Since most little girls love the colors of pink, yellow and lavender… plus they all seem to love flowers and butterflies… decorating bedrooms for little girls ends up being a breeze!
If the little girl you’re going to decorate a bedroom for has a favorite flower then things are that much easier. Even if she doesn’t have a favorite flower though, she may love a certain type of butterfly, or she may already have a favorite color too. And any of these preferences can be easily used to create a special decorating theme to build on in her bedroom.
If your little girl has a favorite color then start decorating her room based on that color. It’s not usually the best idea to paint the walls fully in her favorite color though, unless it’s a very soft color such as buttercup yellow. If she prefers pink or purple shades, then use those as accents in wall borders, stencils, or other decorative touches instead.
A little girl’s bed is usually the very best place to make the largest impression with her new bedroom decorating theme. In any bedroom, the bed is often the primary focal point, and everything else is put into place as supporting accents to the overall theme.
So if your little girl loves a specific kind of flower such as daisies, then you’d start your decorating theme by finding a full bedding set for her which is covered with those flowers. Bedding sets can vary greatly too. You might find a bedspread which has a field of daisies on it, or you may come across a gorgeous comforter which features one giant daisy flower instead.
When buying her new flower bedding set don’t forget to get matching sheets and pillow cases, a bed skirt, and plenty of pillow shams too. You might also want to buy some throw pillows to fit with the new design theme – either pillows which have different designs of the same flower on them, or pillows which are shaped like her favorite flower will work well.
Another easy way to change the look of the overall bedroom is to put up new curtains, drapes, or other window decor. Since you’re decorating for a little girl, you could put up airy, light feeling curtains or shears which feature her favorite color. Alternatively you could add a window shade or blind which has pictures of the flowers she loves embedded in it, or you could put cling decals all over her window which feature flowers, butterflies, and colors she loves.
Other small touches which can add to your overall decorating theme for the little girl’s bedroom include putting in new lamps or replacing the lampshades, hanging photos or posters on the wall, and hanging up stuffed flowers and butterflies which feature her favorite colors too.
