It’s been a month since Little B moved into BB’s bedroom, and I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on the décor to help make sibling bedroom sharing a success.
I’m a flowers and bunting sort of a person and am a sucker for anything personalised so was like a child in a sweet shop when new gifting website IJustLoveIt.co.uk got in touch and invited me to choose some customised items for their room (pictured).
The site, which launched in July, features everything from LED wall lights in letters, hearts and stars to personalised children’s books and engraved jewellery. If, like me, you’re a fan of notonthehighstreet, then you’ll love this: it’s a treasure trove of hand and custom-made gifts from independent sellers all under one roof, or website.
Keen to stamp BB and Little B’s personalities – and their names – on their shared bedroom and after much debating (there’s so much to choose from!) I settled on a pair of handmade wooden name plaques for their bedroom door (£9.99) and a matching set of wall stickers to go above their beds.
I was so impressed with the plaques: they came beautifully wrapped in tissue paper (I just love it when something I’ve bought comes wrapped up like a present!) and are hand painted to a really high standard. They look so cute hanging side by side.
I really love the idea of personalised wall stickers too – I hadn’t seen anything like this before. For £23.99 you can personalise any name in a choice of four colours in two designs.
Although actually getting the stickers on the wall in a straight line was rather fiddly (Misery Guts’s already short fuse would have run out had he done it) it was totally worth the effort.
The problem now is I just can’t stop. I keep seeing things I’d like to add to their room. Must. Rein. Myself. In.
