Choo choo! You don’t need to go anywhere near Thomas the Tank Engine to achieve a first class kids’ room that’s just the ticket. Move along down, please!Â Firm favourites Ferm Living come up trumps on the wallpaper front with their Tiny Train design, Â£59, Koko Kids.
Love these Galt room dividers – be great for creating a book nook. Not cheap at Â£269.95, but a lot of fun and bound to last a good few years.
If you have a genuine rail enthusiast on your hands you’re going to need to invest in a train play table or mat. I’m liking this one from Be Active, Â£34.95 – suitable for all popular wooden sets.
There’s a plethora of rail art around, but I’m rather taken by HappyDoodleLand’s off-the-wall interpretation with a jolly elephant acting as the train. You can also personalise it, should you like that sort of thing. About Â£13, plus Â£5 p&p to the UK, Etsy.
I know this Paul Smith wallhanging is prohibitively expensive, but I couldn’t leave it out due to its sheer amazingness. There is a royal carriage and a panda, after all… Â£1,295, The Rug Company.
For bedding, there can only be one option – ByGraziela‘s iconic train print. And, now they do pyjamas as well you can be all matchy matchy at bedtime. Plus the wall organiser is pretty nifty, too. Â£52.50 for a single set.
Yes, it’s traditional, but I can’t help loving this animal train night light. It’s also pretty hypnotic and that’s got to be a good thing at bedtime, no? Â£36.99, Alphabet Gifts.
This acrylic mirror, Â£5.99, from Lolliepop (sic) Kids is a quick, simple and cheap way to add a bit of steam power to your little one’s room.
How fabulous is this cushion? Made from an upcycled linen tea towel by London-based Hunted & Stuffed (best company name ever?) it features a vintage map of the history of British railway.Â Â£32, Folksy.
For a finishing flourish, you could do far worse than the singularly stylish wooden Milwaukee Express by Our Children’s Gorilla. Actually, this would look quite at home on my mantelpiece… Â£149, Rume.
