A Beautiful Nursery for a Big & Little Sister

by Gabrielle Blair on January 17, 2013 at 2:39 PM

I love seeing photos of nurseries and rooms for children that feel functional and like children really live there. I see a lot of picture-perfect in the design world, and yet nothing makes me more happy than homes that feel comfortable and lived in.

This room put together by Ninainvorm feels warm and homey and exactly how a shared space for two sisters should look. See more below!

I love the eclectic mix of colors and furniture alike. It's totally unmatched and completely complementary.

Crocheted Granny squares on that afghan. I die! 

More details from little sister's crib, lovely and perfectly sweet.  

So many fun touches that feel personal and thoughtful, don't you think? Those hanging dresses are adorable, and the bunting in the window is delightful. 

I always love seeing how families address shared spaces for siblings, and this gorgeous nursery is an eclectic and colorful inspiration indeed.

What do you think of this room?

    No. I like creative spaces. This is to much junk for a glorified walk in closet, that's pretty much what this room is, WIC. I have seen better put together rooms in a small space, this is horrid.

    Those cribs actually look illegal. How far apart are the "bars"?? They look as if a baby could easily slide through and hang. And I really detest seeing pillows in a crib. The shelves are hard to get to, as are some of the clothes. What is with that chair? There's no space for it in 3 of the pictures, and yet, magically, it appears in the fourth? It looks truly uncomfortable, also. That is so insanely staged. I'm sorry, but this whole room is a "fail".

    And I only just noticed: the beds *AGAINST* a heater?? With *NO* cover *OR* space?!?!?!? W.T.H?!?!?!

    I see that this is in the Netherlands, so I don't know their laws for cribs, but I see even more things in this room that, as a parent, raise alarm bells. Buttons? On a baby sleeper?

    Take a deep breath, girls! This room may be in Europe, the beds may not be "legal" in the US, the beds may be against the heating and there may be buttons on the sleeper! But, it may come as a surprise to you that we somehow also manage to raise healthy babies in Europe without all this hysteria! And, this post was not about safety issues anyway, but about the feeling of the room.......

    European kids have their beds against heaters (that are probably turned off by the way). American children own guns. Take your pick.
