As little girls grow older, they want and assert more independence and adventure out while trying to figure out who they are. Every girl wants a bedroom that is fun and embodies who she is.
For starters, spicing up the room up with bright fun colors is always a great place to begin this transformation. Try letting them choose two colors that blend well together. For example two shades of purple or a purple/pink combination. This will allow them to choose colors they like and are inspired by, while you still being able to say you opinion as well.
Next, try adding some funky furniture. Ikea and Target have great funky and original looking pieces that are relatively inexpensive and can really liven up the room. Look for furniture that is comfortable yet exciting. Such as fury bean bag chair, fuzzy rugs, egg shaped chairs or small hammocks. Having a really cool lamp is always interesting too. The right lighting in a room could truly make all the difference. Simple changes such as adding throw pillows to the bed or changing the bedding in general can also be a great addition or change to the room.
Decorative stickers are always a plus and add more of a personal touch to the design. Depending on the age of the girl; there’s a wide variety to choose from. It can be her favorite Disney character, motivational quotes, butterfly stickers or their initials. Great thing about the stickers is that your choices are endless. If you really want to think out of the box; your local retail stores carry chalk board stickers that come in all shapes and it’s cool for all ages. Which can be used for several reasons; such as a calendar, a things to do board or a signature space for their friends.
There is no major rhyme or reason to putting the room together. At the end of the day; the goal is to make sure the room is fun, inviting, and filled with all things she loves which makes her feel special.
