I’ve got three young children, and with two girls, I spent a good amount of time designing and decorating their bedrooms. I deliberated over the furniture, the wallpaper, the carpeting, the paint colors, the fabric covered headboard (in one case), where to place the lamps, personalized linens and of course the dolls and Steiff bears to adorn the shelves. I wanted to make each room unique and special — giving each her own identity and space. (My girls are 10 months apart and so they easily blend into a twin-like existence)Well, separate existences aside, they have practically moved into one bedroom and they insist on sleeping together at night. I’ve come to find out that five and six year old girls have p-l-e-n-t-y to chat about at night, and their bedtime chatter can prolong any hope (or delusion on my part) of them sleeping. Since they are growing so fast, and showing no signs of separating, I’m beginning to think it’s time to investigate separate beds in the same room.
Twin beds can be beautiful in a shared space. Here are a few of my favorites from my Pinboard on Pintrest (you can follow me here)
A few hard-to-resist bunk beds as well:
Of course, there are some very creative designers out there!
I thought you’d find some inspiration in this entry! If you are in the market for twin beds, check out our collection at The Well Appointed House….I’ve got a whole category of Children’s Beds, Lofts and Trundles. Enjoy! -Melissa Hawks
