Creating a Special Space for Your Little Princess
Décor for walls, doors, mirrors and windows, storage, and an ‘oh so perfect’ throw
As we glide into winter our minds are on staying indoors and making our spaces cosy and inviting. Recently we discussed decorating boys bedrooms … never an easy task! But now as we collectively bask in the afterglow of “the wedding” let’s look at decorating your little princess’s bedroom!
Decorating girls bedrooms is always something fun, but it is soooo easy to get carried away and go overboard! A top tip here is to start with two or three background pieces and then build up slowly … you are always going to find something new to add ;-)
A perfect starting point is your walls … every room has them so starting there gives you a wonderful backdrop to the fun that can come later! And, what better to decorate your walls with than a pretty wall decal or two (or even three!).
First up take a look at your room … every room will have some obstacles in the way be it doors, wardrobes, windows, or essential furniture; but we can also use these “obstacles” to decorate on! Now, think about what theme or style you’d like to use. Next up is the FUN bit … choosing the decorations!
Starting with the walls gives you a lot more latitude when it comes to decorating the rest of the room with soft furnishings and other décor items. Vinyl Designs have so many pretty designs to choose to decorate your wall space! Have a look at some of our Kids Wall Decals to get an idea of which theme feels right to you.
Let’s have a play here! We’ll show you a sample of our selection for a dreamy little girls bedroom :-). Our theme is not specific but rather soft and dreamy … you could choose nature, animals – wild, friendly, or forest, or even something fanciful like diamonds and fairy tales!
Don't think about walls only though, our decals can also stick on windows, doors, wardrobe doors, you can use your imagination.
Something tall like the Dandelion Wall Decal would look great next to the bed or cot or on a wardrobe door, you can have it customised with your little girl's name, she'll love that!
You can complement the Dandelion with a flutter of Butterflies Decal (you can choose any two colours from the palette to make up your flutter!). Each Butterflies pack includes 16 butterflies in varying sizes from 8-14cm - plenty to make a lovely show!
Let’s finish off our wall display with a couple of VERY cute bunnies resting just next to the bookcase … you can find the perfect little buns in our Fluffy Bunnies Wall Decal!
If nature and animals themes are not your thing you could opt for something simple and minimal like our Mini dots wall decals, there are 50 dots in each pack and you can create a wallpaper effect without the hassle of real wallpaper!
There you are, you’ve created the perfect backdrop to your room with something on each wall that’s fresh, fun, and simple! Our wall decals are removable (so even if you’re renting you can use them without worry of paintwork getting damaged!) and nearly all come in a choice of 25 different colours – for this room we’d choose two main colours and maybe add either a silver or white as a contrast.
With the background done let’s take a look at some other beautiful décor items that we could use to dress our little princess’s room.
Every room needs storage, and our room is certainly no exception. Whether it’s for toys, shoes, or dress-ups a felted storage bin is perfect … and how very lovely are these Jester Felt Storage Bins from Oon Home?! We also ADORE these Felt Ball Garlands that would look amazing in our little girl’s room! Ps. Oon Home also has some great discount codes ;-)
Whether your room has carpet or timber floors; a lovely rug will always draw the tootsies in! The Marigold Jute and Cotton Rug from Fab Habitat is divine – available in 4 sizes to suit the size of your room (the smallest at 100cm diameter would be perfect for most small bedrooms) from just $99 … with free shipping!
Okay, now to add something a little bit OTT and sumptuous (just what a princess needs!) … the Flüffelbuster Throw from Amigos de Hoy! Oh my gosh(!) the Flüffelbuster is created from silky soft fluffy faux fur, complete with gold lurex sparkles and giant pom poms – it’s soft suedette backing makes it feel heavenly! If it doesn’t make it into your princess’s bedroom don’t blame us! Amigos de Hoy has a beautiful special offer on these throws right now too … be quick!
We hope we’ve given you some inspiration to create a magical room for your little princess!
