Shared Bedroom Space Inspiration

So just when I had most of the elements decided for Lila's bedroom, we decided that in a few months we'd move Lila over to Evy's room and give them a shared space to open up the 3rd bedroom for extra space.  Great... now what?!?!  Back to the drawing board I guess...

After a little internet scouring and inspiration gathering, I'm finding I'm drawn many times to this Moroccan vintage style for nursery and little girls rooms.  It's just so versatile and something that they can grow into and morph as their personalities evolve.  And it seems like it would accompany different personalities.  So I've decided to try and turn their room into our take of this style.  These are some of the pics I've been collecting for inspiration.

This picture just says it all, so much casual bohemian glamour fit for a little princess!  Love love love this nursery from One Claire Day!

This is a clip from Flea Market Style Magazine.  I love the wall art gallery mix ups, and the paper lanterns are cool.

Here are some of the elements I'm spying out around town....
Land of Nod Banner

Etsy StarlitNestGifts Banner

Land of Nod floor Pouf

These new quilts from Land of Nod are really fun.  Not sure yet if I want to keep the bedding white/neutral with some colorful pillows or add a comforter like this.

I'm loving these rugs from West Elm

Istanbul Rug
 Souk Rug

Pillow - Etsy shop Gate 17

Paper Lanterns - Land of Nod

This canopy is gorgeous from Cost Plus

And these from Urban Outfitters

And I love this wall art from Land of Nod even though it really doesn't fit in... ha ha

And finally found this cabinet/dresser on Craigslist but waiting to see if they still have it....

or this one...

Enjoy your week!

Chevron Stripes

So yes they've been around forever, and yes they are super trendy but I just love chevron stripes.  They had a fun twist to any decor; rugs, furniture, blankets, bedding, clothing, etc.  I'm trying to find a rug for our living room where the kids play so they have some padding.  I'm thinking grey and white,  but there are so many fun colors! 
Love this one but it quickly sold out in the Grey color...
Pottery Barn Kids Chevron Striped Rug with Fringe
This one is cute from West Elm but I like the cotton dhurrie versions better.

Urban Outfitters has this version in a ton of colors:

Love this zig zag duvet cover from Urban Outfitters:

Anthropologie's Endpoint Dress

Finley and Oliver

I even saw chevron stripes on the trash cans downtown, even our trash is trendy!!!
