A Project For
A twin nursery that is soothing for both babies and mom!
I wanted my little girls' room to flow with the rest of our home, but still be appropriately girly for them. I didn't want an overwhelming theme, but there are quite a few bird-silhouette items incorporated. We used new and old pieces blended together, and tried to avoid a matchy-matchy feel. I saved a lot of ideas I saw on Project Nursery!

We started working on the room almost immediately, even before we knew the genders of our babies. The furniture was gender neutral, and then we chose colors and accessories after we found out they were both little girls. I kept tags and receipts because I changed my mind a lot! I would recommend creating a room that fits your personal taste, because you will be the one spending a lot of time there! I would also recommending buying things that could go in other places in the home for when the kids grow up and want to change the room.
