    How To Create The Perfect Room For Girls

     

    Creating the perfect bedroom for your little princesses can often be a stressful task. Choosing the right colours, patterns and furniture can play a huge role in creating an environment that is relaxing and stimulating whilst reflecting their interests and personalities as they grow.

    From newborns to young women they require a space where they can escape from everyday life and enjoy a place of magic or relaxation that is the perfect balance of fun and practicality.

     

     

     

    Nursery

    Every little girl deserves a splash of pink in her first bedroom or if you are not a fan of pink you can always opt for other complimentary pastel tones such as lilac, lemon or peach. Pale pastel pink looks wonderful with traditional crisp white walls or can also be paired with sumptuous pebble grey for a slightly more contemporary feel. White furniture works particularly well in girls nurseries as it creates a bright and uplifting feel and also creates an illusion of space and light in more compact interior spaces. Opt for plain walls and detailed accessories, blankets and curtains so they can be interchanged without clashing with the interior backdrop.

     

    Toddlers

    Toddler girls can often be difficult to decorate for as they are still at an age where they have not chosen any hobbies or particular likes and dislikes. Try and opt for a cot bed that has a three in one function as this will allow them to move on from their baby bed and progress through to a more ‘grown up’ sleeping and seating area. Opt for stimulating accessories and wall art in colours and patterns that will allow them to play in a relaxed yet educational environment. Once again try and stick to lighter furniture as it creates an open and relaxed space for them to enjoy.

     

    5-12 year olds

    This particular age bracket is a time where you find your little ones are growing into older and more sensible children. Be prepared to change their rooms a few times during this time as their hobbies and personalities begin to develop. Younger girls will appreciate a magical fairytale setting or perhaps a room inspired by their favourite Disney characters or as they edge nearer to their teenage years this can be adapted to reflect their favourite boy band, hobby or interests.

     

    Teenagers

    Hold on to your hats! As a former teenage girl I can tell you first hand that these are the years where your children will begin to think that they are much older and more mature than they really are yet they still like to hold on to some of that childhood sense of fun. Opt for sophisticated adult furniture such as chic black or mirrored designs but team them with bold and funky colors and patterns and girly fabrics and bedding. Create a little bit of glamour whilst maintaining a young a fresh interior feel. A fabulous feature wallpaper or bold rug will create a warm and inviting space, but be sure to leave some wall space for the endless posters of their favourite bands, film stars and hunky reality stars (believe me there will be many!)

     

    18+

    Whether your young adult daughters decide to stay or fly the nest they will always need a space to call their own within your home. Creating a space that will take them from their late teens and into their 20s can often seem a little daunting. Opt for sophisticated and chic designer colour palettes that are feminine and yet at the same time provide a sense of opulence and refinement. Monochrome interiors make a wonderful base for adding a pop of colour with bedding or accessories and also make sure that your statement furniture item is a fabulous dressing table where they can enjoy a wonderful pamper session but can also double up as a desk for any research or university work.
