A Room For Two


Planning a room for a boy and a girl can be a challenge.  Finding the color scheme of aqua, grey, white, with touches of pink allowed for the room to be balanced.  

Design Inspiration

It was all inspired by the fabric shower curtain that I found at Target that I then had made into my daughters crib bedding.  Looking outside the box is what I always tell clients. 

Decorating Style

My style is comfortable, clean, bright and most of all full of fun.  Nothing too fancy for our family.  We want to be able to play pillow fight and not worry about hurting the pillows. 

Project Details

Bunk bed



deer, chandelier and flower prints

black and white pillow



Favorite Items

I have many favorites.  My DIY bench cushion was a labor of love.  I love the Salt and Paper artwork that I customized into the same grey.  And I really like the 'Dream Big' poster I created.  I love the way putting the crib in the bottom bunk space allowed for more available floor space.  My daughter doesn't mind her little 'cave.'


Just know you don't have to spend a lot to create an adorable space.  I talk about this often on my site 

Feel free to ask me any questions.

  1. […] I’m working hard on creating a new space for my kids.  Obviously, I’m my worst critic and can’t decide on anything this time around.  I’m finding that owning my first home has really caused me to be a slow decision maker.  I’m usually pretty quick, any of my friends and family would tell you I can decide on an item for their homes in seconds.  For my home, its becoming a challenge.  I have a vision in my head.  Clean, modern, black and white, gold, woods, eclectic…but, warm and homey.  Hmmm a challenge, but I love it.  So, as I ponder over what mirrors to buy for my bathroom vanities and what chairs I want for my family room, I’ve been focusing on the space that I can knock out pretty quickly…my kids room.  They still share a room as they did in our rental.  If you don’t remember what their room looked like before you can find it here and here.

  4. Eve,

    Hi ladies…my daughter was actually 18 months when I moved her into this transition stage. Bless her little heart she understood ‘duck.’ It actually worked out just fine. I do have an older style crib, that I saved from my son so it is higher then any crib you will find these days. So, if anyone decides to do this set-up with a newer crib you will have even more clearance then we do.
    Putting her into the crib was the same as I always did, I’d hold her against my chest and lower her in onto her back. She loved her ‘little cave,’ as my son called it.
    Just this weekend we put her into her big girl bed. It was a great solution to free up floor space for the amount of time we did it.

    Glad you both asked =)

  9. hannah,

    Under the window is actually two separate 2-cube bookcases from Target. They are similar to this one but I found mine instore and they were only $15 each. You want to make sure the center divider is stationary, instead of an adjustable shelf, so that when you put it on its side, it stays in place. I then added a leg kit from Ikea to each individual cube bookcase. So they can actually be pulled apart and still stand. I did have to purchase smaller screws then the ones included with the leg kit.

    If you have a larger window area then I have the Expedit bookcase from Ikea is my favorite to use for clients. Feel free to check out my site for other fun ideas.

    Emerson Grey Designs,

    Thanks! There is a premier prints here where I live. I will be paying them a visit this weekend!

  12. Dandelion,

    Thank you for the kind words Dandelion…I really like the color combo too. It’s even fresher in person. And you can add almost any accent color.

    Hi ladies… the shelves are picture ledges from IKEA…so easy to install! And they are priced great!


    The polka dot fabric is called Dandied Dot from Premier Prints. It comes in so many fun colors.

    I really love the combination of white and aqua. And what you did with the shelf was really awesome.

  15. avatar Dominique says:

    I love the colors, where did you purchase the polka dot fabric?

  16. avatar Michelle V. says:

    Yeah! I’d like to know where you got your shelves from too! :)
