Decking out a girl’s bedroom in a pink theme

Every little girl wants to be a princess and what better way to show her how much she means to you than by creating a princess theme bedroom. No matter how big or how small her room is, there is potential for princess greatness in her bedroom decor.

The ideas below can help you get started on creating the perfect room for your tiny tot.

Pretty in Pink

Have you ever seen a princess who did not like pink? It is rare, so pink is usually the color of choice for a princess theme room. Combine it with white to create the ultimate girl space.

Choose a pink that is not too bright, but not too dull. A shade that lets the pink shine through without dulling it with a brown undertone is ideal. After the walls are painted pink and the trim is painted white, it is time to move on to decorating the space.

Time for Carpet Fun!

Most bedrooms have wall-to-wall carpeting, but even for those that do, there is something special about adding a princess theme area rug. A small decorative rug that can be placed at the side of the bed or in the middle of the floor can really help draw the room together.

It is even more fun to add a rug that is shaped liked a princess crown or even a frog prince. Be sure that the pink in the rug matches the other pink hues in the room. There is nothing worse than a clashing rug in princess room!

Fluffy Covers

You might not want to test the theory of your little girl being a princess by putting a pea under her mattress, but it is a great idea to give her fluffy covers and soft sheets. Of course, you can easily get away with using a solid color comforter or duvet.

Even so, it is a nice detail to add sheets that have a printed princess theme and it’s easy to combine patterned bedding with solid pieces, so every linen doesn’t need to be a “themed” bedding element.

Your daughter will delight in her princess bedding and it will help to create the look and feel you want in the room.

Mirrors, Barrettes, Hair Ribbons, Costume Jewelry, and More

Every princess needs a magic mirror and accessories to go with it. A white framed mirror can be easily decorated by hot gluing some artificial flowers around it or by spray painting the plain frame with metallic spray paint.

Along with the mirror, a collection of combs, barrettes, hair ribbons, and costume jewelry on a child-size dresser add a nice touch and will make your little girl feel quite the pretty princess.

Creating a princess room is easy to do with the right color paint, accessories, bedding, and a little imagination. With a little creative know-how and some input from your pint-sized diva, you can have a brand new bedroom created in under a weekend.

Take the time to shop around and get ideas online about what exactly it is that you and your child want in the room. Not only will it save you time, but shopping around will save you money. Ideas? Leave a comment below!
