Colorful Girl’s Rooms
A child’s bedroom space is one of the most fun places to decorate in the home because children will always welcome bright colors and playful patterns. Last year I wrote an article all about color in boy’s rooms so today let’s focus on girl’s rooms, and all the ways to add color to these youthful yet feminine spaces.
I just finished up my own daughter’s room a few months ago in her preferred shades of aqua and lavender, adding layers of pattern and color with fabric, bedding, painted pieces, and accessories. Here’s a peek at twenty favorite feminine spaces from the archives, and five different ways to add color to a special little girl’s room in your home.
Add Color With Paint. Tried and true, a coat of paint on the walls is the easiest way to add a lovely shade of color to a girl’s room, choose a soft pastel or a vibrant hue to set the palette for the space.
Add Color With Bedding. Floral motifs always complement a girlish space and will pair perfectly with stripes and polka dots too.
Add Color With Window Treatments. Whether you choose classic window panels or a roman shade, the window is another opportunity to use fabric to inject bright color or pretty pattern into a girl’s room.
Add Color With Painted Furniture. Introducing a painted piece of furniture into a girl’s room in the form of a dresser, a desk, her bed, or accent chairs is a playful way to introduce a bright or subtle shade of blue, green, pink, purple, green, or yellow.
Add Color With Accessories. If you refrain from painting the walls, no worries. White or neutral walls are a perfect backdrop for adding color with all the extras: a rug, a lamp, bins for storage, decorative pillows, even extra seating.
What colors have you chosen (or have your girl’s picked) for their bedroom?
