Combining Rooms - Girls

Last year was a year of change, one being the addition of our baby boy.  Our girls, who used to have their own bedrooms, now (much to my oldest daughter's dismay) share a room (possible design dilemma).  There are so many ways to create a fun shared space for girls.  Here are some ideas:
Pink and orange: This is such a great combination and you'll never forget whose side is whose with an extra-large photo!

Positioning beds end to end can create a lot of extra space in a room.

A fun way to express budding personal style, individual wallpaper.

Pottery Barn Kids
Alternative furniture placement adds interest.  The use of wrought iron creates visual space.

The girls' room turned out better than I imagined. I think it's safe to say they even enjoy sharing their space!  I will be doing a home tour post in the near future so stay tuned for the result!
