WINNING TWINS - MAKING TWO BEDS BETTER THAN ONE!

Love these twin bedrooms. Perfect for children (boy, girl or even toddler soon to be tot) and/or guests. Oh how I wish I even had an extra room to decorate...for kids and guests alike.

Think these rooms are fab because they all have a bit of whimsy to them and some bold use of color. All show much design can matter in a kid's or guest room.

From fun spindle headboards, to colorful drapes and canopies, to grass cloth covered walls, to a bright Marimekko wallpaper (see last photo), to colorful bedding...these rooms pack twice the design punch of any old single bed bedroom!

My favorite is the first room with the great yellow headboards...forget the guests or children, I might just make that one my own!

Happy Wednesday! (I have the day off from work...yipppeeee)

  7. I'm a big fan of putting a desk between twin beds in a guest bedroom. I am such a fan of the big bed, I forget about humble twins.
    Best,

  8. The little boys room is adorable! My favorite is the room with the sunflowers. Love the iron bedframes and red checked blankets.

    Makes me want to do my bedroom over..>Wait I have to "do" it before I can do it over. I love making pillows and being able to change my bed linens cause I get bored. Or else I ruin them cause I leave a pen on the bed and it bleeds all over the cover.
