Canopy White Eyelet Bed
Little girls love to spend time in their bedrooms. It’s a place all of their own, a place where they can not only sleep, but dream. In surrounding them with their favorite things decorating your child’s room can be both fun and rewarding for both of you.
Here’s our five secrets:
HAVE FUN! Take the stress out of decorating, it doesn’t have to be done over night. If she has to sleep in a sleeping bag on the floor for a night or two, make it a camping adventure. Remember that spending time together is what it’s truly about.
RECYCLE IF YOU CAN! Make use of what you already have, you will be surprised what a little paint can do. You have a wooden book case that holds her dolls and toys, paint it your accent color. If her dresser has an attached mirror, remove if from the dresser base and place a new mirror directly to the wall. Change the drawer knobs or handles on her furniture. Changing her furniture around can give her the feel of a all new environment. Instead of purchasing that new comforter, purchase a duvet cover for a new inexpensive look.
LISTEN! Ask your daughter to sit down and either make a list or tell you her favorite things, like her favorite toy, favorite character, favorite TV show, favorite past time, (depending on age!) etc. The idea here is to listen to what your daughter is telling you; after all it is “her” room you both are working on.
SIMPLE IMPACT! I also call this down and dirty (cheap). You can change a room over night by just adding a splashes of color and texture. Pick a color you want to add to the room, now add Pillow shams, throw pillows, change the window treatments and throw down an accent rug. DONE!
THINK AHEAD! As the seasons change, so will your childs likes and dislikes, keep this in the back of your head when decorating. Don’t go overboard unless you know you will have to completely redo the room in a year of two, and of course our pocketbook dictates that decission for a lot of us. Ask yourself, Is she really going to love that hand painted mural of the fairy garden in a few months, or even a few years? Should you really change the carpet to pink or white? Try to explore less permanent options such as framed art and accent “pink” rugs.
