Every little girl dreams of having a fairytale bedroom, even the ones
that can act like a real tom-boy! Use your daughter's childhood years
to create memories that will stay with her for a lifetime. It's
really not as difficult as it sounds!
All it takes is some creativity and a little bit of shopping. It
doesn't even have to cost a lot to transform a ho-hum bedroom into a
little girl's dream land fantasy world. This is the time to let out
your own little inner kid and have some fun!
The fairytale concept covers alot of themes, from castles,
princesses, knights and dragons, to fairies with lots of glitter and
lace (of course), so the first step is to figure out what your little
girl would really enjoy. That's an easy one to figure out...just ask!
Let's look at some designs that might be perfect for a young lady's
ZZ Designs is a pretty popular bedding designer that you may have
heard of- they offer several selections you may want to consider.
The first is their Fairy Princess Bedding set which includes a quilt
featuring a castle motif with a creative hem that reflects the shapes
of the towers of the castle. Placed over a white bed skirt with white
frilly or billowing drapes, this choice of 100% cotton can begin your
dream bedroom design.
The color scheme of the bedding includes white, pink, lavender, and
purple. You can even add a canopy for her bed with 10 yards of
shimmery fabric to really finish off look. Just put a nice stable
hook in the ceiling at the center of her bed and then let the fabric
halves hang and billow from the center down, and attach toward all
the corners of the bed. There are other more detailed instructions
for creating your own canopy type effects, just type it in to your
browser! Pretty nifty!
Another ZZ Designs selection you'll want to check out is called A
Little Sugar and Spice. Shades of pink vary from very light to a more
dark pink. The 100% cotton quilt features bows, hearts, butterflies
and flowers. Each pillow sham features three beautiful hearts. This
set is available up to queen size.
California Kids Company offers a quilt that could become the
decorating center piece of the perfect little girl's fairytale bedroom.
The hand-made 100% cotton quilt features appliqués of a
castle, carriage, slipper and other princess designs. This line
provides lots of choices because the same design is available as a
duvet cover, and both the quilt and duvet cover are available up to
queen size. Matching print sheets, pillow shams and bed skirt, dust
ruffle, window dressing, bed canopy for camelback or regular canopies
and a whole collection of other accessories give you lots to mix and
match to best fit your space.
No matter what bedding you choose, you'll definitely want to add
something like the Princess Castle lamp by CK Designs. A pink castle
with blue accents holds a pink shade on the tallest tower top. The
lamp is operated by a pull chain which features a glow in the dark
quarter moon to make the lamp easy to find in the dark.
This is a thoughtful choice for any little girl's fantasy bedroom.
It's often difficult to teach children to sleep alone in the dark but
the comforting presence of the shining moon can be used to comfort
her that SHE is in control and can get to the light easily if she
wakes up frightened or has a bad dream.
A beautiful touch for a bedroom with few windows but a lot of wall
space is That's My Room's Castle Window Mural. It creates the feel of
a stone arch window facing toward another beautiful castle in the
distance. This can add an airy touch to a bedroom that has no
attractive outdoor scenery to open the windows toward.
could hang a billow length of satiny cloth around the mural so it
looks like real drapes- and you'll have a very realistic looking
window added to your child's castle!
How about adding some neat little finishing touches like a glittery
wand, some sparkly little shoes that you could customize with glitter
and lace. You could buy a few little castle figurines and place them
just so for the perfect daydreams!
Decorating for your little princess can be fun. If you never had the
dream bedroom you always wanted, you know how much a perfect bedroom
can mean. So fulfill your little girl's dreams while you can!
All too soon she will grow up and move into her very own castle.
