While blue is often a go-to color for boys’ bedrooms, that doesn’t mean it’s no-girls-allowed. Take on this hue for a cool girl room idea. Whether you choose to go vibrant, pastel, or dark, use organic or floral prints, billowy window treatments, and layers of bedding to soften the look.

I love glamorous bedrooms that are sophisticated and not too glitzy. I love this bedroom because, even though it’s flowery, it has a masculine edge – due to the opulent dark walls and pared-back design integrity of the rest of the room. It’s a great bedroom for both men and women, which I like, as I think sometimes us ladies can sometimes take over the design of our bedrooms! Image credit

If you’re after a particular style, finding a piece that fits perfectly with your ideal can be an epic struggle. In the case of this shabby chic mirror, one would have been hard-pressed to find something akin to this particular Renaissance design in the modern day. Rather than settle on a less desirable piece, this gorgeous mirror was hand-crafted from an old door, transformed into a mirror frame. Finding an old door to refurbish also grants the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind piece, and will more than likely carry a much less hefty price tag than a similar antique or antique-inspired article.
Colours enhance your mood, so choosing the right colour for your bedroom can actually improve your sleep pattern. Green and blue are excellent bedroom colours. Lilac has a stress reducing effect, as does white. If you do decide to go for complete white walls, incorporating different textures and patterns can add depth and warmth to your bedroom. White bedrooms exemplify style and evoke a peaceful ambience. Incorporating natural textures and wood to white bedrooms will prevent your room from looking clinical and cold. Monochrome accents work well with white bedrooms too.
Every princess bedroom needs a touch of glitter, and since lights are a lot like glitter, it makes all good sense to make switches shine bright. These may not be easy to come by, but the good news is you can make them yourself. faithfullyfree.
A large, skinny room is perfect for a row of twin beds at a beach house where lots of little ones come to visit. This one in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, also features an upstairs loft with even more sleeping space.
This is what was our playroom. I snapped a few shots right before we started moving furniture. I left the mess for you as well. ? If you want to see the playroom at the height of organization (and full of ideas for your own toy storage) you can read my post about Toy Storage: Kid’s Playroom Reorganization.
We want to eventually put in sliding closet doors for her closet. We still have the original doors, but they are two doors that swing open. When we used to have them in this room, they were forever knocking into the door to the room and it was just a pain. I think sliding doors are the way to go.
When it comes to children’s decor, my eye is always drawn to white, airy rooms with playful details to add warmth and colour. Jenson’s gender neutral nursery is a perfect example of this, with his sweet ladybug bedding and special wooden toys out on display. There’s space to let him play unrestricted, with stylish storage boxes to tidy away any clutter afterwards. It’s also a room that can easily grow with him for years to come. Whilst monochrome is the trend of the moment, it can be surprisingly tricky to get right. The key is to find a balance and you can do this by adding in more soft tones and textures such as wooden accents, a fun wallpaper or contrasting prints. Not only does it make the space more interesting, but it doesn’t restrict you to one overly coordinated look. Have fun with styling and sourcing your key pieces and it will shine through in your child’s room! Image Credit: Holly Nicholls from Jenson & Beau
