    Opposite-sex kids shared room decor

    Advertisements
    I want to do something awesome for Damien and Lyric's room, but I'm having a creative block. They are each very stereotypically boy/girl- she loves princesses and fairies and pink and purple and he loves superheroes and badguys. Don't ask me how this happened, I am so not a princess person AT ALL. It's like she was born a princess and nothing I could do would ever remove that.

    ANYWAY.

    I want their new room to be awesome but also not completely disjointed- they had an adorable Winnie the Pooh room in our apartment in California, but Damien is kind of growing out of that now.

    Any thoughts/ideas? I don't hate the idea of just doing the wall behind each of their beds in different styles, but I want it to be not too disjointed.

    Magical kingdom. She gets the fairies and princesses, he gets the dragons and knights

    Ocean. She gets mermaids and coral reefs, he gets pirates and sharks.

    Are there any movies they both like? Gnomeo and Juliet or something?

    Maybe you could do her side as the Red side and have the girl (Juliet) on there and then his side in blue with Gnomeo and the other guys?

    This magical kingdom of which you speak, it may be the answer.

    I was trying to think of another movie they both like enough to put on their walls- when I did the Winnie the Pooh room they were both big fans, but their interests have diverged a lot in the last year. You should hear them trying to choose a movie to watch together, it's like angry squirrels in a shouting match.

    Pirates and princesses! That would be cute! Ds will be sharing a room with the new bebe girl and I think I'm just a boring head and doing neutral colors, maybe a ABC theme since ds is starting to get interested in letters.

    Before I scrolled down, those were the exact ones I was going to suggest! I especially love the medieval theme one

    I immediately thought of a castle, with Lyric's half decorated with fairies and princess stuff and Damien's half decorated with a dragon and a knight in shining armor to slay it.

    LEGO has been picking up speed with girls and boys lately.

    Their themes don't just favor us guys anymore!

    If you're painting the walls it would be a super easy way to go since they characters are pretty simple and they cover the full range of super heroes and princesses etc.
