Shared room

How adorable is this idea for sibling's shared room? The duo wallpaper is definitely chicer than drawing a chalk line down the middle.

that is such a great idea!
I could totally see me dividing rooms like this is my future children share.

Erin said...

IKEA can do no wrong. Is this foreshadowing a sibling for Toby? :)

Briana said...

How cute!! And a great idea.

girlseeksplace said...

I love this. And how great are those beds?

Melissa Blake said...

i love this!!! :)

Christie said...

When I was little and shared a room with my older sister, this was my DREAM! My sister and I were (and still are) extremely different, so I always tried to get my mom to re-decorate our room to something like this!

Anna Walker said...

Erin, I was wondering the same thing!

Halcyon House said...

Love it! Wish my room (that I shared with my sister when I was young) was that chic!

Kate said...

Aw it's so cute, love the beds!

Sarah said...

Awww this is totally a great idea! Being the only girl I never shared a room, but hopefully my little girl will have a sister someday so she can have fun sharing a room =)

I think this is such a sweet idea! I love all things Ikea:) Btw: The wallpaper idea is brilliant. How was your weekend away, Joanna? Kisses

Daniela said...

Cute and beautiful! Those little beds are amazing.
I like the idea of the wallpaper to apply on other spaces also... like where I have my office at home at the dining room's corner... good idea... I'm inspried now.

So adorable x

I love this. I shared a room with my two sisters until I was 12. I often used chalk and sometimes tape to mark off "my side" of the room. The wallpaper would have been a better idea. I feel all nostalgic thinking back to those times, even though I remember dreaming about my own bedroom most of the time. At least I had my own bed. My younger sisters had to share a bed until they were 10!

Aya said...

Great idea!!

despar2 said...

How genius is this idea!!! My 2 girls share a room and we are pondering on how to make it their own as individuals while still sharing...What a great solution!

Diana @ frontyardfoodie said...

I grew up sharing a room with three to four of my sisters as a young child and then at least one as I grew older and I think it is SO important in the growth of a child to have to share. I am grateful for mine certainly.

My son and his sibling on the way will certainly be sharing a room! Hopefully it's a boy so they can share it for longer. hehe

I love the idea of two decorating schemes and am totally inspired by that photo!

Lauren Kent said...

I remember my brother and I had to share a room at my Dad's place until I was 11. I wish we'd had separate areas!

JWK said...

Brilliant!! I wish I could sleep in there!!

Dani said...

I wish my sister and I could have had such a luxury- regular bunk beds for us :)

LeeLee said...

What a lovely idea. Much better than a chalk line. Plus, the individuality of the siblings. So cute.

ana {bluebirdkisses} said...

this is fantastic!! my parents should have done something like this for my brother and I ...it would have saved us alot of trouble. If my kids ever end up having to share a space I will definitely do this.

HAMPTON HOSTESS said...

How adorably chic! Great Idea!

Heba said...

so adorable! that gold polka dot wallpaper is so cute and that mini bed for the doll is so adorable, I love that post very much :)

I love this idea, I love Ikea and look through their catalog.
I used to share a bedroom with my brother until 11 yr.
It worked out, my kids 9yr girl and 7 yr boy share a room. I think it work out good for now but my daugther will have her own bedroom when she will turn 10 ( we r moving yeahh)
How was your weekend Joanna?
Where did you go?

Kiana said...

So PRETTY! Does anyone happen to know where the wallpaper is from?

Molly @thewaffler.com said...

I like the idea, but I don't think I would be brave enough to do this for my kids...But your comment about a line down the middle made me think it might be neat to have a wall painted with chalkboard paint so that the kids could decorate their own sides.

Mandy Koster said...

Great idea!! I would have loved to share a room with a sister (which I do not have, but ok ;-) )

And indeed.. Joanna, is that something you are considering?? :-)

Fleur De Moi said...

Oh wow, such a cute idea. I want to live in that room!

emily said...

my boy is due any day and my girl (Lily, 14 months) and he will be sharing a room! not immediately, because he'll be with his mama and papa for the first bit in a bassinet, but soon, and I can.not.wait. will be so cute :D

just darling.

kitten roar said...

this looks so awesome! the two wallpapers somehow don't even clash at all. wish my sister and i had a room like this growing up....we had masking tape lines separating us many times ;)

meet emily said...

how i wish my parents had seen this when i was young!
i wanted pink walls, to which my sister obliged. then promptly rejected upon their completion. she wanted blue. we ended up with blue sponge painting over the pink. i lived in a world of cotton candy for nearly ten years! TEN!

