As a mother I find it deeply satisfying to style my daughter’s bedroom. It’s always good fun to pick funky new decor to freshen up her space and make it her own. The teenage years are such as an important time for girls to find themselves and develop a style. Spending some time together to pick decorations and furniture that really suit them is a big part of that process.
Many girls don’t want to go full princess, but there is still a way how you can keep it really feminine yet not too “girly”. Try mix up the classical hues of pink and purple with some more sober yet stylish items in silver and gold. If you don’t want to overload a room, just place some carefully selected bright accents such as pillows or rugs and keep most of the other items more neutral.
You don’t need to invest a lot of money to freshen up an existing room, or to turn a little girl’s room into a teen room. Just replace curtains, rugs, linen and pillows. Hang some new pictures and invest in one or two decorative items. To save money, learn sewing and make your own cushions and curtains. A modern sewing machine is a great investment and will also help you with quick alterations, Halloween costumes and school projects.
The style you would want to go for should be cool and understated, yet original and funky. Since your little girl is now growing into a women you will need to respect her wishes and I would suggest you involve her in the shopping process. Many girls that age have strong opinions about their likes and dislikes and what is your taste may not necessarily be hers. Also, don’t pick items because they go with your house, rather let her create her own world which can be her refuge and her very own space.
The girl’s room decor I selected for you below all cost under $50 and they are also great presents for girls that are just about to find their way into the adult world.
