Not all little girls adore Barbies, the color pink and frilly dresses. Perhaps your little girl has very definite ideas about what she likes and doesn’t like, what pleases her and what annoys her, how things should and shouldn’t be done. As a parent you love her individuality and strive to help her express her ideas, preferences and thoughts in her own unique way. A little girl’s room should be an expression of her personality as much as a cozy place for her to play, dream, love and laugh. So how do you decorate a unique little girl’s room? With unique children’s décor and accessories of course! Here are three unique ideas for decorating your unique little girl’s room. Other very individual girls have found the perfect decorations to complete their room in their own individual way and yours can too!
- Divide and Conquer – A creative, unique girl might have several devoted interests with equal passion for each, making a room décor theme difficult to choose. Say your unique girl has equal zeal for zebras, butterflies and soccer. Try dividing her room into segments or stations and decorating that area for each particular interest. One corner can sport a soccer jersey hanging on the wall, a container stuffed full of soccer balls, a bookshelf with soccer ball bookends, soccer books and a soccer ball lamp. One wall might be decorated with zebra and other zoo animal art with zebra stuffed animals arranged on a black and white children’s rug. The window to her bedroom might be framed by stenciled butterflies. Beautiful framed butterfly artwork will give the room a happy and joyous feel. All her favorite interests can be showcased in her room in a delightful and pleasing way.
- Mish-mash Bedding – Your unique girl will want to sleep in a unique bed with unique bedding. This is one area of your girl’s room that you have nearly unlimited options in choosing a design for her sheets, comforter, pillows and blankets. Perhaps she wants to express herself with more than one design. Perhaps she wants to compile all her favorite designs into her one bed. Let her! Try purchasing a sheet set of her favorite princess, a comforter with a space design, a pillow case set chalk full of zoo animals and retro-shaped decorative pillows. It may bother you as a parent that the entire ensemble doesn’t match, but your unique girl will adore it!
- Mix-it-Up Wall Art – Instead of purchasing seven pieces of wall art depicting various princesses for your little girl’s room, try alternating her favorite scenes with colorful patterns and educational art. Large wall maps are educational as well as a great artwork centerpiece to give symmetry to smaller works. Try centering your main art on the wall and positioning the smaller pieces around it in a fun pattern. A truly unique girl might love her initials spelled out with her art pieces- two ways to express her identity on the same wall!
A unique girl deserves a unique bedroom decorated just for her. Help her celebrate the uniqueness that is so special inside her!
