12 Stylish Children’s Shared Bedroom Ideas

Grey & White Sibling Bedroom Inspo CollageSpring not only brings brighter days and sunshine but the start of many new home projects. Its been almost two years since we bought and moved into our first home, and as any new homeowner will know, there’s always lots to do.

We hit the pause button last year after completing some pretty extensive decorative renovations the year we moved in. So it’s exciting to be able to hit the start button again and begin some new home projects.

Our main aim is to really start putting our stamp on our home so I’ll share more about the different projects over the next few weeks and months. But for now, I wanted to share our first and one of the ones I am most excited about which is the children’s bedroom.

Children’s Shared Bedroom Ideas

At the moment Ella has her own bedroom and the little guy is in a SnuzPod bedside crib in our room. He is most definitely about to outgrow this so the time is ripe to move him into a full-sized cot.

Rather than put him in our third bedroom which is currently our home office, we decided it would be nice for the little ones to share a bedroom whilst they are both really young until we either move again or extend.

There is something quite nice about sharing a bedroom when you’re young. I shared a bedroom with my little sister when I was young and I still remember the camaraderie and the closeness that it brought so I can’t wait for our little ones to experience this too.

At the moment Ella’s room is a beautiful pale mint colour which we painted when we first moved in. I still love this colour so we’ll build their room around that.

However to get some inspiration I have been gathering lots of ideas over on my Pinterest boards and wanted to share some of my favourites here.

There are three main colour schemes that I am absolutely loving and think would work well for a stylish children’s shared bedroom. I’ve named them Scandi Chic, Playful Pastels and Mini Monochrome.

Now the hard work is deciding which one to go with so I’d love to hear which one is your favourite!

    I love how fresh and clean the grey and white looks. I would imagine them to look boring but in your photos they are very stylish and fresh. #MarvMondaysl

    These are lovely! I love a rail instead of a wardrobe but I’m just not tidy enough! #marvmondays

    Those are glorious! The problem is they won’t look like that for very long once the Tubblet gets into them! She is a mess fairy!

    Some of those rooms are sooooo cute! I love all the styles. My daughter’s room is more pastel coloured though. It’s not that big so I ended up keeping the walls white and just adding coloured stickers of flowers, animals and butterflies. I’m so happy with it!

    Have fun re-styling! Can’t wait to see some pics xx #MarvMondays

    Emily, the more I visit, the more I love your blog. This is such a wonderfully pleasing post. I love the styles and photos you’ve chosen. Your blog looks lovelier as time goes on and I really like the fact there’s always bags of your own personality in the posts, no matter the topic.

    Just saying!! (That’s Helen from Just Saying Mum’s line but I’m just making sure you know)….

    Scandi is my fave #MarvMondays

    These are all gorgeous! I love the pastels. We need to decorate our little girl’s room again soon to make it more ‘little girl’ and less ‘baby’, so this is great inspiration! #marvmondays

    I love these. Hey are all beautiful rooms. I have my sights set on my little girls room this year now she is getting bigger, I can’t wait to get started and start looking for some lovely stylish additions to the room! #marvmondays

    Aw, those are all lovely but I do like lots of colour in a kids’ room so I think I’d go for the pastels. Our boys share but they make such a mess, I haven’t bothered decorating. They’re getting a bit older now, though, and it looks like we’ll be in this house at least another year so it may be time! Thanks for the inspiration.

    What great ideas. I love finding new ways to decorate. I only have one right now and she is 9 years old but I will be having another within the next couple years. Saving for later! #dreamteam

      Wow, what a big girl! I imagine their tastes really start to change at that age. Glad you still enjoyed the post though and may be able to use it for future inspo 🙂
