Boy & Girl Twins Nursery

Design Inspiration

With much excitement we are expecting a little girl and a little boy. With limited space in our home (one bedroom for the kids) I had to come up with ideas that I could use for unisex as well as space savors.

Decorating Style

Simple, Modern, & Clean. 

Project Details

 Cribs: Stokke. www.babyearth.com  These are perfect for growing babies and toddlers. They even turn into two chairs per crib in the end!

 

Bedding: Stokke doesn’t make cute sheets. The best option is to have a seamstress make them with fabric you choose. Eliza Chaikin Kenan, a friend of mine designs fabric and sewed these for me. I have two more options as well to change out. Find all her amazing fabric here: http://www.ifshesleeps.com

 

Rug: www.overstock.com

 

Small Sheep Skin: www.ikea.com

 

Leaning Bookshelf: www.crateandbarrel.com

 

World framed poster. I found on etsy the old school pull down map and used the world version and had that framed.

 

Dresser and changing table: It was important to find a little longer changing table as they grow fast. My girlfriend has said her baby had already outgrew her changing table so I was on the hunt. www.roomandboard.com

 

Rocking chair: Monte. I couldn’t pay a ton for a chair I wasn’t going to use again. This was modern with beautiful fabric and we can use this after anywhere in the house.

Favorite Items

The stokke cribs and sheets are my favorite! I love that the cribs roll around the house when needed in the beginning and I love that they grow with the kids. I feel like you get a lot for the money you spend on them. The sheets are just perfect because they work both with boy and girl and can be switched out. Not shown is yellow and another blue with different designs. Check out Eliza Kenan (under project links) for her specific fabric designs. 

Advice

Don't be afraid to mix and match vintage and new. Etsy is a wonderful resource. The map was $80 and I know for sure it would of been a fortune elsewhere.

[…] Twinsies by kmckz Melisa, of Project Nursery, says, “I just adore the gender-neutral color palette, modern simplicity and bold graphic area rug selected by this soon-to-be mom of twins! But for me, placing the two Stokke cribs center stage is the icing on the cake. It’s all about the babies here as every nursery should be.” Click Here for More Photos and Details […]

Small Cribs for Small Spaces - Project Nursery

Thursday 19th of December 2013

[…] Another small crib that makes a big design statement is the Stokke Sleepi. You can even buy the add-on kit to make it a mini. Though a bit more of an investment at $999 for the base system, the Sleepi can also be converted to a toddler bed and even chairs, which means you can use it a lot longer than other small cribs. See how it’s used to save space successfully in this twin nursery. […]
