Your walls provide the perfect canvas for girls’ bedroom ideas that bring fantasies to life. Most art shops offer a range of pre-cut stencils, it’s possible to have custom shapes designed or you can cut your own out of lining paper. All you need to do for vertical walls is use a spray-on, low tack stencil adhesive to keep it in place and paint from the outside in for best results.
Take the imagination up high with clouds and hot air balloons in beautiful complementary shades of purple, blue and pink. For a fun, abstract look, cover a feature wall in shapes with muted, dusky tones. You’ll achieve a pretty, delicate look with lace stencils, whether you choose a dramatic pattern for a focal point or borders around trim, windows or doors.
The best way to enhance girls’ bedroom colours within your design is with bespoke furnishings for a personal touch. What does she love to do, dream about or explore? If she loves books, create a reading hideaway in a corner with a teepee, comfy cushions and fairy lights. Is she crafty? Set up her own desk with drawers for glittery supplies, in the knowledge that it’ll also provide the perfect spot for homework when the time comes. Princesses will love sleeping in canopy beds and fairyland comes to life at night with themed lamps to coat the walls in magical light.
You don’t have to commit to buying tins of paint in every shade of pink until you’re certain about your girls’ bedroom ideas. Download the free Dulux Visualizer app, snap some photos of the room and let augmented reality show you what your colour choices look like. You can also pick up Dulux paint tester pots from the hardware store or order them online. Make use of the leftover paint from your trials for those pretty stencils on the walls.
Once your design is complete, you can look forward to sitting back and watching your little girl shine in her very own world of wonder.
