Ever since Lou was born, I’ve dreamed of creating a shared girls bedroom for little gals. I just picture lots of girly giggling and doll playing going on in a shared bedroom. My girls are about two and a half years a part so it seems like the perfect age gap to have them share a room. Currently, Remi and Lou have their own rooms but now that I’ve finished the space it’s time to consolidate. This will free up an extra bedroom upstairs for someone else…and NO that’s not an announcement!
The only concern I have is bedtime. If you’ve done a shared room I’d love to hear your tips on how you conquered bedtime!
For those of you who are new here, we designed and built this home from the ground up. It was completed back in Aug, 2018…completed meaning I strategically left a lot of rooms unfinished so I could complete them myself. We had the floral wallpaper on the ceiling and and barn door installed upon completion. The rest has been a process.
Today, I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with At Home Stores to not only complete my girls shared bedroom, but to find that One piece that really brings the space together. Honestly, I found everything I needed to complete the bedroom install in one trip!
Shared Girls Bedroom with Floral Wallpaper Reveal
Stepping back real quick, this is what the bedroom looked like before. I had the basics in place (ie. beds and dressers). The beds were thrifted and I painted them Abalone Shell by SW and the dresser and nightstand are part of set that was given to us by my in laws. It was their very first bedroom set they purchased as a married couple. I always love to incorporate some pieces with family history.
Beyond that, I was able to fill in all the special pieces needed to bring this shared girls bedroom to life with AtHome. My girls bedroom is fairly large. I was on a mission to find a nice sized rug to ground and unify the space. I knew this would be the key piece that would bring the space together. It was love at first site. The rug is so soft and the two-toned geometric pattern is just enough to balance the floral wallpaper on the ceiling without being too overwhelming. I SCORED THE PERFECT 8X10′ RUG FOR $299! Winning!
I went with and overall color scheme of mauve, white/cream, and black… pulling colors from the floral wallpaper. I brought in a couple super soft mauve throw pillows and layered a lavender and white patterned pillow over that. Even though lavender is not part of the overall color scheme, the undertones of the purple still play well with the muted tones throughout the room. I also fell in love with these cute textured throw blankets and placed them at the foot of each bed. Each girls bed is made the exact same way achieving symmetry and and balance…The stuffed animals and monogrammed letters being the only items differentiating the designated beds.
I created a small gallery above the dresser with a combination of quotes and art that speak to the girls interests and life philosophies that I hope to ingrain in their little heads. If you followed the design process of my sons room, you would know that I love to create a space for my kids to display photos and art of their own creation. Click HERE to see his bedroom complete. This oversized bulletin board equip with gold clips was the perfect addition.
The last corner of the girls bedroom that needed a little love was the window seat. AtHome had so many decorative storage options of all shapes and sizes. I found four of these natural woven baskets with the arched handle. The perfect solution for all the girls books housed just below their designated reading station. What girl wouldn’t want a window seat? I know I always did! (More to come on this bench seat…not quite finished here.)
A little dress up station completed the cute little corner. A wooden clothing rack, a mirror, and a pouf were the only items needed to create countless little memories full of girly giggles and make believe moments. I hope you enjoyed seeing my shared girls room come to life. If you have any tips for mastering bedtime with two gals in a room please let me know in the comments section below.
