Boy Girl Shared Farmhouse Room

Helping folks design their children’s rooms is turning out to be one of my all-time favorite things to do! I’m thrilled to have had several opportunities lately to brighten up the lives of a few special children and it’s about time I shared all of the fun with you.

The Modern Farmhouse

This particular room was designed especially for a 4 year old girl and a baby boy who were going to start sharing a room. The mother wanted a farm theme and was considering paintings some rolling hills and blue skies on the walls. As soon as she mentioned her plan for the mural my thoughts drifted to this crazy cool rug from Ikea ($8). The rest of the room just sort of evolved from there. The Trofast storage piece makes a genius changing table and storage piece for the room and will grow with the kids changing from diapering and baby needs to toys down the road.


I created the second board just in case she had more of an old fashioned farmhouse feel in mind. The inspiration for this room — these sweetie pie sheets from Target ($40). The yellow fabric swatch on the left is for curtains and the fabric sampler on the right is for a one of a kind rag quilt I was planning to make myself.

Sadly, I never heard back from this mom. Not all of my free services are received with open arms, but sometimes they are! I’ll share all my source info for these two room boards next, and then show you another project that had a MUCH, MUCH happier ending! I shared these two boards because I thought someone out there might love them.

Which one is your personal favorite:
Modern or Old Fashioned Farmhouse?

    Wow, Stacy, never knew this side creative side of you. It would be amazing to get tips from you the next time I plan a decor change for Pari’s room. These days, I’m looking for ideas to convert my rectangular balcony into a playscape for Pari. I already have in mind a few things like – a wall that I want to convert into a canvas for free flow painting. Want to install a music wall with old utensils etc. Also a water wall.

    What else could I do to add to the look and make it more play-friendly? :)

    Stacy – you are amazing, offering to do free design work. Twirl wants to redo her room in teenage style. I’m going to tell her about you…and maybe that will be the incentive for her to get it cleaned up! ;-)

    It doesn’t surprise me that you’d be great at decor design, especially with all the fabulous ideas you pin! Love the modern farmhouse board. P.S. Perhaps this is your calling and something you can turn into a business?

    This is so amazing! I wouldn’t be able to decide which farmhouse idea. And I LOVE your pins on Pinterest! It’s how I found your blog.
    Have a great day!

    I have a almost three year old girl, in a bed, and a one year old (in a crib). We are transitioning them into a new room andi need some ideas! I was thinking primary colors because they can grow into them. Help? I really have no vision at all but I really don’t like the way their shared nursery looks right now.
