Kids Room Ideas: 2-year-old Emma's Room

Clever, crafty creative Cintia (from the My Poppet blog and My Poppet by Mail online shop) shares with us her two-year-old daughter Emma's fun bedroom. You can't go wrong using a netural base with lots of colourful accessories and Cintia does this so well, bringing together vintage and modern in her daughter's special space.

My favourite (and Cintia's favourite) element of the room is the beyond-divine hexagon rug made by Cintia using recycled sweaters and old blankets. I told you she was clever. Lots of great DIY ideas here. Enjoy!
