8 DECORATING IDEAS FOR A LITTLE GIRL'S WONDERLAND

Lauren Graham

Your little tots first bedroom is an exciting decor project - creating a world of wonder and magic for her to play, sleep and escape.  We've collected some fresh decor trends, tips and tricks to inspire a colourful story fit for a princess:

1. WHITE FURNITURE IS TIMELESS

White is light, bright and versatile. It goes with most colour palettes easily,  so why not use it in your little ones's bedroom? White furniture will give you the opportunity to change your colour palette without having to buy new furniture as your little girl grows from tiny tot to toddler. Keep it neutral on the walls and buy versatile white furniture to keep mixing it up with colourful accessories:

Grown up furniture can be mixed and matched with kiddies furniture in all-white for a bedroom that will stand the test of time. Love the little mermaids we used on the quilt. See more online here.

 

2. IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE PINK

Forget tradition for a moment and explore the world of colour for your little princess. It's 2016 after all, and pink for girls and blue for boys can be old fashioned, not to mention limiting. Let your imagination run wild with fresh colour combinations and patterns.

We used new collection Playtime in this little girl's room and the combination of colours is a welcome break-away from the stereotypical pink decor we're used to seeing:

 

3. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS, DARLING

Although this little girl's room isn't pink, it still stays ever so cute with loads of playful patterns. Details like scatter cushions, ottomans, quilts and light shades done up in mix and match fabrics from collection Be Happy completes the look:

 We used new collection Playtime to achieve this stunning look, view the full collection online here.

4. COZY, COLOURFUL QUILTS

With winter well on its way, your little princess is going to need to be kept snug and warm. What better way to do this than with a gorgeous quilt made from some of your favourite fabrics? Take a look at these trendy little quilt ideas:

5. FORGET THE TREEHOUSE, YOUR TOT NEEDS A TEEPEE!  

We've been seeing the rise of the teepee in kids decor recently and it's easy to see why. These cute little tents make a gorgeous little hideaway for playtime and beyond. Not only will your little one love their tent,  but you get another opportunity to add some more character and charm to their room.

6. BE FURNITURE SAVVY

Your little one is going to grow up and eventually grow out of her crib and other furniture. Why not be smart about the growing up process with modular furniture? Modular furniture is designed to grow with your child, it has more than one use and can be a massive space-saver. Take a look at these clever pieces:

 

7. CREATE A BOOK NOOK

A little reading nook with all your little one's favourite books and teddies can give her the space to escape to a magical world of fairy godmothers and magical creatures. A comfy oversized cushion and simple wooden shelves mounted onto the wall can turn any corner into a cosy book nook:

A cost -effective way to spruce up a reading corner is by repainting an old bookshelf and covering the back with playful wallpaper:

A comfy bean bag is the perfect place to read with your little one. We love the idea of a custom bean bag designed in a fabric of your choice. Take a look at some options above from collection Cube.

 

8. MAKE TIDYING UP A BREEZE

No doubt your little girl's room will get messy every now and then, but with the right kind of storage, you can keep things clean, tidy and decorative.
