A Bedroom For A Boy & Girl

Friday, 4 January 2013

So the time has come to move Lydia out of our bedroom. Well she is two years old!

Our major problem is lack of space. Until we move house {that's a whole other story!} we're stuck in our tiny two bedroom house. So Lydia has been in her cot in our bedroom because Oliver's bedroom is also tiny. The only way they can share the room is to have bunk beds, but Oliver is only three years old {four in 3 days} so until now we thought he was too young to go on the top bunk. Lydia is also running out of space in her cot so we've got to do the move asap. Actually,  I can't wait to have our bedroom back so I can have an early night and watch tv in bed.

So I've chosen and ordered the bunk beds and they'll be arriving in a few days. Exciting stuff. I've been looking for ideas on how to make their bedroom as nice as I can which works for both a girl and boy.  The walls are a pale yellow colour which we are keeping as it's quite nice and neutral. Once again Pinterest came in very  handy  for finding ideas for a girl/boy shared bedroom.

Here are a few of the photos I've pinned as my inspiration...

The last two are my favourites, I just love the bright colours. I definitely think a trip to Ikea is called for. I really love this brightly coloured bunting duvet cover and matching curtains. They look great for both a girl and boy and would go perfectly with everything else in the room. I'd like them with a blue blanket on Oliver's bed and a red one on Lydia's for a little individuality.

Wish us luck that the move goes smoothly. I'll keep you updated on how the it goes and will share some photos when the room is finished.

  2. I love Pinterest, and what fantastic ideas! I love that very hungry caterpillar & butterfly one especially. We're all squeezed into a 3 bed - the boys share the master bedroom, the girls in the middle room & the Mister and I have the box room so I know what you mean about space! x

    1. Oh yes you are a bit squashed in too! We thought of swapping rooms with the kids but our king size bed won't fit in the small room! x
