My twins are about to turn three (I either sniffle at that thought or shout “hooray!” in my head depending on the day…no…minute), and it’s due time they get “big kid beds” of their very own. They are beyond excited.
This, of course, has resulted in weeks and endless hours of creative Google searches seeking out the bed that was just right while also budget friendly. Below are my favorites, in no particular order (ok, there is an order: leading off with my all-time favorite!).
1. Jenny Lind from Land of Nod: I have drooled over this bed for years! I love the classic, vintage look of a Jenny Lind bed. There is something so sweet about it! If budget weren’t an option (remember with twins, I have to buy double!), I would have looked no further and bought two of these immediately.
2. Little Seeds Monarch Hill Little Wren Bed: This bed by Little Seeds has much of the charm of the Jenny Lind bed, but at a more reasonable price tag (Target and other sites definitely have this bed on sale from time to time, which helps even more). I also love that I can buy it from Target, which means easy returns if there are issues.
3. Bed, Bath & Beyond: Verona Home Lavera Industrial Metal Frame: This bed has a lovely, classic feel to it. I think it definitely delivers on a vintage/farmhouse vibe but doesn’t have the spindles that I, for whatever reason, simply love!
4. Target: Inspire Q Caledonia Metal Bed Twin: Another solid choice from Target (and again, awesome option to purchase online but return in store if needed). My biggest concern with this bed is the circular features of the design and what body parts my children might get stuck in those circles! (I wish I were joking)
After triple checking that the Jenny Lind was definitely out of budget (yep, still to expensive!), I landed on the second option, the Little Seeds bed!
I love the vintage feel of the Little Seeds bed, giving the elements I love of the Jenny Lind style without the Jenny Lind price tag. The bed was actually just on sale at Target, so I was able to snag two of these at a pretty good price!
I’m anxious awaiting the arrival of these bed frames, and as soon as I pull the trigger on mattresses and box springs, we’ll be good to go. It’s going to be super adorable getting these beds set up for the twins!
And to continue pulling the room together (which had been a bit sad since we moved into our house – not a lot of decor and a random assortment of furniture!), bedding and other details will definitely pull the space together. While I love farmhouse styles, I love making our space a little more “modern farmhouse” with some bright pops of color, especially for the kids!

Pulling together all of the details is so much fun! Since we already own the Bar Rug from Land of Nod, I thought it would be fun to draw out some of those colors with the pink and green quilts. We can add in some pattern details with fun sheets that fit their different personalities!
And I love the idea of hanging their first initials above their beds. I would eventually want to swap the letters out for a light, like the World Market Ethan wall sconce (we actually have two sconces in our master bedroom and one above our 5-year-old’s bed) – I love the look and they’re super affordable – but I think the twins need to be a little bit older than three before having lights above their beds. We can’t introduce too many new things at once!
A modern farmhouse style room for my twins is going to be so much fun to design and I can’t wait to share updates as things continue to come together!
