Decor ideas for a girl's bedroom
Be inspired to create the perfect bedroom for a little girl or young lady. We show you different bedroom designs that would fit into any home and can easily and affordably be duplicated.
ABOVE: This sunny girl's bedroom in white and lemon yellow is fresh and airy. The simple bed design is finished off with an upholstered headboard, with matching trim around the sides of the bed. Yellow lampshades, a green and yellow carpet and painted wardrobe all add to the look.
Create the look by painting pine or second hand furniture with two coats of white paint and adding a single colour, taken from fabrics or accessories used in the room.
ABOVE: This pink and green dream bedroom has all the frilly trimmings that every little girl loves in a bedroom. Soft green walls and pink fabric create a room that is calm and girly, without being over the top.
Create the look by adding a coronet above the bed made from SupaWood, covered in matching fabric to coordinate with bedding and curtains. Furniture doesn't have to be expensive and conventional! For example, cover different sized storage boxes in fabric and stack one on top of the other.
ABOVE: Cool feminine room in white and blue has just enough frills to be modern. The matching lampshades and upholstered headboard stand out against the white bedding and fabric.
Create the look by selecting two colours and staying with these. Because the walls and fabric are patterned, clutter needs to be kept to a minimum. An area rug and an upholstered ottoman or two can be added if your daughter likes to hang out in the room with her friends.
ABOVE: A modern take on a traditional bedroom with its wrought iron bed. The cream furniture with light blue trim add a small punch of bright colour.
Create the look by just adding splashes of colour to painted plain ivory or white furniture. Add throws and accent pillows to bedding.
ABOVE: Pink princess bedroom in pinks and white, with a sheer curtain draped from a wall-mounted coronet and pink painted furniture combine to create a room that is dainty and feminine with plenty of practical storage and seating. Your little princess can have a room befitting her high status if you use sheer fabrics and fanciful details.
Create the look by combining stripes, checks, and floral fabrics. But keep the background colour the same and then choose one colour - pink - to repeat in almost every fabric. Ruffles on the side of the bed allow for underbed storage.
ABOVE: A country miss bedroom with beadboard bed and furniture. Lattic wallpaper combines with floral fabrics in shades of blue, green and pink to create a room that is casual and feminine.
Create the look with affordable pine furniture, lightly sanded and cleaned before applying acrylic sheen in an ivory white. Place a few soft toys on the bed, a flower vase on a desk with fresh flowers in it, and hang paintings or photographs on the walls. You can also add different accent items that compliment the theme design of the bedroom.
ABOVE: Modern styling and space saving design for two single beds leave plenty of space for play. Creamy white and a fresh green visually enlarge and brighten the bedroom.
Create the look in a small bedroom by incorporating plenty of storage. Clean lines, solid colours and simple details are best when considering furniture and upholstery for small rooms, as they create the illusion of extra space.

Create the look with hand painted designs on the walls and painted furniture. Select a modern bed that goes with the theme design of the bedroom. There are variety of options available for bedroom furniture, you can go for bedroom set which includes the bed, side tables, and matching closets, dresser and mirror.
ABOVE: Bedroom for a modern miss that requires plenty of storage. Creamy white and a soft blue combine to create a bedroom that is fresh and vibrant.
Create the look with hand-me-down pieces, lightly sanded and painted in a soft ivory. Don't try to hide an angled wall or ceiling - make it a feature in the room. Or make use of what is already in place with a few changes - you will be surprised at how you can turn items that are already in her bedroom into something new!
ABOVE: Add accessories to a bedroom to create a whimsical bedroom. The glass chandelier is the inspiration for the room and lends to the romantic design.
Create the look by collecting vintage pieces from family, friends or second hand shops. Spray with white paint and upholster or add slipcovers to finish off. Give new life to old pieces: A rocking horse can become a design element and an old standard lamp is easily transformed with a coat of paint and a new lampshade.
ABOVE: A mix of pastel shades of pink, blue and white come together to create a bedroom for a young lady.
Create the look with tea-stained florals, comfortable slipcovered chairs, vintage accessories, and painted furniture. No matter what her age, there are certain things that a girl will always like, so use such elements to decorate the bedroom. Soft toys, paintings, flower vases, flowers, and music are some such ideas.
ABOVE: The lower walls in this bedroom are covered in cream painted beadboard, with the top of the wall painted in a line green. Against this backdrop, patterned valance and accessories pop with colour. A soft rug warms the hardwood and carries the feminine theme through to the flooring, while an upholstered fabric headboard is a truly luxe touch.
Create the look with a new set of pink and green bedding. Finish the look with decorative accessories, such as a matching window valance, a simple lamp with matching shade and a simple rug.
ABOVE: Kids rooms are great place to get creative with window treatments. Fabric provides unlimited creative options. You can get creative with fabric in the window treatments, bedding or hanging fabric in other places.
Rely on room photos for inspiration. If you find your budget is limited, consider the save and splurge strategy, i.e. splurge on the high impact areas you know you’ll never be able to tackle on your own, and consider alternative options for the other areas. For example, shop for funiture at secondhand stores and learn how to refinish them on your own. You’ll then save on furniture, and have some budget to hire out for the window treatments, or wall paper.
