Whimsical, Animal-Inspired Kid's Shared Bedroom Reveal
You may have remembered that in October I shared the mood board for my children's shared bedroom. I want a space that encourages play, creativity, and learning for my now two-year-old daughter and four-year-old son. As you can see below I didn't shy away from patterns or colors, and it seems to match my children's free-spirited personalities. This room was so fun to create, and it is now my favorite room in the house. The room has amazing bones with beautiful windows that get the best morning light and gorgeous tall, tin ceilings. It is so fun to watch my children play in their separate areas in a space I created for them. So today I am so happy to share their bedroom with you.
For your convenience, I have a full reference list and a shopping guide below. Hope you enjoy!

My inspiration behind the room came from the quilt my husband's grandmother made for my daughter. It is full of rich vintage fabrics and colors. You can see the handmade quilt on the mood board and below on our glider. So when I saw this rug from Rugs USA I knew it would be perfect in the room. I got it for a great price during one of their sales, and it is holding up really well. I think it adds so much fun and character to their room.
My daughter loves to read, and so I wanted to create a reading corner for her alongside her dollhouse.
My husband created the Restoration Hardware-inspired animal ladder prints. You can see the full tutorial for these here.
I had a difficult time finding a bedspread for my son. I found this whimsical, embroidered fabric from Hobby Lobby that fit the theme and colors perfectly. So I made a simple duvet cover for his bed.
The bunting fabric garland was displayed at my son's baby shower. I believe the fabric ties beautifully with the original theme.
I love my daughter's crib. Unfortunately, it is not available anymore from Restoration Hardware.
We needed some extra clothes storage for my daughter, since there is only one closet in the room. The armoire is a hand-me-down from my in-laws when they were in Scotland. I loved the bones, but felt it needed a vintage makeover. I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint and wax to create a vintage look.
We topped the armoire with some cute, vintage and reproduction toys. It is fun to take them down and let my children play with them. Then I put them back up to keep them safe, and out of curious hands.
We keep most of the toys in our attic playroom. However, I like to circulate some of my children's favorite toys throughout the room. I place the toys in baskets, a pink trash can, drawers and the closet.
I love decorating with items the kid's cherish. It is so fun for my daughter to grab her favorite tutus from the door knobs and play dress up when she wants.
As promised, below is a source list for most of the items in the room. Please let me know if I missed anything.
Thank you for following along. I hope you enjoyed the room as much as I did putting it together!
