    aww, its so fun to finally decorate! We have our sons things on one half of the room and daughters on the other half....she is 5 as well. I just decorated her half for her and his half for him. They will only be sharing a room until we move mid august to a bigger place.

    my neighbour did her nursery bright orange and got an animal border to put round the room - it wasnt a real baby border but suitable for quite a few yrs. her son is nearlly 7 and has just had it painted brown and the border changed to dinosaurs as he doesnt like animals.

    We have got yellow walls with red curtains, lamps and carpet and multi coloured animal border. It's not babyish but it's bright and cheerful.

    I like the stickers idea! That way you can get away with doing it one colour, saves money on paint!

    my eldests room is in stripes (was a sod to do) but worth it - its blues and green, some thick some thin. it did take alot of patience and masking tape.

    I have the same problem!!! Cant think of how to decorate it for both different sexes and the age gap. (shes 5 too) Step daughter loves high school musical at the mo so im going with reds and blues, that way she can have hsm stuff and baby can have blues. I'm decorating it this weekend!! cant wait!!!

    Hi,

    Ikea have a couple of ranges which might give you inspiration... search for Barnslig and Fabler on their site... e.g. this is a placemat but there's bedding and lighting, everything... I'm going to have one of these I think as it'll last a few years... the illustrations are like Quentin Blake's, love them!
