Don't fret, as with some clever thinking and creative design, your favorite nursery ideas can easily be adapted to suit both new arrivals. Though deciding on a color scheme, selecting cribs or bassinets and accessorizing the space may not all happen in one go, building a nursery for twin siblings is an exciting experience which should be embraced.
Knowing you're having same-sex twins can make it easy to reach for the classics but there are lots of fun, functional and adorable designs out there to help you pull a modern look together perfectly. The rich earthy tones of this material beautifully complement the sage green scalloped wall paint idea. Here, Karlee Zacky (opens in new tab), combined a floral printed wallpaper design with framed wall decor ideas.
Paired with plush soft toys and cushions, we imagine this is accommodation is much more comfier than a giant wooden boat! By adding a mobile above each of the cribs, each child has a visual stimulus to concentrate on - perfect for if one wakes up earlier than the other!
And on that note, twin mum and home renovator, Emma Jane Lee (opens in new tab) says: 'Put the better sleeper further from the door so you can grab the other quickly when they wake up.'
Constantly picking up and nursing two children can play havoc on your hips and feet, so a window seat idea is ideal to alleviate strains and provide a bit of respite for mum and dad, as Ashli Delavan (opens in new tab) knows all too well.
Be sure to keep the sunlight or street lights out of their eyes with a good children's room window treatment idea. The chandelier (that my husband didn’t think we needed), became their favorite thing to gaze at as babies, it would calm them every time.
'That Snuggle me organic lounger (opens in new tab) on the ottoman saved my life while I was nursing one baby at a time in that chair. Most nursery ideas for twins incorporate a soft pastel or white palette, but have you ever considered black bedroom decor? Soften the scheme with a good rug design and some shelves, like Christina Quek-Slippy (opens in new tab) has shown us on her Instagram page. So if you don't fancy kitting out a twin boys nursery idea with brash primary colors or bland blue bedroom decor - incorporate lots of texture!
Think airy voile curtains, weaved baskets and rattan or bamboo furniture to create an organic space. We particularly love the cribs with their beaded detail design by Andrea Pion Pierre (opens in new tab).
Just like twin mom Raihna Kaylor (opens in new tab), filling it with stars, rockets, planets and more makes for an exciting finish. A busy pattern is great to disguise milk spills or whoopsies and we love the general mix of themes in this white bedroom design.
From a velvet art deco-inspired chair, Gothic arched wall hangings and a Boho footstool, the world is your (and their) oyster. Starting off with two milk convertible 3-in-1 crib beds by Little Guy Comfort (opens in new tab), the scheme was extenuated with a floral feature wall ideas, a lush lilac rug and two cute and coordinated faux sheepskin heart rugs by Kromer Carpets (opens in new tab). Next, order the twins custom names through an online independent retailer and finally decorate with wall stickers. The marble table design with fresh flowers is a brave but luxurious move in this space for your little angels.
Opt for color schemes based on yellow or green instead of typical ‘girly pink’ or ‘boyish blue’ motifs.'
