We are very blessed to be expecting our fourth baby this summer and grateful for our lovely home that we were more than happy to make our family of six nestle in the best way possible. And we were really happy that our kids felt excitement that sharing rooms was the only option.
We designed this room around a print that hung in my husband's room 30 years ago of a popular painting from The San Francisco Zoo. We had to also consider this room would be home to 2 little boys and 1 young lady...what to do? We went with a fun, vibrant, and colorful palette of primary colors. The final touches showcased all of the kids' interests and loves, and we used plenty of easily accessible storage space in order to make it easy for the little ones to keep their spaces clean.
Everything in the room is cute but, more important, safe. We earthquake strapped all furniture down and kept any surface cushioned with safety pads, so it's nice to know the kids can play like monkeys in there and be safe. There is nothing better than peeking in there at night and hearing all of them breathe!
