Keira and husband, Paul, have two young girls, Katya and Brenna, who will be sharing a bedroom in their 100-year-old Victorian home. Since her in-laws are frequent guests, the second-floor bedrooms are fairly crowded, which is why she's decided to turn the attic into a bedroom for the girls. Katya, a budding designer at the tender age of two, is adamant that the room be her favorite color, purple, but Keira is concerned the girls will outgrow it quickly. She definitely wants to incorporate fun, inspiring colors for a whimsical environment, but she also wants them to have longevity to last into their teenage years.
Jane's design tip: Purple is a great gender-neutral color, perfect for girls and boys!
