Damask wallpaper is a soft substitute for the neon, and a new window seat adds the perfect place to curl up with a book. A chandelier, whitewashed furniture, and pink curtains add final shabby chic touches
You’re not limited to whites or neutrals when it comes to the wall color of a small bedroom. “I don’t buy into that whole ‘Never paint a small room a dark color’ design dogma,” says Humphrey. “I say embrace the size and moodiness of a small room and even play into it. Painting a room a charcoal gray or navy blue or olive green can be chic and sexy.”
For girls who like a subtle vintage/ classic country style, the shabby chic bedroom is a winning option. Sit ditsy florals and mix-and-match furniture in front of a wall hung with your teen’s personal gallery, and finish with quirky vintage accents, such as a tailor’s dummy (which doubles up as a clothes horse!).
Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later.
I love everything about this bedroom. It’s simplicity and minimalistic approach is what’s really appealing. Those white wooden floorboards are just totally divine and make the room so bright and airy. I just love a room that has white walls and flooring because it is the perfect backdrop for adding colourful accessories. For me it also gives a sense of tranquillity. Let’s not forget to mention the hanging light bulb, such a beautiful and simple feature. What I am also lusting after is the clothes rail. Having your clothes out on show gives it a feminine touch to your room and feels very Carrie Bradshaw – just to need to make sure to be super tidy! Image credit
Furnishing a small bedroom can be a challenge as the space needs to be used wisely. Placing your bed at an angle, mirrors on wardrobes and cupboards and built in wardrobes, are some small bedroom ideas you can implement. They are excellent space savers and the mirrored panels create the illusion of extra space. Beds with storage space are also good for smaller bedrooms, allowing you to keep all bits and pieces out of sight.
If you need more storage space for your clothing, but don’t have room for a piece of free-standing furniture, consider installing a built-in dresser. Not handy enough to tackle the task? No problem! Carpenters typically charge between $25-$35 an hour and hiring a professional will ensure the job gets done right and that you have heaps of hidden storage, too. Photo courtesy of Camila Pavone.
This is an incredibly unique Princess bed, inspired by the story of Cinderella. The detail on the metallic semi-open pumpkin carriage is gorgeous and it serves as a perfect center piece to this girly baby pink room.
Designing a kid’s space is arguably one of the most difficult home projects to tackle — how do you make an investment that the little (soon-to-be big) ones won’t grow out of in a year? Turns out, it’s not impossible. Take inspiration from these parents, who have mastered the art of transforming kitschy, boring, outdated spaces into a child’s dream room.
Tweens are notorious for being a fan of one thing one week to totally flipping and loving something else the next. Shelving and under-bed storage leave room for them to store things until they’re cool again.
How fun are they? A lot of these ideas are super easy, but will still give you a really awesome look and some of them are a little harder and may need some assistance. If you spend nearly as much time in your room as I do in mine, they will all be well worth it.

This is a photo of my 8 year old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends. Image credit
This bedroom resides in a period home with high ceilings, classically inspired mouldings and beautiful parquet flooring. As if that isn’t enough, it’s filled with a mixture of mid-century furniture and lighting, breathtaking art and a sophisticated and restrained colour palette. For me it is the embodiment of ‘timelessness’. It will look as good in ten or twenty years time, just as it wouldn’t have looked out of place thirty years ago. It’s also impossible to tell if the owner is male of female. Another sign of simple good taste. And yet, it’s no museum piece, and has all the attributes of a comfortable and restorative bedroom. The pillows are plump and smooth. There’s an extra wool blanket to ward off winter chills. There’s a warm rug for bare feet, and the reading lights are positioned just where they are most effective. There’s even candles handy for when the mood dictates. If I was to add anything, it might be a padded headboard, but then the artwork wouldn’t be centre stage. That’s another word for this room. Considered. Image credit

A girls bedroom furniture is an essential component of the design. You can choose from a wide variety of furniture pieces that are specifically created for little girls or search for pieces that can be used when she is a teenager and adult. For example, a dresser with an attached mirror will look attractive in your daughters when she is young but will become useful as she matures into an adolescent and room rooms to go wearing makeup. Similarly a trundle bed will last for many years in a small girls room and provide an extra place for your daughter’s friends to sleep when she has slumber parties. It is also perfect for a shared girls room because it can be tucked away during the day to free up space in the room. Other small room design ideas that will save space try searching for pretty white bunk beds or a lofted bed which you can put a desk or dresser underneath. When she is older she can even put a futon underneath for a fun place to hang out with her friends.
During the initial design stages we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug. Image credit
These five princesses are checking out some cool styles from the ‘60s. Help them create a bunch of awesome retro outfits that practically scream “flower power!” in this online dress up and design game for girls.
No princess will simply have her toys in a regular bin, so you need to make it special. A pink bird’s nest is a cute and cool functional and decorative idea that is not too difficult to bring to life. source.
Small bedrooms are often short on storage, so take advantage of every inch of wasted space. Antique dough bowls, large baskets, plastic bins or rolling drawers create easy-to-use extra storage under your bed. Helpful Hint: Save even more space by filling your containers with items sealed in vacuum space bags. Photo courtesy by Janice Donlan.

Listen. I’m seventeen and frankly I don’t know anyone my age who’d actually like one of these rooms (no offense). They all just seem so busy and cluttered. I admit, the loft is totally awesome and having a bathroom in my room would be a dream come true, but next time, try designing something more simplier. That way the teen can decorate it with things THEY like. Sorry for the harsh criticism. ?
I like most of them. They are right, they are quite unrealisitc. But these are options. Plus Sanydy’s right. They aren’t just for you. They’re for every girl out there. The girly one, the tomboy. the artsy, the jock, EVERYONE. So you may not like it, but that doesn’t mean there not good designs.They each have great color and beautiful peices that coordinate well with each other. The pictures are something that could be totally different! These weren’t meant to be copied exactly. Just to give you ideas and peices. And that’s coming from a thirteen year old girl aspiriring to be and interior designer.
Thank you for your comment, I apologise but I can’t seem to see the princess castle printed blinds in the our article, however the children’s bed with curtains is by petitevintageinteriors.com.au so you may still be able to find this on their site.
Ballerinas are pretty to look at and little girls simply love them, so having a painting or mural of dancers is a great idea for a little princess’s room. You don’t need to be able to design or paint yourself, because these are fairly easy to come by, even as digital prints, nowadays. source.
