My daughter's colourful bedroom









People often ask me what my daughter's room is like at home so I including a few snap shots. (I've not included the cot as it isn't very interesting.) Cushions are from vintage fabrics, yellow lamp is a vintage Conran one for Habitat, animal curtains are vintage Habitat, yellow pinafore and dolls are ones I've designed for Clothkits and the cushion on the chair was made from a 70's linen tea towel.

Normally I find things for myself at the Brighton boot Sale buy yesterday I bought one item - a vintage french knitted dress for my one year old! The other photos are from a 1973 book illustrated by Gwen Fulton - I like the striped jumpers!
