I realised once I wrote it that the title of this post is pretty misleading; we’re actually not having any more children (ever!), but moving both kiddos into their shared room over the next couple of months. I think a shared room is pretty challenging anyway, with multiple personalities, tastes and hobbies to consider, but when you’ve got a child of each gender to cater for it’s even more tricky.
I’ve been trawling the internet and most bedrooms seem to try and split the room in half so each child has a dedicated section, but I’m not really a fan of that; my two are still too young to need privacy, and I don’t really like how a room looks when you start splitting it in half – there’s also not enough space to start introducing dividers and curtains and whatnot. I’m looking at mixing in all the vintage and retro things I’ve already collected with some gender-neutral bedding, lighting and prints; I want it to be colourful, cheerful and a place they enjoy spending time together – particularly at bedtime, when the sofa is calling my name!
