Yesterday we featured a rambling cottage in East Sussex featuring muted color and rustic decor. The children’s rooms feature reclaimed furniture and budget-friendly storage ideas (a milk crate as side table and Ikea shelving). Below we’ve recreated the look of a room meant for siblings with the following key elements:
