pinks and greens. What she actually has is an old trunk that we’ve reupholstered about four times, a dressing table I bought on eBay, which Belle then painted white, and some old tin cans that she has painted with pink wood paint, to keep her make-up brushes in.
I call it vintage chic.
Belle calls it Mummy not caring enough to buy her proper furniture.
Life is subjective.
If you’re the kind of parent who really does want to do more than just shut the door on your kid’s bedroom and pretend it’s not there, then this is the competition for you my friends – step on up!
I’m giving away £150 of your finest British pounds to spend with Ollie & Leila, a rather lovely online store specialising in children’s beds, mattresses, bedroom furniture and accessories. They sell the sort of thing that Belle is probably coming to realise, now aged 14, will never appear in her room, because instead I have spent all my money on house plants and mini-breaks.
You might choose to put your prize towards something grand, like their fabulous upholstered bed, (available in a range of colours), with multi-coloured buttons, or the very sweet Leila Heart Petal Bed, which can be personalised with your child’s name. Ollie & Leila are big on personalising stuff – it’s definitely something that makes them a bit special.
Perhaps you’ll get your little darling a trunk, to store all their toys in, (or to shut them in for a joke when they are naughty.) Or maybe you’ll spend it on some lovely new bedding, like this super quilt, (RRP £80):
The choice, fair reader, is yours.
