Because this small bedroom must be shared by two young girls, spacial planning was very important. A lofted bed for the older of the two girls creates room for the younger girl's crib and a storage or play space. A bunk bed can replace the setup as the girls age. A light, monochromatic palette was used to make the room feel larger than it is. Fabrics and accents with distinct patterns and textures are used to make the space from feeling too plain.
This shared boys’ bedroom may lack in space, but there are no sacrifices in style thanks to smart space planning, careful layering of colors and textures, and lots of whimsical elements. With ageless elements like hanging chairs and resin antlers, this is a room kids can continue to grow into and not out of.

Think outside the box when creating a workspace that needs to accommodate more than one person. In this shared boys’ bedroom, a Parsons-style desk allows multiple seats to be stored underneath. The working wall affords kids a low-commitment way to tape artwork and mementos right at their eye level. Gold garden stools provide versatile seating options that can accommodate group study sessions.
This space hosts the two Stansell boys, who share this bedroom that could also be described as their own little well-curated museum of interests. Their personalities and evidence of their adventures are proudly displayed around their room. If you look closely you’ll spy that at least one of the boys is a budding chef. They also have a small family of hamsters between them, and they love yellow tractors. The boys’ room is a really good example of how I approach kids' spaces: always go monochromatic with walls and bedding. Between their toys, books, art, rugs, etc. there will be plenty of opportunity for stimulation/adding interest without becoming too busy. My fave in the room? The drapes are perfectly appointed: they look fun and put an exclamation point on the entire space.
