I also have a boy/girl room but mine are 5 and 9 and it had to have something they agree on so it is all spongebob and we love it, but they are older. When they first got started sharing I had the wall with his bed blue and hers pink, just the one wall and his theme was spiderman and hers was pink (dora/princess/strawberry shortcake) anything girlie and he didn't mind as long as it didn't touch his stuff. Then it was really nice too but I like the way it is now.
Pat4rod- We must be due the same day!! I just looked at out trackers, hehe!
And the half the room pink and other half bue has crossed my mind. I dont know why I feel I need some thing a little more though. After I move I probably wont have the same enthusasim (sp, I know) to acually do it, lol! Talking about it and doing it are 2 diffrent things:) Thanks for your ideas!
I think we are 22w5d today, we also had a girl after several boys so I also know how you feel wanting everything pink, because I am the same, even her hangers had to be pink. What I hated back then was that there was nothing pink her car seat was gray and her playpen was blue so I made sure she had eveything else PINK! Not to mention pink is also my favorite color.
My son and daughter shared a room for several years until we moved, they were 5 and 8. I'm not into characters, since they seem to get tired of those quickly. We kinds did a his half/ her half thing, they each had a dresser and a shelf on their side of the room, though they shared bunk beds.
Although we still rent, this is the first time I've been able to do a baby's room (the others have shared), and I am excited, too!
I think the half & half thing could be really cute, especially if you go all the way with it: different colored rugs, walls, curtains, etc. Really make it obvious and contrast as much as possible. Or there are a lot of cute neutral themes, like a rainforest. Fisher Price makes rainforest things in boy and girl colors, so you could stick with one theme but have different versions of it.
