Siblings will jump at the chance to bunk up together when they see these 8 inspiring shared spaces!
For the past few months, I’ve been trying to convince my husband of the benefits of shared rooms for the kids. I have to admit that one of my reasons is a little selfish, as we live in a small 3-bedroom apartment, and I would love an office/sewing room. But I also remember sharing a room with my sister when we were little and have fond memories of those days; we often laugh at how we used to fight and would put tape on the floors to delimit our spaces.
Actually, my kids are dreaming of sharing a room, so I’ve gathered some of my favorite shared bedrooms—hopefully to inspire my husband and a few of you, too!

Once again, the adjacent beds work so well. I love the girly color palette, just enough shades of pink to make everyone happy! And don’t you think every room should have a reading nook, even better if it’s a teepee!
