Since I first pondered the idea of a room for two (and now that I will need a room for two!) I've been hunting and gathering tips, trying to decide what will work best in the preschooler's teeny, tiny space.
In the small bunk space above, bold colours and patterns have been embraced with the use of patchwork. Repeating fabrics in both the quilts and the bunk curtains maintain a sense of cohesion while the painted white walls and bed frame create a calm, unified base.

Here is a simple idea perfectly realised. Matching beds and shared bunting for symmetry, contrasting bright bed linen and toy storage for individuality and classic initials above the beds. The collection of cosy pillows in different colours but replicating shapes adds to the sense of harmony. (The peace banner doesn't hurt either.)

Beds arranged head to tail allow for all-important playing space. Again a base of white -- this time on the walls, curtains, shelving and bed-frames serve as a canvas for the brilliant rainbow striped rug and rainbow bunting. The netting over the bed seamlessly ties together the materials and shapes of the bunting and the window drapes. The effect? Pure whimsy.
What do you think? Have any must-know tips for two? I'd love to hear!
