Color Decorating Your Girls Room

When you are theme decorating a girls room, you should know that a good wall color is the best foundation you can have. From that one color alone, you can start choosing decorations that would fit. But since you are most likely going to start this whilst the kid is still a toddler then your mind must be going through palettes of pastels right now. There’s no problem with that, however, your kid would most likely outgrow the pastel and you could end up re-painting the whole room which can cost quite a bit. But if you are fine with that, then here are some great girls bedroom decorating ideas based on certain kinds of colors and at the same time following a girls room theme. The most common color for a girl’s room is pink so we’ll start with that. Pink can come in various hues from the light, pastel ones to the darker ones such as fuchsia and hot pink. Play with hues. You can start from a nice pastel pink color and add details in darker hues. Such as children’s bedding or a rug in hot pink. Of course, you would need to balance this out with a few white furnishing just so the room won’t end up looking monotonous. Pink is definitely fit for a princess so if you are decorating a room around that theme, the tips above would work very well for you.

Another common girls room color would be light blue. When one thinks of light blue, the sky and the sea immediately comes to mind thus making it a great color for an underwater themed room. Now, just like in the pink room, you should also choose a base color for the walls and then choose lighter or darker hues for the decoration. If you choose a nice dark blue for the wall, you should contrast that with very light colored furnishings. A light blue bed spread, bed and closet would do perfectly. Of course, white should also be present and it could be in the form of a rug, the color of the room’s moldings as well as in the furnishings. Perhaps you are wondering why you should decorate according to hue and not just mix and match colors, well, you can mix and match colors but sometimes that tends to look messy. Whilst decorating with a single color of varying hues would give the room a uniformed but still comfortable feeling. Plus, you won’t have a hard time trying to match everything together.

Color decorating can also be great help if you can’t think of a nice theme for your girls room. The color itself could become the theme which is not only easier when compared to having something like a French theme or a Princess theme. As I’ve said earlier, from one single color you can get numerous ideas for decoration. Just play around with the different hues to give the room depth. Never go for a single hue when decorating a room because doing so would leave it flat looking and too monotonous.

Sleeping Pretty As a Princess With Princess and Castle Theme Room Decor

Personalizing kids bedroom decor is a great way to make a child feel at home in their personal space. Painting your child’s name on her chair-back or desk-top, for example, gives her a sense of ownership over the space. Hanging your child’s own personal artwork on the walls helps build her self-esteem and sense of identity. But beyond that, what else can you do to make your child feel like her bedroom is her personal sanctuary? One sure-fire way to do it is to design a bed – the centerpiece of any bedroom – that reflects your child’s tastes and interests. And in the case of little girls, who often fancy themselves to be princesses in waiting, then there’s really no better way to accomplish this than with custom princess beds and castle theme room decor.

A custom princess castle bed is the ultimate piece of princess bedroom furniture to ensure your little girl sleeps pretty as a princess night after night. To help personalize that most important piece of custom kids bedroom furniture so that it stands out as your girls very own, consider some of the following design elements:

o Hearts – Every fairy tale with a princess in it is a love story at its heart. Decorating the princess furniture in hearts evokes that sense of being cherished, loved, safe, and secure that attracts so many little girls to princesses in the first place, and any time she wants, she can gaze wistfully at the bright, red valentines and think of the day she finds her dashing prince or her knight in shining armor.

o Stars – They’re not just for ceilings anymore. And though a starry filled night sky is a wonderful way to bring light and magic to an otherwise dark night, decorating her princess furniture – be it her custom castle bed, a chair, an armoire, a lampshade, curtains, the edges of her mirror, or the borders of her walls with stars brings that magical light into her life all throughout the day as well. As Jiminy Cricket says (and your little girl will be the first to tell you) “When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true”.

o Flowers – Floral decor adds vibrancy and life to any princess room decor, making it feel like a bright, warm spring or summery day indoors, even when the weather is cold and nasty outside. And one of the greatest things about flowers is that they come in all sorts of colors and shapes and sizes, allowing you endless variety in your girls room decor and unique childrens furniture design.

o Animals – If you look at most fairy tale storybooks and movies with princess in them, you will see that the princess usually has at least one beloved animal at her side most of the time, if not an entire menagerie of animals. And, if your princess is of the particularly daring and adventurous variety, then nothing says “fairy tale” more than a friendly, fiery dragon.

This is just a smattering of the innumerable creative elements you can incorporate into princess and castle theme bedroom decor to make your girls princess beds as unique as your little girl herself.

Adding Wall Art To Your Room Decor Using Traceable Wall Murals

Wall murals can add an artistic element to a plain or boring wall. You can cover all or just a portion of the wall. You can paint a mural on any wall of your home from a child’s room to a family room. Although there are those cookie cutter designs people are using, like commercial decals, stick ups, stencils, etc, painting your own mural design is an enriching process and enjoyable as a family project for all of your wall art. You trace the design onto the wall with the new traceable wall mural patterns and once satisfied, paint it in for a one-of-a-kind custom hand painted look. This really gets my creativity going!

I love the concept of adding a wall mural, but if you are hesitant to commit to a large scale wall mural, a smaller wall mural that will enhance the wall but not cover it completely. A full size wall mural definitely takes center stage as the focal point, but to make a smaller mural more impressive, you can add accent designs around the main character or design.You have the flexibility to choose from all kinds of designs, styles as well as themes.

You can add more than one mural in the same room which adds to your creativity and makes your room more appealing. It’s exciting to see such designs adding glamour and fun to your home’s wall decor. You and your kids will be so thrilled to have a new theme added to their walls, or yours, at the fraction of the costs of those popular commercial decals everyone is using! Why not do something different than everyone else and go for the look of having hired a professional muralist.

For the do-it-yourself touch, girls wall murals, can be applied to bare or painted walls – perfect for the little princess that wants to create her own customized designs.Wall murals can enhance your room decor if you have boys, from infants to teenagers, they would usually opt for a sports mural depicting their favorite sport, or go for a rock and roll theme, depicting guitars or a rock band or their favorite singer. Or maybe opt for something with sparkles, there are boys who love sparkles too you know, how exciting! Whether it be boys or girls, or yourself, there is always something that can be chosen that will ignite their passion and get them excited!
