Making room for two boys in this scheme

blue and green shared bedroom for boys
Got two boys? A shared room for them is a pretty simple affair, really. OK, that’s based on the fact that my two boys are fairly ambivalent about what goes in their room, actually. Just don’t stick pink and girly and they’re OK.

So some basic principles. As with any shared bedroom idea, decide if you want things to be the same, different or coordinated. In this case, I’ve gone with the same – as in each boy is getting the same bedding and they’re in a bunk bed, making the furniture the same as well. However, I ended up with different for the seating – a denim bean bag chair and a tan upholstered chair – and coordinated for the pillows – each boy getting a green pillow, then some versions of orange and blue.

Why, yes. The orange is a totally random color addition, meant to bring in a few punches of color and keep things interesting. Too much blue and green might be calming, but it was starting to border on boring for me as well.
