10 Best: ideas for a robot-themed room

Clifford Richards robot clock

In the 50s, pretty much everyone believed that robots would be commonplace in every home by the year 2000, and I have to admit, having grown up with Tomorrow’s World in the 80s, I kinda hoped it would be true, too.

By Graziela farm poster

I don’t know a toddler who isn’t enamoured of Old Macdonald, so a farm-themed room is a bit of a no brainer. Colourful and fun, it works brilliantly for boys or girls and you can ramp up the tractor count if you’ve got a petrolhead on your hands. I took this fantastic print from ByGraziela […]

Very Cool Animal Lighting at Leigh Harmer

Natalie writes… Great children’s room lighting that dodges the run of the mill, over commercial bullet, is not easy to come by but I have found these really great animal lights made from lightweight polypropylene. Scottish designed, they can sit on a side table or on the floor and make great companion ‘pets’. They’re safe […]
