A New (Shared) Bedroom with Raymour & Flanigan

From the moment we mentioned the idea of bunk beds for their new room, the girls were SO excited. Okay, maybe Millie was slightly more excited as with first child status comes top bunk bed rights, but the feeling was overall mutual. Not only would this be a cool new way to sleep, but there are many ways to turn a bunk bed into a pirate ship & hide out. And from a slightly different perspective, mom & dad were psyched to create some extra space & storage. Win, win!

With the help of Raymour & Flanigan, we outfitted the girls new room with the aforementioned bunk beds, a nightstand & dresser. I've been so pleased with the quality of this brand's products, the service in-store & at delivery, and the way the girls have responded to their new furniture. Knowing they have a new room & furniture actually encourages them to take better care of their space. What a novel concept!

Now, I am FAR from being an interior designer, but what I can say is that (along with the girls') we've created a space where they love to play. It's well-loved (note crayon on every surface except for new furniture!), filled with natural light & organized well enough that they know where every toy or book belongs at pick up time. And in a small NYC apartment, that is KEY.

We'll get a new rug eventually, but for now a combination old play mat/small rug is doing the job...

Let me get back to storage for a moment. With this particular bunk bed, you can either pull out the bottom & use as a trundle bed (a twin mattress fits perfectly) or use as extra storage. We went with the latter & it has been such a lifesaver! I'm getting ready to switch out their clothes for the season & everything (& more) fits. Let all the space-starved parents say HURRAH!

Please note: drawer only pulled out halfway as it's already stuffed to the gills!
Flora & Fauna bedding by Dwell Studio, which was exactly what I was looking for - girly, not cutesy.
Loving this light blanket from Fine Foutas! Made in Tunisia from organic cotton,
it's perfect for naps or a picnic outdoors & towel at the beach.
Soft, versatile & by the way, they're having a great sale right now...
Tried my hand at the shoe rack/toy organizer I've seen on Pinterest a million times,
& guess what... it's brilliant!

I'm so happy my girls have a new room they love!

Love the bunkbeds. My girls would probably benefit from this because we are tight with space with two beds in the room.

We're thinking of bunking the kids so this helpful! I really love that drawer option instead of a trundle. The room looks great! I bet that the girls are thrilled. :)

Gah I'm looking into bunk beds and I can't decide between the trundle for when my niece or nephew sleep over and extra storage because, storage is awesome! This is a very nice bunk bed set and your girls' room is adorable! :)

What a great bed! I can't believe all the storage there is too! Those kiddos are so lucky.

The closet storage solution is really quite genius. Considering how messy kids can get, it's amazing what a simple idea like that rack can do! The room looks positively organized and manageable! Haha!
