Adorable Brother & Sister Bedroom: This Is How It Should Be Done!

Usually when we talk about shared spaces, they happen to be for siblings of the same gender. But what about when brother and sister bunk up together? This room for Aden and Isabel by designer and mom Emily Mughannam is all the proof you need that it can be done --and quite successfully too!

I think the key here is having some sort of a neutral base for everything in this type of shared bedroom. The bolder details here play nicely off this gray-striped wall as an example. I can also appreciate that nothing in this room is overly masculine or feminine, but a little bit of everything instead.

There's plenty of color in the room, but the tones tend to be muted. Don't you love the shade of orange on this set of drawers? 

How about those navy doors? Cool, right? I also like that the furniture isn't all matchy-matchy but different and complementary. 

More grays in the crib bedding for Isabel keep things neutral with all the rug patterns and wall hangings.

Another peek into the layout of the room. That circle rug with the tribal print is super fun!

Brother-and-sister sharing can be difficult to navigate, but I think this bedroom pulls things together really well.
