Eva & Owen’s Shared Bedroom

After seeing a shot of Eva and Owen’s bedroom on Instagram, the lovely Laura from Little Frills asked if she could post some pictures and advice on creating a shared bedroom on her blog. Here’s a little peek:

The biggest challenge with creating a girl / boy shared spaces was creating something that reflected each of their identities without having to be completely gender neutral. Eva’s bedding is very girly using mismatching pink patterns from a variety of stores (Country Road, Serena & Lily, Dwell Studio and Land of Nod); whereas the Oliver Jeffers’ artwork over Owen’s cot and above the bookcase add a boyish element. I needed something to tie it all together, and the Gold Bar rug from Land of Nod seemed to fit perfectly.

Fishin’

This is Eva’s first experience with fishing.

Johnny bought her a little spinning reel and rod, and even though we didn’t catch anything—barely even a nibble!—Eva had lots of fun casting and reeling.

But she have even more fun splashing around on the sandy river bank with her cousins and getting sopping wet!

Cousins. 

For 2 weeks, my brother and his family were up to visit us, and so the house was full of shouting, laughing, running, and tantrums.

Two 1-year-olds, a 2-year-old, a 4-year-old, a 7-year-old, and a teenager.

It was a lot to get on with under a single roof, and of course the kids had a blast. 

Lily and Owen seemed to develop their own dinosaur language as they roared greetings at each other. Being the in-betweener, Ricky would bounce back and forth being trying to keep up with Eva, and keeping Owen enthralled with his antics. Eva chased her older cousin Riley trying to imitate everything that he did. 

I so wish that my brother lived closer and that the cousins got more regular time with each other, and after experiencing a Brisbane ‘winter’, I think my sister-in-law and brother wish that they were up here as well!
