How to Design The Perfect Girl's-Bedroom

The interests of young girls are ever changing, so as a parent, you might think it’s almost impossible to design a room that she’ll be happy with for a while. Your daughter will want comfort, privacy and possibly some room to entertain friends. From the ultra girly, to the room that requires a bit of glamour, and everything in between, designing the perfect girl’s room is possible. 

For the Playful Girly Girl: Focus on Patterns & Bold Colors 

Solids are needed to keep a room grounded, but sticking with solids all the way through a design, can look a bit tired and feel somewhat boring, especially to a young girl. Don’t be afraid to be playful with patterned fabric and bold walls. Deck out her bedding and furnishings like chairs, rugs and window treatments, with bold patterns of flowers, stripes, dots or whatever else suits her personality. A local fabric supplier is a wonderful place to look for exactly what she wants.

Bold colors on the wall are a great accent to the patterns scattered throughout the room. If patterned fabric is minimal however, think about adding design to the walls through stick-on decals or painted graphics like flowers, polka dots or swirls.

For the Sophisticated Girl: Think Vintage-Modern & Versatile Furnishings 

There’s no need to spend a fortune when decorating a teen’s bedroom. Take a day and go thrift shopping. There are a ton of hidden gems out there that can make that girly girl get that touch of sophistication she wants in her room.

Look for vintage lighting and furniture that can serve multiple purposes (i.e. a desk that can also be used as a vanity). Paired with subdued colors, whimsical patterns, and inexpensive accessories, you’ve got yourself a girly, yet sophisticated space.

For the Glam Girl: Drama, Drama, & More Drama

Sometimes a girl just wants to be surrounded by all things glamorous. Thankfully, this can be done through fabric choices and accents.

For this particular bedroom, the bed should be the most dramatic piece in the room. The best way to accomplish this is by sticking with satin. Whether the bedding is solid or print, satin, more than any other fabric out there exudes glamour. To increase the drama even further, consider an upholstered headboard, embellished with nail heads or beadwork.  Add a multitude of throw pillows and you’ve got a luxurious and glamorous start to the room.

Lighting also plays a big part so it’s important to be selective. For the best result, a chandelier is a great way to glam up any room. Accent lighting is also important, so think about adding a lamp or wall sconce.

To finish of the design, focus on accents. Add a mirror to the top of a nightstand, add a faux animal rug to the floor and hang up some black and white art prints. These are just some of the many ways you can finalize your glamour design.