Vang said...

What a great room! I shared my room with my siblings for a long time. I don't think our room was as organized as this one is in terms of separating personal spaces. I'm sure it would have saved us from a lot of sibling fights.

Girlie Blogger said...

Absolutely adorable! That's what I imagined for mulled if I were to have a second. We live in small spaces and need a similar set up.

I like this... neutral colors and yet each side done so uniquely for each child.

midders said...

My two girls share a room and the oldest had that bed in white (the youngest is still in a crib) I absolutely love the bed because it expands as they grow. We'll be getting a second one for the baby when she graduates to her big girl bed. Only problem is finding sheets & duvets for it that don't make you break out into a total sweaty mess while you are trying to make it up. If anyone can figure that out, let me know! IKEA just recommends buying the full twin size and having the extra length underneath the mattress.

Courtney Ann said...

I've shared a room with one of my sisters half my life and golly i wish we would've had this idea. Adorable.

bethani said...

what a great idea! i'm loving the wallpaper choices they used too. so different giving each girls' area their own "specialness"

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i think i'll make my (not-yet-existent) kids share a room just for the sake of re-creating this.

Lauren Conrad Style said...

I grew up having to share a room with my younger sibiling too and I WISH my mother would have thought about this idea for our rooms! Kids need to express their individuality and they love decorating their rooms so what a more genius idea than this? Thanks soooo much!

rebecca said...

so cute I wouldn't want to share it. I'm an only child so sharing has never been my thing. ha!

vanessa (the gal) said...

I ADORE this idea!!! Do you think this would work for a his and hers bathroom?? Kinda a fun idea right?!

xxoo- Vanessa (the gal)

That is a really good idea! Something that I would have loved when I was younger and shared a room with my sister who is 11 years younger than me!

i love this!!! the wallpaper idea is too perfect.

kira said...

Cute, the wallpaper is a great way of separating the room.
It reminds me of the Full House episode where DJ and Stephanie tried to put a line down their room and separate their spaces. Hilarity ensued.

Jessica Wray said...

The wallpaper idea is genius!

Stephanie @ Blawsom said...

Hey... that's actually a very clever idea! Let's just hope the two kids sharing the room don't like anything... um... OUTRAGEOUS! Say... oh I dunno... Barbie vs. Batman :)

Just another post that makes me scream for baby #2! How adorbs!

cute.. our dividing line is a wooden train track (erected by the four year old... not our idea)

Bronwyn said...

Super-pretty! I also like how the rug makes it feel like a cohesive whole...

Anne said...

Haha. Reminds me of my childhood. My sister and I shared a room, and my mom let us each pick a different wallpaper. In retrospect, hers was WAY nicer. It was nice to feel like we each had our own say on how our side was decorated.

Mommyblogger said...

Love it- you could so show their different personalitites with the wall paper!

Julia said...

Ikea always has the best ideas... Wish I could just live in one of their stores.

::little projects in style:: said...

hello, Friday said...

Clever. The duo wall paper is total genius. Make both space much more interesting. xoxo

I used to share a room with my sister, which was ok untill i became 10. All of a sudden i needed my own space. As we only had a tiny little room available in the house i managed to convince my mum to put my bed over there. There was no space left to move, but i had my OWN room :D

Jenny said...

I love this idea! We live in a small 2 bed flat with only one child at the moment but I was just wondering what we'd do if we had another ... I don't want to move because I love it here! This seems like a good solution for a while.

Maria said...

Such a great idea! This room is beautifully decorated!

What a great idea! It really gives each kid their own style, too. Can't go wrong with IKEA!

i agree.. this is such a great idea.. By having a shared room like this, children, siblings will be more closer and find a best friend form each other without getting out of the house.

When I was little and shared a room with my older brother, this was my DREAM! My brother and I were (and still are) extremely different, so I always tried to get my mom to re-decorate our room to something like
bunk beds I love this......

Jacquelyn said...

This is adorable. The husband and I share our office - maybe we should do this in front of our desks!
