Lottie and William share a room. They have shared since William left my bedside at 8 months old and up until now things have gone really well. They chatter and play and get on fabulously. But lately Lottie has been unhappy in the top bunk. I am not brave enough to put Will up there quite yet, so I am afraid she is stuck up there for a while. To cheer her up I decided to hang some old party bunting in their room. Big mistake. Lottie adores it but now Will is miserable and says it is a girls room. Well just take it down you say....not so easy. Lottie is adamant that the only thing making the top bunk bearable is the bunting. This is when I throw my hands up and roll my eyes. I want them both to be happy, and I do agree that the room is looking rather girly.
I am working on Will's quilt to try and appease him a little but I think this is just the start of a long running battle and I have no choice but to be referee. So if anyone has any decorating tips, I am open to new ideas. At the moment, their room has white walls, white bunks, white ikea expedit units with red boxes and assorted childrens junk throughout. I am not one for themes in kids bedrooms, more of a throw it all together and hope for the best kind of gal. What do you all think? Is it possible to make everyone happy?
