i've been talking about my two best gals sharing a room since before we had kaye.

(my farmer and i knew we were going to have girls even before i was pregnant with kaye. we just knew...)

my sister and i shared a room from the moment i was born until she moved out for college when i was 16.

now when i reflect on sharing a room with my sister - it was the hardest and very best things about my childhood. obviously, at that tender age i didn't realize any of the lessons i was learning along the way, but most importantly, it bonded us together. not to say this wouldn't have happened had we had our own rooms, but, this is how it worked out for us.

we played, fought, yelled, wrestled, decorated, imagined, studied, rearranged, tackled (seriously...we were very physical fighters) - all in that room. when kelli moved out it was the very best day. it was a big room and it was all mine. i didn't realize in that moment that my best friend and i would never share a room again. it was such a valuable experience, as soon as sawyer was born, i knew putting kaye and saywer together was the way to go.


obviously i've been thinking about how i wanted to pull their room together...i mean, i've talked about it here enough. and after i finished kaye's room and realized it was a freaking circus in there with all the colors (see that post here)...i knew i wanted to tone it down.

the biggest bummer was when i realized i wasn't going to be able to get another quilt like kaye's current quilt. i just adore that quilt and of course, anthropologie doesn't sell it anymore.

hey! does anybody want that quilt? it's a twin size. i'll sell it to you for $150 + two shams. (see the set in the pictures in this post.)

actually...i'll probably be doing an entire post on some goodies i'll need to get rid of when i bring the girls together in the next few months. some shelving, baskets...not to mention a changing table and a gorgeous crib. but the furniture we'll just sell locally.

anyway, below are the pieces i've gathered. i think i'm going to get those goodies put in the room and then see where i'm at. i don't want to overwhelm the room like i did with kaye's space. i can't believe she's able to fall asleep each night with those diagonal stripes.
i think i'll need to source a floor lamp, and i want to buy a new slip cover for a chair we currently have in sawyer's room...but do i really put white fabric furniture in a child's room? is that crazy?

what else is missing? what am i forgetting?

happy monday. the girls and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a slip 'n slide.

  1. Love all the inspo. My sister and I shared a room until I was 13. If we have another girl I would totally have them share a room, as well.

  2. I love love love what you have so far! Especially the pom trim curtains and the black heart sheet set. I'm guessing they already have carpeting in their room but would you consider a fun area rug? Some pattern or texture would really tie together your sweet neutral color scheme.

  3. I love these pics!! I can't wait to see what it is going to look like. I know it will be darling

  4. Love this inspiration! The room is going to be adorable...I bet they'll love it.

  5. Ok. I'm coming to Idaho and stealing all of this stuff. Stop. It. Now. You're creating a room for them that I want for myself! Love it all so very much. And YES! You can absolutely do white. White = bleach = go for it. Also, Target has an amazing white floor lamp that I'm currently trying desperately to find a spot for in our house. That could be a great option for the girls room. Remind me to send you a link for it!:)

  6. I loved what you did to Kaye's room (seriously the cutest) so I can't wait to see the end product for the shared room! The mood boards you have currently definitely look A+

  7. I can't wait to see it come together!!! It's going to be pretty chic for those two little girls!!

  8. I love it all! That mermaid print is so adorable!!

  9. I love everything you have picked out. It is perfect!!!!

    I've designed all of Abigail's new space with the 100% full intention of moving Mabel in there someday. For sure those girls will be sharing a room. I love it.

  10. I shared a room with my sister as well for a good portion of my childhood. Then when I was about 15, I got my own lil room in the basement but we still talk about our "cleaning competitions" & how my sister would bring rocks she collected from outside into our room & I would then relocate back outside, etc. It was an adventure, that's for sure. :)

  11. I am guessing my girls will share one day too... I've just done separate rooms for them and loved how they turned out - will share on the blog soon! We have all white linen too x
