Shared Kid's Room Design


I hope you love the shared space I made for your sweet babies. I feel like it will grow with them and be easily update-able as they grow and change preferences.

I'd paint the room in sherwin williams 'agreeable grey'. It's a great neutral but still keeps things light and bright.

I picked the same bedding but in different colors then I'd buy them matching sheets to pull both sides together. A batman pillow for little man and a sweet ruffle pillow for the big girl. 

I chose the rug I used for our dining room because it has so many great colors. A little pink but also some neutral greys and taupe and then navy and black. Also, it's so busy in pattern that it will hide any spills and stains.  I'd buy it in an 8x10 at least. a 9x12 would give you plenty of space in between the beds and leave room for rug on either side. Big rugs can get expensive but they run sales and discount codes.

You could easily find a thrift store night stand for in between their beds. Something like this would look so good too. It's metal so it's easily wipe-able and each kiddo could have a drawer.

I also think you could find matching thrift store or craigslisted twin beds as well but something with simple lines like this would work. Wood tones would look great too.

Above their beds, I picked watercolors by the same artist on ETSY. They are made to by 8x10's but if you'll ask the shop ower, a lot of times they'll resize them so that you can print them bigger. I'd try to get at least 11x14's. I'd put them in these frames (they're on sale right now). They have a mat so the print will looks nice and substantial over each of their beds. The great thing about framed art is that you can switch out the actual artwork and be able to use the frames in here for years. You can get poster sized prints from staples or walmart for pretty cheap.

I picked some rattan (but plastic) toy bins. A row of hooks for coats, backpacks or dress up. A cute shelf for little trinkets or things that need to stay up and out of the way and some cute wall art for a gallery wall right by the door on K's current bed wall.

A simple, modern black curtain rod and some plain white curtains will look so nice, soften the room and work for both kiddos. I even picked out some outdoor fabric in case you wanted to make the window ledge a seat for reading and relaxing.

The window wall is also where you'll have your extra storage. These pax wardrobes from Ikea would be a great way to add some closet space to the room. I'd buy them in white to keep the space looking light and bright. You could even trim these out to make them look like a wall of built ins.

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you love the space!
