A Bright & Beautiful Bedroom for 2 Brothers & a Baby Sister

Love It! 3

Three kids in one room? It can be done -- and quite successfully too. The secret in this shared space from A Bit of Sunshine is to maximize and utilize all available square footage -- and if that means the crib goes in the closet, then that's exactly what you do! Paint that nook a bright color, add some scallop detail and a few more girlish touches, and you're in business.

Here's more about how two brothers made way for baby sister below:

According to mom Rebekah, discovering that the crib fit into the closet space was a major achievement. Everything else just kind of fell into place. 

I'm admiring all the vintage details scattered throughout the room, so many bright colors and unique finds.

You have to fit that changing table where you can, right? Do you think her brothers minded much? I doubt it!

These bold colors work well for a shared space like this one. After all, who said that gender-neutral should be limited to whites and pastels?

With the closet in the room occupied, storage spilled out into the hall. Love how everything is neatly tucked into place. So organized!

What do you think about this room for three? Would your kids be up for a small space challenge like this? I'm so inspired!

Love it!  We have four boys in a room, but our daughter has her own room.  :)  Thankfully we have the space for that.

I love that bedroom!! We have 3 in one room - 2 in another, and oldest one gets his "own" space in what was a sort of mud/laundry room. The key, for us, is to keep down on possessions. 10 changes of clothes each, a few categories of toys - with only one type out at a time. The less stuff to manage, the more space for people.

It's great that she managed to fit three kids in there but those shelves above that baby change made me go "ahhhh!". I suspect as soon as the baby starts moving, another solution will need to be found!
