NataLee 9-1-1: Shared Boy and Girl Bedroom

Jana of Salt Lake City, Utah writes:

I don’t really have a picture for this one, but a big problem I have in my condo is decorating one bedroom that is shared by a 3-year-old boy and a one-year-old girl. Other than splitting the room down the center with a long piece of tape, I don’t know what to do. I would love any ideas you can send my way.
Thank you!

Dear Jana,

My husband grew up in a very large family and shared a room with his sisters too. Hopefully my ideas will give you some inspiration.  There are two options: go gender neutral or the same style, but different colors.

First, gender neutral. There is something so nostalgic about sock monkeys to me… so I adore this bedroom.  The creams and browns with a touch of red is simply wonderful.  This type of room could carry your kids for many years to come. 

This room could be good for either sex as well.

Now I know the toile fabric in this room is a little feminine, but the color palette works well for both sexes.

Now for same style, different colors.  Here is good example of what I mean. Same bedding and accessories… one pink, one blue.  But they both work well together.

This room is so adorable.  Quirky and cute all in one.  Perfect for a shared bedroom between brother and sister.

Well, I hope these ideas were helpful! Would love to see pictures of the finished product.

    The last two rooms are my favorites. (Especially the “No boys/girls allowed!”) I’m inspired and ready to get to work. Thank you, as always, for your great ideas!
