I have a 2 yo DS and a 4 1/2 yo DD that will be sharing a room with bunk beds for the time being.

Welcome timandyo.

If children need to share a room, neutral walls will give both a chance to enjoy their own decorations. Try to give them each their own pin up cork boards. Color and visual interest are usually added by the children themselves—in abundance. Is there a color that's a favorite of each of them? An animal? A place? Kids get into all sorts of stuff, and a lot of times, that's the best way to pick how to get started. The trick is to keep the theme flexible and suggested in the larger colors and decor, and let a few specific items bring the theme into focus. This keeps the theme changeable over time, which is a good thing considering children's tastes change as they grow up.

Is there a way you can make each of
