A Monochromatic Room for Siblings

A Monochromatic Room for Siblings

Aug 2, 2012

Name: Elly (10) & Will (5)
Location: Minneapolis, MN

We live in a tall skinny townhome in the suburbs north of Minneapolis. With two larger bright bedrooms on the third level and one small darker space on the bottom, neither of our two children were wild about moving down below. Creating a space for both sleep & play for a little guy and our older daughter was a challenge.

After discovering some discarded wall decals in our stockroom, I began to collect my monochromatic, whimsical bedding and accessories. We layered the beds with black & white bedding from West Elm that is interchangable from bed to bed. For Will's bed we needed something low to the ground as he never stops moving, even in his sleep. His bed is actually an outdoor Tillary sofa that I covered with Ikat sheeting. It's fantastically modular and rotinely goes from bed to couch mode throughout the day. It's become a great peaceful space that belongs to them!

Terrific - thanks Heather!
