Designing the perfect nursery for your little bundle-to-be can be intimidating. Add a second pea to the pod, and the idea can be downright stressful. Feeling a little overwhelmed? Don’t worry. Designing a nursery for two is not that different from designing any other space. There are just a few things to keep in mind.

When it comes to twin nurseries, less is definitely more. Having twins should mean double the fun, not double the stuff. While it’s hard to get around having two cribs, you’ll be surprised how much your little duo can share. That said, with space at a premium, keeping your design fairly simple and clean-cut is a must.

Focus on function. With two babies to look after, it’s extra important to be able to lay your hands on what you need, when you need it. Easy-to-access storage, extra seating, and multi-functional furnishings make a world of difference to your daily life.

Designing a nursery for mix-gender twins doesn’t have to be limiting. There are plenty of wonderful gender-neutral themes and color schemes to choose from!

Need a little inspiration? These beautiful twin nurseries will take you from overwhelmed to overjoyed in moments!

    Whimsy and Neutral

    Finnian's Moon Interiors

    A neutral palette is a smart choice for twin nurseries, especially for parents of mixed-gender twins. Think neutral nurseries are boring? Think again! When done well, a neutral palette can provide a beautiful backdrop for a rich and complex space, allowing more subtle design elements, such as pattern and texture, to edge out color and take center stage.

    In this sweet and neutral twin nursery from Finnian’s Moon Interiors, the texture is king. From the embossed carpet to the hand-crocheted pendant covers, the design offers an understated yet visual-stimulating alternative to the traditional colorful nursery palette.

    About This Term: Primary Bedroom

    Many real estate associations, including the National Association of Home Builders, have classified the term "Master Bedroom" as discriminatory. "Primary Bedroom" is the name now widely used among the real estate community and better reflects the purpose of the room.
