Calling All Creatives

Most people know the issues I went through with Collin’s nursery at our Argyle house. And my lack of motivation/cash flow here at the “new” house has left every room incomplete, except for the Kids’ bathroom, upstairs. You know, the one that no one ever sees. Yeah.

I knew the second I saw the shower curtain for the bathroom what I wanted to do. I love it. It’s perfect for boys or girls. It’s bright and fun. And I know exactly what I want to do in our bedroom (but it’s going to be quite sometime before that happens (Unless someone wants to make a sizeable donation for new furniture, linens and paint)) So here is what I want some help with. Bedroom ideas. For the kids.

Come Monday (HOPEFULLY) we will know if they twins will be boys, girls, or one of each :) Obviously if they are both the same sex they will share a room. And I’ll need to decide on decor for boys or girls. Should we have a boy and a girl, they will share a room for about the first year. Maybe a little more or less depending on sleeping habits. Then the boy and Collin will share a room and our Little Miss will have her own space. (This makes me kind of sad thinking that “the oldest” won’t have his own room, but I can’t make a boy and girl share a room for very long.)

The guidelines:

  • I think I like darker furniture.
  • We are more contemporary and modern with clean lines, and strong bold colors.
  • Not so much into “vintage” or “boutique” or “classic baby.”

OK! Now send me your ideas! Pretty please :)


  1. Personally I hope the twins are girls! Going off that, there are many options for girly themed bedrooms... One being bunkbeds! (of course not until after a few years) White furniture and pink linens usually goes well. Just my opinion... you asked! :-)

  2. Bright pink, bold pink, soft pink, light pink, hot pink, fushia... oh wait, I'm not being very helpful, am I? ;)

  3. On the serious side... I would love to come help you if you need/want me to (:

  4. I'm going to be thinking about it, and when you hear on Monday, I'm going to let you know what I think! I've thought about twin nurseries a lot and it sounds like we have similar taste, so hopefully you'll like it! :)

    Also- there is a little girl in Brookelynne and Collin's room at Mom2Mom named Bella. Her mom just announced that she's 9 wks pregnant with twins! :) Thought you'd like to know that you're not alone!
