Now it's a hip, updated bedroom that they can share while still being themselves. Individual sleeping and working areas give the brothers space to do their own thing. Putting the desks and beds across from each other on opposite walls creates balance and opens up the floor space. Although there are more distinct areas, the room still works together as a shared space. Interior designer Lee Snijders and design coordinators Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge tie in two favorite colors, brown and green, and add a kick with burnt orange accents.
