Have a little lady in your life who loves Fancy Nancy or Disney princesses? Make her fairy-tale dreams come true with these ideas for creating a princess bedroom.
Delight your daughter with a girl’s bedroom full of storybook designs, whimsical accessories and dreamy themes. Sherri Blum, certified interior decorator and owner of Jack and Jill Interiors, says “Whether you want a generally feminine feel to the room or full-blown castle/princess theme, the market is saturated with choices.”
Your little girl can be the ruler of her roost with these bedroom decorating ideas.
The colorful princess
“You don’t need to fill the room with castles and crowns in order to give it an air of royal opulence,” says Blum. She recommends pink or lavender walls to provide a feminine and youthful backdrop. And what princess-themed room is complete without some majestic artwork or tapestries? Try this portable mural wall hanging.
Convey the “I’m a princess” message through white furniture or pieces with plenty of curves and carved accents, suggests Blum. “Add a sweet canopy to the bed or a cornice with drapery over the headboard to bring a subtle princess effect and help accentuate the room’s focal point,” she adds, recommending this indulgent four-poster bed. Or consider a fun and functional item, like this revolving princess bookcase. If new furniture is out of your price range, “consider painting a curtain backdrop onto the wall behind the head of the bed.”
For the primping princess
Creating a dress-up station is one way to allow your princess to indulge in her grooming rituals any time of the day. She can make sure that tiara is perfectly in place and tend to her hair and attire with a skirted vanity and stool.
Even if your budget doesn’t match your princess’ demands, think small but effective, like velvet or silk curtains and pillows, gold or silver tassels and trims. “Even glue or stitch some pretty clear or pink ‘crystals’ to lampshades, pillows and valances to add more sparkle,” suggests Blum. Or add glass or crystal pulls and knobs to drawers for some extra-special shimmer.
Floor-to-ceiling princess theme
An ultimate statement of nobility is the crystal chandelier. Some of Blum’s favorites are this delicate pink and glass swag chandelier and this charming pink-shaded chandelier. And don’t forget the princess rug for an authentic storybook setting.
The crowning glory in princess room design
For the parent who spares no expense for their princess’ aristocratic tastes, this fantasy coach is an extraordinary example of bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! For amazing custom design, Sweet Dream Bed can recreate your child’s greatest fairytale imaginable through extreme designs, structures and murals.
