shared girls room inspiration

Last weekend we started to paint the nursery a light pink. We began on one wall and after painting it and letting it dry, the color was much darker than our sample we tested, so we knew we needed to start over. Later that same night Mike and I were hanging on the couch and began discussing moving the baby into Kensi's room. We want to do this eventually, so why not just do it now? We know the new babe will be in our room for the first several months since I'll breastfeed, but it makes more sense to design one shared room rather than focusing on two separate girls room at this time. So we're going for it! 

I'm a little obsessed with the BabyLit books by Jennifer Adams & Alison Oliver. We're adding new books from the series at nearly every birthday & Christmas and I often add them into our baby gifts for friends and family. Earlier this year we added Midsummer Night’s Dream to our collection and I was completely head over heels in love with the colors in each illustration. I love muted colors of pink and turquoise mixed with black and white patterns and decided to use this book as inspiration for our shared girls room. 
We decided to use the largest bedroom for their shared room and needed to start with a blank slate. We’re priming and painting the walls with Sherwin Williams Eider White (we love love LOVE this color and have used it in every bedroom) and deciding what shade of pink to paint the ceiling. 

We currently have both beds in the Jenny Lind style and purchased a convertible crib for Finn. We also have the Swiss Dot bedding for baby girl and still searching for the perfect sheet set for Kensi. I love this over dyed turquoise rug as it perfectly compliments the colors from the board book, and Baby Jives' cloud and star mobile adds the perfect touch of whimsy to the little girls' room. 
I can't wait for all this to come together and then we can start on Finn's new room.
