As I mentioned a few days ago, we’re going to be shuffling the kiddos together into their shared room over the coming months, and while we’re not really in any rush, I’ve started gathering little bits and pieces slowly, so we don’t have to pay out for everything in one go.

The bedding in particular was giving me a proper headache; I’d featured a star print set by H&M Home on the blog, but when I went back to actually buy it, it was sold out. Gah! So then began my long and tiring search for great gender neutral bedding that was a) not too loud b) not too age directed (I don’t want to have to change the bedding again when they get a bit older) and c) was ideally not over £25. It was a challenge, to say the least, but I finally decided on the triangle set and zig-zag set, both from Wilkinsons, pictured above. As well as being beautifully geometric and suitable in a mixed-sex bedroom, they were also both only £9 each – and I guess if I’m honest, that was the real clincher!

    I love the chevron design, I'm considering black and white for Ebony's bedroom when I manage to cobble together the pennies to sort it out. x

    What a bargain! And such a good idea to choose covers that aren't age dependent. Cherry and Tiger share a room and we are planning to upsize their beds soon will need to start thinking about this, although given Cherry's obsession with pink I will have a hard job trying to get her to choose anything else! x

    Oh I must get back to a Wilkos – our nearest is Leeds. Great selection and I can report that we have that b/w ikea cushion and it goes nicely in the girls room amid the pink and yellow so deffo unisex. P.S I keep misreading the title of this post as gender-bending – ha!
