Guest Picks: Suggestions for a Sophisticated Girl’s Bedroom

If I could design girls’ rooms all day, I would be one happy designer! Anything goes at a young girl’s room, especially pattern and color. A mixture of investment bits with cheap items, picture elements and storage solutions will result in a classic room to last from the tween to adult years. — Vanessa from Decor Joyful


MP3 Alarm Clock Docking Station and Speakers – $59.95

This combination alarm clock/iPod charger with speakers is just perfect for your own tune-loving girl.

Conventional Bedding – $125

What woman, young or old, doesn’t adore Kate Spade? The embroidered dragonflies and grosgrain ribbon trim with this Egyptian cotton duvet cover include a note of whimsy.

Contemporary Upholstery Fabric – $21.95

Fabric is almost always a great jumping off point to get a colour scheme. I would upholster a curvy headboard with this gorgeous, floral fabric. The turquoise, citrine and gray-brown colors are fresh and pretty.

Traditional Headboards

If you are a savvy DIY-er, you could easily make a custom headboard. Otherwise, an upholsterer can make your vision a reality. I adore the simple curve of this one.

Conventional Nightstands And Bedside Tables

Solid wood pieces are an investment that can be handed down from 1 generation to another. All these Canadian-made bedside tables possess ample storage, and the wood tone pops up any space. The clean, simple Shaker layout gives this piece longevity.

Contemporary Table Lamps – $228.91

I’m a longtime lover of gourd lamps. This peacock beauty picks up on the colors in the headboard fabric and makes a significant statement.

Contemporary Dressers Chests And Bedroom Armoires – $799

The softly bowed drawer fronts onto this dresser include femininity and elegance.

2 Tone Round Mirror – $315.01

I would hang this big, gorgeous gold tone mirror over the dresser.

Eclectic Rugs – CAD 1,800

When I watched these Second Life carpets at ELTE, I couldn’t help but wonder whose home they’d graced during their 40-plus year lifespan. Each conventional Turkish carpet is stripped of its own colour and given a new life with vibrant dyes in a rainbow of colors.

Contemporary Pillows – $39.95

I would place two of those velvet cushions in front of white pillow shams on the mattress.

Eclectic Pillows – $50

This pillow adds a picture punch to the bed when put in front of the two chartreuse upholstered cushions.

Contemporary Chandeliers

This chandelier is a touch on the expensive side but I’m sure you could find the look for less. It is glam and edgy at the exact same time and will bring sparkle to a bedroom.


Teramo Curtain Panels – $79.95

Every room can use a tiny zigzag. I would hang those drapes with pins on the rear tabs, which will make the look of a pleat as opposed to the rod pocket. They will seem more luxe and not as casual as a result.

Contemporary Desks – $299

If the bedroom has space for this, a desk or vanity provides additional storage and a place to apply cosmetics or do homework. This one is simple, practical and cheap to boot.

Conventional Chairs – $299

A comfortable upholstered seat seat will ensure your girl spends time required on her research!

Eclectic Bookcases Cabinets And Computer Armoires – $594

An area to store books and exhibit accessories and treasures is essential in a young girl’s room. I adore the distressed wood and white lacquer finish with this piece.

Mediterranean Ottomans And Cubes – $249

A Moroccan pouf adds that well-worn, traveled feel to a space and provides seating when friends are over. All these are sewn by hand by artisans in Marrakesh.

LUXE FUME Diptyque Print by Anne Harwell – $40

Every room needs art! These perfume bottle prints will up the woman factor in any area.

Eclectic Accessories And Decor – $49

This jewellery holder reminds me of a tiered cake rack. It has a lot of space to store earrings, necklaces and the like.

Eclectic Toilet Storage – $28

These glass jars will be perfect to store little girly things such as hair accessories.
