If you’re seeking for some boy’s nursery inspiration, come and join us on today’s tour around the space created for baby Bosley. “The Guncles” Bill Horn and Scout Masterson discussed lots of different options and themes, but decided not to stick with some current trends and trust their own fashion taste and intuition. It all started with an awesome medieval castle and dragons wallpaper from Paper Boy London. They decided on the navy, white and pale blue color scheme, which looks incredibly good in a boy’s nursery. As for the furniture, I’m in love with their choice of the crib, which has wheels, so it can be easily moved anywhere, and gorgeous Straight and Narrow Bookledges from The Land of Nod.

We don’t always have an opportunity to provide our kids separate rooms. Well, it’s not a reason for blaming yourself, especially when you have such cool options for them to share a room. Probably, making a space welcoming and satisfying for both kids of different sexes seems to be the hardest task. So, how to design a room taking into account completely different children’s interests?

  1. When picking a room’s color, pay attention to neutral shades. Add some colorful patterns, make accents by adding a colorful pillow or a rug, so that the room wouldn’t look boring.
  2. Carefully think over storage options, it not only will make it easier to clean everything up, but also designate each child’s personal stuff.
  3. Choose simple and functional furniture like compact bunk beds. If you want to personalize the interests of each child, ask them to choose the bed linen themselves.
  4. Decorate your interior together with your children so that you could consider each child’s ideas and wishes.
