A year ago I was trying to figure out what chairs to get for Lillie and Elliott for their first birthday. Jack's chair was red and I wanted to coordinate Lillie and Elliott's to go with his. We'll, I ended up with a green polka dot chair for Elliott and a pink polka dot for Lillie. Not really coordinating, but I like them.
Lillie and Elliott have successfully climbed out of their bed once or twice, so now we are trying to decide if it's a good time to move them to twin beds or not. I'm pretty sure by Christmas time they won't be in their baby beds anymore. Since my three kids all share a small room, Lillie will get Jack's bed and Jack and Elliott will get the bunk beds we bought for Lydia and Mary when they lived with us.
I've decided that for their birthdays or Christmas I'm going to ask for bedding for all three of them. The big question is how do I coordinate a small bedroom shared by 3, 2 boys and 1 girl. There are lots of pink/blue combinations, but I'm not really feeling that so much. I've been doing some researching and I have my best friend Ellie on the look out too. What do you think? Throw your decorating ideas out there.
Here are some pictures I like that have potential. I don't know that there is one picture that I love everything in it, but it gets the juices flowing. They didn't upload in the order I wanted them to, but when I try to rearrange them it's not posting correctly... anyway you get the picture.

I love these colors and I think you could use this color palate for a boy girl room.
This is a big picture view of a room that used the materials in the first picture.
This is an inspiration board from a different website/blog. I think my first two pictures got their inspiration from the top middle picture on this inspiration board, or other way around, but they are different sites with too similar of bedding for it not to be.
I like that this is simple and it's not the typical blue/pink combo. I think its a good idea, I don't know that this idea would work since there is not just a boy and a girl sharing a room, but 2 boys and a girl. It might be a little too uncoordinated for a small space. I don't know.
Another idea, this was a thought from Ellie, is to do matching solid quilts/duvets and then personalize each one with different sheets and pillows. Company Kids seems to have a good variety of options for that idea.
