Twins! Double the blessing, double the trouble, double the—well, everything! Kendra Atkins, the blogger behind the inspiring health, home decor and beauty blog withkendra, welcomed identical twin girls in December. And although her life is currently full of all things baby—times two!—she’s stealing a moment to share a peek inside June Everly and Violet Noel’s lovely twin girls nursery.
Design inspiration can come from anywhere—what inspired your nursery design?
I love creating spaces that work with the entire house. I like each room to have its own personal style yet go with the rest of the home. For the nursery, I wanted a peaceful space with feminine touches. I knew I wanted the walls to be a pale pink, so I chose to keep the rest of the furniture and decor in more neutral tones.
How did your personal style influence your design choices?
The fun thing about decorating this room was that I could make it more girly than the rest of our house is. To do this, I brought in pops of rose gold, floral patterns and other dainty items.
Did you have any unexpected obstacles when creating this room? How did you overcome them or spin them to your advantage?
Once I found out we were having twins, I immediately thought the room would be way too small. By choosing simple pieces of furniture, like the girls’ cribs, it made the space look larger. I didn’t want a lot of clutter, so I kept the bigger pieces neutral and brought in color and texture through the smaller decor items.
What is that one thing that everyone mentions when they step into this space?
When people step into the room, everyone says how calming it is. I find that when friends come over, we end up spending so much time in the nursery because it has such a soothing vibe to it. I also love that it’s a room that our girls can grow into. It has elements that will work for years to come.
