Measuring 5 metres, the circus wall sticker makes a cute little frieze above a cot, changing table or kid’s bed, and looks great against a bright white wall or wrapped around a corner. It’s an easy way of bringing a bit of circus fun to your child’s bedroom without committing to an all singing, all dancing circus theme – the wall sticker is easily removed when you little one is ready to move on.
How to enter to win the Mimi’lou Circus wall sticker:
1. Leave a comment below telling me where you envisage using the wall sticker.
3. Job done! Of course, if you’d like to say thanks to Petit Home, I’m sure they would love a ‘like’ from you too : )
The giveaway is open to UK residents only and closes 24th February 2013 at midnight. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.
Good luck everyone!
PS – If you’re not familiar with Petit Home and love modern French inspired kids’ decor – think powdery grey-pink-lilac-mauve palettes and whimsical touches - then definitely check out Petit Home’s children’s bedding and lighting selection.

Today I have an amazing competition to share with you… Photowall have teamed up with Room to Bloom to give away a made to measure wall mural worth up to £500 in a design of your choice! You can choose from one of their amazing mural and wallpaper designs or you can upload your own design. It’s a great way to create a feature wall in a nursery, kid’s room or playroom.
Wall murals are made to fit the exact dimensions of your wall. The design of your choice is made up of 45 cm wide numbered panels which are hung edge to edge to make up the complete image. Photowall offer two types of wall murals: the standard range, which is applied with paste onto the wall, and the self-adhesive range.
What you can win
The prize you can win today is for a design up to 4 metres long in the standard range for domestic use. You could choose a wall filling image that you love or choose a design that covers just part of the wall. I’ve selected some images with designs that I think work great in kids’ rooms, but you could choose anything from Photowall’s extensive library or design your own!
To enter the competition, here’s what to do:
1. Leave a comment below to tell me what type of mural you would go for to decorate your child’s space – I want to hear your ideas. There’s no “right” answer, the winner will be picked at random from all the entries. For inspiration visit Photowall’s website or have a look at the kids’ rooms I’ve selected which all feature photo wallpaper.
2. Go to Room to Bloom’s Facebook page and share the competition on your own Facebook page.
3. There is no number 3, leave a comment, share on Facebook, that’s it.
This Photowall competition is open to UK residents only. It closes 6 January 2013 at midnight. I will contact the winner by email and you have until the end of January to claim your prize. Best of luck everybody!
Design your own photo wallpaper
To get your creative juices flowing, here are a couple of ideas for design-your-own photo wallpaper that I spotted in Dutch magazines Ariadne at Home Kinderen and VT Wonen a while ago. Scale up a high-res image (scan or photograph) of a favourite piece of fabric and have this printed on wallpaper to create a feature wall. A vintage embroidery sampler was the source of the first image and you can see the fabric used for the wall in the second image on the chair in the foreground.
I hope you feel inspired to come up with a unique design of your own. There will only be one winner, but if you enter promotional code ‘roomroom0022‘ at the Photowall checkout before 13 January, you’ll receive a 10% discount.

Huge apologies to everyone who entered the giveaway for this customised storage house, and who has been waiting to hear who has won! I have been working very hard on a number of new projects since the the giveaway closed, and my blog has suffered a bit as I couldn’t find time to post. It’s time to put things right now… We have a winner!
The random generator picked number seven, meaning that Anna Nowinska-Boardman has won the house! I hope it will be a worthy new home for her daughter’s pebble collection.

Today you can win this colourful kids storage house! It’s perfect for little collections of stones, shells, hair things, beads, buttons, crafting bits, etc.
The cardboard house is from Cox & Cox and I customised it with different patterns of vintage wallpaper from Inke. The insert at the top shows what it looked like originally. If you would like to make your own, pick colours and patterns that fit in with your child’s room décor.
I cut out little squares of wallpaper, 0.5cm larger than the drawer fronts, and glued them onto the front of each drawer, folding the edges around the sides and top. I used spray mount adhesive, but you can use wallpaper glue, or any other paper glue instead.
HERE’S WHAT TO DO TO WIN THE STORAGE HOUSE (rabbit and carrots not included ; )
1. Leave a comment by clicking ‘leave comment’ at the bottom of this post, and tell me what you or your child would store in this little house.
2. Go to the Room to Bloom Facebook page to ‘Like’ us.
Done! The competition is open to UK residents only and will close Thursday 19th July at 12pm. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified by email. Good luck to everyone!

Do you know Petit Home? If not, do go and have a look. This sweet online shop specialises in decorative items for children’s spaces with a beautiful poetic touch. I particularly like the lighting section with of course my favourite bunny lamps, but also have a look at the prints from Famille Summerbelle, quilts from Petit Pan and these sweet Mimi’Lou wall stickers. You can browse by nursery, girl’s room or boy’s room. Enjoy!

The woodland trend for kids rooms has been going strong for a while and I still can’t get enough. Imagine my joy when I laid eyes on these animal wall stickers from Dutch company KEK Amsterdam. I think I squealed. These cute Forest Friends are photo realistic, which makes a nice contrast and stops rooms from becoming overly sweet. Spot the raccoon below!
All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog and tell me why you would like to adopt this little fellow. I’ll pick a winner in two weeks’ time (competition closes 19 March midnight) and announce the winner on this blog and by email. Good luck!
In case you haven’t heard about Hus & Hem before, do go and check it out. Owners Louise and Jill have put together a seriously drool-worthy collection of Scandinavian design, including some of my very favourites for children’s rooms, such as Rie Elise Larsen’s paper lampshades, Ingela Arrhenius’ gorgeous prints, and Betty Svensson’s retro floral fabric. Enjoy!
