I’m busy on an exciting project – decorating my daughters bedroom on a budget so this guest post about creating a magical room for your daughter is just perfect timing. I think you will agree there are some great tips here!

When it comes to making your little girl’s dream of becoming a princess come true, where better to start than with her bedroom? We’ve put together a guide to turning a plain old room into something enchanting:

Choose girly shades, but in an innovative way

You may be tempted to plaster the walls with baby pink paint or magenta wallpaper, but why not give the room a more stylish edge that will let the extra special accessories you fill it with stand out even more? Consider going for a neutral colour like beige for the walls, with a grown-up edge courtesy of one feature wall in chocolate brown as HGTV suggests? Now have fun with bold curtains, bedding, lamps and rugs to give it that playful streak.

Get arty

If it’s not practical to paint the walls, perhaps because you rent your home, why not hang a brightly-coloured piece of art in the centre of the largest wall? Even better, spend an afternoon creating a masterpiece with your little girl – she’ll love having her own work in pride of place!

Think long term

Choosing a simple but comfy white bed like one from the range here will allow you to go as wild or as subtle as you like with the rest of the décor, without it clashing with the central feature. It’ll also allow you to change the room’s style in the future, without having to change the bed.

 Let her feel all grown up

Every girl loves a dressing table, so make sure it’s a feature of her newly-styled room. Match it to the bed for a neat and stylish finish.

Bring in the fairies

Fairy lights in the bedroom look fantastic for the festive season, but they needn’t just be for Christmas! Pink fairy lights around a bed, curtain rail or mirror will create a magical atmosphere that’s for a fairytale princess!

If she’s not into pretty pink…

Not all little girls want a typically girly room: create something that is young and fun with a pop-art-inspired room. Think graphic patterned rugs, citrus-bright walls and a rainbow of cushions on the bed. White furniture and a white ceiling will ensure the look doesn’t become overpowering, and opt for curtains or blinds in light colours, to ensure the room still gets maximum daylight to keep it feeling fresh and inviting.
