3 Of The Best

Lightboxes

Now, I’m aware that lightboxes have become a little bit of an interiors cliche, because they’ve been EVERYWHERE for the past couple of years. Particularly the DIY letter types that you can customise with your own thoughts/shopping lists/mantras. They’re cute but they’ve become a little too ubiquitous methinks.

Daphne has four different sources of lighting in her room, plus a Gro Clock, so sadly I’m not sure we can squeeze anything else in. However, I am thinking of swapping her rather boring nightlight for one of these fun designs – if I can decide which…

Despite suffering a little from over-exposure, lightboxes are still a really fun way to add lighting to a kids’ room, and there are some really fab designs out there. As I’ve probably said a thousand times, I’m a sucker for quirky lighting and I love the fact that in a child’s room, you’ve basically got carte blanche to go a bit mad. Lightboxes are a really affordable way of doing this, and in today’s post I wanted to think outside the box (sorry, couldn’t resist) and go for something different. So, here are my top three lightboxes, if you’re looking for something a little more unusual (and can’t think what to spell out yourself!)…

I was sent a press release from Sgt Smith about their quirky personalised dinosaur lightboxes, and couldn’t resist them. There are a choice of colours available, and you can add your child’s ‘dinosaur’ name to the design. Handmade in Huddersfield, each lightbox has a wired electrical connection, and is designed to sit on a flat surface, providing a soft sidelight.

On another scale entirely, how amazing is this lightbox? From Oakdene Designs, it depicts Planet Earth in all its glory, and is probably designed for grown ups, but I think older children would love it. There’s also a moon version available. Very cool for any budding astronauts out there…

Last but not least, another beauty by A Little Lovely Company. The Lightbox Frame from This Modern Life is an interchangeable poster frame with LED lights behind, meaning you can change the look as often as you like. There are lots of sets of posters available – from cute animals like this little panda to inspirational sayings. It’s perfect for little kids who can get involved and choose which poster to display, but there are also some adorable nursery-themed posters available, so it works well as a nightlight too. It’s also currently half price – bonus!
