Room for Two: Shared Nursery Inspiration

Sharing a room with a sibling can create a special bond between them.  I shared a room with my sister up until I was 10 years old.  I credit much of the bond  and relationship that we share to our late night chats in our room and us being able to comfort one another at night if we were scared.  I only hope that my two girls will develop much of the same.

Living in a two bedroom apartment in New York City does not leave us with a lot of room for a family of (soon to be) four with two dogs.  I knew we were going to have a nursery for two even before we got pregnant.  Thankfully Harlan’s room is big enough for another crib and still gives her enough space to play in it.

Since finding out that I was pregnant I have been searching the internet far and wide for shared nursery ideas.  I need optimal storage space, great decorating ideas without painting the walls, and lots of color.

Check out this collection of 15 shared nursery ideas that will make the room for two create a bond between siblings that will last a lifetime!
