John Lewis boys’ bedding – and win a bedroom makeover worth £1,000

There are two things guaranteed to influence a purchase for me: a good brand and a product named after a Beatles song…

I wasn’t much of a John Lewis shopper until last Christmas, when I co-edited a co-branded food and entertaining supplement for the Guardian. After being exposed to just how beautiful the JL proposition is, I went nuts for the pale pink tree baubles, the ridiculously glam retro cocktail glasses and the super stylish Christmas table settings.

This year, I’m on a new campaign for the brand, and it’s all about sleep. Sleeping well, sleeping enough and sleeping in absolute luxury. There’s lots of content to come over the next few weeks (including an ace piece on insomnia by Kelly Rose Bradford in next Saturday’s Weekend), but the competition (with a top prize of a whopping £1,000 of John Lewis gift vouchers) is live right now if you want to enter.

And seeing as I’m now totally sold on John Lewis bedroom furnishings, I made a beeline for the sleep department this morning when I made an unexpected trip to Purley Way (long story).

I think this really hits the mark for a ten year old, style and theme-wise

If it wasn’t enough that the kids bedding range that immediately caught my eye featured scooters (my lads use a cream Vespa on the school run) it’s only called “Here, There and Everywhere”: Sold! To the retro-obsessed Beatle maniac!

As well as the cars and chevrons single duvet cover set (£25), I plumped for the Vespa cushion (£15) and The Basics blue throw (£5). Job done.

My boy may be a tweenager, but there’s always room for this little guy in his bed
