For the longest time, girls have been associated with their love for pink. Most parents, therefore, have been working hard to ensure that their little ones get a room that meets their girlish demands. Since World War II, baby color norms have been taking a new direction. People strongly focus on blue for boys and pink for girl’s tradition. However, due to mass marketing techniques, the systems have been differing to ensure that the rooms remain neutral for both boys and girls.
Different colors have, therefore, been on the market defining different genders. Either way, this has been driving girls towards pink with the drive coming from the parents as well. For some unknown reasons, this drive has been making it hard for girls to enjoy their sophisticated nature when they attain a certain age.
When decorating a girl’s bedroom, it’s good to note that she will use the room even when she becomes a teen. Therefore, the decoration should be done in a way that it has both a princess’ look and sophisticated touch for her old age. Here is how to decorate a girl’s room and stay away from the pink color completely.
- Beddings basics
Beddings are the centerpiece for every bedroom. For every girl, a beautiful bed to sleep and dream on is very essential. Regardless of the beddings being girlish and pink or sophisticated and cool, you should ensure that they all blend in and give an overall image that will keep your little girl happy.
- Color basics
All your colors should have the same theme with different shades. When others consider pink or blue, go for a cool color like green, yellow or grey on the walls. Give the room a unique and welcoming theme color that will not be little your girl when she attains a certain age. Always keep in mind that she will grow up with the room and there are times when she will not be happy with toys around.
Additionally, purple and pink are not the only colors for girls. You can go red and blend it with light shades of ballerina pink. With these colors, all you need is to ensure that you include unique paints of the same color to complement the entire room.
- Finishing touches
This is where all the credits go. Make the bedroom unique, special and attractive. Keep everything right with its purposes. Divide the room into subsections to give the girl freedom and chance to incorporate new things. Select a table section with mirrors to serve as a dressing area and study section too. On the table, have drawers that can be used for books and toy hideouts. Have a few bears with different colors to synchronize the entire room. Additionally, you can implement the use of trundle beds for few friends’ sleepovers.
Alternatively, you can find a cool and attractive baby cot mattress on one side of the room and improve it with trundle beds on the other side. Girls are very sensitive and they will always note even the slightest changes you make to improve their room. Unlike boys, girls will always want to be in charge of their room and the type of paints you incorporate.
Another thing about girls is that they will always want to feel and know their rooms are different from their friends. Therefore, painting and decorating the room pink will only make them similar to the others. In return, their self-esteem will deteriorate and it may make your little angle lose her self-confidence when she becomes a grownup.
As you decorate the girl’s bedroom, it’s good to keep it simple and unique. Ensure that all her young age fantasies are not outshined by the adulthood preparation you are making in advance. Give the room a sophisticated image but still keep it girlish with the entire princess’ nature. Let your daughter enjoy the pleasure of her own little room at all ages without feeling you have over done the decorations or exaggerated her color tastes. Finally, keep your mind open and be ready to renovate the room whenever you feel she is unhappy.
