Teenage girls’ room decorating ideas generally differ from those of boys. When decorating a teen girl’s bedroom, consider making it fit for a princess; after all, her room is her castle. Here are 25 ideas for teenage girls’ rooms.
This bedroom belongs to Vanessa and James Macdonald’s son, Rupert, at their family home in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire. The red gingham of the headboard and armchair compliments the patterned red and white curtains. Soft neutral colours in the carpet and on the walls allows the red to pleasantly pop rather than overwhelm the room.
The small white bedroom on the second floor of this Victorian terrace house had been painted a rather gloomy blue. To make the most of the light, newlyweds Sophie and Dan opted to repaint the room with Dulux’s ‘Pure Brilliant White’ while lemon yellow accents bring further warmth to the room. The divan bed is furnished with a buttoned ‘Bekkestua’ headboard from Ikea and the cane mirror hung over the bed was bought on a trip to Saffron Walden.
Eye-popping aqua makes a statement in this bedroom as a striking backdrop for crisp white trim and girl’s bedroom accessories. Pops of pink, inspired by the cherry blossom tree painted on the wall, contrast the room’s ultra-colorful walls. Through the white doors, a bright white room awaits with furniture placed to make it the perfect reading nook. Subtle girl’s room themes like this can grow with her into teen years and beyond.

Uncluttered and calm, a sanctuary from the hectic world outside. Image credit
On the hunt for gorgeous bedroom ideas? We spend around one third of our lives in bed, so it seems only fitting that our bedroom should be as beautiful as possible.

Floorboards of Baltic pine were laid throughout the first floor of Robin Muir’s house designed by Caroline Holdaway, including this spare bedroom.

OK so im 14 and i hav 2 share a really small room with my 11 and 16 year old sisters. We definitely cant afford any of this stuff and it wouldnt fit anyway. i think maybe you should put cheap but cute ides out there instead of all this rich kid stuff.
Mix in old with the new to craft a look that is as unique as your little girl. A monogrammed bedspread is a classic, but done up in magenta, it has a decidedly modern edge. Mod flower curtains contrast with vintage toile-print pillows. The curtains are hung at ceiling height to emphasize the large bold pattern of the fabric.
Bright pops of colour are a simple, stylish choice for a kids’ room and works well against plain white walls. Make it modern by using accent colours not just on cushions, but beds, furniture and even the window shutters.

Upstairs in the main bedroom of this farmhouse in the Chilterns hangs a collection of John Nash watercolours. ‘I love them, they represent my England; it makes me happy looking at them,’ says the owner. The magnificent Tabriz carpet is reputed to have come from the house of the poet and arts patron Edward James, West Dean in Sussex. The neutral walls allow pieces such as the bold Tabriz carpet and dark wood chest to take centre stage.
This is my ideal bedroom style, I love the use of soft and subtle tones with small injections of colour such as the yellow used in bedside accessory bowl and the brass used on those gorgeous twin wall lamps. Whilst the room is light, with a large window, the space is warm and welcoming with the help of a plush throw, soft sheets and a complementing headboard to the bed. Image credit
When it comes to storage (especially in a small space) the more the merrier. Choose beds and nightstands that can all do double duty. Top it all off with a witty, decorative touch – in this case, a print out of a favourite poem affixed to the wall with washi tape and framed.
We all want the same thing from our bedrooms—a sanctuary from the wear and tear of our daily lives, somewhere cosy and refreshing where we can recharge our batteries.
