Ask an Expert: How to decorate a shared kids’ room
Have you seen the latest issue of Inside Out magazine? You can find us on the Ask an Expert page, replying to a reader’s interiors dilemma. This month, we offered a solution to a reader’s question on how to decorate her six-year-old twin daughters’ shared room so it’s ‘matchy but different’.
In the meantime, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite shared children’s bedrooms to inspire you, where each child’s space is well-defined yet co-ordinated.
